Cannot print with MFP m127fw after upgrading to 3.15.7-1

Description of problem:
After the recent hplip package upgrade to version 3.15.7-1, I've been unable to print from Fedora 22 using my m127fw multifunction printer. It was working perfectly with version 3.15.6-1. Downgrading to that version (using packages from koji) solves the issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install printer (m127fw) using either the HP Device Manager or GNOME's control panel. The printer is correctly detected on the network (wireless connection).
2. Try printing a document (anything, from any application: the driver's test page, a text document, a PDF...) using the newly installed printer.
The printer remains inactive. HP Device Manager and Fedora show queued jobs as "stopped".
The printer produces the expected output.
As I wrote above, the issue can be solved (temporarily) installing the package's previous version. However, GNOME's Software application will always reinstall the latest version at each system update / reboot cycle. Therefore I have to downgrade hplip (and related packages) every time to be able to use my printer.
Your printer requires proprietary plugin to work.
You need to install it with 'hp-plugin -i' - if you spot any problems during installation then it's most likely bug #1249414.

Hi, thanks for your reply. You're right of course, and I should have mentioned it in my original report: this printer requires a plugin, which HP's installer downloads and sets up without any problem. It doesn't make any difference if I install it manually. I haven't noticed anything similar to what is described in the report for bug 1249414. The setup process is actually pretty smooth, just as it was with previous versions; however, for some reason, jobs are queued and then immediately stopped.
Thanks, then there's one known issue (https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1476920) introduced in 3.15.7 which should be fixed with http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=676708 (hplip-3.15.7-2.fc22).
Try it and if it doesn't help please provide more logs per
I can confirm that 3.15.7-2 does indeed fix this issue. I tested it on two different Fedora 22 machines; both can now print without problems.
Thank you for your assistance.
