    Phoronix: CUPS 1.4.0 Printing Server Brings New Interface

    On the same day as the release of the Mac OS X 10.6 operating system, which contains many printing improvements among its new feature set, the Apple-owned CUPS project has come out with version 1.4.0. CUPS 1.4 offers improvements to its web interface (including a brand new look), CUPS DDK tools, Bonjour printing support, many scheduler improvements, and over 67 other changes. The CUPS 1.4.0 release announcement can be read at CUPS.org...

    Finally a new look

    Finally a new look. Ever since Apple bought CUPS, I wondered why the project web site still looked like ass despite tons of skilled designers at Apple.

    Except the new looks, my personal favourite change in 1.4 is:
    61. PDF filter; the pdftops filter has been replaced with a wrapper program that runs the Xpdf, poppler, or Ghostscript PDF to PostScript utilities.

    This reduces unnecessary code duplication between projects and especially poppler is developing nicely anyway.

        The basic style of the new web interface is just like their website www.cups.org

          Looks fine to me. I always wondered why they didn't changed it to something more modern .
