problem with replacing my plot labels with LaTeX code using the psfrag package. Everything worked perfectly with the earlier version and the exact same plots, but now psfrag leaves all labels unchanged. I use Kile on Ubuntu 11.04 for LaTeX editing.

Indeed ps export seems to have changed in version 8. Labels are now exported as single characters, rather than as words at a whole, which breaks psfrag replacement (loosely speaking, I know nothing about the innards of ps). I didn't bother to look for a solution, I just export from version 7. But I agree, a solution to this would be nice, as I don't want to keep v.7 around for ages!
