Novell OES Linux beta program update – due next week

Another update for the sites participating in the Novell OES Linux beta program. It looks like we’ll have to wait a few more weeks to get proper print quota on iPrint. The iPrint update required to run PaperCut will now not be available until next week. Novell will be undertaking the last validation tests on […]

Novell OES Linux beta program update – new iPrint version pending

Last week we announced the start of the official beta testing period for PaperCut on Novell. Novell is our last remaining platform so it’s great to see this finally in beta. We already have close to 50 sites that have contacted us expressing eagerness to participate in the beta testing program. There is a lot […]

Who’s using PaperCut? PepsiCo, HP and Dad!

Since we release our free print logging program a few years back its been a hit, with hundreds of thousands of downloads. Every now and then we receive a thank you email or a short story about how people are finding it useful. One user recently wrote to us to thank us for helping him […]

PaperCut Print Logger now in Spanish

Wow! On the back of the Italian translation of PaperCut Print Logger, Alessia and her team have translated PaperCut Print Logger into Spanish. The translation has been done by a Spanish girl in her class under the supervision from their teacher who can also speak Spanish. On behalf of all the Spanish users of PaperCut, […]

If an infinite number of monkeys…

A PaperCut user recently reported an unfortunate situation. The PaperCut Pre-Paid/TopUp Card Wizard generated a card with an inappropriate random card number. The first reaction of our developers was to have a bit of a laugh – what are the chances of that? – followed by some serious discussions on the best way to fix […]

New Site Search

A number of visitors have suggested we implement an improved search system for the Knowledge Base and Manual. This project is now complete and we have a new unified site search that searches over the KB, manual, blog, and the site as a whole (check out the search link on the top right-hand corner of […]

PaperCut Print Logger now in Italian

A big thanks to Alessia and her team for their work in translating PaperCut Print Logger into Italian. Alessia and her team undertook the work as part of a software localization course at San Pio V University in Italy. It’s great to see Universities focusing some of their attention on real-world projects. Practical projects where […]

The evolution of the Tiger to the Leopard

We finally got version 8 out the door today and with it comes Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard support. The changes to support Leopard consisted of a sum total of 2001 lines – that is, 2000 lines of documentation and 1 line of code! Yes! That’s right. Only one line of source code needed addressing. […]

PaperCut Print Logger update 1.2

I rolled out a new release of the free PaperCut Print Logger utility today – version 1.2. The release includes support for a number of new printer models as well as improved page/plot size detection on some HPGL based plotters. I’ve also updated the URLs to point to the domain.

Having an (environmental) impact!

We all spend a lot of time talking about environmental issues here in the office. I suppose partly because global warming is the “topic of the month” (really century!), and partly because we work on software designed initially with an environmental objective – that is cutting down on paper!

PaperCut Print Logger – always improving!

You all have probably noticed the PaperCut NG 7.2 and PaperCut ChargeBack 7.1 releases by now. We’ve had lots of good feedback about the new scheduled/emailed reports feature. This was Tom’s project so he deserves all the credit. We’re planning another update in the next two weeks with some more new features including an easier […]

PaperCut Print Logger FAQ

PaperCut Print Logger is now quite popular. The downside to the increased popularity is the increasing number of support questions. We’ve never had any official documentation for Print Logger so I thought I’d better at least write up an FAQ. I’ve taken the most common questions and put together a list here. If you haven’t […]

PaperCut NG Mac Update – 6.3.4061

We’re now very close to the final Apple Mac release. Our target is to call it final when we release PaperCut NG version 7.0 in two weeks time. The latest Mac update adds support for printers that host their drivers inside the PrintJobMgr. Some Epson and Canon inkjets don’t provide a standard CUPS driver and […]
