        EPSON E 520
        EPSON E 500
        EPSON E 720
        EPSON E 700
        EPSON Stylus D92
        EPSON Stylus DX4400
        EPSON Stylus DX4450
        EPSON Stylus DX7000F
        EPSON Stylus DX7400
        EPSON Stylus DX7450
        EPSON Stylus DX8400
        EPSON Stylus DX8450
        EPSON Stylus Photo R280
        EPSON Stylus Photo R285
        EPSON Stylus Photo RX585
        EPSON Stylus Photo RX680
        EPSON Stylus Photo RX685

        (Note that a number of the PictureMate printers that were
        previously included generated grossly incorrect output.  Not
        all of the PictureMate printers have been fully tuned at this

      * Canon inkjet printers:
        Canon PIXMA MP520 (#1872394)
        Canon PIXMA iP6000D

   2) Printing for the Canon PIXMA iP4500 has been fixed (#1834153).

   3) Printing near the bottom of the page has been improved for many
      modern Epson inkjet printers.  In addition, we have determined
      that most of these printers can print with consistent high
      quality at 2880x2880 and 5760x2880 DPI.  Therefore, these
      resolutions will be used for Ultra Photo and Best qualities
      respectively on these printers.

      Printers affected include:

      * Stylus Photo R800, R1800, PM-G820

      * Stylus Photo R2400

      * All printers using Claria ink

   4) Full bleed printing now works properly on the Epson Stylus Photo

   5) The Epson Stylus C120 now allows printing at 2880x2880 and
      5760x2880.  However, print quality near the bottom of the page
      may be poor, and these settings are therefore not used for Ultra
      Photo and Best quality.

   5) The ink drop sizes on the Epson Stylus Photo printers using
      Claria ink have been retuned, yielding improved quality at lower

   6) A problem with determining the system printer queues in the GIMP
      plugin on certain systems using languages other than English has
      been fixed.

   7) Envelope paper sizes are now offered in both portrait and
      landscape form factor, as some printers expect envelopes to be
      fed long edge first while some expect them to be fed short edge

   8) PCL laser printers now offer paper trays with adjustable guides.
      Many laser printers use adjustable guides for manual feed of
      papers narrower than letter size.

   9) The GIMP plugin now offers reset buttons for individual
      settings, so it is possible to reset a single setting to its
      default without resetting all settings.

   9) Various new controls and settings have been added to assist in
      printer calibration.  While the tools for using these controls
      are not yet created, these tools will assist in calibrating
      printers in the future.

      * The Epson driver now offers additional controls for adjusting
        the relationship between light and dark ink:

        + The Value parameters (such as Light Cyan Value) specify the
          relative darkness of the light vs. dark inks.

        + The Cutoff parameters now specify the point at which the
          darker ink is first used, relative to the value of the light

        + The Scale parameters now specify the amount of light ink
          used (essentially the density of the light ink).  This is
          the same as the parameters previously called Cutoff.

      * The Epson driver now exposes as defaults the actual GCR
        settings used for the printer, paper, and ink combination in

      * The Epson driver now allows passing low level settings such as
        printer base resolution, ink drop size selection, and relative
        ink drop size as parameters.  The ink drop size can be
        accessed in the GIMP plugin, while the base resolution and ink
        drop size selection can only be used via the test pattern
        generator or other application that allows setting integer

      * Two new dither algorithms, Segmented and Segmented New, have
        been added.  These are not intended for normal use, and will
        normally behave like Ordered and Ordered New.  However, if Raw
        color correction is selected and a printer with multiple drop
        sizes is used, the range of input will be divided up such that
        the high order bits will select the drop size to be used and
        the lower bits will specify the amount of ink.  High order
        bits of 0 indicate that all drop sizes should be used.

        For example, if a printer offers 3 drop sizes (2 bits), the
        range of 0-16383 will print all drop sizes normally (with the
        range of 0-16383 being scaled to 0-65535), 16384-32767 will
        use the small drop size, and so forth.

        This is intended to assist in tuning ink drop sizes.

      * A new parameter allowing dumping out of color correction state
        (lookup tables, GCR data, curves, etc.) has been added, and is
        accessible in the GIMP plugin.  At present, this data cannot
        be used directly, but it is intended that in the future this
        mechanism be used to allow calibration information to be saved
        and restored.
