Release Notes: Access to the same printer devices by different print queues or print servers is now serialized to avoid problems. Support for CUPS 1.2.x and higher was improved. The administrator can now stop tea4cups with SIGINT. A configurable retry directive in the configuration file gives you more control over what to do when the real CUPS backend fails. The documentation and sample configuration file were improved.
Release Notes: An incompatibility with Python 2.1 was fixed.
Release Notes: A filter can now be defined for each print queue in order to post-process a CUPS filtering chain's output before the print job data is managed by Tea4CUPS. The ability to launch any command in the event that the real CUPS backend fails was added. Several bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Tees no longer exist, and only pre and post hooks remain. Prehooks can now send datas to posthooks through pipes. The IPP request parser was improved. The subprocess management code was almost entirely rewritten to be more efficient and allow additional functionality.
Release Notes: This release now works with old versions of Python (>=2.1). The error handling code was improved. Finally errors in posthooks are now ignored because at that time the job was printed successfully anyway, so there's no reason to stop the print queue.
Release Notes: This release makes the print job's billing code, if present, available from your scripts in the TEABILLING environment variable. The print job's IPP message file, usually of the form /var/spool/cups/c?????, is available in the TEACONTROLFILE environment variable. A simple example showing how to automate deletion of duplicate print jobs is included in the sample configuration file.
Release Notes: The distribution method is now identical to PyKota's. Pre and Post hooks were added. Prehooks can cancel the print job if needed. Posthooks can access to the original CUPS backend's exit code to perform actions based on its value.
