No changes from 3.0. Needed to bump version number to rectify issues with RPM upgrades from 3.0RCx
Repackaged into a traditional tar & make format. Documentation converted to docbook and translated to text and html.
Added test for blank sharename in the Add Printer routine. This can occur if the user specifies "Do not share" or if the windows workstation is not configued to share resources.
Add support for sharenames with embedded spaces. Added escaped quotes to the command line in configure-<sharename>.cmd.
Ease of use enhancement plus additional LDAP support. Have to resist the urge to make enhancements. This needs to go to final release!
New feature: A command (batch) file containing the commands necessary to configure a newly added printer is now placed in the print$ share during the “Add Printer” process.
Now uses ConfigParser to deal with smb.conf (was able to shim an incompatibility by subclassing file() and overriding the readline() method - python is very cool!)
Primarily packaging changes. Planning to submit to Sourceforge, so the legal stuff needs to be attended to. Also fixed a late-reported bug and made a minor functionality change.
Update GPL Notice
Subject line for batch jobs now reads “PDF Files”. It used to include a list of files, which could be too long and was reported to be confusing.
Clean up jobnames submitted via the --jobname switch. Windows can come up with some pretty ugly jobnames.
Rev version number - Due to the Python rewrite, this should have been a major rev from the start.
Complete rewrite in Python.
Improved batch printing capability
Add LDAP lookup capability
Create configuration script
Package as RPM.
Based on Fedora Core 2 – need to test on other Linux flavors.
