Michael, thanks for the announcement.

Now everyone can test the new PAPPL features on the Ghostscript Printer 
Applications and the PostScript Printer Application.

They are rebuilding now in the Snap Store, using the newest PAPPL as 
announced here and will be ready in 30 min to 1 hour depending on 
architecture (amd64 is fastest).

Then they can get grabbed from the Snap Store and the new functionality 
of PAPPL can be tested. Anyone who already has one or another of these 
Printer Applications installed as Snap will get an automatic updated.
