Things have been busy.
I went to lw in ny; a few printing related things were there, and some other neat things besides. I guess HP's inkjet drivers were the main thing. See the report. Revolution OS was particularly nice to see, especially so soon after I got annoyed enough at Antitrust to post an article.
Things are really falling into place for foomatic. It appears to be in Mandrake (for cups) and Red Hat (for magicfilter), and a Caldera fellow was popping up here and there. I've also gotten a couple friends to offer some coding assistance to help me spruce up some things.
I've begun the checkin/checkout code; this is a prerequisite to lots of things so I'm excited to be underway. Once that's done, better interoperation with complicated drivers like OMNI can be implemented, and user tools will be able to make easier use of the information.
