Another UPDATE: I have released cups-filters 1.22.5 now, due to an 
incompatibility of foomatic-rip with the new Ghostscript 9.27.



1.22.5: Bug fix release, to make foomatic-rip working with Ghostscript 
9.27 and later.

1.22.4: Bug fix release, to fix various bugs in cups-browsed and in the 


	- foomatic-rip: Changed Ghostscript call to count pages in a
	  PDF file to use "runpdfbegin" and not the undocumented
	  Ghostscript internal "pdfdict", so that it works with
	  Ghostscript 9.27 and later (Debian bug #926576, Arch Linux
	  bug #62251).


	- cups-browsed: Fix broken trailing space removal on
	  "NickName" (Pull request #103).
	- pdftops: Emit PostScript Level 2 instead of Level 3 for
	  Brother PostScript printers as at least some of them
	  report to support level 3 but ontly work with Level 2
	  (Ubuntu bug #1306849, comment #42).
	- bannertopdf: When multiplying the page for N-up or Duplex
	  printing one page too much was generated (Issue #102).
