PaperCut MF 19.0.1 (Build 49140)
Posted by Apposite Solution Limited on 09 April 2019 02:25 PM

Note: This release no longer supports 32-bit workstations. If you have users launching the User Client or Release Station on a 32-bit workstation, see this Knowledge Base article for more information. PC-15503

New Features:

  • Assigning accounts to print jobs at the device: The SysAdmin can now configure PaperCut MF to allow users to assign accounts to held print jobs sent from any client (including via Mobility Print**), directly at the device before releasing the job. MAC-5254, MAC-5253, MAC-5252, MAC-5327
    This applies to:
    • Fuji Xerox ApeosPort V+
    • HP (OXP)
    • Konica Minolta (OpenAPI)
    • Kyocera (HyPAS) version 2.4.0+*
    • Ricoh (SmartSDK) version 2.2.4+*
    • Sindoh (OpenAPI)
    • Sharp OSA (HTML Browser n2.0+)
    • Toshiba (e-Bridge Open Platform V3+)
    • Xerox (EIP 3.0+)
  • Print Scripting: Added a new print script function to determine whether or not a print job originated from the PaperCut Mobility Print application (inputs.job.isMobilityPrintJob). MAC-5327
  • Sharp OSA (HTML Browser n2.0+): PaperCut MF now supports compatible Sharp OSA 5.1+ devices with HTML Browser n2.0+. For more information, see the Copier / Device Integration section for Sharp OSA (HTML Browser n2.0+). MAC-5410

In Percolator:

  • Project Wollemi:
    • Added the On-premise OCR component to enable OCR to be performed using an on-site Windows system as an alternative to using PaperCut MF Cloud OCR. PC-15354
    • In the Admin web interface, on the new Capture tab, when On-premise OCR is selected we report the status of the installed OCR service. PC-15353
  • Auto Setup: Sharp devices can now be automatically set up from the Application Server rather than requiring manual steps at the device. PC-15132

Enhancements:

  • Integrated scanning:
    • Created a new page in the Admin user interface, called "Capture", where users now configure OCR and scan capture settings. PC-15070
    • Integrated Scanning OCR now supports on-premise scanning. This suits environments with appropriate infrastructure that have restrictions for using cloud services. ACA-677
    • OCR now supports over 100 languages. ACA-769
    • A new "Capture" tab has been added to the Admin web interface under Options. This tab provides the ability to configure the languages that can be used during OCR processing. You can select up to 10 languages.
      Note: If you're a PaperCut Cloud OCR service Percolator customer, after you upgrade to release 19.0, you need to re-select your languages. PC-15189
    • Improved scan delivery performance. PC-15127
    • PaperCut Cloud Services:
      • Added two data centres for hosting PaperCut Cloud Services in different regions. You are prompted to choose which one to use when you activate PaperCut Cloud Services. If you are already using PaperCut Cloud Services you can change the hosting region. ACA-622
      • When you activate PaperCut Cloud Services you can now choose the geographic region in which the service will be hosted: USA, Europe (Germany), or Australia. PC-14962
  • Application Server:
    • Improved Application Server performance by changing the maximum number of concurrent connections allowed from 8 K to 16 K per port (configurable in server.properties). PC-11001
    • Improved performance when under heavy load by adding a new connector for SQL Server 2016 to reduced database connection times. If you're using SQL Server 2016+ and upgrading to PaperCut MF 19.0, switch to the new connector. PC-14525
  • SNMPv3 can now be used for:
    • receiving toner notifications
    • retrieving toner level information (for supported printers)
    • 'device in error' retrieval
    • device configuration (for supported MFDs).
    PC-14922

Fixes:

  • macOS:
    • Improved performance by increasing the default number of concurrent connections allowed on 64-bit macOS servers. PC-14869
    • System default users are now excluded from the User List in the Admin web interface. PC-14810
  • Google Cloud Print: Improved performance by increasing the default value of gcp.http-timeout-seconds to 240. PC-15197
  • Email to Print: Fixed an issue that caused MS Word comments to not be printed. PC-15377
  • Azure AD: Fixed an issue on the User/Group Sync page that caused the "Accept self-signed certificate" option to be unavailable for Azure AD Secure LDAP (since 18.3.0). PC-14859
  • HP DesignJet Z-Series PostScript printer driver: Fixed an issue that caused the incorrect page size to be detected after the user had selected a custom paper size. PC-15387
  • Print Provider:
    • The Print Provider now has its own new release versioning. For this release it's 100.5.0.540. It's also included as part of this release. PC-15483
    • Fixed an issue that caused Print Provider to restart when analyzing PCL5 spool files generated by some printer drivers.PC-15524
  • In the Admin web interface, changed the MF/NG About page to show a link to the Support web form instead of the Support email. If an ASC or reseller overrides the support email, then their email stays displayed. PC-15267
  • Fixed an issue that caused a server error and logged the user out when they released a print job on a device that was currently in error and was configured to "Block the release of jobs when this device is in error". PC-15356
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Fiery tool to not retrieve jobs. Also added extra logging to show raw Fiery Box replies and to log when jobs are skipped due to zero printed pages. PC-15261
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the PaperCut NG/MF logs from indicating the reason for a failure when a notification message failed to send. PC-15042
  • Fixed an issue in Print Scripting that caused the "defaultChoice" option in dialogs to not accept values that were concatenated (e.g. `12 + ' Monkeys'`) (since 18.3.0). PC-15040
  • Fixed an issue where using the server.listen-interface in server.properties prevented server-command from working. PC-14778
  • Fixed an issue that caused certain printer drivers to print on the default paper size when Tabloid (11x17) paper size was selected. PC-14690
  • Fixed an issue that caused the incorrect language to be displayed on the Admin web interface > Device statistics tab. PC-15208
  • Fixed a problem that sometimes caused incorrect print outs, for example printing in color instead of grayscale, when using Google Cloud Print, Email to Print, or Web Print with some printer drivers. PC-15299
  • Database Schema for SQL server: Updated the database so SQL server can accept and store special characters from character sets other than Latin (for example, characters with umlauts or accents, .Arabic characters etc.). A database update is required.
    Important: SQL Server Express has a maximum database size limit of 10 GB and upgrading requires some free memory. So when you upgrade to Release 19.0, make sure the data in the PaperCut NG/MF database is less than 8 GB or the upgrade will fail. If the database is larger than 8 GB, contact us. PC-14602
  • Added an option in the Admin web interface on the Options > General page to display real-time activity warnings when the User Client is unavailable and requires user input. MAC-5385
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Application server to crash from storing too many failed scan jobs. Added two new config keys to manage how long failed scan jobs are stored:
    • system.scan.failed-maintenance-enabled (default: N)
    • system.scan.failed-days (default: 30) PC-9525
