Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.28.5, Package name: cups-filters-1.28.5, 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that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is no longer
maintained by Apple Inc. In addition it contains additional filters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.

Update cups-filters to 1.28.5


       - cups-browsed: UUID from IPP response was used after its
         pointer was freed by ippDelete() (Pull request #311).


       - driverless: Avoid duplicate PPD list entries from the same
          device via UUID
       - driverless: Reduce ippfind calls by "driverless" and
         "driverless-fax"called by CUPS. Let "driverless \ 
list" list
         both print and fax PPDs and "driverless-fax list" do
       - driverless: Avoid duplicate listings in printer discovery,
         by "driverless-fax" not listing any URI as "driverless"
         lists them all already.
       - driverless: Vastly improve performance by doing only one
         ippfind call instead of two (IPP, IPPS) as ippfind accepts
         more than one reg type on the command line.
       - Sample PPDs: Corrected manufacturer name in


       - libcupsfilters, cups-browsed: Fixed inconsistency between
         resolvers for DNS-SD-based URIs, resolve_uri() and
         ippfind_based_uri_converter(). Now both return a freeable
       - libcupsfilters: Fix uninitialized buffer and parsing ippfind
         output in ippfind_based_uri_converter() function (Issue
         #308, Pull request #309).

cups-filters: Update to 1.27.5

 - cups-browsed: Do not remove the created local queues on
   shutdown, to avoid their re-creation on restart, so that
   desktops get no cluttered with notifications of new queues
   being created. One can return to the old behavior via
   "KeepGeneratedQueuesOnShutdown No" in cups-browsed.conf
   (Ubuntu bug #1869981, #1878241).
 - cups-browsed: Do not accept DNS-SD broadcasts of IPPS type
   of "remote" CUPS queues of another CUPS instance on the
   local machine. This way we get a local queue pointing to
   such a printer only in unencrypted version (IPP). For some
   reason printing from one CUPS server to another on the same
   machine works only unencrypted.
 - foomatic-rip: Map two-sided-short-edge to DuplexTumble (Pull
   request #236)
 - Build system: In configure.ac use AS_IF instead of
   AC_CHECK_FILE for font check (Issue #239, Pull request #240)
 - cups-browsed: Cleaned up code for determining to which CUPS
   server (host/port/domain socket) to connect, so that
   connection via DomainSocket cups-browsed.conf directive,
   CUPS_SERVER and IPP_PORT environment variables and all
   defaults and methods of libcups, including CUPS' client.conf
 - gstoraster, rastertopdf: Do not pass NULL to fprintf() (Pull
   request #230).
 - libcupsfilters: Silence compiler warning (Pull request #229).

cups-filters: Update to 1.27.4

pkgsrc changes:
 - Remove patches/patch-configure: applied uptsream
 - Convert the CHECK_PORTABILITY_SKIP to a REPLACE_BASH: it is more consistent
   with other REPLACE_BASHes (there are several files that are not installed
   then) and complaining about `==' test(1) operator in a bash script is
   not correct.

- libcupsfilters, cups-browsed: Fix memory issues in
  ppdgenerator and cups-browsed (Pull request #226).
- pdftops: Mention cups-filters README, CUPS README in debug
  log (Pull request #225).
- pdftopdf, gstoraster, foomatic-rip: Use "-dSAFER"
  Ghostscript option, instead of the deprecated
  "-dPARANOIDSAFER" (Pull request #224).
- Build System: Replace '==' in configure.ac test with '=', as
  the former is a bashism (Pull request #222).

- cups-browsed: Allow sharing local queues pointing to remote
  CUPS queues and re-sharing printers discovered via
  BrowsePoll by default, using
  AllowResharingRemoteCUPSPrinters and
  NewBrowsePollQueuesShared directives in cups-browsed.conf
  (Issue #101, Pull request #218).
- driverless: Correctly unlink temporary file when generating
  PPD file (Pull request #220).
- cups-browsed: Fixed memory leaks (Pull request #219).
- foomatic-rip: PDF page count side-loads the PDF file to
  count the pages in, so it cannot be run in -dSAFER mode. Run
  even in -dNOSAFER mode to override the -dSAFER default of
  newer Ghostscript versions. This should not cause a security
  problem as we do not take an input file which could do
  arbitrary side-loads but we run hard-coded PostScript
  commands instead (Issue #216).
- libfontembed: Add checks to the test programs to not
  segfault if the test font file is not found (Pull request
- Build System: Let ./configure fail if the supplied test font
  file path (or the default) does not exist (Pull request
  #214), also use the "find" command to find the test font
  file DejaVuSans.ttf under /usr/share/fonts, as every
  distribution has it somewhere else.

- foomatic-rip: In some PostScript input files it was possible
  that option settings did not get inserted or lines inserted
  on the wron place (Issue #208, Pull request #210).
- foomatic-rip: For the PDF page count call Ghostscript in
  sandbox mode and fix pointer arithmetics (Pull request
- foomatic-rip: Zero-page-job handling changes made the last
  page of PostScript files not printed, also turning one-page
  jobs into zero-page jobs (Issue #200, Issue #206, Issue
  #208, Pull request #209, Pull request #210, Pull request
- cups-browsed: check_printer_with_option() function:
  Initialize the value, add further checks, freeing memory and
  stop allocating magic numbers (Pull request #204).
- cups-browsed: Additional checks against crashes in the
  is_local_hostname() function (Ubuntu bug #1863716)

- libcupsfilters: Let the PPD generator not put any dashes
  into the PPD option and choice names when translating them
  from IPP attribute names, to avoid that on the
  back-translation by CUPS no double-dashes are
  generated. This broke paper tray selections with tray names
  like "tray-1", "tray-2", ... (Issue #192, Issue #201, Debian
  bug #949315).
- foomatic-rip: Fixed segfault when PRINTER environment
  variable is not supplied.
- pdftopdf, pdftops, gstoraster, gstopdf, gstopxl,
  rastertoescpx, rastertopclx, foomatic-rip: Handle zero-page
  jobs (Issue #117, Pull request #196, Pull request #197, Pull
  request #198, Pull request #200).
- texttopdf: Added support for CJK (double-width) fonts (Issue
  #135, Pull request #199).
- cups-browsed: Switched default for "CreateIPPPrinterQueues"
  from "local-only" to "All". The configure script options
  "--enable-auto-setup-local-only" and
  "--enable-auto-setup-driverless-only" can be used to change
  this default (Debian bug #921252).
- rastertoescpx: Fixed wrong freeing of a buffer.
- pdftops: Added options "crop-to-fit" and "fill" to the
  pdftopdf options which the pstops called by pdftops should
  not apply a second time.
- pdftops: Added missing "-sstdout=%stderr" to Ghostscript
  command line, to assure that all messages are redirected to
  stderr and do not mix up with the output data.

- cups-browsed: Eliminate the use of the local CUPS daemon's
  (the CUPS we are attached to) port number completely, so
  that for attaching to an arbitrary local CUPS daemon
  listening on an arbitrary port (or even not listening on
  localhost at all) it is enough to tell cups-browsed the
  domain socket the CUPS daemon is listening on.
- cups-browsed, libcupsfilters: Identify DNS-SD-reported
  printers as of the local CUPS daemon via UUID and not via
  the port on which the local CUPS is listening, as we do not
  always have this port available.
- cups-browsed: Leave the port for legacy CUPS browsing and
  broadcasting on 631, do not use a possible alternative port
  of the CUPS we are attached to. The legacy CUPS servers we
  communicate with are always remote ones.
- libcupsfilters: in the PPD generator prioritize
  print-color-mode-supported against
  pwg-raster-document-type-supported (Issue #186, Pull request
- rastertopdf, rastertops, texttopdf, pdftoraster,
  mupdftoraster: Handle zero-page jobs, corrections on
  zero-page job handling (Issue #117)
- cups-browsed: When restarting after a crash make sure that
  local queue names have same upper/lower case as before.
- cups-browsed: Small code improvements to reduce crash

- cups-browsed: Added crash guards to avoid crashes in case
  the dummy printer entry for a deleted master entry is used.
- cups-browsed: Set the port of the local CUPS daemon to be
  used according to the IPP_PORT environment variable.
- cups-browsed: Eliminated the use of the cupsGetPPD2()
  function of libcups completely, also the remaining calls
  in the record_printer_options() and update_cups_queues()
  functions, the former causing incomplete recording of
  option settings and the latter use of CUPS-generated
  PPDs not working when CUPS is running on a non-standard
- cups-browsed: Eliminated the use of the cupsGetPPD2()
  function of libcups in queue_overwritten(). The function
  actually loads the queue's PPD file if the queue is on a
  local CUPS on port 631. Due to a bug the function fails if
  an alternative port is used. This lets queue_overwritten()
  always assume that the PPD got removed and therefore the
  queue got overwritten. So queues got released from
  cups-browsed if it was printed on them or if they were
  supposed to be removed on shutdown.
- foomatic-rip: Fixed compilation with -fno-common. Starting
  from the upcoming GCC 10, the default of the -fcommon option
  will change to -fno-common. This causes compilation errors
  in foomatic-rip due to missing "external" declarations.
