GNUlpr version 1.0 is a complete printing system based on LPR, and provides support for printer-specific options, GUI tools, and autoconfiguration. The 1.1 tree is a completely re-thought printing system. Rather than creating an all-powerful spooling daemon, it constructs a pipeline of "filter" programs to perform tasks (spooling, data stream type conversion, authentication, network protocols, etc.).

Release Notes: A few compilation errors on some distros were fixed.
Release Notes: A whole bunch of bugs in lpd, sendlpr and qmgr were fixed so that you can now print a single document job to a local or remote LPR printer. A check was added to the configure script so that it fails if tdb is not installed.
Release Notes: This is the first release of the full gnulpr package. There have been a few bugfixes and quite a few build system cleanups that were needed to make this release actually build as one unit.
Release Notes: This release has new catagories in gpr, lots of bugfixes, internationalized PPD files, and a libprintsys version of print filters.
Release Notes: This release includes parallel port and network autodetection of printers, X-based configuration and job submission utilities, and support for device-specific features of printers that are described by PPD files.
