18.3.2

Build 47391

15 Nov, 2018

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.
    • Passwords are now redacted or removed (as appropriate) from the diagnostics zip file.
    • Unsupported HTTP requests are now actively rejected.
    • Mac and Linux with CUPS: Fixed an issue that could cause authentication information to show in the CUPS printer URI.
  • Find Me printing: Simplified the workflow for setting up Find Me printing.

    • When creating a new device (Devices > Create Device), selecting “Enable print release” now also displays the “Enable find me printing support” option.
    • When creating a new device (Devices > Create Device) or when editing an existing device (Device > External Device List > Device Details > Print Release), selecting “Enable print release > Virtual with Hold/Release” now also selects the “Enable find me printing support” option.
  • Load balancing: Fixed an issue that prevented load balancing from consistently printing to the least busy printer.

  • Windows Print Provider: Added ‘Remote Desktop Easy Print’, ‘PDF Architect’, and ’eDocPrintPro’ to the list of ignored virtual printers.

  • PaperCut Print Provider: On a Mac OS of High Sierra or later (using PaperCut CUPS filter) caused printing to fail for Canon and Epson printers.

  • iPrint: Fixed an issue with iPrint where it would run only on OES 2018. It now runs on iPrint Appliances and other OES versions.

  • macOS Mojave (CUPS): Fixed an issue in macOS Mojave causing a short delay in the display and monitoring of printers after installation, and when a new printer is subsequently added.

  • macOS and Linux: Fixed an issue that caused Google Cloud Print and Email to Print to fail, and occasionally Find-Me printing to fail.

  • Moneris eSELECT Plus Payment Gateway: Added an option to set the locale to English or French via the ext-payment-gateway-moneris.properties file (moneris.lang=).

  • Heartland Payment Gateway: Added an option in the ext-payment-gateway-heartland.properties file to improve performance in large environments using Load Balancers, where Heartland on Demand Transfer is enabled (heartland.server.load-balancer).

  • Device log uploads: Restricted the upload of logs to be only from known device addresses, and added a maximum log file size limit.

  • Global Print Driver (version 100.2.0.0): Released the latest version of Microsoft WHQL certified PaperCut Global PostScript driver. Included a minor fix so users cannot select to print duplex on a device that has no duplex unit installed.

  • Ricoh PostScript printer driver: Fixed an issue that caused an incorrect page size to be reported when users selected some standard paper sizes, such as JIS B5, or a custom paper size.

  • Canon UFR II printer driver: Fixed an issue that caused grayscale conversions to not be applied when printing via Google Cloud Print.
