Wow, it’s been a very long time since my last post… I am alive! 🙂 We’ve been really busy over the past few months making PaperCut NG even better, and just released version 6.1. It adds a number of often requested features like LDAP, but some of the best improvements have been under the covers […]
All those who keep up-to-date with our news page will see we’ve just released PaperCut NG for Linux. From my perspective this has been a very interesting project.
