Aug 17, 2001, 06:00 (8 Talkback[s])

"CUPS 1.1.10 adds a new driver for Dymo label printers, a new ClassifyOverride directive, a new BrowseProtocols directive, SLPv2 support, adds Asian language support to the PDF filter, and fixes a number of small bugs.

CUPS provides a portable printing layer for UNIX-based operating systems. It has been developed by Easy Software Products to promote a standard printing solution for all UNIX vendors and users. CUPS provides the System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces.

CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon ("LPD") Server Message Block ("SMB"), and AppSocket (a.k.a. JetDirect) protocols are also supported with reduced functionality. CUPS adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer Description ("PPD") based printing options to support real-world printing under UNIX."
