In this session we will first finalize the features and roadmap for CUPS 2.5 (due end-2023) which has a focus on OAuth and new container/sandbox/distribution-independent-packaging support. Then we will discuss the features and roadmap for CUPS 3.0 (planned end-2024) which implements the all-IPP New Architecture of printing, a well simplified architecture making use of the modern driverless printers.
