PaperCut MF 18.1.3 (Build 43883)
Posted by Apposite Solution Limited on 15 May 2018 10:07 AM

This is a Maintenance Release for 18.1 and contains the following changes:

Fixes:

  • Mobility Print: On Linux and macOS servers, fixed an issue preventing the account selection popup from being displayed when enabled.

  • Linux/Mac: Improved handling of "Printer Command Jobs" to prevent erroneous charges and unnecessary Account Selection Popups.
  • The login button to the PaperCut Pay Station is now disabled while the user is being authenticated. This addresses an issue that could result in funds not being correctly associated with the user's account.
  • Enhanced the Windows Print Provider when using SNMP to detect printer errors. Windows queue status is now updated with the correct printer error state.
  • Fixed an issue in the external account API that caused canceled jobs charged to shared accounts to be be refunded incorrectly.

  • Print Archiving: Fixed a rare issue that caused print archiving to fail, especially when printing via Mobility Print.

    • Provided an option to fix an issue when Sonicwall Firewall Content Filtering System (CFS) is used that prevented secondary servers and Direct Print Monitors from accessing the Application Server and Site Servers. For details on how to set this option, see SonicWall with Content Filter Service.**
    • Windows: PaperCut MF takes the Windows Job Status into consideration when canceling a print job. In addition to the Job Status of Error, the Windows Print Provider now also recognizes Offline, Paper Out, and User Intervention as potential errors.**

    • Fixed an issue causing incorrect page counts of print jobs generated from KWS (UZ Leuven).
    • Fixed a rare issue with some PostScript drivers that caused a color page to be incorrectly detected as grayscale.
