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).
