Hi there, 

I'm very pleased to announce the immediate availability of Tea4CUPS
v3.10 from :


Tea4CUPS's basic functionnality to the *nix 'tee' command, but
available as a 100% plug and play generic CUPS backend wrapper.

But Tea4CUPS is much more than that !

Tea4CUPS is the Swiss Army's knife of the advanced CUPS administrator,
and can easily replace or extend most of the existing specialized
CUPS backends (pdf, email, ftp, etc...)

You are greatly encouraged to use this software instead of writing your
own CUPS backends : Tea4CUPS will let you plug your own scripts, filters,
tools or commands wherever you want, wile giving them access to all of 
the print job's characteristics in a consitent way.

Tea4CUPS is a 100% Python written standalone script distributed
under the terms of the GNU General Public License of the Free
Software Foundation.

Tea4CUPS is available free of charge for all through the use of
subversion (svn), through a 20 Euros yearly subscription to Official
packages, or through a 9.99 US$ one time purchase.

This new release features :

  - A filter can now be defined for each print queue, in order to
    post-process the output of CUPS' filtering chain before the
    print job's datas are managed by Tea4CUPS.
  - Any command of your choice can now be launched when the real  
    CUPS backend fails.
  - Several bugs were fixed, including a show-stopper one which
    crippled the previous release under particular circumstances.

Hoping you'll enjoy this release.

Thank you for reading.
