Easier print server migration: The migration from using on premise print servers to using the Printix Cloud Print Management Service has just been made easier. Now, Printix will automatically inherit your choice of print drivers, migrate your print driver configurations, and preserve your print queue names. Just install Printix Client on your print server. Once you have fully deployed Printix you can remove the obsolete print server(s).
Multiple print queues support: Support for multiple print queues per printer. In Printix Administrator you can open a view of the printer's print queues and from there open the print queue properties, choice of print driver and manage (Windows) print driver configurations. Printix Client automatically reports back print queues it finds, but only the first one is active.
Support for macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
Printix library of print drivers: You can now add print drivers for Mac to your Printix library of print drivers. This can be used to add print drivers that are not published through Apple.
Sign in with Google:You can now start afree Printix trial with your G Suite account. Google authentication is automatically enabled and configured.
In the Setup Assistant you can click the X in the top right corner and proceed directly to Open your Dashboard. This gives you the possibility to postpone the download of the Printix Client software.
On the Settings page we have introduced a new Print Queue Naming option: Printer name without printer ID. Select this if you do not want users to see the printer ID as part of the printer name.
From the Printer properties page you can click Download CSV report to get a file with the printer's meter readings and toner levels.
Support for SATO printers, such as SATO CL4NX.
Support for Zebra printers, such as Zebra GK420t.
If the first computer you install on has for example two network adapters (LAN and WiFi), then an additional Network2 is created with the gateway of the other network adapter.
If you install on a print server it will automatically discover printers, and if the print server is connected to one or more Unknown networks, then these networks are automatically added and named NetworkN, NetworkN+1, ...
Active Directory authentication: If you have multiple networks you can now specify which network Active Directory authentication requests should be sent to. Before they were always sent to the default network. On the Networks page, the text (Default) appears at the end of the name of the network that is the default. Example: Network1 (Default).
Printer ID signs: The name of the printer is now inserted below the printer ID on the printer ID sign.
Printix Client for Mac: The Printix Anywhere printer now supports color and more paper sizes, including A3. To take effect remove and add the anywhere printer on the computer.
Printix Client for Mac: Faster detection of network changes. Before it could take up to 30 minutes for the Printix Client on the Mac to become aware of a network change.
Reduced response time to applications asking about the capabilities of Printix printers. Issue seen with Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision). Report creation was delayed for 90 - 120 seconds when a Printix printer was selected. This delay has now been eliminated.
Improvements to make the Printix Service always start.
