o Printerdrake,
+ Removed stuff for automatic print queue setup when starting CUPS.
+ When printerdrake's first-time dialog appears on plugging a USB printer, the user can now also turn off print queue auto-setup before starting printerdrake and so without needing the printing infrastructure to be installed.
+ Added automatic setup of Ethernet-connected HP printers with HPLIP.
+ When one chooses "Printer Connection Type" in the "Edit" menu of an Ethernet-connected printer which is under the control of HPLIP or HPOJ, "LOCAL" was pre-selected as connection type and not "SOCKET". Fixed.
+ Made matching of detected printer model name with HPLIP database more reliable.
