  • Timed out job submission now yields an error (Issue #5570)
  • Restored minimal support for the Emulators keyword in PPD files to allow
    old Samsung printer drivers to continue to work (Issue #5562)
  • The scheduler did not encode octetString values like "job-password" correctly
    for the print filters (Issue #5558)

    correctly (Issue #5557)

  • Fixed a compile error on Linux (Issue #5483)
  • The lpadmin command, web interface, and scheduler all queried an IPP
    Everywhere printer differently, resulting in different PPDs for the same
    printer (Issue #5484)
  • The web interface no longer provides access to the log files (Issue #5513)
  • Non-Kerberized printing to Windows via IPP was broken (Issue #5515)
