I have packaged CUPS 1.7b1, a first beta version of the 1.7.x series of
CUPS and uploaded it to my PPA  for both Raring and Saucy, both based
on the current Debian 1.6.2-8 package of CUPS (source packages of Raring
and Saucy version are identical).
There are only a few new features, mainly API enhancements :
- Improved support for paid, PIN, and release printing
- Expanded support for IPP Everywhere
- Automatic support for data compression
- Improved CUPS APIs
Note that most of the upstream web site is down currently, so I do not
have much more info about the new release.
Please try it out and report your experiences here.
