    2014-11-19 - - Rebuild to install cups-filters-ghostscript correctly (boo#904652)

    2014-08-25 - - A /usr/bin/foomatic-rip -> /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip symlink is added to the cups-filters-foomatic-rip sub-package to make our lsb RPM installable again (bnc#892604). LSB currently requires /usr/bin/foomatic-rip but future LSB will require /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip see

    2014-08-25 - - Version upgrade to 1.0.58 Changes in 1.0.58 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file): * pdftoraster: Changed ICC profile get function to accept a PPD fallback profile. * pdftoraster: Fixed handling of cupsColorSpaces 18,19,20. * rastertopdf: Grayscale color conversion now properly inverts bits. * rastertopdf: Implemented basic 8bit->8bit color space conversions. * rastertopdf: Added black point compensation. * rastertopdf: Added handling of color rendering intent. * gstoraster, imagetoraster, pdftoraster, rastertopclx, rastertopdf, foomatic-rip: Use color management functions in libcupsfilters. * libcupsfilters: Modified code formatting and documentation in the color management functions. * libcupsfilters: Fixed string handling and added debug log messages in the color management functions. * libcupsfilters: Fixed Adobe RGB matrix for proper rendering (transpose) * libcupsfilters: Moved color management functions from the individual filters to the libcupsfilters library. - Version upgrade to 1.0.57 Changes in 1.0.57 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file): * Build system: Explicitly link to libm as -lm was dropped from cups-config --libs. * libcupsfilters, foomaticrip, gstoraster, imagetoraster, pdftoraster, rastertopclx, rastertopdf: Handle absence of colord or D-Bus gracefully (Ubuntu bug #1356405). - Version upgrade to 1.0.56 Changes in 1.0.56 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file): * Major regression fix in cups-browsed (introduced in 1.0.55 by no longer creating a local queue pointing to a remote raw queue that causes no longer creating local queues for traditional CUPS Browsing remote CUPS queues): Do not consider a remote CUPS queue as raw if the TXT record is NULL as for queues broadcasted by the legacy CUPS method the TXT record does not exist. Now consider a queue with NULL TXT record only as raw if the domain entry is not empty which tells that the queue is Bonjour-broadcasted ( bug #1223). * cups-browsed: Do also not mark a discovered printer as already provided by another server when the other server's queue has "unconfirmed" status. Mark the other queue with "disappeared" or "unconfirmed" status as duplicate of the discovered printer so that the new queue for the discovered printer does not get removed when the entry for the other queue times out. * rastertopdf: Some code polishing and removal of now unneeded functions * rastertopdf: Reduced color space handling to only PWG-supported color spaces * rastertopdf: Added colorspace calibration function; included optional "/Alternate" PDF key for ICC profile embedding * rastertopdf: Colorspace sRGB now embeds srgb icc profile; implemented ICC Profile embedding (PDF 1.3 spec) * rastertopdf: Added basic color calibration * rastertopdf: Implemented ICC Profile creation code for IPP Everywhere (from PWG raster) * pdftoraster: Added colord handling of ICC profiles
