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).

* Fix PDF printing regression caused by latest Ghostscript security
updates (LP: #1828401)
- debian/patches/lp1828401.patch: don't use undocumented Ghostscript
function in filter/foomatic-rip/pdf.c.

2016-08-18 - Till Kamppeter <>
cups-filters (1.8.3-2ubuntu3.1) xenial-proposed; urgency=medium
* Added "Requires=cups-service" to the cups-browsed.service file to make
cups-browsed always shut down before CUPS to avoid the system hanging
during shutdown (LP: #1579905).
2016-04-20 - Adam Conrad <>
cups-filters (1.8.3-2ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* Undo cups-filters-lsb and cups-filters-invalid-mta changes, we
will fix this in a more generic way in a post-release update.
2016-03-29 - Till Kamppeter <>
cups-filters (1.8.3-2ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Added Conflicts:/Replaces:/Provides: foomatic-filters-beh to the
cups-filters binary package due to the fact that the beh backend is
now part of cups-filters (LP: #1563686).
2016-03-25 - Till Kamppeter <>
cups-filters (1.8.3-2ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- Added the binary packages cups-filters-lsb and cups-filters-invalid-mta
to temporarily replace the dropped LSB support in Debian/Ubuntu which
we need for distribution-independent printer driver packages. This
will be removed as soon as a new concept for distribution-independent
printer driver packages is in place.
- Added build dependency on python3-all-dev for the cups-filters-lsb
binary package.

* Install the new /usr/share/cups/mime/cupsfilters-ghostscript.convs file
2016-03-24 - Didier Raboud <>
cups-filters (1.8.3-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- cups-browsed: When creating or modifying a local print queue
set the printer-is-shared bit to false in a separate IPP
request as this operation errors on queues directly pointing
to remote CUPS queues with the IPP backend. This way we can
ignore the error and assure that all other settings are
applied (LP: #1560099)
* Refresh debian/copyright to reflect the gstoraster convs file split
2016-02-29 - Didier Raboud <>
cups-filters (1.8.2-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7 without changes needed
* Drop superfluous liblouis-data dependency (Closes: #816304)
2016-02-29 - Sebastien Bacher <>
cups-filters (1.8.2-2ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* No change rebuild with the new poppler soname
