- CUPS v2.1.0 (summary) - Improved support for IPP Everywhere, adds support for advanced logging using journald on Linux and ASL on OS X, and includes new security features for encrypted printing and reduced network visibility in the default configuration. - CUPS v2.1.0 (final, bug fix release) - Fixed more scheduler crash bugs in the new logging code (STR #4687, STR #4690) - The scheduler did not use the ConfigFilePerm setting when copying PPD files or interface scripts attached to a request (STR #4703) - Now support new Chinese locale IDs and their correct fallback locales (<rdar://problem/22086642>, <rdar://problem/22130168>) - "make check" incorrectly reported an expectation of 18 warning messages when 8 were expected (STR #4684) - The new PDF file type rule did not work (STR #4692) - Fixed some configure script issues (STR #4694, STR #4695, STR #4698) - Documentation updates (STR #4691, STR #4693) - CUPS v2.1rc1 (Release Candidate, bug fix release) - Added support for 3D printers (basic types only, no built-in filters) based on PWG white paper. - Fixed bugs in the new journald support (STR #4655, STR #4658, STR #4661) - Fixed domain socket support on Linux (STR #4679) - Fixed signal handlers in the dnssd and usb backends (STR #4671) - <Limit All> in <Policy> sections now applies to all operations when used by itself (STR #4659) - Configure script changes for systemd support (STR #4669) - Updated autoconf sources to use newer form of AC_INIT (STR #4664) - CUPS Filters v1.0.74 release on 25 August 2015 (Till) - cups-browsed: Added NULL check when getting the notification of a printer starting to process a job and checking whether this printer is created by cups-browsed with the implicitclass: backend (Ubuntu bug #1488524). - backends: Include unistd.h and fcntl.h in backend-private.h for all platforms, not only Linux, so that the backends build also on non-Linux platforms (Bug #1308). - cups-browsed: Do not schedule printers for update when they are already marked as disappeared. - cups-browsed: Added sanity checks when saving the default printer selection in a file. - cups-browsed, implicitclass: If remote queues disappear or cups-browsed shuts down and a cups-browsed-generated queue still has jobs and needs to be kept therefore, disable it and re-enable it when cups-browsed starts again and/or the remote queue(s) reappear(s). This avoids repeated retries of the jobs while the remote server is not available, causing unneeded system load and battery consumption. - cups-browsed: After polling info from remote CUPS servers to find the best destination job, set the default CUPS server back to local - CUPS Filters v1.0.73 release on 18 August 2015 (Till) - Released minutes after 1.0.72 due to a forgotten file - cups-browsed: Added missing utils/org.cups.cupsd.Notifier.xml file. - CUPS Filters v1.0.72 release on 18 August 2015 (Till) - Last major feature release before Feature Freeze of Ubuntu 15.10 - cups-browsed, implicitclass: Added load balancing functionality. If there are several remote CUPS printers with the same name, they for locally a cluster represented by a print queue with this name. This printer prints through a special backend (implicitclass) which makes cups-browsed find the best destination remote queue (fewest jobs, enabled) for this job. - cups-browsed: Added protection against accidental deletion of print queues generated by cups-browsed. These queues now get automatically re-created. - cups-browsed: Added LDAP support. Appropriately configured via cups-browsed.conf remote printers made available via LDAP will be looked up and local queues pointing to them created. Thanks to Raphael Geissert (atomo64 at gmail dot com) for contributing this patch (Debian bug #795185). - cups-browsed: Introduced new handling for the default printer using cache files. So we do not need to keep an auto-generated queue because it is set as default printer. If the auto-generated queue disappears, the old local printer is set as default again and when it re-appears it returns to be the default printer. - cups-browsed: Added infrastructure for subscribing to CUPS notifications for things like improved default printer handling, load balancing, ... - foomatic-rip: Prevent crash when supplying "media" option with empty value ("media=", Ubuntu bug #1479871). - pdftoopvp: Adaptations to API changes on Poppler 0.34.0, note that this patch disables color management in this filter. Thanks to Vincent le Garrec and Andreas K. Huettel for the patch (Bug #1301, Gentoo bug #554782). - libcupsfilters, bannertopdf, foomatic-rip, gstoraster, pdftoijs, sys5ippprinter, pdftoopvp, pdftops, pdftoraster, rastertoescpx, urftopdf, texttopdf: Miscellaneous fixes for build compatibility with different platforms, like config.h as very first include and so on. Thanks to Richard Palo for the patch (Bug #1264). - texttopdf: Request the generic 'monospace' font alias from fontconfig instead of the hard-coded FreeMono. Thanks to Fabian Greffrath (fabian at debian dot org) for the patch (Debian bug #788048).
