Minor fixes for Apple Mac version of PaperCut NG

We’ve just release a new Mac release – version 6.2. 3782

I made a one line coding error in the last release that broke the message/event notification system. The new release has this addressed along with an enhancement to user authentication. The Mac’s PAM module accepts login either via the user’s username or via the full/real name. PaperCut uses the username as the unique user identifier and attempting to log into the system using the “real name” caused identity confusion. The latest release will only allow the user to login using their username (short name).

Thanks to the Mac testers that brought these bugs to my attention.

If all goes well with this release, we believe we’ll be in a position to call the Mac version “final” some time early next month.

New Mac release with Popup Authentication and other features

Just a quick post to let all the Mac testers know that we’ve release a new version today. It’s been a long-time-coming! We’ve done quite a bit of work on this release with a few core features such as:

  • New “popup authentication” – great for networks running non-authenticated systems (i.e. Personal Mac laptops)
  • Printers are now automatically registered with CUPS and with PaperCut. This reduces the setup steps.
  • Improved client functionality.
  • Fixed a crash-bug in the client.
  • Fixed a CUPS copy-count integration issue.

Existing testers can upgrade using an install-over-the-top procedure.
