In the documentation ESP Ghostscript is still recommended #2463
Today GPL Ghostscript 8.60 with the ESP Ghostscript functionality merged in (esp. the "cups" output device) will be released and so the merger of ESP Ghostscript into upstream Ghostscript completed. ESP Ghostscript is finally obsolete from today on.
The documentation of CUPS 1.3 (supposed to be released after today) still recommends ESP Ghostscript and if one looks onto the ESP Ghostscript page here on the CUPS web site it is told that it is discontinued.
The documentation which comes with CUPS (and also the documentation on the CUPS web site) needs to be updated, recommending GPL Ghostscript 8.60 or newer from www.ghostscript.com.
I have observed the problem in README.txt and INSTALL.txt, but it probably occurs also in other files and other software packages.
