Version: 1.4-feature User: nerve


we are printing many invoices to many 100 printers from hp,
mostly attached to hp jetdirect printboxes.

After the upgrade vom 1.1.x to 1.3.5
we have set all queues to retry-job.

No it's a big problem if a job goes to hold
(becouse of a fail off the ipp backend --> mostly if many jobs
are submitted in a short time period e.g. the printer is busy )
the next job is printed.

But we have many situations in which is not ok to
reorder the print requests, because it must then manualy sorted by hand !!!

Please implement a jobqueue modus like
'no-stop' --> means like retry-job,
but not print other jobs in the meantime, print all jobs in queue order!

P.s. why is the ipp backend more sensitive than in 1.1.x ?

Many Thank's,
Cups is a great produkt !
We use it with 600 Printers and print
over 30000 Pages per day.

Great's Daniel Heule
