Gimp-Print 4.2.2-pre1, released May 11, 2002, is a prerelease in
the Gimp-Print 4.2 line.

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 GNU Ghostscript 5.10, 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 4.2.2-pre1 contains the following major changes over
Gimp-Print 4.2.1:

  1) A new dither algorithm, EvenTone, has been added.  This algorithm
     produces superior results for photographs and other
     continuous-tone images, but in its current form it may not be as
     well suited for solid color images and line art.  This algorithm
     should be considered beta.

  2) The default optimization level with gcc is now -O2 rather than
     -O.  This improves performance somewhat.

  3) Spanish and Portuguese translations have been added.
