Avahi support for CUPS 1.5.0

The Avahi support for CUPS has been ported to 1.5.0 now.  I’ve updated the git repository (tracking upstream CUPS, as well as having feature branches for Avahi):

Fedora packages for F-16 and rawhide have been built.

    Could you elaborate on what the avahi support in CUPS is exactly? I’m finding very little information online and everytime I want to advertise a printer, I setup avahi & CUPS as 2 separate entities. Is there some automation in CUPS to add printers in avahi?

      Currently the Avahi support is that cupsd will advertise its queues to the network; and when manually adding a queue the dnssd backend will search for DNS-SD queues on the network.
