Latest version of HPLIP will not function properly

My second problem with OpenSUSE 11.2 Milestone 2 ; I have an HP Color LaserJet 2600n and it is not supported by the version of HPLIP included with 11.1 or this pre-release version. In 11.1, I downloaded and compiled the latest HPLIP and this resolved the issue. My first question is why does the development team not include the latest HPLIP, and 2) when I tried to compile it under oS11.2M2 it installed like normal but when I went to printer, I was told that an HPLIP foomatic filter was missing (this did not happen in 11.1) and I do not know how to resolve this situation. If you have any ideas, please advise. Thanks in advance!
