It’s January and that means a major new release. PaperCut 12.0 adds a popular (as voted by our customers in vote for a feature ) new twist: automatic conversion to duplex and grayscale . Previously PaperCut could only disallow all single sided (simplex) and color printing jobs on a printer, but now jobs can be automatically converted to duplex and/or grayscale. For instance always force students to print duplex or use conditional scripting to automatically convert all Outlook email messages to grayscale. This has been a significant investment of effort by PaperCut Software developers and we are really pleased to release it to our customers.
Other notable new “doodads” include:
- a new report, Executive Summary . This gives, in a single page, an overview of some useful metrics about printers, users and their jobs
- a new refresh to many of our icons and end user web interface so that we look less retro
- custom dashboard widget . Allows an administrator to add a link to an external application for easy access from the administration dashboard
- some new scripts
- new and improved language translations
and many other features and fixes too numerous to mention here. Please refer to the release history for full details.
