GTK Printing

Michael Ventnor has integrated the GTK print dialog and spooling infrastructure into Gecko; for details and screenshots see his blog post. This is a big improvement in printing for Linux users for Firefox 3.

I'm very pleased because it's one of the features Nat wanted me to do while I was at Novell that I didn't get to.

I made Michael go through many iterations of code review and improvement, but it's probably not perfect yet, so test it and file bugs!


It's going too fast, there's too much improvements for Linux! Stop! :-P
How does this technology do with large printing?
