Copier / Device Integration

  • Canon Gen3+ (MEAP) (version 1.0.0)*:
    • PaperCut MF now provides a new solution for supported Canon MEAP 3rd generation devices.

  • Fuji Xerox ApeosPort V+:
    • Added the ability for "Fuji Xerox (AIP)" users to log in by using the panel "Start" button MAC-5969

  • HP (OXP Printer Only):
    • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused a card swipe failure to not display an error message. MAC-5983
  • HP (OXP):
    • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused a card swipe failure to not display an error message. MAC-5983
    • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused the card reader to stop responding to card swipes. MAC-5980
    • Improved the resilience of the card reader registration process, which should reduce instances of card readers not responding. MAC-5857

  • Sharp OSA (HTML Browser n2.0+):
    • Integrated scanning: Fixed an issue that caused integrated scanning to be disabled on devices with inconsistent server and device settings. The server requires a standard OSA application to be configured on the device for integrated scanning. The "Address for Application UI" setting for OSA app required the URL hostname or IP address to exactly match the expected value. The improved implementation matches equivalent hostname and IP addresses. MAC-6204
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the PaperCut app to crash if a print job was released that had no account set. PC-16497

Other Notes:

  • If you are running v19.1.1, there is NO database upgrade.
  • * Requires installing an updated version of the embedded software to access new features and fixes.

    Get the right print driver and right print queue to the right person in the right location, automatically. With Print Deploy:
    • Print queues are dynamically deployed as mobile staff move between branches, stores, or campuses.
    • Native drivers are installed along with default settings (grayscale, duplex etc.) and capabilities (stapling, hole punching etc).
    • It doesn't matter whether printing to a server or printing directly to a printer in a print-serverless environment.
    • Mac and Windows computers are supported (with Linux and Chromebooks to come shortly).
    • Support for computers that are not joined to a local domain (for example, G Suite or Microsoft Azure AD).
  • Custom Reports
    • You can now manage and run your own custom reports built in JasperSoft Studio. Note that updated documentation will be available by GA. PC-15694

    • Added new server commands that allow users to look up PaperCut NG/MF usernames by other descriptors such as email, full name, and user alias:
      • look-up-user-name-by-email <email>
