A collection of security fixes, bug fixes, and functionality updates, including the Omni print drivers from IBM.
This update addresses the following issues: A printing security hole, whereby non-local users could print the contents of any file on the system which the 'lp' user was capable of reading. This was solved by giving Ghostscript a 'PARANOIDSAFER' mode, which will not open external files. A foomatic printing database bug, which caused all users of the 'stp' driver, including virtually all Epson printers, to fail to print as a result of miscalculated driver data. A filtration problem, which caused many PCL and PJL printers to produce garbage. This was solved by switching to the foomatic distributed 'lpdomatic' program for filtration. A few printconf crashers in the new printconf-tui programme. And in addition, this update adds the Omni print drivers from IBM, which support an additional 300 printers.
