HPLIP 2.8.2

Release Notes: HPLIP 2.8.2 - This release has the following changes: 1. Corrected the IPP printer-state error messages in hp.c as requested by Tim Waugh. 2. Fixed printmode mismatch warning for mono lasers. 3. Fixed segmentation fault resulting from buffer overflow in compression.cpp 4. HPIJS PPD files are now created with the CUPS DDK instead of the foomatic database. Dynamic PPD files are now supported via the hpijs.drv file. See the technical documentation for more information about drv support. 5. Added foomatic-rip-hplip support. Foomatic-rip-hplip is for distros that do not have the latest foomatic-rip which is required for drv support. 6. Added a new configure option for foomatic-rip-hplip. The following configure options are valid for the different types of PPD installs. static ppd install with foomatic-rip-hplip --enable-foomatic-ppd-install [enable foomatic static ppd install, uses hpppdir] --with-hpppddir [destination for *-hpijs.ppd, *-ps.ppd and HP-Fax-hplip.ppd] --enable-foomatic-rip-hplip-install dynamic ppd install with foomatic-rip-hplip --enable-foomatic-drv-install [enable foomatic dynamic ppd install, uses drvdir and hpppddir] --with-drvdir [destination for *.drv] --with-hpppddir [destination for *-ps.ppd and HP-Fax-hplip.ppd] --enable-foomatic-rip-hplip-install dynamic ppd install with foomatic-rip --enable-foomatic-drv-install [enable foomatic dynamic ppd install, uses drvdir and hpppddir] --with-drvdir [destination for *.drv] --with-hpppddir [destination for *-ps.ppd and HP-Fax-hplip.ppd] --disable-foomatic-rip-hplip-install 7.
