GPL-2.0-only AND GPL-2.0-or-later AND GPL-3.0-only AND MIT


* 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).
* Mon Aug 25 2014
  - 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
* Mon Aug 25 2014
  - 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
    * rastertopdf: Implemented basic 8bit->8bit color space
    * 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: 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
    * 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
    * 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
* Wed Jul 30 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.55
    Changes in 1.0.55 (excerpt - for details see the NEWS file):
    * pdftopdf: Fixed manual duplex by adding a blank page to even
      pages if the total number of pages of the document is odd.
      Otherwise the last page of the document would stay in
      the input tray. This fixes also a side effect as the set of
      even pages reducing to a zero page job if the job consists
      of only one page, making Poppler's pdftops error out
      (Ubuntu bug #1340435).
    * cups-browsed: Do not mark a discovered printer as already
      provided by another server when the other server's queue has
      "disappeared" status. This queue can be from the same server
      before it changed its name.
    * cups-browsed: Do not create a local queue pointing to a
      remote raw queue (Ubuntu bug #1335211).
    * foomatic-rip, imagetoraster, pdftoraster, rastertopclx,
      rastertopdf: Added colord "device_inhibit" support for
      color-managed filters.
    * bannertopdf: Fixed "Printer Location" and "Driver Version"
      entries on test page/banners ( bug #1209).
    * bannertopdf: Added new PDF template files which contain the
      text strings appropriate to the banners, before the banners
      were all equal, without text ( bug #1209).
    * pstopdf: Use "grep -E" instead of "grep -P" as the latter
      generates executable code and executes it, requiring
      "execmem" privileges which could be not available in some
      security policies. Thanks to Tim Waugh from Red Hat for the
      patch (Red Hat bug #1079534).
    * pdftoraster: Fixed segfault caused by introduction of
      "no-color-management" option ( bug #1214).
    * libcupsfilters: Let cupsRasterParseIPPOptions() also accept
      "pwg-raster-document-type" settings with hyphen between
      color space name and color depth.
  - Our separated source files classified.pdf confidential.pdf
    secret.pdf standard.pdf topsecret.pdf unclassified.pdf (see
    the entry below dated "Thu Jun 12 17:27:56 CEST 2014") are
    no longer needed because it is now provided in the upstream
    sources (see " bug #1209" entries above).
  - Added CVE-2014-4336 CVE-2014-4337 bnc#883543 and
    CVE-2014-4338 bnc#883536 to the matching entry below
    dated "Mon Apr 28 10:49:21 CEST 2014" because those CVEs
    and bncs have not been known at that time (cf. bnc#871327
    therein comment#47 and bnc#883307 therein comment#2).
* Thu Jun 12 2014
  - Have different header texts for the PDF-BANNER printouts
    (same headers as on the CUPS <= 1.5.4 banner pages):
    Provide PDF template files classified.pdf confidential.pdf
    secret.pdf standard.pdf topsecret.pdf unclassified.pdf and
    modify the matching /usr/share/cups/banners/ template files
    accordingly to use those PDF templates
* Wed Jun 11 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.54
    Changes in 1.0.54 (excerpt):
    * pdftoraster: Support for output in the color spaces 18
      (CUPS_CSPACE_SW, sGray), 19 (CUPS_CSPACE_SRGB, sRGB), and 20
      (CUPS_CSPACE_ADOBERGB, Adobe RGB). No color management
      appropriate to these color spaces is added yet.
    * rastertopdf: Added new filter to convert PWG Raster input
      into a PDF file (using QPDF). This filter makes CUPS
      supporting the PWG Raster input format which is required to
      be supported by IPP Everywhere printers, making a shared
      CUPS queue emulating an IPP Everywhere printer. This is a
      first implementation which supports the black, RGB, CMYK,
      sGray, sRGB, and Adobe RGB color spaces (all mapped to
      DeviceGray, DeviceRGB, and DeviceCMYK resp. in the PDF
      output) with 1, 8, and 16 bits per component color
      depth. sGray, sRGB, and Adobe RGB are currently also mapped
      to DeviceGray and DeviceRGB and do not have the correct
      color management yet, so color output is not absolutely
      correct. Note that mime.types of CUPS up to 1.7.2 has a bug
      which prevents PWG Raster to be recognized, the
      "priority(100)" of the rule needs to be changed to
    * cups-browsed: Create local queues also to access classes on
      remote CUPS servers (Ubuntu bug #1313741).
    * cups-browsed: Let a newly discovered printer not only
      overtaking an existing printer entry if it is from the same
      host (usually IPP -> IPPS) or without host entry
      (unconfirmed local queue from previous cups-browsed session)
      but also if it is marked disappeared. So printer entries get
      correctly migrated when things like a host name change of
      the remote server happen.
    * cups-browsed: Always do case-insensitive comparing of
      strings, as CUPS queue names and URIs are case-insensitive
      (CUPS STR #4411).
    For details see the NEWS file.
* Mon Apr 28 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.53
    Changes in 1.0.53:
    * foomatic-rip: Fixed segfault when creating log file, see
    * cups-browsed: SECURITY FIX: Fix on usage of the
      "BrowseAllow" directive in cups-browsed.conf. Before, if the
      argument of a "BrowseAllow" directive is not understood it
      is treated as the directive not having been there, allowing
      any host if this was the only "BrowseAllow" directive. Now
      we treat this as a directive which no host can fulfill, not
      allowing any host if it was the only one. No "BrowseAllow"
      directive means access for all, as before, see
      (CVE-2014-4338 bnc#883536 and bnc#871327 therein comment#23
      and subsequent comments).
    * cups-browsed: SECURITY FIX: Further improvement on the fix
      in 1.0.51 as it was insufficient. In addition, some fixes
      against OOB access are done (CVE-2014-4336 CVE-2014-4337
      bnc#883543 and bnc#871327 therein comment#30 and subsequent
  - Removed the "# BrowseAllow" example line in
    /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf because hostnames do not work, see
* Thu Apr 24 2014
  - Split cups-browsed into a cups-filters-cups-browsed sub-package
    so that cups-browsed can be installed without all the other
    stuff from cups-filters (bnc#873204).
  - Have* in the cups-filters-ghostscript
    sub-package because gstoraster is linked with libcupsfilters
    so that now cups-filters-foomatic-rip requires
    cups-filters-ghostscript which is still o.k. because
    cups-filters-ghostscript does not require cups-filters
    (cf. the entry dated "Thu Apr 10 10:22:25 CEST 2014" below).
  - Do no longer rename installed /usr/share/cups/banners/* files
    and the installed /usr/share/cups/data/testprint
    (cf. the entry dated "Fri Aug 30 12:53:57 CEST 2013" below)
    because since CUPS 1.7.2 those files are no longer provided
    in our cups RPM package because since CUPS >= 1.6
    the CUPS banners and testprint do no longer work because
    there is no longer a filter for Linux that can convert
    the CUPS banner files. Since CUPS >= 1.6 only the banners
    and testprint in cups-filters work (bnc#873376).
    For CUPS <= 1.5.4 (where CUPS banners and testprint works)
    this does not make a difference because the cups-filters
    main package conflicts with CUPS <= 1.5.4.
* Thu Apr 10 2014
  - Have* in the cups-filters-foomatic-rip
    sub-package because foomatic-rip is linked with libcupsfilters
    so that it must be in the cups-filters-foomatic-rip sub-package
    to ensure the cups-filters-foomatic-rip sub-package can be
    installed on its own without a RPM requirement for the
    cups-filters main package which would cause conflicts
    with CUPS <= 1.5.4 in particular when building packages
    with CUPS <= 1.5.4 that have foomatic-rip as build requirement
    (e.g. hplip via "BuildRequires: foomatic-filters").
* Tue Apr 08 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.52
    Changes in 1.0.52 (excerpt):
    * texttopdf, imagetopdf, imagetoraster:
      Range-check paper dimensions and margins taken
      from the PPD file and correct them if needed, see
* Thu Apr 03 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.51
    * cups-browsed: SECURITY FIX to prevent arbitrary code
      injection into the System V interface scripts generated for
      queues for discovered native IPP printers by a malicious IPP
      print service with forged make/model and/or PDL string
      (CVE-2014-2707 bnc#871327).
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.50
    Changes in 1.0.50 (excerpt):
    * pdftops: Let old HP LaserJet printers (model number without
      letter, like "LaserJet 3" or "LaserJet 4000") use Poppler
      instead of Ghostscript.
    * pdftops: Improved workaround for Toshiba printers. Instead
      of using Poppler do not emit TrueType fonts with Ghostscript.
* Thu Mar 27 2014
  - Provide foomatic-filters with the exact foomatic-rip version
    that is included in cups-filters and conflict with any other
    foomatic-filters version (bnc#870621).
* Wed Mar 26 2014
  - Upgrade to current tarball cups-filters-1.0-20140326.tar.gz
    that is is version 1.0.49 plus the fix for
    "percent-encode component parts of the CUPS device-URI"
    see also (bnc#869692).
  - Prepare spec files to build both releases and current tarballs
    easily in the future by using special different version strings.
* Tue Mar 25 2014
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.49
    Changes in 1.0.49 (excerpt):
    * pdftops: Fixed typo which always made PostScript level 2 being
      generated when using Poppler's pdftops.
    Changes in 1.0.48 (excerpt):
    * cups-browsed: Fix for a crash which happens on Bonjour reports
      of printers without "product", "usb_MDL", and "ty" fields
    Changes in 1.0.47 (excerpt):
    * pdftoopvp: SECURITY FIX for CVE-2013-6474, CVE-2013-6475,
      and CVE-2013-6476: Introductionof gmallocn and gmallocn3
      to protect against arbitrary code execution with the
      privileges of the "lp" user via malicious PDF files. Also
      restrict the directory from where OPVP drivers can get
    * urftopdf: SECURITY FIX for CVE-2013-6473: Two heap-based
      buffer overflow flaws in urftopdf. If a malicious URF file
      were processed it could lead to arbitrary code execution
      with the privileges of the "lp" user.
    * cups-browsed: Check for changes of the URI of a queue which
      we have created and correct the URI if needed
    Changes in 1.0.46 (excerpt):
    * gstoraster: Ignore SIGCHLD, rely on waitpid instead and
      fix two instances of insufficient EINTR handling.
    Changes in 1.0.45 (excerpt):
    * cups-browsed: Added auto-shutdown feature for on-demand use
      of cups-browsed (for example on mobile devices). With auto
      shutdown active, cups-browsed terminates after a certain
      time interval (30 sec by default) without having any remote
      printer to make available locally. The mode can be turned
      on, turned off (default) or set to automatically be off
      while avahi-daemon is running an on otherwise (controlled by
      avahi-daemon running on-demand). The mode and the timeout
      interval can be selected by command line options, the
      configuration file, and sending signals to cups-browsed
      (on/off only).
    * cups-browsed: To make Bonjour-discovered printers locally
      available avahi-daemon does not need to be started before
      cups-browsed and does not need to stay continuously running
      while cups-browsed is running. Bonjour-discovered printers
      are now added whenever avahi-daemon starts and removed
      whenever avahi-daemon stops and cups-browsed keeps running.
    * pdftops: Log command lines of renderer (Ghostscript, pdftops,
      pdftocairo, acroread) and of pstops in CUPS' error_log (in
      debug mode).
    Changes in 1.0.44 (excerpt):
    * README: Documented the "hybrid" choice for the PDF renderer
      in the pdftops filter.
    Changes in 1.0.43 (excerpt):
    * cups-browsed: When automatically setting up a PPD-less print
      queue for an IPP network printer add make/model info as an
      additional "make-and-model" command line option to the call
      of the pdftoippprinter filter, this way filters can do
      make/model-specific exceptions.
    * pdftops: Ignore "landscape", "orientation-requested",
      "fit-to-page", and any page geometry options. The first two
      do not make sense on PDF input and therefore should only be
      used in ...topdf filters used before pdftopdf, the others
      are already taken care of by pdftopdf so that pdftops gets
      pages with print-ready page geometry.
    * pdftopdf: If there is no PPD file or no
      "*LandscapeOrientation:" keyword in the PPD file, rotate
      counterclockwise, not clockwise to fit a landscape-oriented
      page on a portrait-oriented sheet.
    * pstopdf: Support for the "landscape" and
      "orientation-requested" options.
    * pdftops: After fixing the output of rotated PDF pages
      (usually landscape-oriented pages rotated by pdftopdf) in
      Poppler (Poppler/ bug #72312) corrected the
      use of "pdftops -origpagesizes" in pdftops appropriately.
    Changes in 1.0.42 (excerpt):
    * pdftoraster: Take into account rotate field in PDF header,
      when pdftopdf rotates a page to fit the paper it sets the
      rotate field and does not swap the width and height entries.
    * cups-browsed: Fixed several memory leaks by adding missing
      free() calls and removing an unneeded strdup().
    * foomatic-rip: Moved foomatic-rip's upstream home from the
      foomatic-filters package to cups-filters, to make it easier
      for distributions to ship and maintain a complete printing
      stack and also to make upstream maintenance and development
    * foomatic-rip: Removed support for all the non-CUPS printing
      environments as they are discontinued upstream. Now
      foomatic-rip only works as a CUPS filter and in a
      spooler-less direct mode, where the latter is mainly
      for testing and debugging.
    Changes in 1.0.41 (excerpt):
    * cups-browsed: Added support for automatic PPD-less setup of
      print queues for IPP printers discovered on the network via
      Bonjour. Supported are printers with known languages (PWG
      Raster, PDF, PostScript, PCL XL, PCL 5c/e), especially also
      IPP Everywhere printers. This functionality is especially
      ment for mobile devices to be able to print without printer
      setup tool and without printer driver/PPD collection.
    * pdftoippprinter: New filter for PPD-less printing. The filter
      will be configured as System-V interface script for a print
      queue for a discovered IPP network printer generated by
    * cups-browsed: Fixed socket leaks in recent IPP subscriptions
  - Since cups-filters version 1.0.42 foomatic-rip is also
    provided by cups-filters so that there is a file conflict
    with the foomatic-filters package (both provide
    /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip and
    /usr/share/man/man1/foomatic-rip). Therefore foomatic-rip
    is separated in the sub-package cups-filters-foomatic-rip
    and only that sub-package conflicts with foomatic-filters.
* Thu Mar 13 2014
  - Added "Recommends: poppler-tools" because /usr/bin/pdftops
    (provided by poppler-tools) is needed (but not required
    for non-PostScript printers) to print PDFs on PostScript
    printers (bnc#868148).
* Thu Jan 30 2014
  - Moved /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
    /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libcupsfilters.pc /usr/include/fontembed/*
    /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libfontembed.pc /usr/include/cupsfilters/*
    to the cups-filters-devel sub-package to fix rpmlint
    "devel-file-in-non-devel-package" errors.
* Fri Jan 10 2014
  - Split /usr/share/cups/ppdc/escp.h and /usr/share/cups/ppdc/pcl.h
    into a cups-filters-devel sub-package and let cups-filters-devel
    conflict with cups-devel < 1.6. because up to CUPS 1.5.4
    those files are provided by the cups-devel package
    (see the next entry below).
* Thu Jan 09 2014
  - Conflict with CUPS < 1.6 because up to CUPS 1.5.4
    the following files are provided by the cups binary RPM package
    and the following files are provided by the cups-devel package
* Thu Dec 19 2013
  - Split binary RPM sub-package cups-filters-ghostscript
    which is needed for Ghostscript version upgrade to 9.10.
    Since Ghostscript version 9.10 the CUPS filters
    gstoraster and gstopxl are removed from Ghostscript.
    Those filters are now provided by cups-filters.
    The binary RPM sub-package cups-filters-ghostscript
    provides only those CUPS filters for Ghostscript.
    This way cups-filters-ghostscript can be used
    with the traditional CUPS up to version 1.5.4
    where the other filters, backends, and cups-browsed
    from cups-filters would cause conflicts because
    CUPS <= 1.5.4 already provides them. In contrast
    for CUPS versions since 1.6 the whole cups-filters
    is usually needed (but not strictly required).
* Wed Oct 30 2013
  - Version upgrade to 1.0.40
    Changes in 1.0.40 (excerpt):
    * pdftops: Introduced new "hybrid" renderer: Here usually
      Ghostscript is used, but if the printer is a Brother,
      Minolta, or Konica Minolta Poppler's pdftops gets used. This
      is a quirk rule to work around bugs in the PS interpreters
      of the printers.
    Changes in 1.0.39 (excerpt):
    * pdftops: Fix for landscape PDF handling.
    Changes in 1.0.38 (excerpt):
    * pdftops: Added "-dNOINTERPOLATE" to the Ghostscript command
      line for quicker processing of embedded bitmaps.
    * pstopdf: Added "-dUseCIEColor" to the Ghostscript command
      line to assure compatibility with newer Ghostscript
      versions (9.08 and newer).
    Changes in 1.0.37 (excerpt):
    * Added example configuration files for systemd and Upstart, see
      (obsoletes cups-browsed.service).
    * Build system: Make sure that gstoraster gets linked against
      the libcupsfilters of the currently built package and not
      of the system (obsoletes broken-autotools.patch).
    * cupsfilters.convs: Reworked the cost factors of the filters
      to avoid bogus filter chains like pstotiff|imagetopdf
      instead of pstopdf|pdftopdf for PostScript->PDF, see
    * cups-browsed: Fixed building with CUPS 1.5.x and older,
      ippSetVersion() was missing under the accessor function
      definitions for backward compatibility
      (obsoletes cups-15-compat.patch).
    For details see the NEWS and README files.
  - cups-browsed.service is obsolete (provided in upstream sources).
  - broken-autotools.patch is obsolete (fixed in upstream sources).
  - cups-15-compat.patch is obsolete (fixed in upstream sources).
* Fri Aug 30 2013
  - Rename installed /usr/share/cups/banners/* files
    and the installed /usr/share/cups/data/testprint
    because those files are also provided by CUPS
    but CUPS provides them in a different format and
    I not want to overwrite CUPS files but I do not like
    to delete the cups-filters version of those files
    instead I like to provide them at least for now as well
    so that we could evaluate which ones we may use finally.
* Wed Aug 21 2013

    cups-browsed.service is openSUSE's systemd unit file.

* Wed Mar 13 2013
  - Version upgrade to cups-filters-1.0.30
  - cups-filters-1.0.30 does no longer build for openSUSE 12.1
    because configure requests 'glib-2.0 >= 2.30.2' but
    version of GLib in openSUSE 12.1 is 2.30.1.
* Fri Jan 04 2013
  - Version upgrade to cups-filters-1.0.29
    that adds cups-browsed.
  - fix_cups-browsed_init_script.patch
    adds LSB header line to cups-browsed init script
    otherwise the openSUSE brp-55-boot-scripts aborts build
    with "ERROR: found one or more broken init or boot scripts"
    and this patch changes "$avahi-daemon $cups" to "avahi cupsd"
    because there is no $avahi-daemon $cups in /etc/insserv.conf
    but /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon "Provides: avahi"
    and /etc/init.d/cups "Provides: cupsd"
    otherwise RPMLINT reports "init-script-undefined-dependency"
    and this patch removes runlevel 4 from Default-Start
    otherwise RPMLINT reports "init-script-runlevel-4".
* Fri Jan 04 2013
