	• Updated Japanese localization.
	• The lpadmin command did not send the PPD name from the "-m" option (<rdar://problem/15264697>)

	• Added an Italian localization (<rdar://problem/14481578>)
	• Fixed a couple memory leaks in ippfind that were reported by Clang.

	• The ippfind utility reported the wrong port numbers when compiled against Avahi (<rdar://problem/14508324>)

	• The scheduler incorrectly did not pass a FINAL_CONTENT_TYPE environment variable to the filters or backend (<rdar://problem/14355011>)
	• The cups-exec helper program could fail randomly on OS X due to sandbox violations when closing excess file descriptors (<rdar://problem/14421943>)
	• The scheduler incorrectly did not use the kqueue interface on OS X.
