GNOME's GTK+ Gains Google CloudPrint Support
Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 28 February 2014 at 09:22 AM EST. 11 Comments
A new feature that's landed for GNOME 3.12 is GTK+ now supporting Google's CloudPrint service.

CloudPrint is the Google web service for users to share their printers and having a "Print to File" menu item that is basically the same as "Save to Google Drive." This GTK+ CloudPrint support works with GNOME-Online-Accounts for gaining access to your Google account and is able to discover printers, obtain printer details, and submit print jobs.

This GTK print back-end was merged today by Red Hat's Tim Waugh into GTK+ master. More details on this new printing module can be found via the GNOME Wiki.
