I see in the Fedora-19 release notes that CUPS will be upgraded to 1.6. The page on
says this involves using pdf rather than postscript as the baseline document format.
While wrestling to get printing working on my system this past spring, the printer's
manufacturer (Xerox) told me that my printer was "GDI" based. I don't
really know how printers and their drivers work, but I'm guessing that the Linux
drivers for this printer are converting psotscript out by LibreOffice, the Linux print
command, the browser, etc. to GDI, and sending that GDI to the printer.
My question: Will the coming CUPS upgrade break printing on my system? or has this been
properly accounted for in CUPS 1.6?
