Posted by Apposite Solution Limited on 08 October 2019 11:47 AM

Enhancements

  • Added new lookup mechanisms to External Database Lookup. SysAdmins can now search for users based on email, username alias, or username with a username alias backup. PC-15557

Fixes

  • EPSON SC-P6000/7000/8000/9000, PX-H7000/9000 Series printer driver: Fixed an issue that caused the following problems:
    • incorrect number of pages and copies
    • page size was incorrectly detected as A4 or Letter if printed on some page sizes that wide-format plotter supports
    PC-16397
  • Canon imagePROGRAF printer driver:
    • Fixed an issue that caused number of pages and page size to be tracked incorrectly when printing to a page size other than A4.
      Limitation:
      • The charging type "by paper area" doesn't work with this driver since we cannot identify the paper width.
      • The page size is still identified as A4 if printing from Google Chrome's print menu (rather than the system dialog) to a page size not used by a general office-use printer such as A0 and B1. This is a limitation of the Google Chrome and printer driver combination.
      PC-16416
    • PRO-4000 series XPS printer driver: Fixed an issue that could cause an incorrect number of color pages to be counted. PC-16587
  • PaperCut Global PostScript printer driver: Fixed an issue that could cause a document printed from Microsoft Office and some other products to be printed in color even though the "Black & White" output was set.
    Note: This fix applies only when the color detection mode on the admin console is set to page-level. PC-13918
  • Print Provider:
    • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused garbled characters to be output to the debug logs. PC-16495
    • Fixed an issue that caused the Print Provider to crash if printed with a Sharp PostScript printer driver on macOS. PC-16533
  • Print Provider on Windows:
    • Fixed an issue that might cause a job printed from Windows Apps to be recorded twice when printing to a shared printer with server side rendering. PC-15913
    • Fixed a rare issue that can cause some print jobs to disappear from the Jobs Pending Release screen or fail to print after releasing in high print load environments. PC-15767
    • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused print jobs to be lost when a Find-Me queue was used in very high load environments. PC-15573
  • Added support for Windows Mandatory Profile to the User Client. PC-16512
  • Added additional `RemoveHostnameAndDomainName` option in PaperCut LPD service config file `pc-lpd.config`. When it is set to true, the PaperCut LPD service will remove hostname and domain name from the job owner's name. PC-16384
  • Added a config key to manually override any group memberships when using LDAP as primary sync source, by defining them in an external file <app-path>/data/conf/additional-groups.txt (user-source.group-list-override-file=Y) PC-16087
  • Changed the label on the PaperCut Port dialog for port creation and configuration to refer to "Printer Hostname" instead of "Printer name". PC-16040
  • Mobility Print, Windows Server: Chromebook, Android, macOS and iOS clients will be able to see more non standard paper sizes supported by printer drivers.PC-16407
  • Fixed an issue that could cause color and greyscale pages to be counted incorrectly when using Hardware Page Count with Ricoh devices. PC-16402

      • Fixed a bug that caused the error message "Your account allows only one job at a time. Please wait for other jobs to finish." to be displayed at the start of the scan if the previous scan had been completed by selecting the sharp device home button from the "Scan More or Finish" screen. PC-6251
      • Added some navigation improvements when the "ext-device.sharp-osa-n2.device-functions-on-login" configuration setting is enabled. The application now returns to the native home screen when the scan completes instead of navigating to the PaperCut home screen. The PaperCut home screen button is hidden at the top left of the page on the Scan Action List, Scan Action and Scan Completion page.

  • Canon imagePROGRAF printer driver:
    • Fixed an issue that caused number of pages and page size to be tracked incorrectly when printing to a page size other than A4.
      Limitation:
      • The charging type "by paper area" doesn't work with this driver since we cannot identify the paper width.
      • The page size is still identified as A4 if printing from Google Chrome's print menu (rather than the system dialog) to a page size not used by a general office-use printer such as A0 and B1. This is a limitation of the Google Chrome and printer driver combination.
