Comment 17 for bug 51573

According to the Debian package maintainer (Henrique de Moraes Holschuh) HPLIP 0.9.11, 0.9.10, 0.9.9 and 0.9.8 had some issues and regressions compared to HPLIP 0.9.7, therefore he has kept HPLIP 0.9.8+ from entering debian/testing.

HPLIP 1.6.7 was allowed to enter debian/testing since it fixes a number of issues for CUPS 1.2 and supports many new printers.
