1.150.1. RHBA-2009:1679: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1679
An updated paps package that fixes a word wrap bug associated with paps' use as the CUPS text filter is now available.
Paps reads UTF-8 encoded text files and renders them to a PostScript file. It uses the pango library to create the outline curves. The paps package also includes the libpaps library, which simplifies PostScript rendering for any pango-based applications (for example, programs that use the GTK+ widget toolkit). As well, paps is used as the CUPS text filter, allowing CUPS to handle UTF-8 encoded strings.
This update addresses the following issue:
* when paps was used as the CUPS text filter with a "wrap=false" parameter, paps did not honor the parameter: text was wrapped to fit the page despite the parameter instructing otherwise. Paps now calls pango's word wrap functions correctly and, consequently, honors this parameter as expected. (BZ#520590)
All paps users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolve this issue.
