Significant Changes

    * Add Designjet support for selected Designjet printers
    * Added PolicyKit support - command line tools like hp-setup, hp-plugin, etc. are now run as a regular user, not root/superuser
    * Added GPG digital signature support to the the HPLIP plug-in. This feature validates that the plug-in is not corrupted and is authentic prior to installation.
    * Added native CUPS driver support (hpcups). Currently this support should be used for testing only.
    * A lot of bugs fixed

Added Support for the Following New Printers:

    * HP LaserJet p1009 Printer (LJP1XXX) (REQURIES plug-in)
    * HP Designjet 4020ps (Postscript)
    * HP Designjet 4520ps (Postscript)
    * HP Designjet 4520mfp (Postscript) (Note: PC send fax not supported in this release)
    * HP Officejet 6500 All-in-one Printer - e709a (DJGenericVIP)

Changing version to '11'.

Current is actually HPLIP 3.9.6


Significant Changes

* The new native CUPS driver (HPCUPS) is now the default printer driver. HPCUPS requires CUPS 1.2 or higher and is a complete replacement for HPIJS. For now HPIJS is still included in the tarball and if necessary can co-exist with HPCUPS. HPCUPS provides new paper sizes for borderless and duplex. This means we now have PPDs with exact printable regions for normal, borderless and duplex paper sizes.

* A new utility 'hp-wificonfig' allows you to configure select wifi-capable printers on a wireless network. Once configured, the printer may be installed normally using hp-setup (there is also a way to access hp-wificonfig directly from hp-setup).
