111. By Didier Raboud on 2013-05-03

Update the patch adding libusb error handling to also discard its
errors in the counting of warning messages; this should make the
error-suite succeed in more cases.

110. By Didier Raboud on 2013-05-01

[ Till Kamppeter ]
* In Ubuntu, let the cups-daemon binary package depend on
  avahi-daemon, not only recommend it, as the Upstart script for CUPS
  starts CUPS only after starting avahi-daemon (LP: #1133794).
* In the logrotate config file: Do not remove CUPS' log files while
  the CUPS daemon is running. Stop CUPS, move the files, and then
  start it again. This avoids crashes during the log rotation process
  (LP: #1086019).
* Add patch to add more error handling to the libusb-based USB
  backend, especially to avoid a crash when USB is disabled in the
  BIOS (LP: #1108719).

109. By Till Kamppeter on 2013-04-15

Added quirk rule for the QinHeng CH340S USB->Parallel adapter.
(LP: #1000253)

108. By Didier Raboud on 2013-04-12

[ Till Kamppeter ]
* Let the DNS-SD subtype "_universal" get added to the printer's
  DNS-SD registration; it is needed for iOS to find the printers.
* Merged the quirk rule patches, added quirk rules for five
  additional printers:
  - Lexmark e250d (LP: #1084164)
  - Canon PIXMA iP6000D (LP: #1160638)
  - Canon MF4150 (LP: #1160638)
  - Brother HL-1450 (LP: #1000253)
  - Epson Stylus Color 670 (LP: #872483)

[ Martin Pitt ]
* Allow "audit_write" capability in AppArmor profile. (LP: #1157318)

107. By Didier Raboud on 2013-03-21

[ Didier Raboud ]
* Update the upstream status of the manpage-hyphen-minus patch.
* Cleanup cups-server-common cleanup. Fixes FTBFS for arch-only build.

[ Till Kamppeter ]
* Added rm_conffile /etc/logrotate.d/cups 1.6.2-3~ to clean up
  logrotate conffile if it did not get moved by the mv_conffile line
  (LP: #1157758)

106. By Didier Raboud on 2013-03-20

* Split architecture independent documentation and files out of cups,
  to cups-server-common:
  - Patch the documentation generation to make it fully arch-independant
* Packages cleanup:
 - In cups-daemon, drop superfluous Suggests against lsb-base.
 - Add missing DEP3 headers.
 - Add missing 'empty-directory' lintian overrides.
 - Add patch to correct all hyphen-used-as-minus-sign lintian errors.

105. By Didier Raboud on 2013-03-19

* New upstream release
  - Adds localizations for Czech, French, and Russian
  - Adds several improvements to the USB backend on Linux
  - Fixes several printing and tool bugs

* Patches:

    (Closes: #697970)
* Manpage translation infrastructure:
  - Refresh it.
  - Allow the translation of the ipptool and ipptoolfile manpages.
  - Fix translation infrastructure typos, to get 'man cups-files.conf'
* More cups-daemon split cleanup:
  - Drop superfluous Priority snd Section settings.
  - Install the forgotten ipp14 backend.
  - Drop two unmatched lintian overrides.
  - Drop ipp and ipp14 from the cups backends selection; they are
    shipped unconditionally in cups-daemon.

  - Alter the cups-daemon short description.
* In cups-client, add 'accept' and 'reject' manpage symlinks.
* Bump private symbols version to latest upstream.

104. By Didier Raboud on 2013-03-09

  privilege escalation"

103. By Didier Raboud on 2013-02-14

[ Till Kamppeter ]

  (Closes: #698213)
* Take manpage translations out of the manpage-translations patch to
  ease external contributions to the .po files.
* Add usb-backend quirk for Epson Stylus Photo 750 (Closes: #697970)

[ Marc Deslauriers ]
* debian/local/apport-hook.py: Also attach AppArmor information and logs.

[ Jamie Strandboge ]
* debian/local/apparmor-profile: deny capability block_suspend. It is noisy
  and doesn't seem to actually be needed. This can be revisited if it turns
  out it is needed. (LP: #1031583)

[ Till Kamppeter ]
* debian/patches/ipp-backend-cups-1.5.4-fixes.patch,
  debian/patches/colord-support.patch: Removed, included upstream.
* debian/patches/dnssd-reg-array-linear-search.patch: Removed, not applicable

* debian/patches/network-backends-snmp-queries-optional.patch: SNMP queries
  by network backends can get suppressed now by adding "?snmp=false" to the
  end of the URI. SNMP queries to Bonjour-shared CUPS queue will get
  suppressed by default.
* debian/patches/usb-backend-reset-after-job-only-for-specific-devices.patch:
  Let the USB backend only send a clean-up reset after the job if it is
  really needed (LP: #1032456), force-uni-directional access for Canon
  Pixma iP4200 (CUPS STR #4155) and iP4300 (LP: #1032385).
* debian/patches/usb-backend-more-quirk-rules.patch: Added more quirk rules
  which are not yet committed upstream: Canon MP500 (LP: #1032456), MP510
  (LP: #1050009), MP550 (CUPS STR #4155), MP560 (CUPS STR #4155), Brother
  HL-1430 (LP: #1038695), Oki Okipage 14ex (LP: #872483), Oki B410d
  (LP: #872483), all Zebra printers (LP: #1001028).
* debian/patches/cupsd-conf-remove-obsolete-browse-directives.patch:
  Removed obsolete "BrowseOrder" and "BrowseAllow" lines from cupsd.conf.
* debian/patches/get-ppd-file-for-statically-configured-bonjour-shared
  Applications could not get the PPD file for statically-configured Bonjour-
  shared print queues (CUPS STR #4159)
* debian/patches/get-ppd-file-for-statically-configured-ipp-shared
  Applications could not get the PPD file for statically-configured IPP-
  shared print queues (CUPS STR #4178)
* debian/patches/printers-c-recognize-remote-cups-queue-via-dnssd-uri.patch,
  Treat raw queues pointing to a CUPS server as remote queues (using PPD on
  server) also if they have a "dnssd://..." URI.
* debian/patches/avahi-not-considered-at-some-dnssd-conditionals.patch: At
  some points Avahi was not considered in conditionals for DNS-SD. This
  broke most of the printer sharing functionality.
* debian/patches/prevent-crash-due-to-null-host-name-or-fqdn-from-avahi.patch:
  Prevent crash due to NULL host name or FQDN from Avahi (CUPS STR #4183,
  LP: #1046982, LP: #1034045).
* debian/patches/fix-crash-on-shutdown-caused-by-broken-avahi-config.patch:
  Fix crash on shutdown caused by broken Avahi config (CUPS STR #4192,
  LP: #1036974).
* debian/patches/fix-another-spot-where-avahi-crashes-cupsd-because-it-does
  Fix another spot where Avahi crashes cupsd because it does not handle NULL
  values returned by its own APIs (CUPS STR #4200, LP: #1041013).
* debian/patches/cupsd-no-crash-on-avahi-threaded-poll-shutdown.patch:
  Fixed crash which sometimes happens on shutdown of the CUPS daemom,
  caused by a wrong shutdown sequence for shutting down the Avahi threaded
  poll (CUPS STR #4213, CUPS STR #4180, LP: #1034045).
* debian/patches/filter-out-all-control-characters-from-the-1284-device
  Do not only filter newline characters out of device IDs but any
  non-printable character (CUPS STR #4124).
* debian/patches/ipp-backend-did-not-specify-the-compression-used.patch:
  The IPP backend did not specify the compression used (CUPS STR #4181).
* debian/patches/ipp-backend-did-not-send-cancel-request-to-printers-when-a
  The IPP backend did not send a cancel request to printers when a job was
  canceled and the printer did not support Create-Job. This is to improve the
  "ipp" backend as much as possible to reduce the ned of the "ipp14" backend
  ("ipp" backend of CUPS 1.4.x added to the Debian/Ubuntu package as fallback
  in case of regressions of the current "ipp" backend).
* debian/patches/work-around-some-broken-ipp-printers.patch: Work around
  some broken IPP printers (CUPS STR #4190). Also catch late authentication
  issues so the backend doesn't just spin on a print request that will never
* debian/patches/ipp-backend-abort-the-outer-loop-if-we-get-a-failure-from
  Prevent IPP backend from falling into an infinite loop in certain
  situations (CUPS STR #4194).
* debian/patches/fix-make-check.patch: Fix "make check".
* debian/patches/ubuntu/ubuntu-disable-browsing.patch: Updated.
* debian/cups.install: Removed all references to the discontinued cups-polld.
* debian/rules: Removed lines for deletion of filters, fonts and glyphs which
  have moved to cups-filters and also the line for commenting out conversion
* debian/rules, debian/cups.install, debian/cups-common.install: Do not
  install fonts and charsets, there are none any more in CUPS.
* debian/control, debian/libcupsdriver1-dev.install,
  debian/libcupsdriver1.symbols, debian/libcupsdriver1.install:
  libcupsdriver.so got moved to cups-filters as part of libcupsfilters.so.
* debian/libcupsimage2-dev.install: image.h removed, this API has moved to
* debian/rules: Removed "--with-remote_protocols='CUPS dnssd'" from the
  ./configure command line and removed the "CUPS" from
  "--with-local_protocols='CUPS dnssd'". These settings are not supported
  any more in CUPS 1.6.x.
* debian/rules, debian/libcups2-dev.examples: Removed references to scripting/
  this subdirectory does not exist any more in CUPS 1.6.x.
* debian/libcups2.symbols, debian/libcupsimage2.symbols: Refreshed using the
  diff of the dpkg-gensymbols output during build.
* debian/cups.postinst: Clean /etc/cups/cupsd.conf from all keywords and
  settings which got obsolete with the dropping CUPS Broadcasting/Browsing
  in CUPS 1.6.x: BrowsePoll, BrowseAllow, BrowseDeny, BrowseOrder, and
  BrowseRemoteProtocols lines get removed and the "cups" argument gets
  removed from the BrowseLocalProtocols line (LP: #1052897).
* Split the "cups" binary package into "cups" and "cups-daemon".
  Installation of "cups-daemon" without "cups" gives a CUPS
  environment for raw queues only, especially as a client-only mode
  with queues pointing to remote printers set up automatically with
  cups-browsed from cups-filters. This environment gives basic
  printing support on low-footprint mobile systems, like Ubuntu for

  content fetch.
* Re-order patches to put the tests-fixing ones earlier.
* Rename tests-slow-lpstat.patch to
  tests-wait-on-unfinished-jobs-everytime.patch : wait on remaining
  jobs before each test. This fix the too slow architectures' FTBFS.
* When modprobe'ing usblp, respect the blacklist. Thanks to Julien
  Cristau for noticing!
* Use cups-filters' filters, type declarations, conversions, libraries
  and banners in the tests. Add cups-filters' and libcupsfilters1-dev

* Drop cupsddk transitional package, was transitional in Squeeze.
* Make libcupsimage2 depend on libcupsfilters1 as functions (and
  exported symbols) moved there.

  when they exist. This allows the build to be more robust against
  non-complete translations.
* Disable pstops-based-workflow-only-for-printing-ps-on-a-ps-printer.patch,
  as it breaks the build tests in 1.6.1. Re-opens #593338.

  (dnssd) stopped with status 1" errors.
* Make sure internal libraries relationships are tight enough.
* Fix STR#4223 "lpadmin to root privilege escalation" by including the
* upstream heavy fix.
  Fixes CVE-2012-5519, Closes: #692791.
