In the latest round of our Vote for a Feature survey we’ve received thousands of votes. Thanks to all those who have contributed. We’ve listened to your feedback and polished off the top two most requested features:
Driver-less printing for wireless clients
Version 9.6 introduces a new solution to help manage wireless and laptop printing: Web Print. Web Print allows users to print by simply uploading documents using a standard web browser. No client software or driver installation is required. Web Print provides a simple way to enable printing for laptop, wireless and anonymous users without the overhead of installing printer drivers and managing server authentication.
Printers can now be renamed via the admin interface. This can be useful after renaming a print queue in the OS or after migrating a print queue to a new system.
Another highly requested feature added in this release is print job refund management. If a user finds that some or all of their job wasn’t printed, e.g. due to a paper jam or toner problem, they can now easily request a refund via the user web interface. Administrators can be notified of pending refund requests via email and attend to them via the admin interface.
