And if you need a newer CUPS package than that which is available for 
your release, then check backports.org.

(btw, it's not up to the software developers to package their 
software for any given architecture/release, that's strictly upto the 
OS distributor, so if your favorite software isn't available for your 
platform, complain to the OS distributor, not the software 
development group).
