database on the server (LP: #541690).

debian/patches/fix-margins-in-inches.patch: Fixed margin definitions in

* New upstream release
   - Removed ugly Perl workarounds to implement paper input tray selection
     for the PCL 4/5/5e/5c/6/XL Ghostscript drivers. Paper tray selection is
     fixed in GhostScript for some time already.
   - Removed explicit supply of PJL commands for setting the resolution
     with the PCL 6/XL Ghostscript drivers. This is fixed in Ghostscript
     for some time.
   - Set the resolution of the draft model of the PCL 6/XL Ghostscript drivers
     to 600 dpi, some printers, like the HP LaserJet 3390, do not print
     correctly with 300 dpi in PCL-XL mode.
   - Removed workaround against crashes of the "bjc600" and "bjc800" drivers
     when PDF is used as input. This is also fixed in Ghostscript for some
   - Fixed PIN option of the "hl7x0" driver, it had no long name (menu
     entry string) for the "None" setting.
   - Added the Brother PT-2300 label printer.
* debian/patches/bjc600-bjc800.patch: Removed, applied upstream.

   - Canon LBP-3360 needs "hpijs-pcl5e" instead of "pxlmono" as driver
     (LP: #504841).
   - Added "n" and "nw" version of HP LaserJet 1022, to make printer setup
     tools set them up with "foo2zjs" (LP: #250872).
   - Samsung CLP-610ND needs "splix" instead of "pxlcolor" as driver
     (LP: #505423, LP: #510832).

   - Lexmark's PostScript PPDs are free software and therefore included in

debian/patches/kyocera-ppd-jcl-fix.patch: Corrected OrderDependency
numbers for the JCL options so that the JCL code is definitely inserted
in the correct order (LP: #442451).

debian/foomatic-db.postinst, debian/openprinting-ppds.postinst,
debian/openprinting-ppds-extra.postinst: Fixed "lpstat -r" check for the
auto update of PPDs of existing queues. "lpstat -r" exits always with
status 0, we must check the actual output. Call lpstat, lpadmin, and
cupsctl with "-h /var/run/cups/cups.sock" to avoid querying remote
servers set up in /etc/cups/client.conf, and asking for passwords.
Thanks to Martin-√Čric Racine for tracking this down and the solution!
See Debian bug #543468. Use signal names instead of numbers for trap.
Quiesces a lintian bashism warning.

* debian/patches/remove-redundant-hp-ppds.patch: Remove redundant PPDs for
  HP's PostScript printers. These PPDs are already included in HPLIP and
  only the versions in HPLIP are maintained upstream.
* debian/control: Added "Suggests: hplip" to foomatic-db as the hplip package
  contains the PPD files for HP's PostScript printers.

47. By Till Kamppeter on 2009-08-25

* New upstream release
   - Added entries for non-PostScript versions of the Sharp printers
     (LP: #253905).
* debian/rules: Remove documentation files from PPD repositories.
