Description David Walluck 2008-03-19 12:21:45 EDT
There is a gutenprint development 5.1.x series being developed in parallel to
the stable 5.0.x series. The 5.1.x series has support for Canon and Epson
printer models that are not supported by 5.0.x. Is this enough reason to ship
(maybe in parallel) the development series, or is the policy only to ship the
stable releases?
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2008-03-27 07:09:28 EDT
5.1.x releases are not necessarily newer/better than 5.0.x releases.  Robert
Krawitz has said:

"At this point, 5.1 is basically 5.0 plus an improved Postscript driver minus
support for a number of HP inkjets.  5.1 releases are otherwise betas
or release candidates for 5.0 point releases."
