Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.2.12nb1, Package name: gutenprint-lib-5.2.12nb1, Maintainer: gdt

Gutenprint is a package of high quality printer drivers for Linux,
BSD, Solaris, IRIX, and other UNIX-alike operating systems. In many
cases, these drivers rival or exceed the OEM drivers in quality and
functionality. Our goal is to produce the highest possible output
quality from all supported printers. To that end, we have done
extensive work on screening algorithms, color generation, and printer
feature utilization. We are continuing our work in all of these areas
to produce ever higher quality results, particularly on the
ubiquitous, inexpensive inkjet printers that are nonetheless capable
of nearly photographic output quality. Earlier versions of Gutenprint
were called gimp-print.

This package contains the base library, the Epson utility escputil,
cups support, and a gimp plugin.

Log message:
Update to 5.2.11.  Upstream changes:

As of 5.2.11, Gutenprint no longer supports Macintosh OS X
10.5.

Upstream changes are voluminous and have many details and have
therefore been aggressively summarized.  See NEWS in the sources.

* Changes from 5.2.10

  1) Added support for many following dye sublimation printers.

  2) Enhanced support (and bugfixes) for many dye sublimation
     printers.

  3) Added support for the Datamax-O'Neil PCL printers, the Performance
     series (p1115, p1115s, p1120n, p1125, p1725, h8308) and the
     Datamax-O'Neil Workstation printer.

     Also added common Imperial and Metric label sizes to the Paper
     Selection menu.

  4) Added support for the following Epson inkjet printers:

     EPSON L120
     EPSON L210
     EPSON L1800 (preliminary)

  5) Add support for the following laser printer:

     Kyocera FS-1135MFP

  6) Canon inkjet driver enhancements:

     Added support for many models and multiple enhancements.

  7) Canon inkjet driver bugfixes:

     6.1 Ink compression fixed

     A problem with a new ink level compression added in 5.2.7 had
     affected multiple printer models. The bug has been fixed in the
     present release, thus all modes previously affected should work
     normally.
