So here's what I see the main things left to do for 4.2 are:
1) Fix the doc makefiles so that VPATH builds work. I broke this last
week; Roger plans to take a look at that this weekend. We also
should decide if we want to release the programmer's manual in all
four formats -- info, pdf, ps, and html. This one's a stopper.
2) The user's manual needs to be updated to reflect 4.2 rather than
4.1.99. This is a stopper; we just need to remember to actually do
3) Andy needs to test that the CUPS PPD files are properly translated
on his system with the LC_ALL change. This one's a potential
4) Determine that the Stylus Color, Stylus Color 1520, and other
very old printers do the right thing with the default resolution
in both color and black & white. Mike, can you test this? This
would represent a regression if it's broken. This one's a
potential stopper also, although nobody's complained, suggesting
that it's not as high priority as I think.
5) Complete the existing translations; Swedish is already complete.
It's unclear if this one's a stopper; this could be updated in a
6) Try to fix the Epson Stylus Pro printers, which apparently don't
actually work very well (no real surprise there). I don't think
that this one's a stopper, much as I'd like to bag these puppies;
they're completely new functionality, and we've already established
that we can release with particular printers not entirely working.
7) Get as much testing as possible on beta 4!
On another note, I finally got my C80 last night, and I've tuned it
reasonably well. 720 DPI looks rather raw on photo paper, although
it's OK on plain paper (variable dot size artifacts). I managed to
improve 1440x720, although it's not as good as 2880x720.
