The team behind HP Linux Imaging and Printing, better known as HPLIP, announced yesterday that the fifth version of the stable 3.16 series of the software is now available, which is HPLIP 3.16.5. For those unfamiliar with this software, HP Linux Imaging and Printing is an open source initiative that aims to bring the latest HP printer drivers to GNU / Linux operating systems. The software has a fairly active development team and they release maintenance versions at least once a month.
The release of HPLIP 3.16.5 is proof that the project is gaining in importance with each passing day, offering support for more HP (Hewlett-Packard) printers than any other proprietary software. The latest version of HPLIP includes support for the HP OfficeJet 200 series printer and the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 all-in-one printer.
