Version: 2:2.0~rc1-0ubuntu1.1 2023-06-15 21:07:52 UTC

  libppd (2:2.0~rc1-0ubuntu1.1) lunar; urgency=medium

  * fix-mirrored-printout-when-ppd-has-mirrorprint-option.patch: When
    converting PPDs with “MirrorPrint” option into IPP attributes, setting
    of the option (“True”/“False”) was not considered, making printouts
    always come out mirrored (LP: #2018538).
  * fix-resolution-handling-on-ppd-to-ipp-attr-conversion.patch: For
    PPDs for driverless printers which take jobs in Apple/PWG Raster
    format always the lowest supported resolution got selected, regardless
    of the PPD default or job option settings (LP: #2022929).
  * ppdfilterpstops-fix-printers-with-reverse-output-order.patch:
    Printouts to PostScript printers (or printers with drivers which need
    PostScript input) which drop the pages face-up and therefore need to
    print in reverse order came out empty (Upstream issue #20,
    LP: #2022943).
