Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.2.13nb6, Package name: gutenprint-lib-5.2.13nb6, 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:
Bump PKGREVISION on packages depending on CUPS

This should be the last part of the renaming operation for print/cups to
print/cups-base.

Rationale: packages depending on CUPS but not relying on a functional
printing setup only need to depend on print/cups-base (equivalent to the
former print/cups). The new print/cups now depends on print/cups-base
and on print/cups-filters, thus directly providing a functional printing
setup. This bump reflects this change of dependency.

Log message:
Update dependencies on print/cups to print/cups-base

This is with the notable exception of meta-pkgs/desktop-gnome, which I
believe implies a fully functional cups.

This is still missing revision bumps - I'll be right there (first time I
am doing this on so many packages at a time).

Update to 5.2.13

* Changes from 5.2.12

  1) Critical bugfix

     * Correct mis-defined paper type that collided with standard
       A4 paper.  This resulted in some Canon and PCL printers
       mishandling A4 paper.

  2) Added support for the following Epson inkjet printers:

     EPSON Artisan 1430
     EPSON L210

  3) Improvements to the dye-sublimation driver:

     * Code optimizations in the dye-sublimation driver, resulting
       in a significant (2x-2.7x) boost in performance.

     * Added support for the following thermal printer:

      Mitsubishi P93DW

     * Enhanced support (and bugfixes) for several
       dye-sublimation and thermal printers.

  4) Improvements to the Gimp plugin

     * Compilation fixes when CUPS is not enabled

     * Fix non-interactive plugin mode

  5) Changes to the Canon driver:

     * Added support for many printer models.

     * Removed iP100 (unsupported)

     * Added duplex support to MP530

     * Improved duplex support for sevearl models.

     * Corrected black-only and color-only cartridge support for MP230
       series

     * Improved printer firmware papersize detection when using
       automatic paper source selection (Autofeed), by changing paper
       width from calculated to a constant value for paper sizes known
       to the driver.

     * Added several resolution modes for Pro9500

  6) Added the Datamax-O'Neil H class series of printers.

  7) Added the two Honeywell printers, RP2 (SAV2) and RP4 (SAV4).
