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. For each reported remote CUPS queue cups-browsed creates a local raw queue pointing to the remote queue so that it appears in local print dialogs and is also available for printing via the command line. Also high availability with redundant print servers is supported. If there is more than one server providing a print queue with the same name, cups-browsed uses the first queue which appears and if this queue disappears, cups-browsed switches to the queue of another server. Load-balancing (what CUPS <= 1.5 did via implicit classes) is not supported with cups-browsed.
