    The 1.1b2 release of the Common UNIX Printing System
    ("CUPS") is now available for download from the CUPS web site


    CUPS 1.1b2 is the second beta release for CUPS 1.1 which adds
    a new PostScript RIP based on GNU GhostScript 5.50, many new
    directory service features, and several fixes in the source
    code distribution. Currently only source distributions are
    being provided.

    Changes in v1.1b2 include:

            - Documentation updates.
            - The lp command didn't always load the user-defined
              destinations, preventing it from seeing the default
            - Many configure script and makefile fixes.
            - The Microsoft code page files were missing from the
            - Added a workaround for the HP IPP client (which is
              sending an invalid printer-uri in requests)
            - Fixed the encoding of text-with-language and
              name-with-language to match the IPP spec.
            - Added support for unknown value tags in the IPP
              routines (previously they would be ignored)
            - Integrated GNU GhostScript 5.50 into the pstoraster
            - Client hostname resolution was broken on little-endian
            - Now look at client.conf file for client's default
              server and printer.
            - The cupsServer() function did not close the
              client.conf file if it contained a ServerName
            - Added BrowseAllow, BrowseDeny, BrowseOrder,
              BrowsePoll, and BrowseRelay directives.
            - BrowseInterval 0 disables advertising of local
              printers, but still receives information on remote
            - New browse polling daemon (for polling servers on
              different networks)
            - New PPD cache file for faster startup times with large
              numbers of PPD files.
            - The Host: field was incorrectly required for HTTP/1.0
            - New set-job-attributes operation now supported.
            - The mime_load_types() and mime_load_convs() functions
              did not close their input files.
