Author: JT Smith

Easy Software Products today announced
the 1.1.10 release of the Common UNIX Printing System ("CUPS"), an
IPP/1.1-based printing system for UNIXCUPS 1.1.10 adds a new driver for Dymo label printers, a new ClassifyOverride
directive, a new BrowseProtocols directive, SLPv2 support, adds Asian language
support to the PDF filter, and fixes a number of small bugs. Binaries for several

CUPS provides a portable printing layer for UNIX®-based operating systems. It
has been developed by Easy Software Products to promote a standard printing
solution for all UNIX vendors and users. CUPS provides the System V and
Berkeley command-line interfaces.

CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing print
jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon ("LPD") Server Message Block
("SMB"), and AppSocket (a.k.a. JetDirect) protocols are also supported with
reduced functionality. CUPS adds network printer browsing and PostScript Printer
Description ("PPD") based printing options to support real-world printing under
UNIX.

CUPS also includes a customized version of GNU Ghostscript (currently based off
GNU Ghostscript 5.50) and an image file RIP that are used to support
non-PostScript printers. Sample drivers for HP and EPSON printers are included
that use these filters.

Drivers for thousands of printers are provided with our ESP Print Pro software,
available at:
