2004-09-13: cvs - Hin-Tak Leung
   . x86_64 platform issue: shared libraries requires -fPIC
     to build. Removed and the original ijs*example* targets
     from makefiles. We link statically with libieee1284 or libusb
     as always, so there is no need to do anything about these two.
2004-06-18: cvs - Hin-Tak Leung
   . update IJS component to 0.35
2004-06-02: cvs - Hin-Tak Leung

   . First attempt to do (free mem) flow control on 6100L.

2003-09-04: cvs - Roberto Ragusa
   . Unified all sleeping functions into sleep_seconds(double s).
   . We try to accurately detect how big is the buffer of the printer
     (this will be useful for future enhancements).
   . Flow control is now more cleanly integrated. At the moment
     there are two speed limiters: a stripe to stripe delay
     (used only for 5700L) and a closed-loop free mem delay
     (5800L, 5900L only; it should work for 5700L too but it's
     disabled because htl doesn't want it :-) ).
   . The free mem flow control now uses a better estimation
   . Small misc fixes (code style, debug output).
   . Added epl_time.c, a lot of code has been moved around.

2003-07-18: cvs - Hin-Tak Leung

     first tests.
   . Printer replies are now interpreted and logged (if debug is on) for
     5800L/5900L. 5700L and 6100L need some work to implement that.
   . can be run without having to "make install".
   . Misc fixes and moved some code around.

2003-04-10: cvs - Roberto Ragusa

   . documentation update regarding USB and the 4-bit code.

        reverting "USB=on" in ps2epl to "off", as there is now
        two ways of doing 5700L USB printing.
