New features:

  • Test notifications can now be sent to specific email addresses as well as by entering a username.
  • The Windows release station zero-install method ("pc-release-local-cache.exe") now automatically updates more config files each time it is launched ( and, simplifying deployment of multiple release stations from a central location.

  • Improved support for IPv6 when using the Windows Print Services for Unix (LPR and IPP).
  • All printing based reports now have an ad hoc filter for printer groups.
  • Improved logging to diagnose secondary server connection issues caused by security settings.

  • Fixed small memory leak in the Windows print provider service.
  • Sensitive fields are no longer logged to the App Log when they are changed in the Config Editor (e.g. SMTP passwords).
  • Windows: fixed printing order when a large number of print jobs are released at once (more than about 40 jobs).
  • Improved reliability of watermarking on the HP 4100 with PostScript drivers.
  • Release Station: Fixed anonymous print release for release stations running in "release any" mode.
  • Release Station: Improved support for card authentication when using card header and trailer that are the same character.
