I am pleased to announce, after 11 years from the last release, that
GNU Barcode 0.99 is out now.

GNU Barcode is a tool to convert text strings to printed bars. It
supports a variety of standard codes to represent the textual strings
and creates postscript output.

Main features of GNU Barcode:

- Available as both a library and an executable program
- Supports UPC, EAN, ISBN, CODE39 and other encoding standards
- Postscript and Encapsulated Postscript output
- Accepts sizes and positions as inches, centimeters, millimeters
- Can create tables of barcodes (to print labels on sticker pages)

* Noteworthy changes in release 0.99

** New features

   Support for i18n.
   Change license to GPLv3 or later version.
   SVG support.
   Added support for PCL output.
