PaperCut NG 11.6 (Build 15782)
Posted on 02 December 2011 10:19 AM

New features:

  • AirPrint support. PaperCut now enables printing to all your PaperCut managed printers across your enterprise. As well as enabling printing, the PaperCut iPad App also provides the rich functionality desktop users are used to, such as authentication, balance display and selecting / charging to shared accounts when printing. More information is available in the user manual.


  • Because of the increasing use of graphics application and Mac systems, PostScript files are getting larger. After significant performance profiling in PaperCut's PostScript parser we have improved analysis speed, showing a performance improvement of up to 6x.
  • Added an option to hide/display report parameters on top of the reports.
  • Added new print script recipes (examples):
    • To cancel large jobs sent by users in a particular group.
    • To only accept jobs sent from workstations in a particular subnet.


  • Improved recovery when database connection problems occur during server start-up.
  • Fixed problem when authenticating from a release station with usernames in the "DOMAIN\username" format.
  • When running the "Control Printer Monitoring" program on Mac to enable/disable printers, the displayed number of enabled printers is now correct.

Printer compatibility improvements:

  • Added support for tracking printing for the NEC MultiWriter 8250N.
  • Improved page level color detection for Ubuntu PostScript printing.
  • Improved document level color detection for Canon iPF series devices (5100, 6550, 8100 and possibly others).
  • Improved duplex detection on OKI B410 (PCL5).
  • Fixed position of bottom-of-page watermarks for ledger page sizes for Toshiba PCL6 printers.
  • Added support for Canon UFR II print driver on Mac.
  • Improved analysis of RPCS (Ricoh) drivers.
  • Detect non-standard paper sizes for the Ricoh Aficio MP W2400 printer.
