cups-filters-1.25.0-lp152.1.3 RPM for aarch64

From OpenSuSE Ports Leap 15.2 for aarch64

Name: cups-filters Distribution: openSUSE Leap 15.2
Version: 1.25.0 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: lp152.1.3 Build date: Thu Feb 6 01:19:21 2020
Group: Hardware/Printing Build host: obs-arm-9
Size: 3794790 Source RPM: cups-filters-1.25.0-lp152.1.3.src.rpm
Summary: OpenPrinting CUPS filters, backends, and cups-browsed
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but is no longer maintained by Apple Inc.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 broadcasts of remote CUPS printers
and makes these printers available locally.
Since Ghostscript version 9.10 the CUPS filters
gstoraster and gstopxl are removed from Ghostscript.
Those filters are now provided by cups-filters.
Since cups-filters version 1.0.42 foomatic-rip
is also provided by cups-filters.
Since CUPS >= 1.6 the CUPS Browsing functionality
is dropped in CUPS. The OpenPrinting cups-browsed
is a daemon running in parallel to the CUPS daemon
to provide again basic CUPS Browsing functionality.
This way basic CUPS Browsing works on clients
with CUPS >= 1.6 when there are remote CUPS servers
of CUPS version 1.5 and older in the network.
Load-balancing (what CUPS <= 1.5 did via implicit classes)
is not supported with cups-browsed.

* Tue Sep 03 2019 Ismail Dönmez <>
  - Add add-cstring-include.patch to include cstring for memcpy
    and strcmp
* Wed Jun 12 2019 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - BuildRequire pkgconfig(systemd) instead of systemd: allow OBS to
    shortcut the build queues by allowing usage of systemd-mini
* Fri Jun 07 2019 Bjørn Lie <>
  - Update to version 1.25.0:
    * pdftoijs, pdftoopvp: Removed these deprecated filters
      completely as there is no demand for them any more. They also
      used unstable, undocumented APIs of Poppler.
    * pdftoraster: Changed from using unstable, undocumented APIs of
      Poppler to stable, documented ones, to improve maintainability
      of this filter, and with it of the cups-filters package.
    * libcupsfilters: Added support for color spaces CMY and RGBW
      when using filters without PPD file (mainly for development and
      debugging, option "print-color-mode" with values "cmy-XX" and
      "rgbw-XX" with XX being the number of bits per color).
  - Changes from version 1.24.0:
    * cups-browsed: Integration of Deepak Patankar's Google Summer of
      Code 2018 project with the main goal of clustering different
      printers and automatically selecting the destination printers
      by job content and option/attribute settings.
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: Support for mixed clusters of
      remote CUPS queues and IPP network printers. For this PPD files
      of remote CUPS queues are generated by cups-browsed based on
      IPP queries, as for native IPP printers, the number of jobs for
      load balancing is polled in a way that it works also with
      native IPP printers, the implicitclass backend sends jobs
      directly to the printer instead of re-queueing them via CUPS.
    * cups-browsed: Merge IPP attributes of several printers to
      combined attributes for the cluster to generate the cluster's
      PPD file, including PPD constraints for option combinations not
      fulfillable by any of the member printers, and finding
      reasonable, non-conflicting default settings.
    * cups-browsed: Selection algorithm for the destination printer
      for a job sent to the cluster. Based on the job settings
      requested such as page size, media type, print quality, the
      best most suitable printer in the cluster for the job will be
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: Filter jobs to clusters already
      locally. Due to the fact that a cluster's member printers are
      not exclusively non-raw CUPS queues with the complete filtering
      framework on the remote server, but also native IPP printers,
      we need to support generic driverless printers as destination.
      So we cannot pass on the input data unfiltered but need to
      filter locally. We let the cluster's PPD file emulate a PDF
      printer, letting the local CUPS queue of the cluster run
      pdftopdf and any pre-filters to turn the input into PDF and we
      let the implicitclass backend turn PDF into a format understood
      by the destination printer, supporting the 4 formats of
      driverless IPP printing: PDF, PWG Raster, Apple Raster, PCLm.
  - Drop libpoppler-cpp0, libpoppler-devel and libpoppler-glib-devel
  - Add pkgconfig(poppler-cpp) BuildRequires following upstream
* Fri May 31 2019 Bjørn Lie <>
  - Update to version 1.23.0:
    * This release adds support for the "print-scaling" IPP attribute
      and has the code for the support of MuPDF as PDF renderer
      vastly simplified.
    * pdftops, mupdftoraster: Let pdftops call mutool directly and so
      that it directly outputs PostScript, eliminating the need to
      call the mupdftoraster and rastertops filters.
    * mupdftoraster: Reduced the use of temporary files from 3 to
      just one.
    * imagetopdf, imagetoraster, pdftopdf: Add support for
      print-scaling option.
  - Changes from version 1.22.6:
    * Bug fix release, to address a further issue of cups-browsed
      removing user-created print queues, to make
      grayscale/monochrome PostScript jobs of colored input file
      actually output grayscale/monochrome files, to fix several bugs
      when using MuPDF as PDF renderer, and to silence compiler
* Mon Apr 08 2019
  - Version upgrade to 1.22.5
    * foomatic-rip: Changed Ghostscript call to count pages in a
      PDF file to use "runpdfbegin" and not the undocumented
      Ghostscript internal "pdfdict", so that it works with
      Ghostscript 9.27 and later (Debian bug #926576,
      Arch Linux bug #62251, openSUSE boo#1131771, mailing list thread
  - Version upgrade to 1.22.4
    * cups-browsed: Fix broken trailing space removal on
      "NickName" (Pull request #103).
    * pdftops: Emit PostScript Level 2 instead of Level 3 for
      Brother PostScript printers as at least some of them
      report to support level 3 but ontly work with Level 2
      (Ubuntu bug #1306849, comment #42).
    * bannertopdf: When multiplying the page for N-up or Duplex
      printing one page too much was generated (Issue #102).
  - Version upgrade to 1.22.3
    * libcupsfilters: Added error checks for processing GIF, to
      avoid crashes or hangs on broken GIF files (Issues #81, #82,
      Pull request #100).
    * cups-browsed: Added hint to the man page and configuration
      file that with "DebugLogging stderr" the logging output goes
      to journal or syslog if cups-browsed is running as system
      service (Issue #28).
  - Version upgrade to 1.22.2
    * cups-browsed: Let distribution of jobs sent to queues with
      "implicitclass" backend (usually clusters) be done by a
      "job-state" CUPS notification and not by
      "printer-state-changed" any more. The "job-state"
      notification already contains the job ID. Before we had to
      poll the job ID from CUPS via IPP which was sometimes
      unreliable (Issue #97).
    * imagetopdf, imagetoraster, pdftopdf, libcupsfilters: Added
      new page scaling options: "fill" scales the input page
      (typically a photo) so that the output page (typically with
      different aspect ratio) gets completely filled, aloowing for
      some content of the input page getting lost. "crop-to-fit"
      allows for easy printing of documents on slightly different
      output page sizes (A4 <-> Letter) maintaining the size and
      centering and cropping into the destination page. Thanks to
      Dheeraj Yadav (dhirajyadav135 at gmail dot com) for the
      patch (Pull request #92).
    * cups-browsed: Do not do IPP request for printer-is-shared
      option for remote cups queues with CUPS 2.2.x and newer
      (Pull request #91).
    * cups-browsed: Fix crash bug when reading "Cluster"
      directive from configuration file (Issue #94).
    * driverless: Updated man page as now also Mopria and
      Wi-Fi Direct printers are supported. Mentioned also
* Wed Feb 20 2019
  - Update to version 1.22.1:
    * braille: Use sort command with LC_ALL=C for reproducibility
      of the genrated files, needed for distribution packaging.
    * cups-browsed, driverless: When polling the printer's
      capabilities via get-printer-attributes IPP request for
      driverless printing, use the attributes "all" and
      "media-col-database". Without "all" some printers do not report
      "urf-supported" and without "media-col-database" not all paper
      size and marging info gets reported.
    * braille: Document how to rework output before embossing.
* Mon Jan 28 2019
  - Update to version 1.22.0:
    * From this release on the pdftopdf filter flattens interactive
      PDF forms and annotations internally, using QPDF, instead of
      calling external utilities. This especially eliminates slowing
      factors as additional piping of the data and unneeded use of
      PDF interpreters. Using external utilities for flattening is
      still possible in case of problems. In addition, a crash bug in
      cups-browsed got fixed and compatibility of the filters with
      Poppler 0.72 assured.
  - Drop upstream fixed patches:
    * 0001-Raise-minimum-poppler-version-from-0.18-to-0.19.patch

    Add 0004-Support-GooString-c_str-introduced-by-poppler-0.72.patch
* Tue Dec 18 2018
  - Update to version 1.21.6:
    * Bug fix release, mainly for cups-browsed to avoid crashes and
      infinite printer removal/re-creation loops and spurious local
      queues for local CUPS printers. Also expanded PostScript
      interpreter bug workaround to more Apple LaserWriter models.
    * cups-browsed: To find out whether a DNS-SD-discovered printer
      is from the local machine, use not only the flags in the Avahi
      lookup result but also check the host name.
    * cups-browsed: When a local CUPS queue pointing to a remote CUPS
      printer was removed and re-created to make it a permanent
      queue, on_printer_deleted() was triggered by cupsd's
      notification to re-create a lost queue. Now
      on_printer_deleted() checks whether the queue is really gone
      and only re-creates then.
    * cups-browsed: When updating the CUPS queues, also removed and
      unregistered queues and not only created queues got checked for
      HTTP timeouts, which caused crashes on shutdown.
    * pdftops: Use the PS interpreter of Poppler for all Apple
      LaserWriter 16/600, 4/600, 12/640, 12/600, 12/660 as they all
      seem to not work with Ghostscript's PS output.
    * cups-browsed: On shutdown queues got removed even if they still
      had jobs.
  - Changes from version 1.21.5:
    * Bug fix release, to build with Poppler 0.71 and with
      cups-browsed converting temporary CUPS queues reliably to
      permanent queues.
    * cups-browsed: We cannot reliably determine whether a CUPS queue
      is temporary, so we apply the procedure to make a temporary
      queue permanent to any unshared queue.
    * pdftoraster, pdftopdf, pdftoijs, pdftoopvp: Do not use the
      Poppler-specific "GBool", "gFalse", "gTrue" any more, as
      Poppler has switched to standard "bool", "false", "true" in
      version 0.71.0.
* Wed Nov 28 2018
  - Update to version 1.21.4:
    * cups-browsed: cups-browsed: Limit the number of retries for
      creating a print queue when it comes to HTTP timeouts. Number
      of retries given by HttpMaxRetries directive in
    * cups-browsed: Read out current time right before setting the
    * libcupsfilters: In the PPD generator for driverless IPP
      printing let "*cupsManualCopies: true" lines get added to
      the PPD if printing is done in a raster format as then
      pdftopdf needs to generate the copies.
    * pdftoraster, pdftoopvp, pdftoijs: Fix build with
      Poppler >= 0.70
    * pdftopdf: Fixed printing multiple copies on driverless IPP
      printers. When printing collated copies the multiple copies
      got applied twice, resulting in n*n instead of n copies.
    * pdftoraster, pdftoopvp, pdftoijs: Poppler removed memCheck
      and gMemReport functions, remove appropriate calls.
  - Changes from version 1.21.3:
    * foomatic-rip: Reset stdin after replacing the underlying file
  - Changes from version 1.21.2:
    * cups-browsed: Fixed freeing of literal string caused by
      Coverity Scan issue fix.
* Thu Aug 30 2018 Tomáš Chvátal <>
  - Do not diferentiate for service location, it is in sbindir
    on all systems we support now
  - Use license for license install
  - Version update to 1.21.1:
    - foomatic-rip: Fixed segmentation fault caused by wrong
      Coverity Scan issue fix (Issue #57, Debian bug #907026).
    - Build system: Require QPDF 8.1.0 or later as it is needed by
      bannertopdf (Issue #56).
    - libcupsfilters, cups-browsed, driverless, foomatic-rip,
      parallel: Silenced warnings from newest gcc.
    - libcupsfilters: When generating a PPD for driverless
      printing on a remote IPP printer, make pdftopdf not being
      run by the local queue if the remote queue is a CUPS queue
      to avoid running pdftopdf twice (CUPS Issue #5361).
    - libcupsfilters, cups-browsed, driverless, bannertopdf,
      foomatic-rip, pdftops, pdftoraster, rastertops,
      rastertoescpx, sys5ippprinter, beh: Fixed Coverity Scan
      issues. Thanks to Zdenek Dohnal (zdohnal at redhat dot com)
      for the tests and the patches.
    - bannertopdf: Switched over from using Poppler to using QPDF
      for generating the PDF pages. With Poppler unstable APIs
      were used which were subject to change. Thanks to Sahil
      Arora for this project in the Google Summer of Code 2018
      (Pull request #25).
    - cups-browsed: Manually defined clusters ("Cluster" directive
      in cups-browsed.conf) caused cups-browsed to crash.
* Tue Jul 17 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.20.4
    - gstoraster: Removed unneeded "if"s (Ghostscript bug #692705).
    - cups-browsed: When checking whether there is already a local
      print queue with the same URI as the one of the discovered
      printer, consider also as equal URI if the URIs only differ
      by use of IPP or IPPS and/or use of HTTPS port 443 instead
      of IPP port 631.
    - cups-browsed: Also upgrade from ipp: to ipps: when the ipps:
      URI is on HTTPS port 443 instead of IPP port 631. This is
      common on IPP network printers.
    - pdftopdf: Removed support for hardware-implemented reversing
      of page order in PostScript printers. It was once not
      correctly implemented in cups-filters and second, such
      printers are extremely rare, and on Gutenprint PPDs with
      pseudo OutputOrder option hardware reversing was even
      wrongly assumed (Issue #47).
    - pdftopdf: Accept option "output-order=normal/reverse" for
      reversing page order (Issue #47) and also "page-delivery=
      same-order/reverse-order" (CUPS Issue #5340).
    - libcupsfilters: Let the PPD generator add "*PageStackOrder
      ..."  lines to the choices of the "OutputBin" option, to
      mark which output bins need the pages printed in reverse
      order (Issue #47).
    - libcupsfilters: Let the PPD generator correctly create a
      "*DefaultOutputOrder: ..."  entry, depending on whether the
      paper is put out face-up or face-down in the default output
      bin (Issue #47).
    - libcupsfilters: Fixed human-readable name of the OutputBin
      option in the PPD generator.
    - pdftoopvp: Silence compiler warning (Issue #42).
    - cups-browsed: If the user modifies/overwrites a print queue
      created by cups-browsed, it will now not only be
      automatically released from the control of cups-browsed, but
      we also create a replacement for our generated local queue
      under a new name.
    - cups-browsed: Make URIS for using the implicitclass backend
      correctly working also with queue names containing an '@'
    - braille: Strengthen error checking (Pull request #41).
    - braille: Index: Replace bogus characters with space (Pull
      request #41).
    - braille: Add print and braille page number options (Pull
      request #41).
    - braille: Index: Use standard duplex cups option (Pull
      request #41).
    - cups-browsed: Moved auto-generation of PPD file for IPP
      network printers from create_remote_printer_entry()
      function to update_cups_queues(). This allows re-creating
      accidentally removed or overwritten local queues without
      losing the PPD file.
    - braille: Add option to pick hyphenation rule according to
      current locale and make it the default for second
      translation table. (Pull request #38 and #39).
    - braille: Remove generated defs on "make clean". (Pull request #38).
    - braille: Turn non-breakable spaces to spaces. (Pull request
      [#38] and #39).
    - braille: Fix character encoding when extracting text. When
      extracing text from a zip file or a pdf, the resulting text
      is always utf-8 independently of the original locale, so we
      need to force that. (Pull request #38).
    - braille: Warn when no text translation was selected in case
      the user didn't notice. (Pull request #37).
    - braille: Fix spurious spacing after last Form-Feed (Pull
      request #45).
  - Drop pdftoopvp_Silence-compiler-warning.patch
* Tue Jul 10 2018
  - Add pdftoopvp_Silence-compiler-warning.patch: pdftoopvp: Silence
    compiler warning.
* Wed May 02 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.20.3
    to fix regression from 1.20.2 that ignores printers published
    using legacy CUPS broadcast
* Tue Apr 10 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.20.2
    to provide upstream bugfixes also for SLE15 / Leap15
    and be also already prepared for SLE12 (fate#323676).
    This is a bug fix release fixing the recognition
    of remote CUPS queues by cups-browsed, the behavior
    of cups-browsed when one creates a queue with the
    same name of a cups-browsed-generated queue overwriting
    it, and other bug fixes (for details see the NEWS file).
* Wed Apr 04 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.20.1
    to provide upstream bugfixes also for SLE15 / Leap15
    and be also already prepared for SLE12 (fate#323676).
    This is a bug fix release fixing several issues
    on the Braille support and other bugs, in particular
    (for details see the NEWS file):
    * libcupsfilters: Silenced warning when using CUPS < 2.x
      by eliminating the use of a recently introduced
      CUPS library function, see
    * cups-browsed: Fixed crash when CUPS reports a print queue
      without "device-uri" attribute when cups-browsed polls a
      list of local CUPS queues, see
  - fix_upstream_bug_1421.patch is no longer needed because
    it is now fixed in the upstream sources
    (see the "libcupsfilters ... bug ... 1421" entry above).
* Wed Feb 21 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.20.0:
    * Mainly enhancements and fixes for the PPD generator.
    * For detailed info see the NEWS file.
  - fix_upstream_bug_1421.patch is the upstream fix for
  - Use 'BuildRequires python3-cups' only if suse_version >= 1330
    (cf. "Do not require python-cups but rather python3-cups" below)
    which means after any SLE12 service pack and after any Leap 42.x
    i.e. for Tumbleweed, Leap 15.x, and the upcoming SLE15 and later
    otherwise still use 'BuildRequires python-cups' to make it build
    and usable again not only on some newest systems according to
* Tue Jan 23 2018
  - Version upgrade to 1.19.0:
    * See the detailed stuff in NEWS file
    * New filters and poppler compatibility as always
  - Do not require python-cups but rather python3-cups in order to
    allow build on python2 less system
  - Explicitly enable ijs and opvp filters
* Fri Sep 29 2017
  - Obsolete also debuginfo subpackages of the packages marked as
    Obsoletes in this specfile (bsc#1047897)
* Sat Sep 16 2017
  - Version upgrade to 1.17.6:
    * As the changelog is long for detailed info check the NEWS file.
    * Package new filters.
    * Compatible with poppler 0.58 and newer (Bug #1408).
* Fri Jun 02 2017
  - The filter for Apple Raster input is rastertopdf
    for CUPS 2.2.2+ and urftopdf for older CUPS.
    Because Factory/Tumbleweed uses the newest CUPS for build
    (which is currently CUPS 2.2.3 as of this writing) the filter
    for Apple Raster input is rastertopdf for Factory/Tumbleweed
    so that /usr/lib/cups/filter/urftopdf must be excluded
    from the RPM files list for Factory/Tumbleweed.
* Thu Jun 01 2017
  - The RPM scriptlet hack that created a special cupsfilters.convs
    so that the gstoraster filter can be used with CUPS <= 1.5.4
    does no longer make sense and is therefore removed.
* Tue May 30 2017
  - Since version 1.14.0 there are no longer sub-packages
    (except cups-filters-devel) because nowadays cups-filters
    can no longer be built with CUPS < 1.6 with reasonable effort,
    see the entry below dated "Wed Oct  7 11:16:13 CEST 2015".
    On systems with CUPS >= 1.6 (i.e. since SLE12 GA / Leap 42.1)
    there is no good reason to keep cups-filters split into
    sub-packages and furthermore that split causes continuous
    (nowadays useless) efforts and bugs (like boo#1034877).
  - Version upgrade to 1.14.0:
    Some excerpts (for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: Added new setting "LocalOnly" for the
      CreateIPPPrinterQueues in cups-browsed.conf.
  - Version upgrade to 1.13.5:
    Some excerpts (for details see the NEWS file):
    * foomatic-rip: When called via cupsfilter, foomatic-rip was
      not able to read the PPD file with (Bug #1388).
    * cups-browsed: When creating a local queue for a remote CUPS
      printer, add the line '*APRemoteQueueID: ""' to the PPD file
      so that CUPS sets the CUPS_PRINTER_REMOTE bit for the
      printer type of the local queue (Bug #1386).
  - fallback_read_ppd_file_from_environment.patch is no longer
    needed because it is now provided in the upstream sources
    (see the "Bug #1388" entry above).
  - Version upgrade to 1.13.4:
    Some excerpts (for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: Corrected determination whether an IPP status
      is an error, to avoid "Unable to create/modify CUPS queue
      (Success)" and infinite repetition of a succeeded operation
      (Debian bug #852436).
* Mon Mar 13 2017
  - fallback_read_ppd_file_from_environment.patch
    lets foomatic-rip call read_ppd_file() with
    PPD filename from environment as fallback, see
* Fri Jan 20 2017
  - Version upgrade to 1.13.3:
    * As the changelog is long for detailed info check the NEWS file
    * Disable mutool switch to not build with mupdf package in order
      to not expand the dependencies too much
    * /usr/lib/cups/filter/textonly was renamed to texttotext
    * pstopdf filter dropped by upstream (cf. boo#1036220)
    * Add new driverless binary/driver to work with
      new style IPP printers that do not require any driver
* Thu Mar 03 2016
  - Version upgrade to 1.8.2
    * Allow disabling dependencies on Ghostscript and Foomatic
      (Bug #1342).
    * cups-browsed: Optionally generate also local queues pointing
      to remote raw queues. Usually only queues pointing to remote
      queues with PPD/driver are created (Debian bug #814020,
      Debian bug #756724).
  - Version upgrade to 1.8.1
    * cups-browsed: Do not disable queues which still have jobs (and
      therefore cannot be removed) when avahi-daemon goes away, the
      print server is most probably still available and printing can
      be continued. Especially important on mobile devices where
      avahi-daemon is shut down when the print dialog is closed (and
    the job(s) still printing).
  - Version upgrade to 1.8.0
    * COPYING: Replaced the COPYING file by a file in Debian format,
      derived from Debian's file but updated and corrected.
    * braille: Added info about additional packages needed for
      Braille printing to the README file.
    * braille: Let the Braille filters use lou_translate of
      liblouis if the more sophisticated file2brl of liblouisutdml
      is not installed. This is decided on at run time, so later
      installation of liblouisutdml will let the filters
      automatically switch to file2brl.
    * braille: Allow to build with Braille support also if
      liblouis is not installed at build time.
    * braille: Added checks for the presence of helper tools, to
      get clear messages in the CUPS error_log if something is
    * Fixed copyright headers of files inherited from CUPS or
      derived from CUPS, pointing to COPYING as license info file,
      removing Apple exceptions, removing hints that a missing
      license info file can be found at, and removing
      "$Id" SVN file ID placeholders.
    * Updated COPYING file for missing implicitclass and beh
  - Version upgrade to 1.7.0
    * cups-browsed: Added possibility to trigger the auto shutdown
      by the queues of cups-browsed being without jobs. Before
      auto shutdown was only possible when all queues have gone
      away. This allows auto shutdown on mobile devices where
      avahi-daemon is also used for other things than printing.
  - Version upgrade to 1.6.0
    * cups-browsed: Fixed use of CUPS domain socket, both
      detection during build process and permission check at
    * foomatic-rip: Fixed buffer overflow when reading environment
      variables CUPS_FONTPATH, CUPS_DATADIR, and GS_LIB (Bug
    * beh: Introduced beh, the Backend Error Handler, a wrapper
      backend to make handling of backend errors more
      configurable. This backend is a C re-write of the beh
      backend written in Perl which was part of the former
      foomatic-filters package. Several people asked for beh
      getting moved to cups-filters.
    * braille: Make image printing working also if ImageMagick
      generates formatted images without header.
    * braille: If the user does not select a Braille translation,
      let the embosser do the translation.
    * cups-browsed: Added version info to help screen and start-up
      in debug mode, call help screen also via "--version" option.
    * cups-browsed: Minor improvements in help screen and man page.
  - Version upgrade to 1.5.0
    * cups-browsed: Allow use of an alternative configuration file
      via the "-c" command line option.
    * cups-browsed: Allow supplying configuration settings via the
      command line using the "-o" command line option.
    * cups-browsed: Command line help via the "-h" or "--help"
      command line option.
* Thu Dec 17 2015
  - Version upgrade to 1.4.0
    Changes in 1.4.0 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * foomatic-rip: SECURITY FIX: Also consider the semicolon
      (';') as an illegal shell escape character. Thanks to Adam
      Chester (adam dot chester at pentest dot co dot uk) for the
      hint CVE-2015-8560 (bsc#957531).
    * brftoembosser, imagetobrf, imagetoubrl, imageubrltoindexv3,
      imageubrltoindexv4, textbrftoindexv3, textbrftoindexv4,
      texttobrf, braille.convs, braille.types, generic-brf.drv,
      indexv3.drv, indexv4.drv: Added support for Braille
      embossing via CUPS. Text and even images can now be sent to
      a Braille embosser like to a printer. Thanks to Samuel
      Thibault (samuel dot thibault at ens-lyon dot org) for this
  - BuildRequires liblouis-devel is needed for Braille embossers.
  - Version upgrade to 1.3.0
    Changes in 1.3.0 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: Added new BrowseFilter directive in
      cups-browsed.conf.  This directive allows filtering of the
      remote printers to be accepted on most properties/metadata
      supplied with the DNS-SD broadcasts. This allows, in
      addition to BrowseAllow/BrowseDeny/BrowseOrder, to reduce
      the amount of printers listed in print dialogs to a more
      useful amount.
    * cups-browsed: Added support for BrowseDeny and BrowseOrder
      directives in cups-browsed.conf.
    * cups-browsed: Let the BrowseAllow lines in cups-browsed.conf
      also apply to remote printers discovered via DNS-SD.
  - Version upgrade to 1.2.0
    Changes in 1.2.0 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * foomatic-rip: SECURITY FIX: Also consider the back tick
      ('`') as an illegal shell escape character. Thanks to Michal
      Kowalczyk from the Google Security Team for the hint
      CVE-2015-8327 (bsc#957531).
  - Version upgrade to 1.1.0
    Changes in 1.1.0 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * Version numbering scheme changed: Releases with feature
      addition/change have the minor number increased now, pure
      bug fix releases get the revision number increased, to make
      use of the minor number which stayed zero all the time.
    * cups-browsed: Added "DefaultOptions" directive to
      cups-browsed.conf to allow defining default option settings
      for local queues to be generated for newly appearing remote
    * cups-browsed: Let option settings of a generated print queue
      be saved before taking the queue down so that when the remote
      printer appears again all user changes get restored, making
      user changes permanent on generated queues.
    * cups-browsed: Added a mode in which IP-based device URIs
      for the generation of local print queues are used, for
      cases with problems in local host name resolution.
    * foomatic-rip: Use -dFirstPage=... and -dLastPage=... only
      if really needed (Bug #1324).
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: Make the load-balancing
      configurable so that one can select whether the jobs get
      queued up locally like in a CUPS class or whether they get
      immediately distributed to the remote servers letting them
      queue up there.
  - FirstPage_LastPage_only_if_needed.patch is obsolete since
    version 1.1.0 because it is fixed in the sources.
* Wed Oct 07 2015
  - FirstPage_LastPage_only_if_needed.patch lets foomatic-rip
    add -dFirstPage=N [and -dLastPage=M] to the Ghostscript
    command line only if those options are actually needed
    (i.e. if FirstPage > 1 [and when LastPage >= FirstPage])
  - At least for now support for cups154 in the SLE12 legacy module
    is abandoned (by default SLE12 has CUPS 1.7.5) because newer
    cups-filters versions again use stuff that is provided
    since CUPS > 1.5.4 so that it does no longer build with
    CUPS 1.5.4. Perhaps I ( find time to fix it
    again for CUPS 1.5.4 but when not, newer cups-filters will
    no longer work with CUPS 1.5.4.
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.76
    Changes in 1.0.76 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: Let the load-balancing queue up
      the jobs in the local (generated) queue until a free (idle,
      enabled, and accepting jobs) remote queue is found (check
      every 5 sec if no free queue available). This gives a more
      even distribution of the work amongst the servers and
      protects against the case that a bunch of jobs gets
      inaccessible or lost if one of the servers fails.
    * cups-browsed: Let the load-balancing also check whether the
      destination queue is actually accepting jobs.
    * cups-browsed: If a generated queue is not removed on
      shutdown of cups-browsed due to remaining jobs in it,
      re-enable it in the next cups-browsed session even if it was
      disabled by something other than cups-browsed.
    * implicitclass: Clean up debug and error messages.
    * implicitclass: Fix exit codes for immediate retry of jobs.
    * cups-browsed: Make absence of CUPS notifications via D-Bus
      non-fatal and fall back to the old behavior of cups-browsed
      (fail-over instead of load balancing for equally-named
      remote queues, do not remove generated queue if it is
      default instead of default printer management). This solves
      problems of CUPS and/or cups-browsed built without D-Bus
      support or absence of D-Bus on the system (Bug #1316).
    * cups-browsed: Do not use g_warning() function, sneaked in
      by copy and paste of CUPS subscription functions.
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.75
    Changes in 1.0.75 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * texttopdf: Really support BoldItalic (original texttops
      just maps BoldItalic to Bold).
    * texttopdf: Fixed segfault when outputting BoldItalic
      (Bug #1314).
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.74
    Changes in 1.0.74 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: Added NULL check when getting the notification
      of a printer starting to process a job and checking whether
      this printer is created by cups-browsed with the
      implicitclass: backend (Ubuntu bug #1488524).
    * cups-browsed: Do not schedule printers for update when they
      are already marked as disappeared.
    * cups-browsed: Added sanity checks when saving the default
      printer selection in a file.
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: If remote queues disappear or
      cups-browsed shuts down and a cups-browsed-generated queue
      still has jobs and needs to be kept therefore, disable it
      and re-enable it when cups-browsed starts again and/or the
      remote queue(s) re-appear(s). This avoids repeated retries
      of the jobs while the remote server is not available, causing
      unneeded system load and battery consumption.
    * cups-browsed: After polling info from remote CUPS servers
      to find the best destination job, set the default CUPS server
      back to local.
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.73
    Changes in 1.0.73 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: Added missing
      utils/org.cups.cupsd.Notifier.xml file.
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.72
    Changes in 1.0.72 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed, implicitclass: Added load balancing
      functionality. If there are several remote CUPS printers
      with the same name, they for locally a cluster represented
      by a print queue with this name. This printer prints through
      a special backend (implicitclass) which makes cups-browsed
      find the best destination remote queue (fewest jobs,
      enabled) for this job.
    * cups-browsed: Added protection against accidental deletion of
      print queues generated by cups-browsed. These queues now get
      automatically re-created.
    * cups-browsed: Added LDAP support. Appropriately configured
      via cups-browsed.conf remote printers made available via LDAP
      will be looked up and local queues pointing to them created.
      Thanks to Raphael Geissert (atomo64 at gmail dot com) for
      contributing this patch (Debian bug #795185).
    * cups-browsed: Introduced new handling for the default printer
      using cache files. So we do not need to keep an auto-generated
      queue because it is set as default printer. If the
      auto-generated queue disappears, the old local printer is set
      as default again and when it re-appears it returns to be the
      default printer.
    * cups-browsed: Added infrastructure for subscribing to CUPS
      notifications for things like improved default printer
      handling, load balancing, ...
    * foomatic-rip: Prevent crash when supplying "media" option with
      empty value ("media=", Ubuntu bug #1479871).
    * pdftoopvp: Adaptations to API changes on Poppler 0.34.0, note
      that this patch disables color management in this filter.
      Thanks to Vincent le Garrec and Andreas K. Huettel for the
      patch (Bug #1301, Gentoo bug #554782).
    * texttopdf: Request the generic 'monospace' font alias from
      fontconfig instead of the hard-coded FreeMono. Thanks
      to Fabian Greffrath (fabian at debian dot org) for the
      patch (Debian bug #788048).
  - cups-filters-poppler-034.patch is obsolete since version 1.0.72
    because it is fixed in the sources.
* Thu Sep 03 2015
  - More appropriate URL entry in spec file:
    Now it is (wrapped URL)
    that shows mainly generic information instead of (wrapped URL)
    that provides mainly technical details.
* Sun Jul 26 2015
  - Add cups-filters-poppler-034.patch: Fix build with poppler-0.34.
    pdftoopvp: Adaptations to API changes on Poppler 0.34.0, note
    that this patch disables color management in this filter.
* Mon Jul 06 2015
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.71
    Changes in 1.0.71 (cf. the NEWS file but there is a typo
    in the NEWS file that claims the CVE number is 3259
    while the correct CVE number is 3279):
    * texttopdf: The Page allocation is moved into textcommon.c,
      where it does all the necessary checking:
      lower-bounds for CVE-2015-3258 (bsc#936281) and
      upper-bounds for CVE-2015-3279 (bsc#937018)
      due to integer overflows for the calloc() call
      initialising Page[0] and the memset() call in texttopdf.c's
      WritePage() function zeroing the entire array.
      Thanks to Tim Waugh from Red Hat for the patch.
    * texttopdf: Upper-bounds checking CVE-2015-3279 (bsc#937018).
* Mon Jun 29 2015
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.70
    Changes in 1.0.70 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * texttopdf: Fixed buffer overflow on size allocation
      of texttopdf when working with extremely small line sizes,
      which causes the size calculation to result in 0
      CVE-2015-3258 (bsc#936281), thanks to Stefan Cornelius
      from Red Hat for the patch.
    * cups-browsed: leak fixes
    * cups-browsed: Further BrowseAllow fixing
    * cups-browsed: BrowsePoll is an array of pointers,
      not structures, so allocate room for the pointers
    * cups-browsed: Prevent NULL dereference when handling
      BrowseAllow without value
    * cups-browsed: Use memory deallocation function
      corresponding to allocation function used
    * cups-browsed: Fixes for glib source handling
      (Red Hat bug #1228555)
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.69
    Changes in 1.0.69 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * cups-browsed: When checking whether a queue name already
      exists as a locally defined queue, do case-insensitive
      comparing as for CUPS printer names are case-insensitive.
      This assures that already existing queues do never get
    * cups-browsed: Added "IPPPrinterQueueType Auto/PPD/NoPPD"
      directive to cups-browsed.conf to allow controlling how
      cups-browsed creates queues fr native IPP network printers:
      with PPD, with System V interface script, or selecting
    * pdftopdf: Center Landscape-oriented jobs correctly
      on the page if the "fitplot" or "number-up" options
      are used (Bug #1284).
    * pstopdf: Removed "-dUseCIEColor" from the Ghostscript command
      line. In modern Ghostscript versions (9.11 and newer) it is
      recommended to not use it with the pdfwrite and ps2write
      output devices any more.
    * imagetopdf: Corrections in PDF output: Let evince display
      the PDF with the correct size including margins and let
      ghostscript not complain about an invalid xref entry.
    * sys5ippprinter: Renamed pdftoippprinter to reflect that it is
      once a System 5 interface script and second does not accept
      only PDF as input.
    * pdftoippprinter: Support also PWG Raster and JPEG as input
      formats so that an auto-generated, PPD-less queue for an
      IPP printer emulates an IPP Everywhere printer.
* Thu May 14 2015
  - Version bump to 1.0.68:
    * cups-browsed: Numeric IDs for GSources of the glib event
      loop must be positive integers greater than zero according
      to the documentation of the g_source_get_id() function.
      Taken care of this at all places.
    * cups-browsed: Added conditionals so that it also builds with
      CUPS 1.5.x (but then withou support for automatically creating
      queues for IPP network printers). Thanks to Johannes Meixner
      from SUSE for the patch (Bug #1268).
    * Ricoh-PDF_Printer-PDF.ppd: Added PPD file for Ricoh's PDF
      printers (experimental). Thanks to Ulrich Wehner from Ricoh
      for the file.
  - Remove upstream merged patch:
    * fix-create_local_queue-ifndef-HAVE_CUPS_1_6.diff
* Fri Mar 20 2015
  - For SLE12 build it with traditional CUPS 1.5.4 to ensure
    it works on SLE12 both with CUPS 1.7.5 and CUPS 1.5.4.
* Fri Mar 20 2015
  - fix-create_local_queue-ifndef-HAVE_CUPS_1_6.diff
    makes it compile again without errors also for CUPS <= 1.5.4
    by excluding code that uses CUPS >= 1.6 specific stuff,
    in particular by skipping create_local_queue for non-CUPS
    printer broadcasts for CUPS <= 1.5.4, see the upstream bug
* Thu Mar 12 2015
  - Reenable threads, seems to work fine. If there are thread
    related issues assign the bug to me.
* Thu Mar 12 2015
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.67
    Changes in 1.0.67:
    * cups-browsed: Use g_source_remove() instead of
      g_source_destroy() for killing auto shutdown timers
      (Ubuntu bug #1427344).
* Sat Mar 07 2015
  - Do no longer create foomatic-rip symlink that is now done
    by make install command (see bug #1255
    and the entry dated "Mon Aug 25 15:30:37 CEST 2014" below).
  - Fix postun call on cups-browsed to call right rpm macro
* Sat Mar 07 2015
  - Version bump to 1.0.66:
    * Many fixes in cups-browsed in particular a SECURITY FIX:
      Fixed a bug in the remove_bad_chars() failing to reliably
      filter out illegal characters if there are two or more
      subsequent illegal characters, allowing execution of arbitrary
      commands with the rights of the "lp" user, using forged print
      service announcements on DNS-SD servers
      (CVE-2015-2265, boo#921753, bug #1265).
    * Compat code for new poppler.
    * For detailed listing see NEWS file in documentation.
  - Use .xz for tarball, bit smaller, adds dep on xz, no biggie
  - Changes in verion 1.0.63 (excerpts):
    * foomatic-rip: Added hint to man page that direct,
      spooler-less mode is mainly for testing and debugging
      ( bug #1253, bsc#915545)
    * foomatic-rip: Added a symlink of the filter to the
      binary executable directory (usually /usr/bin),
      so that LSB compliance test scripts work
      ( bug #1255, bsc#915545).
* Mon Nov 10 2014
  - During installation of a whole openSUSE system
    cups-filters-ghostscript can be installed before cups
    and then there is no /usr/share/cups/mime/ directory
    so that it is created if needed (bnc#904652).
