Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.13.4, Package name: cups-filters-1.13.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

CUPS is a standards-based, open source printing system developed
by Apple Inc. for Mac OS X and other UNIX-like operating systems.
CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") and provides System
V and Berkeley command-line interfaces, a web interface, and a C
API to manage printers and print jobs.

This distribution contains backends, filters, and other software
that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is no longer
maintained by Apple Inc. In addition it contains additional filters
and software developed independently of Apple, especially filters
for the PDF-centric printing workflow introduced by OpenPrinting
and a daemon to browse Bonjour broadcasts of remote CUPS printers
and makes these printers available locally.

From CUPS 1.6.0 on, this package is required for using printer
drivers with CUPS under Linux. With CUPS 1.5.x and earlier this
package can be used optionally to switch over to PDF-based printing.
In that case some filters are provided by both CUPS and this package.
Then the filters of this package should be used.

Log message:
Update print/cups-filters to cups-filters-1.13.4

 - libcupsfilters: Let PPD generator for driverless printing
   not error out when there is no urf-supported or
   pwg-raster-document-resolution-supported IPP attribute,
   simply accept the default resolution also from the
   printer-resolution-default attribute or set a default value
   of 300 dpi to get a working PPD file.
 - cups-browsed: Do not use deprecated names for IPP status
 - cups-browsed: Corrected determination whether an IPP status
   is an error, to avoid "Unable to create/modify CUPS queue
   (Success)" and infinite repetition of a succeeded operation
   (Debian bug #852436).

Log message:
Update print/cups-filters to cups-filters-1.13.3

pkgsrc changes:
 - Add --with-apple-raster-filter=rastertopdf to CONFIGURE_ARGS to avoid
   possible PLIST issues with cups<2.2.2 (with cups>=2.2.2 urftopdf is no
   longer built)

 - libcupsfilters: When auto-generating PPD files added support
   for passing through JPEG input to printers which understand
   JPEG. This is also done in CUPS-generated PPDs (Debian bug
 - libcupsfilters: Added the "output-bin" option support from
   CUPS' PPD generator to our PPD generator (CUPS Issue #4938).
 - cups-browsed: Make support for printers with IPv6 IP address
   work. Both link-local and regular addresses work.

Log message:

        - cupsfilters.drv: Corrected cupsFilter entry for the "Generic
          IPP Everywhere Printer".
        - driverless: Fixes on the man page
        - driverless: Do not error-exit (non-zero status) when run by
          CUPS as backend or PPD generator when no driverless printer
          is found or Avahi not running. When run from thr command
          line, exit status is the same as of ippfind.
        - imagetoraster: Removed (incomplete) PWG Raster support. For
          PWG Raster output we let the rastertopwg filter from CUPS do
          the finalization (mainly adding white pixels at the borders
          to get a full-page bitmap).
        - imagetoraster: Fixed several bugs in the calculation of the
          page geometry
        - libcupsfilters: If the IPP-polled printer has the
          "sides-supported" attribute, determine the need of a
          "Duplex" option solely whether the attribute has a
          "two-sided-long-edge" choice and ignore the "duplex"
          parameter of the ppdCreateFromIPP() function call. This lets
          the more precise information coming from the IPP query
          always be preferred against information from the Bonjour
        - driverless: When listing printers let the device ID contain
          "AppleRaster" (for Apple Raster printers) and \ 
          (for IPP Everywhere printers) in the "CMD" field.
        - driverless: Added "-T 3" to the ippfind command line. This
          makes ippfind search the Bonjour broadcasts for up to 3
          seconds when searching for IPP printers, raising the
          reliability in finding all of them
