Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.22.5, Package name: cups-filters-1.22.5, 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that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is no longer
maintained by Apple Inc. In addition it contains additional filters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:
cups-filters updated to 1.22.5

CHANGES IN V1.22.5
- foomatic-rip: Changed Ghostscript call to count pages in a
  PDF file to use "runpdfbegin" and not the undocumented
  Ghostscript internal "pdfdict", so that it works with
  Ghostscript 9.27 and later

CHANGES IN V1.22.4
- cups-browsed: Fix broken trailing space removal on
  "NickName"
- pdftops: Emit PostScript Level 2 instead of Level 3 for
  Brother PostScript printers as at least some of them
  report to support level 3 but ontly work with Level 2
- bannertopdf: When multiplying the page for N-up or Duplex
  printing one page too much was generated.

CHANGES IN V1.22.3
- libcupsfilters: Added error checks for processing GIF, to
  avoid crashes or hangs on broken GIF files.
- cups-browsed: Added hint to the man page and configuration
  file that with "DebugLogging stderr" the logging output goes
  to journal or syslog if cups-browsed is running as system
  service.

CHANGES IN V1.22.2
- cups-browsed: Let distribution of jobs sent to queues with
  "implicitclass" backend (usually clusters) be done by a
  "job-state" CUPS notification and not by
  "printer-state-changed" any more. The "job-state"
  notification already contains the job ID. Before we had to
  poll the job ID from CUPS via IPP which was sometimes
  unreliable.
- imagetopdf, imagetoraster, pdftopdf, libcupsfilters: Added
  new page scaling options: "fill" scales the input page
  (typically a photo) so that the output page (typically with
  different aspect ratio) gets completely filled, aloowing for
  some content of the input page getting lost. "crop-to-fit"
  allows for easy printing of documents on slightly different
  output page sizes (A4 <-> Letter) maintaining the size and
  centering and cropping into the destination page.
- cups-browsed: Do not do IPP request for printer-is-shared
  option for remote cups queues with CUPS 2.2.x and newer.
- cups-browsed: Fix crash bug when reading "Cluster"
  directive from configuration file.
- driverless: Updated man page as now also Mopria and
  Wi-Fi Direct printers are supported. Mentioned also
  ippusbxd.

CHANGES IN V1.22.1
- braille: Use sort command with LC_ALL=C for reproducibility
  of the genrated files, needed for distribution packaging.
- cups-browsed, driverless: When polling the printer's
  capabilities via get-printer-attributes IPP request for
  driverless printing, use the attributes "all" and
  "media-col-database". Without "all" some printers do not
  report "urf-supported" and without "media-col-database" not
  all paper size and marging info gets reported.
- braille: Document how to rework output before
  embossing.

CHANGES IN V1.22.0
- pdftopdf: Use QPDF for flattening interactive PDF forms
- pdftopdf: Fixed bug of closing temporary file prematurely
  when external PDF form flattening utilities fail
- pdftoopvp: More fixes for building with Poppler 0.72
- pdftoraster, pdftoijs, pdftoopvp: Removed support for
  Poppler 0.18
- cups-browsed: Fixed crash in applying the BrowseFilter
  cups-browsed.conf directives

Log message:
cups-filters: updated to 1.21.6

CHANGES IN V1.21.6
- cups-browsed: To find out whether a DNS-SD-discovered
  printer is from the local machine, use not only the flags in
  the Avahi lookup result but also check the host name.
- cups-browsed: When a local CUPS queue pointing to a remote
  CUPS printer was removed and re-created to make it a
  permanent queue, on_printer_deleted() was triggered by
  cupsd's notification to re-create a lost queue. Now
  on_printer_deleted() checks whether the queue is really gone
  and only re-creates then.
- cups-browsed: When updating the CUPS queues, also removed
  and unregistered queues and not only created queues got
  checked for HTTP timeouts, which caused crashes on shutdown.
- pdftops: Use the PS interpreter of Poppler for all Apple
  LaserWriter 16/600, 4/600, 12/640, 12/600, 12/660 as they
  all seem to not work with Ghostscript's PS output.
- cups-browsed: On shutdown queues got removed even if they
  still had jobs
