Fri May 29 12:27:36 CEST 2009 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Removed all TurbolinuxJapanesePPDs because all contain
  "cupsomatic" as "cupsFilter" but "cupsomatic" is outdated
  since a long time and no longer included in our up-to-date
  foomatic-filters version 4.0.1 package. It might work to
  create a symbolic link "cupsomatic -> foomatic-rip"
  in the /usr/lib[64]/cups/filter/ directory to still use
  outdated "cupsomatic" PPDs even with a current foomatic-rip
  but it was not tested to what extent this might work.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

- Keep all PPDs even if cupstestppd FAILs.
  With each CUPS version upgrade cupstestppd finds more
  and more errors so that more and more PPDs would be
  no longer included in the RPM which have been included
  before which results a regression.
  As far as we know there have been no problems at all because of
  not strictly compliant PPDs in so that it is much better
  to provide all PPDs so that the matching printers can be used
  than to be rigorous regarding compliance to the PPD spec.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 18 12:12:58 CEST 2007 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Add a line-feed to the end of all PPDs to fix those PPDs where
  it is missing. See Novell/Suse Bugzilla bug #309832:
  Unix/Linux text files must end with a line-feed.
  Otherwise reading the last line results EOF and then some
  programs may ignore the last line.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 12 15:52:21 CEST 2007 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Ignore cupstestppd FAILs because of errors in UIConstraints
  and/or NonUIConstraints which are detected since cupstestppd
  in CUPS > 1.2.7 (i.e. since openSUSE 10.3).
  See Novell/Suse Bugzilla bug #309822: When this bug is fixed,
  cupstestppd would no longer result zero exit code.
  In the long run the PPDs should be fixed but as far as we know
  there have been no problems because of such UIConstraints errors
  so that it should be o.k. let those PPDs pass even if they are
  not strictly compliant.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Nov 27 14:33:19 CET 2006 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Re-enable the TurbolinuxJapanesePPDs for the alc4000 driver
  in Ghostscript which seems to work now.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov  7 10:49:05 CET 2006 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Fixed Ricoh-DDP_92_PS.ppd and Ricoh-DDP_92_PS.plainPS.ppd

Mon Sep 12 12:57:18 CEST 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Several HP PPDs contain "600x600x2dpi" which is not allowed
  according to the Adobe PPD specification section 5.9
  and which is therefore simply replaced by "600x1200dpi"
  (see Suse bugzilla bug #116393).

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Mon Aug 22 11:35:34 CEST 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

  so that YaST selects them preferred because those models
  do not understand PostScript by default but only optionally.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Aug 18 11:34:33 CEST 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Added 136 pxlmono driver (PCLXL resp. "PXL") Ricoh PPD files

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Jul  4 14:42:07 CEST 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

  Ricoh, Gestetner, Infotec, Lanier, NRG, and Savin.
- Additional Epson PPDs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Mar 17 15:41:02 CET 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Removed non-working PPDs:
  TurbolinuxJapanesePPDs/*alc4000* do no longer work
  because Epson's alc* Ghostscript devices do no longer work
  together with old cupsomatic and new Ghostscript 8.x and
  hp/hp_color_LaserJet_9500.ppd and hp/HP_Designjet_*.ppd
  have non working '*cupsFilter: .../hppostprocessing' entries.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Mar  7 14:19:56 CET 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

  Ricoh's PPDs appear under the brand names
  Ricoh, Gestetner, Infotec, Lanier, NRG, and Savin.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Feb 18 14:37:06 CET 2005 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Updated HP PPDs:
  Fixed a few bugs and several warnings in HP's PPDs.
- Updated Sharp PPDs:
  Our special patched cupstestppd does no longer fail
  because of 'Bad Duplex choice' (is now only a warning).
- Updated Kyocera PPDs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 16 13:58:52 CEST 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Updated Oki PPDs
- Because of a bug in cupstestppd in CUPS version 1.1.21
  (see http://www.cups.org/str.php?L903)
  cupstestppd fails for most PPDs from Sharp.
  Therefore I tested Sharp's PPDs manually and package them
  without an automated test by cupstestppd.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Aug 24 16:47:30 CEST 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- Updated HP's PPDs (all under MIT license).
- Fixed a few bugs and several warnings in HP's PPDs.
- Removed all the "ugly hacking stuff" (see Thu Mar 25 12:14:20)
  because this is no longer needed because in next SUSE LINUX
  version YaST has a button to let the user choose between
  the usual PPD selection via manufacturer and model name
  and a plain list of PPDs by NickName and filename (bug 37486).

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Jun 14 15:27:48 CEST 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- added Oki PPDs
- PPDs from Oki under GPL
- Addendum regarding the changelog entry Thu Mar 4 10:35:12:
    The mentioned prefix was removed by EPSON a few days later.
    Therefore the EPSON PPDs are under the normal MIT license.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Mar 25 12:14:20 CET 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- added ugly hacking stuff because we must have consistent values
  for the *Manufacturer and *ModelName entries in all our packages
  (cups, cups-drivers, cups-drivers-stp and manufacturer-PPDs)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Mar 22 13:52:24 CET 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Mar 19 16:49:19 CET 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- added special Japanese PPDs from Turbolinux
  (those PPDs have been formerly in the cups-drivers package
   but such PPDs belong to the manufacturers-PPDs package)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Mar 15 15:54:30 CET 2004 - jsmeix@suse.de

- removed HP's old version PPDs with different file name
