PaperCut MF 15.1

PaperCut MF 15.1


This new version of PaperCut is feature packed and very exciting for new and existing users. There is a lot to talk about so let us get started.

First up we have support for two new embedded platforms. The Dell A4 C5765dn can now be embedded plus Xerox EIP 1.5 devices will now work with PaperCut MF. Many other platforms were updated with new features as well, be sure to read the release notes for the details.

The core server software has also been updated with various new enhancements. You can now track all changes made to users using the new Audit Logging tool.  As administration of PaperCut can be shared it is important to be able to audit changes made to users by admin staff.

For those working in secure print environments, you can make use of the document name hiding feature for those sensitive documents and make sure no one will be able to see what you are printing. Hiding document names wasn’t possible before 15.1 but can now be applied per print queue instead of per server.

Anyone upgrading to Windows Server 2012 and worrying about Microsoft dropping support for LPD you can continue to support the OSX and Linux machines connected to your print servers by using the new PaperCut LPD service.

As well as these there are a lot of other new features and enhancements in this release like (the much requested) image support for web print and email2print and a couple of new print script recipes for Google Cloud Print and custom job timeouts.
