--- Comment #2 from Johannes Meixner <jsmeix@xxxxxxxx> ---
See in current cups-filters sources the NEWS file:
- gstoraster, gstopxl, gstopdf, pstopdf: Integrated
functionality of script-based filters pstopdf and gstopxl
into gstoraster filter as script-based filters cannot access
the print queue's PPD file with current CUPS due to change
of PPD file permissions. To make gstoraster always produce
the correct output format (CUPS/PWG Raster, PDF, PCL-XL) it
is called via new wrapper scripts (gstopdf, gstopxl) which
set an environment variable telling the format. The old
filter scripts got removed.

See also
where the "filter/pstopdf" was removed
and "mime/cupsfilters-ghostscript.convs" was adapted so that
application/postscript gets converted into application/pdf
now via gstopdf (instead of pstopdf that was used before).
