22PyKota NEWS :
23
24    - 1.21alpha15 :
25     
26        - Normalized field names between LDAP and PostgreSQL backends
27          in dumpykota's output.
28         
29        - dumpykota filtering capabilities are now supported within
30          the LDAP backend too.
31         
32    - 1.21alpha14 :
33   
34        - dumpykota now supports extended filtering possibilities
35          with the PostgreSQL backend (LDAP support will come soon).
36         
37    - 1.21alpha13 :
38   
39        - Added a --debug command line option to pkpgcounter, so
40          that people may see what really happens, and what will
41          be available in the future :-)
42         
43    - 1.21alpha12 :
44   
45        - Fixed a bug with non standard pkbanner command lines.
46       
47        - Now logs as errors the differences between precomputed and
48          computed job sizes. **CUPS only for now**
49         
50    - 1.21alpha11 :
51   
52        - Now user and group print quota entries can be stored directly
53          below the user or group with the LDAP backend, using them
54          as branches. Thanks to Stefan Wold for the patch.
55          See the sample configuration file for details.
56         
57        - TLS is now supported with the LDAP backend. Thanks to Stefan
58          Wold for the patch.
59          See the sample configuration file for details.
60         
61        - edpkota now accepts the -U | --used value command line argument
62          to preset the page counters to an initial value. Thanks to
63          Wilson Roberto Afonso and Matt Hyclak for the patch.
64         
65    - 1.21alpha10 :
66   
67        - Now automatically reconnects up to three times if the LDAP server
68          returned an error, possibly due to a timeout.
69         
70    - 1.21alpha9 :
71   
72        - Now searches the configuration files in 'pykota' system user's
73          home directory. The 'pykota' system user and group have
74          to be created by the system administrator, and given
75          sufficient permissions to PyKota's configuration files.
76         
77    - 1.21alpha8 :
78

107    - 1.21alpha3 :
108   
109        - PyKota can now generate its own banners, and either account
110          for them or not, depending on newly introduced directives
111          in pykota.conf
112          Thanks to Matt Hyclak for the patch.
113         
114    - 1.21alpha2 :

121   
122        - added an IPP messages miniparser. Extraction of the client
123          hostname is now considered to be fiable, at least until
124          the CUPS developpers change something...
125       
126    - 1.20 :
127   
128        - Version number changed.
129

133       
134        - German translation was finalized.
135       
136        - Greek translation was finalized.
137       
138        - For urgent legal reasons, a "privacy" directive has been added

140          in the history.
141         
142        - Minor changes in the debian directory.
143       
144    - 1.20alpha27 :
145   
146        - Fixed many problems with translation files. In particular
147          the brasilian portuguese translation file was incorrectly
148          installed into the french "breton" locale directory.
149         
150        - Finished French translation. 
151         
152    - 1.20alpha26 :
153

158       
159        - Fix for incorrect locale setting when starting.
160       
161    - 1.20alpha25 :
162   
163        - pkprinters allows --list to normal users, but require user
164          to be a PyKota administrator when another command line
165          option is used.
166         
167        - pkhint doesn't use absolute path to search for helper commands
168          anymore.
169         
170        - Spanish translation ready for 1.20.   
171       
172    - 1.20alpha24 :
173   
174        - Now warnpykota only warns users limited by balance once.
175       
176        - Now warnpykota only warns users who have ever printed,
177          to not cause confusion to users who have just opened
178          their account.
179       
180        - Prepared help messages for translations.
181       
182    - 1.20alpha23 :
183   
184        - Add workaround for locale problem.

194    - 1.20alpha21 :
195   
196        - Now dumpykota refuses to launch if the current user is not
197          a PyKota administrator (a PyKota administrator is an user
198          allowed to read the pykotadmin.conf file).
199         
200        - Now any PyKota administrator can use repykota and warnpykota
201          with additionnal arguments, not only the root user.
202         
203        - Improved documentation a bit.
204       
205    - 1.20alpha20 :
206

219          hexadecimal digest in the PYKOTAMD5SUM environment variable.
220         
221        - The description, filename, title, and options fields
222          are now stored as UTF-8 strings in both LDAP and PostgreSQL.
223          Proper charset is used during extraction from the database.
224         
225    - 1.20alpha18 :
226   
227        - Experimental autopykota command to initialize user
228          account and quota entries on first print while not
229          resetting the balance value if not needed.
230         
231        - Added the new "winbind_separator" directive to strip
232          out the Samba/Winbind domain name while printing if
233          needed (Off by default).
234         
235    - 1.20alpha17 :

244        - Internal handling of socket based PJL queries over
245          port tcp/9100 is now available with the magic
246          'pjl' value in the hardware accounter.
247         
248    - 1.20alpha15 :
249   
250        - LDAP pykotaAccountBalance objects were always created
251          attached to the pykotaUser objects. This is now
252          fixed and the value of balancebase in pykota.conf
253          is now correctly used.
254         
255    - 1.20alpha14 :
256   
257        - Belgian translations added (copy of the french ones).
258       
259        - External hardware accounter now loops until
260          a result can be read correctly.
261         
262        - pkhint now suggest the internal snmp handling instead
263          of the external one.
264         
265    - 1.20alpha13 :
266     
267        - Hardware accounter now accepts the special
268          'snmp' value, meaning ALL is done from main code
269          without launching any subprocess.
270          You need the http://pysnmp.sf.net Python module
271          for this to work (tested with v3.4.2)
272         
273        - Increased delay between two loops iterations 
274          to 2 seconds in waitprinter.sh to diminish
275          CPU load.
276         
277    - 1.20alpha12 :
278   
279        - waitprinter.sh rewritten from scratch to wait
280          for printer status stabilization.
281       
282    - 1.20alpha11 :
283   
284        - Generic data dumper 'dumpykota' introduced.
285          Works only with PostgreSQL backend for now.
286         
287    - 1.20alpha10 :
288   
289        - Added fix for incorrect job's size computation when
290          hardware accounting fails.
291         
292    - 1.20alpha9 :
293   
294        - Small fixes wrt subprocesses.
295       
296    - 1.20alpha8 :
297   
298        - Added full support of PCL3 : HP Deskjet printers are now
299          supported.
300       
301    - 1.20alpha7 :
302   
303        - First draft of PCL3GUI (Deskjet 640C for example) analyzer.
304          Needs more work, but no documentation is available.
305       
306    - 1.20alpha6 :
307     
308        - Improved mailandpopup.sh script.
309       
310        - Small fixes for LPRng.
311       
312        - Now exports PYKOTAPRINTERHOSTNAME for network printers'
313          hostname or IP address. Set to 'localhost' when not
314          meaningful.
315         
316        - Fixed issue with how mod_auth_ldap Apache modules
317          fills the REMOTE_USER environment variable.
318         
319        - Fixed a bug in LDAP user deletion code.
320       
321    - 1.20alpha5 :
322     
323        - Introduces the new configuration directive 'onaccountererror'
324          to specify what must be done whenever the software or
325          hardware accounter fails. Allowed values are 'continue' and
326          'stop' (default).
327         
328        - Minor fix in software accounter for a recently introduced
329          problem.
330         
331    - 1.20alpha4 :
332   
333        - Added support for more ghostscript devices in ESC/P2
334          analyzer : stcolor, st800, escp, escpc are now supported.
335         
336    - 1.20alpha3 :
337       
338        - Small improvement in PostScript parser to avoid being
339          fooled by a change in number of copies :
340          The user can't ask for 200 copies of page 1 and 1 copy
341          of page 2 to fool PyKota anymore :
342          this would have been accounted for as 1 copy only, but
343          now the maximum value seen is used.
344         
345        - Relax checks for PCL5 header to accomodate some strange
346          printer drivers.
347         
348        - Now hardware accounting method works like software
349          accounting method wrt the subprocess' output.
350         
351        - Hardware and Software accounting stop the print queue 
352          when the accounting subprocess didn't work. This will
353          be configurable in the near future.
354         
355    - 1.20alpha2 :
356   
357        - Now software accounting method reads accounter's
358          answer until a line with a single integer is
359          obtained or until all of its output has been read.
360          This should fix the problem some people have
361          when strange locale related messages are sent
362          when running subprocesses (Solaris only ?).
363         
364        - First version of ESC/P2 analyzer. Seems to work
365          ok at least with 'epson', 'epsonc', 'eps9mid'
366          and 'esp9high' ghostscript devices. Needs more
367          work to correctly analyze other devices.
368       
369    - 1.20alpha1 :
370   
371        - Fixed problem with number of copies in PCLXL parser.
372       
373        - Fixed problem with number of copies in PCL5 parser,
374          when number of copies was set outside of and before first
375          page.
376       
377        - Added workaround for number of copies directly set in
378          PostScript code.
379         
380        - Added german translation.
381       
382        - Fixed problem on first print for user group quota when
383          "enforcement: strict" is used.
384       
385        - Fixed interpolation problem in french translation.
386       
387    - 1.19 :
388   
389        - Updated existing translations.   
390       
391        - Added final Thai and Greek translations.
392       
393        - Minor last minute bug fixes.
394       
395    - 1.19beta :
396   
397        - LPRng support for both software and hardware accounting seems
398          to be OK.
399         
400        - Translation files fixed because of fuzzy matching problem. 
401       
402        - Fixed path to Swedish translation: 'sv' instead of 'se'.
403       
404        - Added first draft of Thai translation.
405       
406        - Fixed some minor bugs with Pychecker.
407       
408    - 1.19alpha35 :
409   
410        - Generic PDL analyzer now supports Binary PostScript documents
411          in addition to DSC compliant ones.
412       
413    - 1.19alpha34 :
414   
415        - LPRng support : software accounting seems to work fine,
416          but hardware accounting doesn't work yet.
417   
418    - 1.19alpha33 :
419   
420        - pykosd now accepts command line arguments. Enjoy !
421          NB : due to a bug in xosd, you need xosd version 2.2.8
422          or higher if you don't use the default C locale.
423         
424    - 1.19alpha32 :
425   
426        - Early (not working) version of the LPRng support rewrite.
427       
428        - Saner default configuration file.
429       
430    - 1.19alpha31 :
431   
432        - Fixed a double Python2.1 incompatibility with newer versions,
433          which prevented the PCL5 and the PCLXL parsers to work with
434          this older version of Python.
435         
436    - 1.19alpha30 :
437   
438        - Introduction of preliminary version of the pykosd command
439       
440        - Usernames, Groupnames and Printernames can now contain
441          ANY character, expected '/' and '@'.
442       
443        - Integrated most of the Debian work from Sergio
444          Gonz�z Gonz�z
445         
446    - 1.19alpha29 :
447   
448        - PCLXL parser should now correctly handle number of
449          copies set for each page.
450         
451        - Added testsuite for generic PDL analyzer.
452       
453        - Typo fixed in PCLXL parser.
454       
455        - Correctly dispatches error messages depending on the
456          situation : tools which can be run interactively will
457          ALWAYS output their logs to stderr, excepted for
458          their DEBUG messages, for which the "logger:"
459          directive as set in pykota.conf will be honored.
460          Tools which can't be run interactively will ALWAYS
461          honor the "logger:" directive as set in pykota.conf
462         
463    - 1.19alpha28 :
464   
465        - The description field for printers can now be set,
466          and is displayed in reports.
467         
468        - Fixed a small problem in SQL backend code.
469         
470        - Improved pkhint
471       
472        - First working PCL6 (aka PCLXL) parser !
473          Doesn't handle copies yet.
474       
475    - 1.19alpha27 :
476   
477        - Additionnal 10% speed increase in PCL5 parser for GhostScript
478          generated files (untested yet with other PCL files).
479         
480        - Reintroduced the use of mmap in PCL5 parser : this speedups
481          PCL5 parsing by almost 4 times.
482          This 4x with the 3x below give us in fact a twelvefold increase
483          in performance for PCL5 parsing !
484         
485        - The Python accelerator Psyco is now used if available
486          in the generic PDL parser : it speedups PCL5 parsing by
487          almost three times automagically.
488         
489    - 1.19alpha26 :
490   
491        - Fixed PCL5 parser according to the sources of rastertohp.
492       
493        - Fixed number of copies handling in PCL5 parser : the number
494          of copies could vary from page to page.
495         
496        - Added more debug information to PCLXL parser. 
497       
498    - 1.19alpha25 :
499   
500        - Added new "description" field to printers in both
501          PostgreSQL and LDAP. No code to handle this yet.
502         
503        - Reversed the fix for power save mode in printers : 
504          no paper or tray open would have caused people to
505          be undercharged.
506         
507        - Preliminary version of MySQL initialization script.
508         
509    - 1.19alpha24 :
510   
511        - Native PDF parsing code now works perfectly with
512          Python 2.1 and above, and is way faster than before.
513          GhostScript is not used anymore to convert PDF to PS,
514          because PDF is parsed directly.
515         
516    - 1.19alpha23 :
517   
518        - Fixed waitprinter.sh wrt PowerSave mode and some
519          printers. Thanks to Ryan Suarez.
520       
521        - Smart PDL analyzer now recognizes PDF too : two
522          PDF parsing methods are used : a native one which
523          is very fast but requires Python 2.3 or above, and
524          a slower one which uses Ghostscript. PyKota detects
525          automatically which method to use depending on your
526          version of Python.
527       
528        - All tracebacks now include PyKota's version number.
529         
530    - 1.19alpha22 :
531   
532        - Ensures that the file pointer for job's data is
533          reset to the start of the job's datas after the
534          job's size pre-computation phase.
535         
536        - Improved PostScript detection code for bad drivers
537          which don't correctly switch languages between PJL
538          and PS.
539       
540        - Even better debugging code.
541       
542    - 1.19alpha21 :
543   
544        - Additionnal check.
545       
546    - 1.19alpha20 :
547   
548        - More complete logging messages wrt accounters.
549       
550        - Now catches early failures occuring when the configuration
551          files are parsed.
552       
553    - 1.19alpha19 :
554   
555        - Fixed over-verbose exits when displaying help
556          or version.
557         
558        - Extended some PATH in the shell scripts 
559       
560        - Deleting an user now also deletes his payments history.
561       
562        - Doesn't explicitely ignore SIGCHLD anymore. This seems to
563          cause problems.
564
565    - 1.19alpha18 :
566   
567        - History of payments is now stored in the database, and
568          updated each time an user's balance is modified with
569          edpykota --balance. This history represents each time
570          the user was given some positive or negative credit,
571          but doesn't reflect price paid for jobs, which appear
572          in the jobs history instead.
573         
574        - Jobs history web reports now include the job's size in
575          bytes. Also columns were reordered to render the report
576          more easily readable.
577         
578    - 1.19alpha17 :
579   
580        - Mysterious bug (program exited unexpectedly without leaving
581          any log message) which occured once in a while when
582          cancelling jobs should be fixed now.
583         
584        - New 'crashrecipient' directive. Disabled by 
585          default. See sample configuration file to see how
586          to activate it. It is suggested that you activate it.
587         
588        - New PYKOTAJOBSIZEBYTES environment variable exported, 
589          which contains the job's size in bytes. Empty jobs
590          are now denied. This value is now stored in the job
591          history (but not yet displayed from the web interface)
592         
593        - Preliminary work on payments storage : the PostgreSQL 
594          and LDAP schemas should be OK now, but no code is written
595          yet to support this functionnality.
596         
597    - 1.19alpha16 :
598   
599        - the newuser and newgroup LDAP specific directives now accept
600          a second parameter to attach(), "fail" or "warn". If no entry
601          is found to attach PyKota attributes to, and "fail" was used,
602          then action is aborted and program exits in error. If "warn"
603          is used, a new entry is created but a warning message is logged.
604         
605        - The job's originating hostname is now stored in the database,
606          and exported as PYKOTAJOBORIGINATINGHOSTNAME in the environment.
607       
608    - 1.19alpha15 :
609   
610        - The old pykota filter is now removed. This means that
611          currently PyKota doesn't support LPRng anymore, but
612          LPRng support will be re-added, improved, in the near future.
613         
614    - 1.19alpha14 :
615   
616        - PYKOTAPRECOMPUTEDJOBSIZE and PYKOTAPRECOMPUTEDJOBPRICE
617          are now exported as environment variables.
618         
619        - Heavy CPU usage is now completely fixed it seems, by
620          introducing some 0.01 second sleeping when nothing to do.
621         
622        - Pre-computation of the job's size is now only
623          done when enforcement is "STRICT", this saves
624          CPU for people who don't want to use this new
625          feature.
626         
627        - New 'enforcement' directive which accepts either
628          STRICT or LAXIST. See sample configuration file
629          for details.
630         
631    - 1.19alpha13 :
632   
633        - Get back to an old version of the polling loop which
634          worked fine, but non-optimally. Will be optimized
635          as time permits.
636         
637    - 1.19alpha12 :
638   
639        - Job's size is now precomputed unconditionnally using
640          the generic PDL analyzer.
641          NB : This value is not yet used to pre-allow/deny the
642          job.
643       
644    - 1.19alpha11 :
645   
646        - The pykota filter is now completely deprecated and
647          can't be used anymore. LPRng users MUST download
648          an older version of PyKota. CUPS users MUST use
649          cupspykota. Better support for LPRng will come
650          in the near future.
651         
652    - 1.19alpha10 :
653   
654        - pykotme now uses generic PDL Analyzer directly instead
655          of spawning a new process.
656         
657        - Improvements to generic PDL Analyzer.
658       
659        - 25% Speedup in PCL parser. Getting more of the Python version
660          will probably be difficult, since the completely table driven
661          parser I wrote is slower than the original algorithm. Then,
662          the original algorithm is still used for now.
663          Probable that more speed could be achieved using mmap, at the
664          expense of severe memory consumption.
665       
666        - configuration simplifications : the "accounter" directive's
667          'hardware' arguments now accepts what was in the "requester"
668          directive as it's content. The "requester" directive is not
669          supported anymore. See sample configuration file for details.
670       
671    - 1.19alpha9 :
672       
673        - pkpgcounter is now just a wrapper around the PDLAnalyzer class
674       
675        - pykotaOptions LDAP attribute now accepts non-ascii characters
676          too.
677         
678        - First try at cupspykota main loop rewrite
679       
680    - 1.19alpha8 :
681   
682        - 'querying' accounting method is now called 'hardware'
683       
684        - 'external' accounting method is now called 'software'
685       
686        - 'stupid' accounting method doesn't exist anymore
687       
688        - 'snmp' requester doesn't exist anymore
689       
690        - code simplifications in external requester
691       
692    - 1.19alpha7 :
693     
694        - Database schema change (both LDAP and PostgreSQL) to
695          allow storage of the job-originating-hostname attribute.
696          An SQL upgrade script is present. The code is not yet
697          capable of setting/retrieving this attribute. Support
698          for this functionnality will be added in the future.
699         
700    - 1.19alpha6 :
701   
702        - problems connecting to SMTP servers are now catched.
703       
704        - pykotme now uses pkpgcounter to compute the size of the
705          job. This modification adds PCL5 and soon PCLXL (PCL6)
706          support. You can now get quotes for PCL in addition to
707          PostScript.
708         
709        - pkpgcounter now includes first try at PCLXL parser. 
710          It is currently disabled until it's finished.
711         
712    - 1.19alpha5 :
713   
714        - cupspykota polling loop fix for MacOSX (at least)
715       
716        - logging subsystem now logs PID too, to ease diagnosing
717          problems under heavy load.
718         
719        - pkpgcounter enhancements.
720       
721        - pkprinters --skipexisting now tells pkprinters to not
722          modify existing printers when --add is used.
723          pkprinters logs a warning message whenever --add is
724          used and a printer already exists.
725         
726        - LDAP schema now allows accented chars in pykotaFileName
727          and pykotaTitle attributes.
728       
729    - 1.19alpha4 :
730   
731        - a bad copy&paste prevented pkpgcounter to work at all, this
732          is now fixed.
733         
734        - improved PCL support in pkpgcounter, with the use of
735          HP PCL/PJL Reference Set
736          PCL5 Printer Language Technical Quick Reference Guide
737       
738        - pkpgcounter now uses mmap to speed things up : duration
739          is halved with the sample 87 pages PCL document I use for
740          testing.
741         
742    - 1.19alpha3 :
743   
744        - pkprinters now accepts the --list command line argument
745          to list informations about printers.
746         
747    - 1.19alpha2 :
748   
749        - pkpgcounter is now included as a smart external
750          accounter which can handle both PostScript and PCL.
751         
752    - 1.19alpha1 :
753   
754        - PYKOTALIMITBY environment variable is now exported too.
755       
756        - Inclusion of Michele Baldessari's work on autotools.
757       
758    - 1.18 :
759   
760        - Improved documentation
761       
762    - 1.18beta2 :
763     
764        - Fix for raw jobs with cupspykota
765       
766    - 1.18beta :
767   
768        - Small fix for new waitprinter.sh script
769       
770        - Better tracebacks on error conditions
771       
772        - Improved translations
773       
774        - Improved documentation
775       
776    - 1.18alpha15 :
777
778        - waitprinter.sh replaced by a new and possibly faster
779          and more powerful one.
780   
781        - Names can now begin with a digit.
782       
783        - Stability improvement for quotas set on printers groups.
784       
785    - 1.18alpha14 :
786   
787        - Catches more (all ?) problems with SMTP servers instead
788          of breaking.
789         
790        - Italian translation added.
791       
792    - 1.18alpha13 :
793   
794        - Pre and Post hooks are now available in the pykota
795          filter as well.
796         
797        - The pykota filter doesn't check last user's quota
798          anymore when delayed hardware accounting is used :
799          this will be done anyway the next time the last
800          user will print again. This saves some database
801          queries which are unneeded.
802       
803    - 1.18alpha12 :
804   
805        - Pre and Post hooks to external commands with many
806          many environment variables available are useable
807          from the cupspykota backend.
808          See sample configuration file for details and help.
809         
810    - 1.18alpha11 :
811   
812        - Hopefully final fix wrt groups (users and printers)
813       
814    - 1.18alpha10 :
815   
816        - Fixed nested printer groups accounting.
817       
818        - Fixed user groups + printer groups problem.
819       
820    - 1.18alpha9 :
821   
822        - Fix for LDAP problem when job price was 0.
823       
824        - Fix for empty user groups with LDAP.
825       
826        - Preliminary version of the snmpprinterstatus command added.
827       
828    - 1.18alpha8 :
829   
830        - Don't retrieve data when not needed.
831          This avoids many database queries.
832       
833    - 1.18alpha7 :
834   
835        - New experimental ldapcache directive to improve
836          LDAP caching.
837         
838    - 1.18alpha6 :
839       
840        - New configuration directive added : maildomain
841          to specify the domain to send mail to when user
842          email address is not set in PyKota database.
843         
844        - More complete email message headers. 
845         
846    - 1.18alpha5 :
847   
848        - Debian packaging specific files, contributed by
849          Peter Hawkins are now included in the project's tree.
850         
851        - Preliminary work on future low-level LDAP caching to speed
852          up modifications (at least).
853         
854    - 1.18alpha4 :
855   
856        - Applied some of the modifications suggested by
857          Peter Hawkins, for better Debian integration.
858          Most notably cupspykota, pykota, and the shell
859          scripts are now installed into /usr/share/pykota
860          instead of into /usr/bin
861          BEWARE : double check that your symbolic link
862          to cupspykota is correct, and that your pykota.conf
863          file use correct path for the shell scripts like
864          waitprinter.sh and al.
865         
866        - pkhint command added, to help in configuring correct
867          accounting method for PyKota.
868         
869    - 1.18alpha3 :
870   
871        - Fixed a rare bug in cupspykota backend which gave
872          incorrect "CUPS backend died abnormally" messages.
873       
874    - 1.18alpha2 :
875   
876        - Added the pkprinters command line tool to manage printers
877          exclusively.
878       
879    - 1.18alpha1 :
880   
881        - Preliminary work on Relationnal Database Independance.
882       
883        - Sample report made from OpenOffice.org added as PDF and SXC.
884       
885    - 1.17 :

892       
893    - 1.17alpha1 :
894   
895        - User/Group deletion code in edpykota rewritten.
896

899        - Preliminary documentation on how to use OpenOffice.org
900          to create personnalized reports for PyKota + PostgreSQL.
901         
902        - Spanish installation guide for CUPS+PyKota+PostgreSQL
903          added to the documentation. Doesn't yet document v1.16
904          though.
905       
906        - Portuguese Portuguese translation replaces Brasilian
907          Portuguese Translation. Brasilian portuguese
908          translation is still available under the 'br' locale.
909       
910    - 1.16beta3 :
911   
912        - Swedish translation added.
913       
914        - Small fix in documentation.
915       
916    - 1.16beta2 :
917   
918        - Small fix for job cancelling code while job already
919          printing in CUPS backend.
920         
921        - Big fix wrt printing policies for unknown users. 
922       
923    - 1.16beta1 :
924   
925        - Manpages upgraded.
926       
927    - 1.16alpha26 :
928   
929        - Job price is now computed like this :
930       
931          SUM((NbPages * PricePerPage) + PricePerJob)
932         
933          For current printer and all the printers groups it is
934          a member of, if any.
935         
936          This may be difficult to grasp, but offers unprecedented
937          flexibility.
938         
939    - 1.16alpha25 :
940   
941        - Email address can be set at user creation time,
942          using the following syntax :
943         
944            $ edpykota --add username/email@yourdomain.com
945       
946    - 1.16alpha24 :
947   
948        - CGI script now can show the printing history.
949       
950        - Bug wrt number of copies should be fixed.
951       
952        - Major code refactoring => It is now possible to
953          automatically add printers on first print.
954       
955    - 1.16alpha23 :
956   
957        - Fixed potential accuracy problem if a user printed on
958          several printers at the very same time.
959       
960    - 1.16alpha22 :
961   
962        - edpykota now allows adding printers to printer groups
963       
964    - 1.16alpha21 :
965   
966        - Allows the dot in user and printer names.
967       
968        - Printer groups are now cached too.
969       
970    - 1.16alpha20 :
971   
972        - Fixed several small bugs with the help of PyChecker.
973       
974    - 1.16alpha19 :
975     
976        - Fixed a bug in PostgreSQL backend's code.
977       
978    - 1.16alpha18 :
979   
980        - Initial code for printer groups support. Printer groups have
981          to be added with external tools like psql or gq for example.
982          Printer groups seems to work fine with users. Untested with user
983          groups for now.
984
985        - Several minor visual problems fixed in reports.
986       
987        - Fixed a bug in LDAP date handling.
988       
989        - Fix for LDAP problem with some combination of OpenLDAP + Python-LDAP
990          + some particular settings.
991         
992        - mailandpopup.sh shell script added. See sample configuration file
993          for details.
994       
995        - Several environment variables are now exported when executing
996          external commands (accounters, requesters, mailers) :
997           
998            PYKOTAUSERNAME => user who is printing
999            PYKOTAPRINTERNAME => printer on which the job is being sent
1000            PYKOTATITLE => Job's title
1001            PYKOTAFILENAME => Job's filename
1002            PYKOTACOPIES => number of copies asked
1003            PYKOTAOPTIONS => print command options (-o with CUPS)
1004         
1005    - 1.16alpha17 :
1006   
1007        - Added portugues translation.
1008       
1009        - Major code refactoring in accounters.
1010       
1011    - 1.16alpha16 :
1012   
1013        - Code refactoring, and addition of a real HTML reporter, to
1014          have nice looking and useful web based reports (in the future).
1015       
1016        - Added utolower configuration option to convert all usernames
1017          to lowercase during printing.
1018         
1019    - 1.15alpha15 :
1020   
1021        - Now includes the papwaitprinter.sh shell script to wait for
1022          AppleTalk enabled printers.
1023         
1024    - 1.16alpha14 :
1025   
1026        - Now printing on a printer not defined in the Quota Storage,
1027          results in the job being cancelled or stopped, depending
1028          on the printing system.
1029         
1030    - 1.16alpha13 :
1031   
1032        - Small bugfix wrt Python v2.1
1033       
1034        - If username is an empty string, user root is assumed.
1035       
1036        - 'postgresql' is not recognized anymore as a storage backend,
1037          you have to use 'pgstorage' instead. 'postgresql' used to
1038          be supported for compatibility with very old PyKota versions,
1039          this is not the case anymore.
1040         
1041    - 1.16alpha12 :
1042   
1043        - Job price added to job history, to keep accounting correct
1044          if a printer price per page or per job is modified and the
1045          history is not reset : the history would have given a false
1046          amount of money charged before the printer's prices were
1047          modified, this addition solves the problem.
1048         
1049    - 1.16alpha11 :
1050   
1051        - Some preliminary modifications to the database structure for
1052          PostgreSQL and OpenLDAP. A script to upgrade a PostgreSQL
1053          database is now provided. LDAP attributes now support
1054          eq, pres and sub indexes.
1055         
1056        - Job history now contains additional informations : 
1057          number of copies, filename, title and print options.
1058         
1059    - 1.16alpha10 :
1060       
1061        - Some modifications done to external policy handling.
1062          See sample configuration file for details.
1063   
1064        - Spanish translation added.
1065       
1066    - 1.16alpha9 :
1067   
1068        - mailto can be set to external(...) to warn users above
1069          quota with any command of your choice (e.g. linpopup).
1070          Several parameters are available, see sample configuration
1071          file for details.
1072         
1073    - 1.16alpha8 :
1074   
1075        - Now cupspykota transmits SIGTERMS to the original 
1076          backend when the user deletes a job being processed.
1077         
1078        - The documentation is now licensed under the terms of the
1079          GNU GPL too.
1080         
1081    - 1.16alpha7 :
1082   
1083        - The CUPS backend is now fully functionnal (it seems).
1084       
1085        - From now on, the use of the pykota filter with CUPS
1086          is deprecated. The pykota filter still has to be
1087          used with LPRng though.
1088       
1089    - 1.16alpha6 :
1090   
1091        - Bug fixed : when edpykota was used to add a printer
1092          with no user or group name, a bad user/group name "*" was
1093          added to the database.
1094         
1095    - 1.16alpha5 :
1096   
1097        - New CUPS backend supports device enumeration !
1098          This means that NO manual CUPS configuration has to
1099          be done. All can now be done from CUPS web interface.
1100       
1101    - 1.16alpha4 :
1102   
1103        - New CUPS backend added.
1104       
1105    - 1.16alpha3 :
1106       
1107        - Minimal FAQ document added.
1108       
1109    - 1.16alpha2 :
1110   
1111        - CGI script now partially supports browser's language preference
1112       
1113    - 1.16alpha1 :
1114   
1115        - Ensures that the LDAP connection is really closed at end.
1116       
1117        - More complete error messages in case of LDAP operation failure.
1118       
1119    - 1.15 :
1120     
1121        - Documentation improved.
1122       
1123    - 1.15beta :
1124   
1125        - Command line tools now accept multiple printer
1126          names or wildcards, separated with commas.
1127         
1128    - 1.15alpha9 :
1129   
1130        - External policy can be used to auto-add unknown users
1131          and any other interesting things you may want to do.
1132          WARNING : You can't auto-add printers for now.
1133          They have to be created manually before.
1134          Look at sample configuration file for examples.
1135         
1136    - 1.15alpha8 :
1137   
1138        - Job history can be disabled if needed.
1139          This feature may be useful for people who use the LDAP
1140          backend and don't want their LDAP tree to grow out of
1141          control.
1142       
1143    - 1.15alpha7 :
1144   
1145        - More work done on caching wrt groups.
1146       
1147    - 1.15alpha6 :
1148   
1149        - Performance bottleneck with LDAP solved.
1150       
1151    - 1.15alpha5 :
1152   
1153        - Caching mechanism for all database queries.
1154
1155    - 1.15alpha4 :
1156   
1157        - Problem with Python 2.3 fixed. Needs some definitive
1158          modification.
1159         
1160    - 1.15alpha3 :
1161   
1162        - CGI script now tries to restrict view when the
1163          REMOTE_USER environment variable is set. This allows
1164          people to protect its use with .htaccess files.
1165          When unprotected, or if REMOTE_USER is 'root', then
1166          unrestricted access is granted.
1167          NB : REMOTE_USER is automatically set by the web server
1168          (e.g. Apache) when a page with restricted access is viewed.
1169         
1170    - 1.15alpha2 :
1171   
1172        - Better detection of LPRng.
1173       
1174        - Outputs a warning if printing system is unknown.
1175       
1176    - 1.15alpha1 :
1177   
1178        - Bug fix in SQL code.
1179       
1180    - 1.14 :
1181   
1182        - The PostgreSQL database connection is now always closed before
1183          exit. The LDAP database connection too, but it didn't suffer
1184          from the problem anyway, AFAICT.
1185       
1186    - 1.14beta2 :
1187   
1188        - An LDAP-specific configuration field was introduced, usermail.
1189          Use it to specify which LDAP attribute contains a valid email
1190          address for the user. See sample configuration file for
1191          details.
1192       
1193    - 1.14beta :
1194   
1195        - Two new LDAP-specific configuration fields were introduced,
1196          newuser and newgroup. Use them to specify if you want to add
1197          quota information to existing entries or elsewhere.
1198          See sample configuration file for details.
1199         
1200    - 1.14alpha9 :
1201   
1202        - Documentation improved.
1203       
1204        - pykotme now also prints the user's account balance value
1205          if the user is registered in the Quota Storage and his
1206          limiting factor is "balance".
1207         
1208    - 1.14alpha8 :
1209   
1210        - bin/waitprinter.sh is now included to wait for
1211          SNMP enabled printers to be idle again before
1212          asking for their internal page counter.
1213          See sample configuration file for details.
1214         
1215    - 1.14alpha7 :
1216   
1217        - edpykota now doesn't check if the user/group is above
1218          quota. The check is only done at print time. This
1219          prevents the sending of email messages when creating
1220          user quotas if quota is already reached at creation
1221          time.
1222         
1223    - 1.14alpha6 :
1224   
1225        - Configuration file split and moved to /etc/pykota/pykota.conf
1226          and /etc/pykota/pykotadmin.conf to prevent simple users to
1227          have Read/Write access to the Quota Database.
1228          Don't forget to :
1229         
1230                $ chmod 640 /etc/pykota/pykotadmin.conf
1231               
1232        - storageuser and storageuserpw configuration fields reintroduced
1233          for the same reason.
1234         
1235        - Code cleaning for future implementation of email addresses
1236          support in the PostgreSQL and LDAP backends.
1237         
1238    - 1.14alpha5 :
1239       
1240        - Big bug fixed when changing the prices for a printer
1241       
1242    - 1.14alpha4 :
1243   
1244        - When adding an user, the user itself and its account balance
1245          are now added in the same LDAP entry. Before they were added
1246          as two different LDAP entries.
1247         
1248    - 1.14alpha3 :
1249   
1250        - Email field added to PostgreSQL database. An upgrade script
1251          is included in initscripts/postgresql.
1252       
1253    - 1.14alpha2 :
1254   
1255        - Typo fixed when using the --prototype option to edpykota
1256       
1257    - 1.14alpha1 :
1258   
1259        - Poor man's treshold included : users with a low account
1260          balance (below 1.0 by default, configurable) are sent
1261          a warning message.
1262         
1263        - All warning messages to users are now configurable. 
1264          NB : Warning messages to the administrator are not.
1265       
1266    - 1.13 :
1267   
1268        - Some small fixes wrt group handling.
1269       
1270        - The whole module code was passed through PyChecker and
1271          several small code inconsistencies were fixed,
1272          as well as a bug in the groups code.
1273         
1274    - 1.13alpha1 :
1275   
1276        - Bug fix wrt LDAP.
1277       
1278    - 1.12 :
1279   
1280        - More complete test added in edpykota.
1281       
1282    - 1.12alpha2 :
1283   
1284        - The previous bug fix was incomplete. This is corrected.
1285       
1286    - 1.12alpha1 :
1287   
1288        - Small bug fix.
1289       
1290    - 1.11 :
1291   
1292        - Now includes the pykotme command line tool, to produce
1293          printing quotes for users.
1294         
1295    - 1.10 :
1296   
1297        - Bug fixed wrt quota reports when print limiting is by
1298          account balance.
1299         
1300    - 1.09 :
1301   
1302        - Translations finalized.
1303       
1304        - Manpages updated.
1305       
1306        - Installation documentation improved wrt LDAP support.
1307       
1308    - 1.09beta2 :
1309   
1310        - The CGI script for quota reports works again, and
1311          is much more powerful.
1312       
1313    - 1.09beta :
1314   
1315        - edpykota finalized
1316       
1317    - 1.09alpha2 :
1318   
1319        - LDAP schema modified a bit. Please upgrade.
1320       
1321        - LDAP backend works !
1322       
1323        - repykota and warnpykota allow the root user to pass
1324          users or groups names on the command line. Users
1325          and groups names may contain wildcards.
1326         
1327        - repykota and warnpykota only reports or warns the
1328          current user when launched by non-root users.
1329         
1330        - Minor bug fixes. 
1331   
1332    - 1.09alpha1 :
1333   
1334        - More work on LDAP storage backend. Many options
1335          were added to /etc/pykota.conf to give some
1336          hints to the LDAP storage backend.
1337         
1338        - Severe database access optimizations were done by
1339          rewriting most of the Quota Storage backends drivers.
1340     
1341    - 1.08 :
1342   
1343        - Major bug fix wrt LPRng support for remote jobs.
1344       
1345        - Major bug fix wrt increase/decrease account balances.
1346       
1347    - 1.08alpha8 :
1348   
1349        - Code refactoring.
1350       
1351        - A single user/password pair is used to connect
1352          to the database backend. The storageuser configuration
1353          field, and its associated passwords storageuserpw, are
1354          not used anymore.
1355         
1356        - You can now set PyKota in debug mode, see sample configuration 
1357          file for details.
1358          WARNING : only Quota Storage backend queries are logged in
1359          debug mode, for now.
1360       
1361    - 1.08alpha7 :
1362   
1363        - Very latest LDAP schema.
1364       
1365        - Code enhancement wrt easy pluggability of PyKota attributes
1366          and object classes into an existing LDAP directory.
1367       
1368    - 1.08alpha6 :
1369   
1370        - Minor bug corrections
1371       
1372        - More work on LDAP : new schema
1373       
1374    - 1.08alpha5 :
1375   
1376        - More good work on LDAP storage.
1377          repykota now works reasonably well with the sample LDAP directory.
1378       
1379    - 1.08alpha4 :
1380   
1381        - LDAP schema included.
1382          THIS IS JUST FOR PEOPLE TO DISCUSS ABOUT THIS.
1383          LDAP SUPPORT DOESN'T WORK YET, AND THE SCHEMA
1384          MAY CHANGE IN THE FUTURE. PLEASE TELL US
1385          WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS SCHEMA ON THE
1386          MAILING LIST.
1387         
1388    - 1.08alpha3 :
1389   
1390        - External accounting methods were partly rewritten :
1391         
1392          - No more "broken pipe" should happen.
1393         
1394          - They now take care of the number of copies
1395            This may be unneeded though, if the postscript
1396            file already does this, because this would
1397            overcharge users (number of copies counted
1398            two times). NEEDS MORE TESTING.
1399           
1400          - The sample configuration file now contains 
1401            an external accounting method example which should
1402            work with all DSC compliant Postscript files.
1403           
1404        - Some small bugs were fixed.   
1405       
1406    - 1.08alpha2 :
1407   
1408        - Now works with net-snmp v5.0 and above.
1409          It already worked, but the sample configuration
1410          file didn't contain appropriate values...
1411       
1412    - 1.07 : Release of the Shame !
1413   
1414        - The external accounting methods driver was left out of
1415          the CVS tree. Nobody could use it since it wasn't included !
1416         
1417    - 1.06 :
1418   
1419        - Severe bug fixed : if you had a printer in
1420          power saving state which couldn't answer immediately,
1421          a bug was triggered.
1422          It was caused by a bad copy/paste which
1423          forgot to import a Python module at run time.
1424         
1425    - 1.05 :
1426   
1427        - External accounters are finally available !
1428          This means that you can plug any page accounting
1429          method you like by setting the appropriate
1430          'accounter' field in /etc/pykota.conf
1431          See the sample conf/pykota.conf.sample to
1432          learn how to do.
1433         
1434          NB : Both 'external' and 'stupid' accounting methods
1435               account a job size just before *this* job is
1436               sent to the printer.
1437               The original 'querying' method accounts a job
1438               size just before *the next* job is sent to
1439               the printer.
1440       
1441    - 1.05alpha3 :
1442   
1443        - A 'stupid' and unreliable accounting method was
1444          implemented to serve as an example on how to
1445          do this sort of things. This method only counts
1446          the 'showpage' statements in the input data.
1447          See sample configuration file for details.
1448          Pluggable accounting methods work, but I advise
1449          you TO NOT USE THIS ONE WHICH IS JUST AN EXAMPLE.
1450          It is not reliable enough to be used.
1451          Use the 'querying' accounting method instead.
1452         
1453    - 1.05alpha2 :
1454   
1455        - Pluggable accounting methods.
1456       
1457        - Better error handling.
1458       
1459    - 1.05alpha1 :
1460   
1461        - SECURITY file added to help improve PyKota's security.
1462       
1463        - Extracting the printer's internal page counter is now
1464          tried several times, waiting several seconds between
1465          two tries. This lets the time to warm up for some printers
1466          which don't answer when they are sleeping (my Apple
1467          LaserWriter 16/600 PS is in this case, maybe others too)
1468         
1469        - Small display bug fixed in repykota
1470         
1471    - 1.04 :
1472   
1473        - Default print policy for users/groups unknown from
1474          the print quota system is now DENY instead of ALLOW,
1475          since ALLOW can generate inaccurate results
1476          (incorrect job sizes charged to the wrong persons)
1477         
1478        - LPRng support works !
1479       
1480        - A bug was introduced some time ago wrt printers' default
1481          policy for unknown users. It is now corrected.
1482       
1483        - repykota now displays prices per job and per page for each
1484          printer, if they are defined.
1485         
1486        - Minor display bug fixed in repykota.
1487       
1488        - Problem when running repykota with an empty database was fixed.
1489       
1490    - 1.03 :
1491   
1492        - Upgrade script included for earlier versions.
1493          Please look inside the initscripts subdirectory.
1494          THE DATABASE SCHEMA HAS CHANGED, PLEASE UPGRADE.
1495         
1496        - repykota now reports account balances too.
1497       
1498        - PyKota now has a nice logo, see the logos
1499          subdirectory.
1500       
1501        - Manual pages were finally updated.
1502       
1503        - Group quotas seem to work now !
1504       
1505        - The new database schema allows to keep an history of all
1506          jobs as well as charge users per page and/or per job,
1507          and track users' account balance.
1508         
1509        - edpykota now accepts much more command line options to 
1510          use the new functionnalities. See edpykota --help for
1511          details.
1512         
1513        - The installation script now allows to install the sample
1514          configuration file during first installation.
1515         
1516        - More group quota code works, but still not finished. 
1517       
1518        - The CGI script displays a link to PyKota's website.
1519       
1520        - The job history is now kept, this will allow per-period
1521          reports in the future.
1522         
1523        - After having modified the quota for an user with edpykota,
1524          a quota check is done to eventually warn the user/admin about
1525          a quota which is too low to print.
1526         
1527        - A workaround is provided for HP Printers : their internal
1528          page counter is only saved to NVRAM in a 10 increment, so
1529          if you switch them off and then on, the reported page counter
1530          may be lower than the real number of pages printed.
1531          See http://web.mit.edu/source/third/lprng/doc/LPRng-HOWTO-15.html
1532          We unconditionnally set the last job's page count to
1533          abs(int((10 - abs(lastcounter(snmp) - lastcounter(storage)) / 2))
1534          in this case.
1535          For a more accurate accounting, never switch your HP printers
1536          off.
1537         
1538        - A fix is provided for printers which only have a volatile 
1539          page counter (reset to 0 every time you switch the printer on)
1540          This should allow PyKota to work reasonably fine with HP Laserjet
1541          4L/5L/6L, not perfect, but better than nothing.
1542          See http://web.mit.edu/source/third/lprng/doc/LPRng-HOWTO-15.html
1543          For a more accurate accounting, never switch your HP printers
1544          off. This is untested, please report any problem.
1545         
1546        - A bug was fixed when edpykota --add was used with users who already
1547          had a quota on the specified printer.
1548         
1549        - A small display bug in repykota was introduced in preliminary
1550          1.03 versions, and fixed later on.
1551         
1552        - Some minor bugs which happened in rare situations were fixed.
1553       
1554        - Support for AppleTalk printers was added, see sample configuration
1555          file for details.
1556         
1557        - Users and group printing can now be controlled (limited) either by 
1558          print quota or by account balance.
1559       
1560    - 1.02 :
1561   
1562        - The installation script now checks for software availability
1563          and in case a software is missing asks the user if he
1564          wants to continue with the installation or abort it.
1565         
1566        - The configuration file pykota.conf is now expected to be
1567          found in /etc instead of in /etc/cups
1568          The installation script prompts the user to see if he
1569          wants to move an old configuration file to the new location
1570          if needed.
1571         
1572        - Improved documentation.
1573       
1574        - You can now set the tcp/ip port on which the Quota Storage
1575          Server is listening, see sample configuration file for details.
1576       
1577        - Better general error handling.
1578       
1579        - Upgrade script for pre 1.01 PostgreSQL database schema is now
1580          included as well.
1581       
1582    - 1.01 :
1583   
1584        - The configuration file now accepts an option   
1585          to choose the recipient(s) of the email messages :
1586         
1587            - DevNull means no one will receive them.
1588            - User means only the user will receive them.
1589            - Admin means only the admin will receive them.
1590            - Both means the User and the Admin will receive them.
1591           
1592        - The configuration file now uses hard-coded default values
1593          when an option is not set. See sample configuration file
1594          for details.
1595         
1596        - Manual pages are included since 1.00, but I forgot to   
1597          add this information to this file.
1598         
1599        - Redistribution terms for the official package have 
1600          softened and are now fully GPL compatible :
1601          unrestricted modification is now allowed even for
1602          the version number.
1603         
1604    - 1.00 :
1605   
1606        - edpykota now accepts a --noquota option. This
1607          disable quota checking while still doing page
1608          accounting. This is really useful for people
1609          who don't want to limit their users but want
1610          to know how much pages they print.
1611         
1612        - Some untested scripts were added to retrieve
1613          the life time page counter of non-SNMP printers.
1614         
1615        - Every directory now has a specific README file. 
1616       
1617    - 0.99 :
1618   
1619        - Under some circumstances while the user wasn't allowed
1620          to print, he didn't receive any email message. It is
1621          now fixed.
1622         
1623        - When an user wasn't allowed to print, the quota for
1624          the previous user wasn't updated. This is now fixed.
1625         
1626    - 0.98 :
1627   
1628        - Correctly handle the case where the printer is switched off.
1629       
1630        - Small bug wrt syslog fixed.
1631       
1632    - 0.97 :
1633   
1634        - edpykota accepts wildcards on its command line for users/groups too
1635          if the --add option is not set, e.g. :
1636         
1637              $ edpykota --printer lp --softlimit 50 --hardlimit 100 "jer*"
1638             
1639        - If no user name is passed at all, then a default wildcard of "*"
1640          which means apply the command on ALL users for this printer is used.
1641         
1642        - Small bug fixes.
1643       
1644    - 0.96 :
1645
1646        - Options requester, policy, admin, adminmail and gracedelay can now
1647          be set either globally or per printer. The printer option has
1648          priority if both are defined.
1649
1650        - More powerful configuration parser.
1651       
1652        - If all options are defined globally, there's no need to
1653          define a section for each printer in the configuration
1654          file anymore. Just define a [global] section and it's ok.
1655
1656    - 0.95 :
1657
1658        - External requesters for printers finally added.
1659
1660        - Full internationalization (english and french are supported)
1661 
1662        - More complete quota usage report
1663
1664        - CGI script to access to the quota usage report
1665
