Hi folks,                                      Monday (30 November 2009)

[Based on Rick Landau's note of 1 October about MOF bugs]

I've just posted four existing CIM printing classes to:

  ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/cim/mofinput/ira-20091130.zip

    rel_1130.txt
    - this release note

    CIM_Printer.mof / pdf
    - minor NEW version - editorial fixups and deprecations

    CIM_PrintChannel.mof / pdf
    - minor NEW version - add new enums from IANA Printer MIB

    CIM_PrintInputTray.mof / pdf
    - minor NEW version - delete duplicate property

    CIM_PrintInterpreter.mof / pdf
    - minor NEW version - add new enums from IANA Printer MIB

Notes:

(1) All four classes have been compiled with Windows 'mofcomp'.

(2) PDFs are color-highlighted output from Notepad++.

(3) CIM_PrintInputTray and CIM_PrintOutputTray already *had* the correct
    inheritance (from CIM_PrinterElement like all the other subunits)
    in CIM v2.19, but CIM_PrintInputTray still had duplicate InstanceId.

After WIMS WG review, including by Rick Landau, we need to generate the
CIM Change Requests (CRs) for these updates.

Cheers,
- Ira

PS - Both CIM_PrintService and CIM_PrintJob still need to be updated to
add XPS and OpenXPS enums from IANA Printer MIB - coming soon.
