2018-03-29 - Till Kamppeter <>
cups (2.2.7-1ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
* Reverted the upstrem changes for deprecation of raw queues
- This changes the behavior of CUPS (warnings, error_log entries) and
is not a bug fix, so not adequate for Bionic in this stage.
- It breaks the autopkgtest of the CUPS package.

required a restart (Issue #5263. Closes: #861470)
- The scheduler could crash while adding an IPP Everywhere printer (Issue

- The `lp` and `lpr` commands now provide better error messages when the
default printer cannot be found (Issue #5096, Closes: #870463)
* Add cupsHashString@Base 2.2.7 symbol
