HP Linux Imaging & Printing System (HPLIP) 3.9.6 Release

**HPLIP 3.9.6 - This release has the following changes:**

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).... read more

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (HPLIP) 2.8.4 Release

Release Notes

HPLIP 2.8.4 - This release has the following changes:
Significant Changes

1. dbus communication support. All interprocess communication now occurs using the dbus message bus. python-dbus version 0.80 or greater is required.

When no HPLIP tools are running (e.g., hp-toolbox), and the user closes or disables hp-systray, there will be no HPLIP processes running whatsoever. Consequently, there is no longer an /etc/init.d/hplip startup script, and no processes need be run at system startup time.... read more
