  • New Behaviour for Mobile Release page /mr/(printerIdentifier) search.

New behaviour is that if your search matches more than one, it displays the printer list page pre-filtered to your search, if your search term is a full printer name that matches a single printer, then it will take you straight to the printer’s job page as it did previously.
