Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.28.8nb1, Package name: cups-filters-1.28.8nb1, 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that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is no longer
maintained by Apple Inc. In addition it contains additional filters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.

Update cups-filters to 1.28.8

NEWS - OpenPrinting CUPS Filters v1.28.8 - 2021-03-25
-----------------------------------------------------

CHANGES IN V1.28.8

- libcupsfilters: Made check whether the driverless PPD to
  generate should be a fax out PPD more reliable (Issue #343).
- foomatic-rip: Options in the 5th command line argument of
  the CUPS filter command line are separated only by white
  space and not by comma, also make sure that an option "none"
  is not considered a custom page size (Issue #348).
- implicitclass: Raise timeout for cups-browsed's answer from
  20s to 60s (Pull request #346).
- libcupsfilters: In the PPD generator really give priority to
  Apple Raster against PDF (Issue #331).

Update cups-filters to 1.28.7

NEWS - OpenPrinting CUPS Filters v1.28.7 - 2021-01-07
-----------------------------------------------------

CHANGES IN V1.28.7

- driverless: Removed the support quality check from Pull
  request #235 as it takes significant time for each printer
  being listed, making cups-driverd (`lpinfo -m`) timing out
  when there are many printers (OpenPrinting CUPS issue #65).
- libcupsfilters: In the PPD generator give priority to Apple
  Raster against PDF (Issue #331).
- libcupsfilters: Added NULL check when removing ".Borderless"
  suffixes from page size names (Issue #314, Pull request
  #328).
- libcupsfilters: In the cupsRasterParseIPPOptions() map the
  color spaces the same way as in the PPD generator (Issue
  #326, Pull request #327).
- libcupsfilters: Fixed addition of grayscale mode in
  generated PPD files, to avoid duplicate entries
  (OpenPrinting CUPS issue #59).

Update cups-filters to 1.28.6

NEWS - OpenPrinting CUPS Filters v1.28.6 - 2020-12-02
-----------------------------------------------------

CHANGES IN V1.28.6

- libcupsfilters: In generated PPDs add a grayscale mode if
  there are only color printing modes (from OpenPrinting
  CUPS).
- libcupsfilters: In generated PPDs add an "OutputBin" option
  also if it has only one choice (OpenPrinting CUPS pull
  request #18).
- libcupsfilters: Generated PPDs could have an "Unknown"
  default InputSlot (OpenPrinting CUPS issue #44).
- cups-browsed: Removed unneeded IPP attribute additions
  preventing the created local queues from preserving a
  location or description the user assigns to them (Issue
  #323).
- cups-browsed: Removed all calls of the resolve_uri() function
  of libcupsfilters, as these are not actually needed and in case
  the supplied DNS-SD-based URI is not resolvable, the function
  gets stuck for ~5 seconds.
- cups-browsed: Fixed several memory leaks, mainly from the
  code to merge printer IPP attributes for clusters (Pull
  request #322).
- cups-browsed: Silenced compiler warning.
- foomatic-rip: Fix infinite loop and input from file on raw
  printing (Pull request #318).
- foomatic-rip: Remove temporary file created during pdf-to-ps
  conversion (Pull request #313).
