The 1.1.1 release of the Common UNIX Printing System ("CUPS") is
now available for download from the CUPS web site at:


CUPS 1.1.1 fixes several small bugs as well as some build and
security issues that have been identified by CUPS users. 
Binaries for several platforms are available.

Changes in v1.1.1 include:

	- The pstoraster Makefile still referenced one of the
	  old PDF filter files.
	- The filter Makefile used INSTALL_DATA instead of
	  INSTALL_LIB to install the CUPS image library.
	- The administration CGI didn't work properly with
	  network devices.
	- The BrowseACL variable was not updated after the
	  cupsd.conf file was loaded.
	- The lpd mini-daemon didn't support printer instances.
	- Now use a default umask of 077 for child processes.
	- Now put temp files in /var/spool/cups/tmp for child
	  processes and the root user, unless TMPDIR or TempDir
	  is defined otherwise.
	- cupsGetPPD() no longer uses easy-to-guess filenames.
	- The CUPS-Delete-Class and CUPS-Delete-Printer
	  operations now save classes.conf file as needed.
	- The lppasswd command wouldn't add a user.
	- The ppdOpen() function could cause a segfault if a
	  0-length PPD file was read.
	- The image filters were not handling images with
	  different X and Y resolutions properly.
	- The imagetoraster filter defaulted to RGB output
	  instead of black output like pstoraster.
	- The pstops filter didn't handle binary data properly.
	- The pstops filter didn't handle copies properly for
	  PS files lacking DSC comments.
	- The pstops filter now appends %%EOF to the end of
	  documents if they don't have it.
	- The cupsGetPPD() function didn't work with remote
	  printers lacking the @server in the name.
	- The configure script didn't work right when only
	  --prefix was specified.
	- The ppdEmit() code now wraps all printer commands so
	  that buggy PostScript printers will still print a file
	  after receiving an option that isn't available.
	- Fixed the DeskJet margin bug, and disabled 600dpi
	  color mode until it can be fixed.
	- The cupsAddDest() function didn't sort instances
	  correctly in all cases.
	- The time-at-xyz attributes now expand to the date and
	  time in banner files.
