Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Kellie for this link. ]

OMNI is now listed on linuxprinting.org as Foomatic now supports it. This makes the 400+ printers supported by OMNI more easily available to Linux distributions which use the Foomatic print system.

Version 0.6.1 released on April 19, 2002

Added new DeviceString class to handle translateable Strings.

Added getDeviceID () function to Orientation, Resolution, Form, Tray, Media, and PrintMode Device classes. Added the optional deviceID XML tag to those XML files.

Trying to work on documention issues.

Fixed the Ghostscript interface gomni.c. There are new patches for Ghostscript!

Added install target to Makefile.

Added RedHat directory which contains spec files for RPMs. Rewrote UPDF to use XML file dynamically instead of converting to cpp files and compiling into a library.

Added beta-level CUPS support!

Added support for libxml2 (thanks to for spotting that)
