foomatic-filters 4.0.12-1 source package in Ubuntu


foomatic-filters (4.0.12-1) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Till Kamppeter ]
  * New upstream release
     - If incoming PDF needs to be converted to PostScript
       due to the filter command line not being a standard Ghostscript
       command line, no separate PDF command line being supplied, or
       options in the PPD being implemented by PostScript code, use
       preferrably Ghostscript (with the "ps2write" device) for this
       conversion as Ghostscript is better optimized for printing and
       has a more sophisticated color management compared to Poppler.
     - SECURITY FIX: Use the mktemp shell command/mkstemp() function to create
       the debug log file and the renderer input data file (both files only
       generated when foomatic-rip is un in debug mode) with file names with an
       unpredictable part. The names are /tmp/foomatic-rip-XXXXXX.log and
       /tmp/ where the XXXXXX and YYYYYY are replaced by
       random strings. Thanks to Tim Waugh from Red Hat for for the patch
       (Upstream bug #936, CVE-2011-2924).
  * debian/patches/use-ghostscript-for-pdf-to-ps.patch: Removed, merged

foomatic-filters: OpenPrinting printer support - filters

 Foomatic is a printer database designed to make it easier to set up
 common printers for use with UNIX-like operating systems.
 It provides the "glue" between a print spooler (like CUPS or lpr) and
 the printer, by processing files sent to the printer.
 This package consists of filters used by the printer spoolers
 to convert the incoming PostScript data into the printer's native
 format using a printer-specific, but spooler-independent PPD file.
 For use with CUPS, you will need both the cups and cups-client
 packages installed on your system.
