« on: November 15, 2008, 03:06:00 pm »

rbistolfi has packaged the latest version of CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) for VL 5.9 and VL 5.9.1. Please note that this is a security patch and bugfix release.  If you are running cups 1.3.8 or earlier you probably should upgrade to this package.  As soon as we have adequate testing reports it will be moved to the patches repository assuming all is well.

MD5:  94116ff3d777bfcc0ec08581c2cf8944

cups: basis for managing print jobs and queues.  The CUPS package includes
cups: System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces, a PostScript RIP
cups: package for supporting non-PostScript printer drivers, and tools for
cups: creating additional printer drivers and other CUPS services.

After testing this package, please take a moment and come back to this thread to let us know how it works for you.
