PaperCut NG Mac Update – 6.2.3896

I just finished testing and unloading the latest PaperCut NG Mac release. The latest version number is 6.2.3896. This release ticks of the latest of the “must fix” bugs and pending successful feedback, we’ll make this the first official non-beta release some time next week.

The main changes in this release are:

  • Improvements to the speed an reliability of the LDAP/OpenDirectory interface on very large networks. Large queries are now batched in retrieval blocks of 900 records.
  • Much improved popup performance on busy print queues. PaperCut now hooks into CUPS at a lower level earlier in the print flow process. This means that the popup (account selection or authentication dialog) will now appear as soon as the job enters the queue rather than when the job is ready to print.

Full Steam Ahead

Hello, world! I’m Tom, the latest addition to the PaperCut development team. Over the last month or so I’ve undergone a lightning induction into the world of programming at PaperCut and the many technologies used – Java, Tapestry, Hibernate, Spring, Jetty, JasperReports, Derby, PostgreSQL, Squid and many others, not to mention developing for Linux, Mac and Windows – an exciting prospect for any graduate!

You may have already noticed some of my additions to PaperCut NG – some new reports including the ‘detailed summary’ reports that show a breakdown by page size, the ‘report based on above data’ component, regex document name filters, and some new web service and server-command calls. I hope to be adding even more features in future, as well as improving our web site. Is there something that you would like to see added or improved? Send an email to the development team and let us know!

Even with the recent first public testing release of Internet Control for PaperCut NG, the fantastic feedback we’ve been getting with the PaperCut NG for Mac testing programme, and recent improvements for running PaperCut in unauthenticated environments, we’ve still got big things on the way. Here’s a quick look at what you can expect in the coming months:

  • PaperCut NG 7 – just around the corner!
  • Features from PaperCut ChargeBack coming to NG.
  • All those little updates that make the software that little bit easier or nicer to use.

We’ve also aggregated the developer blogs to one location, so please update your links if have been following along.

Happy to be on board with PaperCut and looking forward to hearing from you all in the future.


– Tom
