Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.28.15nb2, Package name: cups-filters-1.28.15nb2, 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that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is no longer
maintained by Apple Inc. In addition it contains additional filters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:
print/cups-filters: remove USE_BUILTIN.heimdal=no setting.

Apparently this causes mysterious buildlink problems in bulk builds,
but was required to make cups-filters build succeed in my setup
which is/was a "live" pkgsrc installation.  This therefore needs more
debugging and testing, so for now just remove this.

Log message:
cups-filters: update to 1.28.15


- pdftops: In pdftops identify old LaserJets more precisely
  for working around PostScript interpreter bugs, older
  printers need Poppler, newer models need Ghostscript


- pdftopdf: Correct the output when suppressing auto-rotation
  (option "nopdfAutoRotate"). Depending on the situation pages
  got cropped in the wrong orientation or de-centered.
- pdftopdf: Correct the output when the
  "orientation-requested" or the "landscape" option is
  supplied. Output could be de-centered,
  portrait-oriented pages be wrongly cropped and division of
  the output page into cells for N-up done in the wrong
- rastertopdf: In PCLm output mode the filter failed to
  generate PCLm if the printer has no
  "pclm-source-resolution-default" IPP attribute.


- pdftopdf: Fix N-up printing when paper is taken
  long-edge-first by the printer.
- pdftopdf: Fix cropping ("print-scaling=none" and
  "print-scaling=fill") when paper is taken long-edge-first by
  the printer.
- pdftops: Use Poppler for all Apple LaserWriter models.


- imagetoraster, imagetopdf: Fixed comparison of the image
  size with the page size for print-scaling=auto. The image
  size in pixels was compared with the page size in PostScript
  points (1/72 inch).
- imagetoraster, imagetopdf: Fixed the "print-scaling=none"
  (crop-to-fit) mode, also use crop-to-fit always when
  requested, do not fall back to fit-to-page when the image
  size differs significantly from the page size.
- libcupsfilters: Changed the default PPI resolution for
  images as input files from 128 to 200.
- implicitclass: Do not check availability of "gs" and
  "pdftops" executables, instead, check by the presence of
  "gstoraster" and "pdftoraster" filters whether we have
  configured cups-filters for Ghostscript and/or Poppler use.
- libcupsfilters: In the PPD generator for the driverless
  utility and cups-browsed add "*cupsFilter2: ..." lines for
  all supported driverless data formats (PDF, Apple/PWG
  Raster, PCLm), and add lines for legacy data formats (PCL,
  PostScript) only if no driverless formats available.
- libcupsfilters: Always use encryption for ipps. RFC7472
  requires that 'ipps' must be used over HTTPS, but the
  driverless utility does not enforce encryption.
- serial: Add a 10-msec sleep and at the end add a tcdrain().
  For some unknown reason, every printing file need sleep a
  little time to make sure the serial printer receive data is
- libcupsfilters: Fix resolver functions for DNS-SD-based
  URIs, to make resolve_uri() also work when DEVICE_URI env
  variable is set and to make ippfind_based_uri_converter()
  not re-direct stdin.
- pdftopdf: Set default for print-scaling to avoid "should
  never happem" log messages and undefined behavior.
- pdftopdf: Fix orientation-requested = 0. Consider
  this as "automatic selection and not as error.
- pdftopdf: Fixed all combinations of print-scaling and
  number-up for printers with asymmetric margins (top !=
  bottom or left != right) and for input files containing
  pages with different sizes and/or orientations. Fixes
  backported from 2.x branch.
- pdftopdf: Add 2% tolerance for input size larger than output
  page when "print-scaling=auto" or "print-scaling=auto-fit"
  is used and too large input pages should be scaled, fitting
  documents not. This prevents a random-looking behavior if
  input and output page size seem to be equal, but in reality
  there are slight differences between size dimensions.


- libcupsfilters: Let PPD generator take default ColorModel
  from printer.
- Braille: In vectortopdf check inkscape version to call
  inkscape with the correct command line.
- Build system: Make missing DejaVuSans.ttf non-fatal in
  ./configure as the font is only needed for test programs,
  not for actual use of cups-filters.
- libcupsfilters: In imagetoraster() fixed crash with SGray.
- cups-browsed: Naming of local queues is matched to CUPS'
  current naming of temporary queues (no leading or trailing
  underscores), to avoid duplicates in print dialogs which
  support CUPS' temporary queues.
- libcupsfilters: Make cupsRasterParseIPPOptions() work correctly
  with PPDs (Issue #436).
- libcupsfilters: Let colord_get_profile_for_device_id() not
  return empty file name, to avoid error messages in CUPS
- foomatic-rip: Debug message was wrongly sent to stdout and
  not to log
