Changes in CUPS v1.1b2:

  • Documentation updates.
  • The lp command didn't always load the user-defined destinations, preventing it from seeing the default printer.
  • Many configure script and makefile fixes.
  • The Microsoft code page files were missing from the distribution.
  • Added a workaround for the HP IPP client (which is sending an invalid printer-uri in requests)
  • Fixed the encoding of text-with-language and name-with-language to match the IPP spec.
  • Added support for unknown value tags in the IPP routines (previously they would be ignored)
  • Integrated GNU GhostScript 5.50 into the pstoraster filter.
  • Client hostname resolution was broken on little-endian machines.
  • Now look at client.conf file for client's default server and printer.
  • The cupsServer() function did not close the client.conf file if it contained a ServerName directive.
  • Added BrowseAllow, BrowseDeny, BrowseOrder, BrowsePoll, and BrowseRelay directives.
  • BrowseInterval 0 disables advertising of local printers, but still receives information on remote printers.
  • New browse polling daemon (for polling servers on different networks)
  • New PPD cache file for faster startup times with large numbers of PPD files.
  • The Host: field was incorrectly required for HTTP/1.0 clients.
  • New set-job-attributes operation now supported.
  • The mime_load_types() and mime_load_convs() functions did not close their input files.
