If, however, your package deals with the CUPS raster image format
somehow, your package will fail to work with 1.1.18-3 or later until it
is rebuilt with the new libs. I have identified three packages as
possibly meeting that test: gs-esp, cupsys-driver-gimpprint, and
foomatic-bin. I maintain gs-esp, and will be dealing with that package
shortly. The other two maintainers are CCed on this message.
I can confirm that it does break cupsys-driver-gimpprint and
foomatic-bin because I missed this message, and my CUPS printing system
quit working on about 16 Apr. These remain broken as of 20 Apr 2003.
I have managed to get printing working under CUPS with a combination of
your new gs-esp package from "unstable" + hpijs + a printer specific PPD
generated from linuxprinting.org for my HP 960C printer. This offers a
temporary "fix" for owners of HP inkjet printers until
cupsys-driver-gimpprint and foomatic-bin are re-built.
