Release 0.96 of the HPIJS (HP Ink Jet Server) for HP Inkjets is now
available.

This release can be downloaded at
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=16846

The following release notes describe the release:

******************************************************
HP Linux Inkjet Driver 0.96 Release 
Updated the hpijs driver to APDK 2.4 which adds support for the following
printers. 

DeskJet980 
DeskJet960 
DeskJet350 
Photosmart 1000/1100 
Photosmart 1215/1218 

Thanks to David Paschal's input, we made a change to the PCL header
(header.cpp). Which will allow the hpijs driver to work with the OfficeJet
500, 600, 700 and PSC 300 series printers. This was only a problem when
running in MLC mode using the ptal-printd demon. 

Made a small change to the top and right margins in gdevhpij.c. This
corrects a problem where both ghostscript and hpijs were trying to set the
margins. 

Added some query commands to the gs/hpijs communication interface. These
commands can be used to return current printer parameters. 

This release is backward compatible with HPIJS 0.95.
