  • HSTS:
    • Fixed an issue that prevented HSTS from being disabled when "Redirect to HTTPS/SSL if available" is disabled.

    • Fixed an issue that occasionally prevented users from being able to log in when "Block the release of jobs when this device is in error" is enabled.

Other Notes:

  • This release does NOT contain a database upgrade.
  • Devices marked with * require installing an updated version of the embedded software to access new features and fixes.

16 May 2017 - PaperCut MF 17.1.1

For a snapshot view of 17.1.1 features, see what's New and Noteworthy.

Enhancements:

  • Mobility Print: Continued improvements including:
    • Allow Mobility Print to connect through a Site Server when the Application Server is offline.
    • Support for per job authentication. Per job authentication mode enforces authentication for every print job.
    • Support for subnet based printer filtering. This allows you to provide visibility to a subset of printers depending on a user's subnet.
    • Support for Mobility Print on private cloud.
    • Support for .local domains to simplify configuration on macOS and iOS platforms.

    For more detailed information about bug fixes, see Mobility Print Release Notes.

  • Watermarking and digital signatures: Watermarking and digital signatures are powerful capabilities that enhance printing security by allowing identification of the source of any printed document. Enhancements to the existing functionality include:
    • The addition of full page watermarking for PCL6 and PostScript print jobs. This allows you to print a repeating watermark across the entire page, making it impossible for someone to remove it without destroying the document. Note: If you have secondary servers (Print Providers), you must upgrade them all for this functionality to work.
    • The default text used in the printed watermark now includes the %signature% variable. This prints a digital signature on each page, which can be used to identify the exact job in the job log.
  • Secure Print / Find-Me configuration: Enhancements to Secure Print and Find-Me now make it easier to find printers and get your configuration right the first time. Changes include:
    • Added the ability to filter the source queue list by printer name on the Create Device page and Device Details page.
    • The source queue list on the Create Device page and Device Details page now groups queues by Virtual with Hold/Release, Physical with Hold/Release, and No Hold/Release.
    • The Secure Print Release and Find-Me settings on the Device Details page are now contained in a separate Print Release section.
    • Added the ability to filter the Find-Me destination queue list based on the print queue name on the Device Details page.
    • Improved the clarity and detail of error messages displayed when Job Redirection is not configured correctly.
    • Ability to copy Job Redirection Settings from one printer to another.
  • HSTS: Support for HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), forcing browsers to connect only via HTTPS.
  • Web Print: Improved performance when printing multiple copies of a document. Web Print now collates all copies into a single print job resulting in less network traffic, decreased load on the Application Server, and faster printing time. Note: You must upgrade ALL Web Print Sandbox servers in your organization for this functionality to work. For more details, click here.
  • The What's Next gadget on the Admin web interface dashboard can now be hidden.
  • Improved database performance when user accounts are retrieved. This speeds up a range of functions such as logging in and printing.

Fixes:

  • Security enhancements:
    • Logging in to the Admin web interface and the User web interface now require the use of cookies. For security reasons, the use of session IDs in URLs when cookies are disabled is no longer permitted by default.

    • Fixed an issue allowing admins who do not have App Log view permissions to see the App Log details on the Admin web interface dashboard.
    • Improve security controls on upload of scanned documents.
    • Web Print: Increased security around the upload of documents to a Web Print server.
  • Secure Print Release:
    • Fixed an issue where print jobs deleted from the Windows print queue were not removed from the Release Station interface.
    • Changed the default release mode of the standard Release Station to Secure instead of ReleaseAny. The Secure release mode allows users to only release their own print jobs.
  • Mobility Print: Fixed an issue preventing users from authenticating when a published printer had paper size restrictions.
  • Fixed an issue preventing an admin from viewing more than the first page of refunds on the Printers > Refunds page.
  • Fixed an issue causing analytics files to be incorrectly sent to PaperCut when the "Share system usage data" option is disabled. Note: These files did NOT collect any data.

  • Print scripting: Fixed an issue that occurred when 'action.user.onCompletionSaveProperty' was set to null, causing jobs to not be logged.
  • Linux systemd systems: Now automatically allow a sufficient number of files to be opened, which means less manual configuration for larger implementations.
  • PCL6 driver: Fixed an issue causing an incorrect page count when duplex printing from Internet Explorer.
  • Canon LBP842C: Fixed an iOS printing issue that caused an incorrect page count.
  • Epson SC-T7200D ESC/P2 driver: Improved page count accuracy on macOS print servers.
  • Watermarking with PCL6 drivers: Fixed an issue where "Bottom of page" watermarking on landscape pages did not print.
  • Mac and Linux: Removed an unnecessary error message when running some command line scripts.
  • iOS printing: Fixed an issue preventing printing from iOS devices after upgrading the print server to MacOS Sierra 10.12.

New Features:

  • Prevent jobs from being released to a printer reporting an error

    PaperCut MF gives administrators the ability to choose whether or not they want to allow users to release jobs from supported devices reporting an error, alleviating user concern and reducing Administrators' reactive work created by a printer in error.

    Supported devices that can block job release are:

    • Ricoh SDK/J and Smart Operation Panel
      • Gestetner
      • Lanier
      • Nashuatec
    • Kyocera
      • Triumph Adler

      • HP OSA
      • Toshiba eConnect
    • Samsung
    • Lexmark
      • Dell Embedded LeSF

    Administrators can also choose to block jobs from being released from Standard Release Stations and all web-based Release Station interfaces (including the Admin web interface > Jobs Pending Release, User web interface > Jobs Pending Release, Release Manager interface, and the Mobile Release interface).

    Note: The non-embedded Release Stations rely on the Operating System print queue state, and the experience might vary depending on the printer and driver in use. Provide feedback on your experience to support@papercut.com.

  • Customizable start dates for running reports

    You can now configure the start day or date for your weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly scheduled reporting periods, using a set of new config keys. The Reports > Schedule / Email Reports page displays the date on which the next report will run.
