PaperCut NG 17.4.2 (Build 42387)
Posted by Apposite Solution Limited on 05 December 2017 09:45 AM


  • Mobility Print:
    • Support for Linux and macOS environments by the Mobility Print server.
    • DNS setup is even easier with a new improved workflow in the Mobility Print Admin interface to help you configure DNS-SD.
  • Windows Print Provider: Added an option to change print queue error monitoring to SNMP (ErrorPollMethod=snmp in print-provider.conf). This speeds up the time on Fast Release Stations, Standard Release Stations and all web-based Release Station interfaces to:
    • block the release of print jobs when a print queue is in error, and
    • stop blocking the release when the print queue is no longer in an error state.
  • Improved the wording of the "Make shared account/PIN code visible" security options in the Account Options area on the Options > General page.
  • Web Print Sandbox mode security**: The confg key that controls document macros is now disabled by default (web-print.disable-macros).
  • Basque translations are now available for the PaperCut NG User web interface.


  • Mac and Linux: Fixed an issue where the printer toner level, model, and serial number was not updated on the Printer Details page for printers using some Xerox drivers.
  • Windows Print Provider: Fixed a rare issue that caused Print Provider to crash if PDL transforms were enabled.
  • Microsoft Applications on Windows 10: Fixed a rare issue that caused print jobs not to be tracked when printing to Windows servers with server side rendering, when Hide Document Names have been activated.
  • HP printers on a Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 print server: Fixed an occasional issue that caused an incorrect number of pages to be reported when printing multiple copies.
  • Site Server: Fixed an issue to improve Site Server registration and sync performance in organisations with many Site Servers where some Site Servers some times incorrectly switched to the offline mode.

Other Notes:

  • If you are running v17.2.1 or later, there is NO database upgrade.
  • **All Web Print sandbox servers must be updated to apply the default behavior of the config key (i.e. disabling document macros by default).
