Rejoice, all ye lands. CUPS 1.1.2 packages are in woody.
All the build problems are gone, and upgrades from 1.0.4
should be smooth as silk.
On an unrelated note, gtaylor
popped a note to me about integrating gs with CUPS. One
thing led to another, and we got to talking about his
foomatic project, which it looks like I'm going to package
for Debian. This will likely be the mechanism for
integrating gs into CUPS, although the package scope will go
far beyond CUPS itself. This will be mondo cool, I think,
and has the potential to make printing on Linux infinitely
better, whether you use CUPS, PDQ, lpd, LPRng, or whatever.
I just read the humorous piece about Wall Street "rejecting"
Linux. The "rejection" itself isn't too bad; how long has
Bob Young been saying that his goal is to reduce OSes to
commodities? It's the implications in the article that kill
me. The fact that Linux isn't the darling of Wall Street
somehow has implications in the IT workplace in terms of
Linux's appropriateness in day-to-day operations. I wonder
if Red Hat systems somehow start breaking if RHAT drops
below 50 on NASDAQ. Anyone know? (Debian, of course,
crashes constantly, since it's run by a non-profit, and
Windows is the most stable of the bunch, although the
antitrust trial has caused a few more BSODs than usual
Next on the agenda: diald. Grandma's in town with the wife
and kids, giving me play time. :-)
