Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-26 15:40:09 EDT
Since rc2 contains LPRng-3.6.22 and the recently announce 3.6.24 fixes some
bug, I am putting this into bugzilla -- you may have updated already but,
"just in case".

Here is the announcement from the LPRng mailing list:

LPRng: LPRng-3.6.24 available
From: papowell@astart.com
To: lprng@lprng.com
Date: Sat, 19 Aug 2000 14:28:24 -0700 (PDT)

This release solves a couple of problems caused by the addition
of the LPQ status caching.  If you are using LPRng 3.6.22 or
LPRng 3.6.23 please upgrade to this release.

Also added support for parallel port printers,  but it appears
that it is mostly useless unless you use the ifhp filter.

Release LPRng 3.6.24 - Fri Aug 11 08:03:23 PDT 2000
 LPRng-HOWTO - added update for Samba print queue configuration.
 LPRng-HOWTO - added section on how to configure Solaris lp printing
  to communicate with LPRng.

 Typo in gethostinfo.c spotted.

 And I removed the wrong line so that the data files were not being
  deleted when a job was completed.  Helps to read the control file and
  get the data file names...
  (Pointed out by: Thomas Emmel <emmel@mechanik.tu-darmstadt.de>)
 There was a 'cut and pasteo' that caused me to use the wrong value
  to get trim lpq status.
  (Core dump and clues supplied by: John Perkins <john@cs.wisc.edu>)
 LPRng HOWTO - added small section on setting up Solaris lp queues to
  forward jobs to LPRng/BSD printers.
 IPV6 Support fixed up a bit to actually work...
  (Spotted during testing,  now that we actually have IPV6 working
  on our router.)
 Added a 'flush cached status' when a spool server exits.  Now you
  get the correct status when there is no active server.
 Modified the 'Read_write_timeout' code to be consistent with reading
  status from parallel port printers the way that the ifhp filter
  does it.
 Found a minor sillyness in the 'send_to_logger()' code - I carefully
  format data and then toss it way.  Now I do checks first.
 Fixed up lpq status generation - only read a small part of the status
  file for information
