Hi,

all CUPS filters not relevant for Mac OS X are discontinued in the CUPS 
core project at Apple:

http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3930

and overtaken by OpenPrinting:

https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-p-new-cups-filters-package

With these filters I have joined the filters written for the PDF 
printing workflow

https://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/pdfasstandardprintjobformat

to have one upstream location for all CUPS filters needed for using CUPS 
with Linux (and any other non-Mac-OS-X operating system).

This package will be required for use of CUPS 1.6.x or later. For CUPS 
1.5.x and older it is optional and highly recommended to use a PDF-based 
printing workflow (for 1.5.x or older of all filters provided by both 
CUPS and cups-filters the version of cups-filters should be used).

The development of cups-filters is tracked via BZR on

http://bzr.linuxfoundation.org/openprinting/cups-filters

Bugs and feature requests are tracked on 
https://bugs.linuxfoundation.org/, product OpenPrinting, component 
cups-filters.
