cups-filters 1.8.3-2ubuntu3.2 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

cups-filters (1.8.3-2ubuntu3.2) xenial-proposed; urgency=medium

  * Applied several measure to avoid cups-browsed hanging on shutdowb
    (LP: #1638986):
     - Made sure that the local CUPS daemon is always accessed the same way
       and not sometimes via domain socket and sometimes via localhost:631.
     - Shortened timeouts for http connections so that in case of a
       server access failure the functions return more quickly.
     - Always close http connections correctly after use.
     - If the implicitclass backend fails to access a remote server, do
       not repeat the job immediately but after a certain time interval,
       to avoid cups-browsed getting notification bombs.
     - Call g_main_context_wakeup(NULL) after each g_main_loop_quit(gmainloop)

cups-browsed: OpenPrinting CUPS Filters - cups-browsed

 This package provides cups-browsed, a daemon which browses the Bonjour
 broadcasts of shared remote CUPS printers and makes the printers
 available locally, replacing the CUPS broadcasting/browsing which was
 dropped in CUPS 1.6.x. This way the old behavior of having the remote
 printers available automatically is now re-implemented with Bonjour.
 .
 cups-browsed is also useful with a CUPS >= 1.6 client to allow the
 latter to browse the printer list of CUPS < 1.6 servers (by using the
 old 'cups' protocol in BrowseRemoteProtocols).
 .
 cups-browsed is also useful with a CUPS >= 1.6 server to allow CUPS <
 1.6 clients to browse its printer list (by using the old 'cups'
 protocol in BrowseLocalProtocols).
