Just wondering why cups 1.4 series is still ~?

I don't see any bugs related to this version that are not solvable (one only, related to gnutls, which requires threads to be enabled).

Whilst the 'Find printers' is kinda nice, it's pretty useless if you have multiple printers of the same model as they all seem to show the same name, making it impossible to reliably choose the correct one. In my case, I see two "hp color LaserJet 5550 (hp color LaserJet 5550)", amongst others, and there is no indication as to which is which, not even the IP address.

The main thing keeping cups-1.4 from going stable is documenting the interaction between cups USB support and CONFIG_USB_PRINTER in the kernel, which has changed since 1.3.
