Gimp-Print 4.3.0, released April 27, 2001, is a development release of
this package.

This software includes the Print plug-in for the Gimp, and GhostScript
and CUPS drivers, including Foomatic data.

The Gimp Print plugin requires the Gimp 1.2.

The CUPS driver requires CUPS 1.1.9 or higher.  1.1.14 or above is
highly recommended, as certain translation-related bugs are fixed and
it is possible to print true CMYK.

The Ghostscript driver requires Ghostscript 5.50, 6.51, or any later
GNU Ghostscript release based on 6.51 (e. g. 6.52).

The IJS GhostScript plugin driver requires GNU Ghostscript 6.53 or later
or APFL GhostScript 7.04 or later.

Please read the README file for full instructions on building and
installing this package.


Gimp-Print 4.3.0 contains the following major changes over Gimp-Print
4.2.1:

1) A new dithering algorithm, EvenTone, is supported.  EvenTone
   screening was invented by Raph Levien, and produces noticeably
   superior results particularly for continuous tone images such as
   photographs.  EvenTone dithering produces a slight "waterfall"
   effect which may render it unsuitable for line art and graphics
   using extremely pale tones on some printers.

2) Significant reorganization of the internal interfaces between the
   family drivers, the dither code, and the weave code, to enable an
   arbitrary number of subchannels (rather than just 2 each of CMY and
   1 K).

3) Reorganization of the build system to use automake 1.6 and autoconf
   2.52.
