  • foomatic-rip: Fixed segmentation fault when running foomatic-rip by hand and the PRINTER environment variable is not set
  • cups-browsed: Added note to cups-browsed.conf and man page about IP-based URIs depending on the network interface used.
  • cups-browsed: For each DNS-SD-discovered printer register each DNS-SD discovery instance with network interface, family, and IPP type. When DNS-SD messages of instances disappearing show up, only unregister this instance and remove the printer only if no instance is left. This prevents a local queue of a still available printer being removed when Wi-Fi (= one interface) is turned off
  • cups-browsed: If a remote printer is served from the local machine, prefer the "localhost"/loopback interface URI.
  • cups-browsed: If a remote printer is discovered more than once, use the new instance only if it has no downgrades and at least one upgrade compared to the old one. Features currently compared are IPP/IPPS, loopback interface or not, and discovery via CUPS legacy/LDAP/DNS-SD.
  • cups-browsed: If an Avahi-discovered entry comes through the "lo" interface, always use the host name "localhost". Use IP addresses instead of host names only if explicitly requested.
  • cups-browsed: Consider remote printer entries also as from the same printer if one has the local machine's network name and the other "localhost" as host name
