Details

Updated cups packages that fix various bugs are now available.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for
UNIX operating systems. The CUPS "texttops" filter converts text files to
PostScript.

These updated cups packages fix the following bugs:

* previously, when the printer was removed from the class, the list of class
members was not updated properly. As a result, adding the printer of the same
name to the class resulted in the following error message:

Printer <printer> is already a member of class <class>

With this update, the member list is now updated as expected, and re-adding the
previously removed printer no longer results in the above error. (BZ#581902)

* when the class members were changed, /etc/cups/classes.conf was not always
updated accordingly. This issue has been resolved, and the configuration file is
now always updated as expected. (BZ#594621)

* previously, sending a document to a network printer using the socket URI
scheme could cause the actual printing to be delayed. This was due to the fact
that the socket back-end used to wait for any pending back-channel data, even
though the wait time option was set to zero. With this update, the pertinent
"wait_bc" function call has been removed, and printing the document is no longer
delayed. (BZ#612964)

Users of CUPS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues. After installing this update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted
automatically.
