This is gimp-print version 4.1.6, a development release on the 4.1 line.

This software includes the Print plug-in for the Gimp, and GhostScript
and CUPS drivers.  The support for printers in GhostScript and CUPS is
identical to the support for these printers in the Print plugin --
they use the identical code base.  Please read src/ghost/README and
src/cups/README for more information on this.

The Gimp Print plugin requires the Gimp 1.2.

Gimp-Print 4.1.6 contains the following changes over 4.1.6:

1) As of this release, the Gimp 1.0 is no longer supported.  You must
   use at least 1.1.21; 1.2 is strongly recommended.  In particular,
   we will not fix bugs in the Gimp plugin unless they can be
   reproduced with the Gimp 1.2.

2) Foomatic is now supported in the 4.1 line.  Please read the README
   for more information.  This requires a relatively recent version of
   Foomatic and is not compatible with the version bundled with
   Gimp-Print 4.0.

3) Significant improvements to the Canon driver for many printers,
   most notably the BJC-8200.  There may be some temporary new
   problems with 4-color printing on some Canon printers; feedback on
   this would be greatly appreciated.

4) Significant improvements to the Lexmark driver.

5) Further improvements to the Stylus Color 980.

6) Support for printing 720x360 DPI on many Epson Stylus printers.
   This mode offers a speed/quality tradeoff intermediate between 360
   and 720 DPI.  It does not work very well on photo-quality paper.

7) Improvements in the Fast dithering option on plain paper.

8) Some improvements to the Epson Stylus Photo 870/1270 and newer
   6-color printers.

9) Internal architectural changes: the library now operates internally
   in CMY rather than RGB space, and offers a raw CMYK input mode.
   The former is not visible outside of the library; the latter has no
   current uses and is untested.  Neither change should have any
   user-visible effects; this is strictly for programmer use.
