And no, gimp-1.0 did know nothing about resolution.

I don't want to repeat myself, but the fact that the print plug-in
ignores the resolution info is not only a shame, but IMO a bug. Adding the
necessary GUI elements is more or less trivial.

It's ready when it's done. Have a look at
to see how many bugs are still open. Since only few people are actively
working at closing these bugs, it may take some time... Yosh might be
able to tell you if there are any plans for a 1.1.18 release yet.
