Should we really be having to be told all this, and have to modify PPD files that worked with the Beta release?
Surely this "Printers" implementation should work - "out of the box" . . . . well directly after installation and supplying the PPD file for a specific printer, but having to mess about like this tends to indicate, to me, that it's not been completed to a mature offering, and should probably have been left in the box (off the ISO) - until a mature, useable version was completed.
I really am disappointed with much of v3.10, which I wish hadn't been released, as it just doesn't seem to be up to the usual high standard that we are used to, IMHO.
