CUPS Cloud Print RPM and Arch repositories now support SSL

Just a quick post – previously the package repositories used for CUPS Cloud Print didn’t have SSL enabled ( the packages have been signed for a while, but this is some extra security which I feel is useful to add ), but I’ve now purchased an SSL certificate and enabled it on the niftyrepo.niftiestsoftware.com domain – if you currently have the CUPS Cloud Print RPM or Arch repo ( other repositories already have encrypted transport so need no changes ) installed I’d recommend updating it to use the new SSL URLs ( it’s just the same as the existing ones, but with https instead of http ).

The CUPS Cloud Print installation instructions have been updated with the new URLs.

CUPS Cloud Print July Release – Refactored code, many bug fixes, Mac OS X package

There hasn’t been a new release of CUPS Cloud Print in while, and as a lot of bugfixes and changes have been made I’ve decided it’s about time to release a new version.

Over the past few months there has been a lot of work bugfixing, tidying and refactoring the code ( massive thanks goes to Jacob Marble at Google for help with this ) to increase the performance and generally make the software more maintainable and usable.

The new release is currently rolling out to the repositories, and should be available to install shortly.

As always, if you encounter any issues, please post an issue on Github.

CUPS Cloud Print Second March Release – older CUPS bugfix

I discovered shortly after releasing the March release that distros running older versions of CUPS or PyCUPS ( CentOS 6 and Ubuntu 10.04 were the ones I noticed ) had an issue with the longer printer URIs that are now used in the 20140307 release onwards. To fix this, I’ve released a new version ( 20140308 ) which uses only the account and printer ids in the URI that CUPS uses.

CUPS Cloud Print March Release – more bugfixes

The March release of CUPS Cloud Print is currently rolling out to the repositories, and has yet more bugfixes.

The main bug fixed this month was an issue regarding having multiple printers in the same Google Cloud Print account with the same name, this should now work correctly ( previously having two printers with the same name in the same account caused CUPS Cloud Print to pick one printer and ignore the other ). Printing from Adobe Reader should also now work correctly.
