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.
