Version: 1.6.1 User: joesmoe

lpr: Unsupported document-format "image/jpeg".

lpr: Unsupported document-format "text/plain".

The readme.txt file and install.txt file make no mention of the custom filters

P2 documentation for README, which somehow those changes got lost. They are still in the whatsnew.html file:

Open Printing Filters; The parallel and serial backends, php_cups scripting module, and bannertops, commandtoescpx, commandtopclx, imagetops, imagetoraster, pdftops, rastertoescpx, rastertopclx, and texttops filters are now provided as part of a separate cups-filters project hosted by the Linux Foundation.

See for the cups-filters project, which tracks the filters needed for printing on Linux, Solaris, *BSD, etc. These filters are no longer provided in CUPS starting with CUPS 1.6.
