Fixes

  • EPSON SC-P6000/7000/8000/9000, PX-H7000/9000 Series printer driver: Fixed an issue that caused the following problems:
    • incorrect number of pages and copies
    • page size was incorrectly detected as A4 or Letter if printed on some page sizes that wide-format plotter supports
    PC-16397
  • Canon imagePROGRAF printer driver:
    • Fixed an issue that caused number of pages and page size to be tracked incorrectly when printing to a page size other than A4.
      Limitation:
      • The charging type "by paper area" doesn't work with this driver since we cannot identify the paper width.
      • The page size is still identified as A4 if printing from Google Chrome's print menu (rather than the system dialog) to a page size not used by a general office-use printer such as A0 and B1. This is a limitation of the Google Chrome and printer driver combination.

15 November 2018 - PaperCut MF 18.3.2 (Build 47391)

For a snapshot view of 18.3 features, see what's New and Noteworthy.

New Features:

  • Google Cloud Directory (G Suite and Google Cloud Identity):
    • Sync users from Google Cloud Directory, which supports both G Suite and Google Cloud Identity.
    • Users can now authenticate using their Google credentials on all PaperCut interfaces.
    • Google Cloud Directory can be configured as either a primary or secondary sync source, and is fully compatible to run alongside another sync source such as Active Directory, giving administrators a flexible migration path.
    • You can now configure a 'Sign in with Google' button to display on the User web interface, Admin web interface and Mobility Print on Chromebooks. This lets users sign in to PaperCut MF without retyping their credentials.
  • Mobility Print on Chromebooks: Users can now click a 'Sign in with Google' button instead of typing their credentials.
  • Integrated Scanning:
    • Text-searchable documents in the public percolator for OCR:
      • Users can now create text-searchable documents from any type of Scan Action, to easily find important information in a document. DOCX and PDF text-searchable outputs are supported.
      • Added the ability for Scan Actions that create text-searchable documents to automatically detect French, German, and Spanish languages. Detection of multiple languages in the same document is supported.
      Note: An active Premium Upgrade Assurance (PUA) subscription is required to use this feature.
  • Change print job settings on Kyocera: The ability to change the settings of held print jobs is now available on Kyocera devices.

Enhancements:

  • Installation: When installing PaperCut MF, you can now skip the step to select a user/group sync source and configure that separately later. This speeds up the installation.
  • Integrated Scanning:
    • Added the ability to start a new scan job from the Scan More or Finish screen, retaining the current scan job's settings and account selection attributes.
      This applies to:
      • Fuji Xerox ApeosPort V+
      • HP (OXP)
      • Xerox (EIP 3.0+)
      • Toshiba (e-Bridge Open Platform V3+)
    • Added the ability to configure (on the Admin web interface Scan Actions page) up to three output file types that a user can choose from at the MFD.
    • Some of PaperCut MF's advanced Integrated Scanning features, such as Scan to Cloud Storage and creating text searchable documents, make use of "PaperCut Cloud Services". Document processing in the cloud takes away the hassle of managing the performance of local infrastructure.
      Note: An active Premium Upgrade Assurance (PUA) subscription is required to use this feature.
  • Security
    • Port 9195: PaperCut MF now supports both self-signed and CA-signed SSL/ HTTPS SHA2 certificates on port 9195.
      This applies to:
      • Konica Minolta (OpenAPI)
      • Sindoh (OpenAPI)
    • Port 80: Tightened security on port 80 when used for payment gateways to ensure unnecessary information is not included in the http header.
    • Site Server: You can now specify a list of IP addresses or subnets that are allowed to submit information to the PaperCut MF Application Server. This is configured in Options > Advanced > Security section (or using the auth.site.allowed-addresses config key).
  • Admin web interface: In 'Options' there is now a 'Tools' tab. The Tools page lists all of the third-party systems that PaperCut MF directly integrates with.
  • Web services API:
    • getPrinterProperty() now supports a 'printer-id' option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option improves the usefulness of the health monitoring API.
    • getSharedAccountProperty() now supports an 'account-id' option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option is useful when setting the printer property advanced-config.override-no-popup-charge-shared-id using setPrinterPropertyMethod().

Fixes:

  • Security:
    • It is no longer possible to log in to the Site Server using the locally defined Admin credentials. Admin credentials from the PaperCut MF Application Server must be used.
    • Fixed an issue that incorrectly included sensitive authentication information in debug logs.
