Printix for Chromebook version 0.0.5.17 (Beta test).
Printix for Chromebook (Beta test). You must use your G Suite domain's business address with Gmail. Available as an extension for Google Chrome version 63 or later. Allows users to select Printix printers that support PDF and are configured to print Via the cloud. The document is uploaded to the Printix Cloud and then forwarded to a Printix Client computer on the printer's network. The document remains secure during the transfer over the Internet as the document itself and the communication are both encrypted.
On a per group membership basis you can now control these print queue settings: Exclusive access and Add print queue automatically. You will find these on the Groups tab on the Print queue properties page. To better handle organizations with 1000s of groups, you are now indirectly selecting which groups should be synchronized as you Add groups to a print queue to enable Exclusive access and/or Add print queue automatically for the members of those groups. Only the selected groups are synchronized, and only changes are synchronized.
Support for Google groups. Use Google groups to control access to print queues and deploy these based on users' group membership.
The Printers page now loads faster and support these Filters: Network and Created. Use the Created filter to see printers added within the previous 3, 6, 12 or 24 hours. You can sort on ID, Printer name, Created and Location.
Printix Cloud now communicates directly with the Printix Client on each computer. Before communication was via select Printix Clients that acted as proxy. As a result, configuration data changes are now being pushed almost without delay to Printix Clients. Furthermore, documents can now be released from a computer on an Unknown network. The new version no longer uses TCP port 21337.
Working with print drivers and print driver configurations is now easier with the new controls on the Drivers tab.
Because the drivers uploaded to your Printix driver store are compatible across the different macOS editions (10.13, ..., 10.8), the Drivers page now just has one generic macOS.
On macOS the MacService is now renamed to the more appropriate PrintixService. That way, a search on Printix in the macOS Activity Monitor will show both processes: Printix Client and Printix Service.
When you release anywhere documents, your choice of printers is now filtered to show only printers reachable from the computer where the document resides. If the selected printer does not support PDF, you may be asked to Select print queue (if there is more than one).
Unexpected appearance of the Printix Client Sign in dialog. Under special and rare conditions, where the computer had been without network connection for at least 10 minutes, the user's access token would unintentionally expire, and this again would cause Printix Client to unexpectedly present the Sign in dialog to the user. If the user closed the dialog, without signing in, printing to the computer's Printix printers would stop working. Printing would start working again when the user signed in to Printix Client.
Changes to a user's group membership is now picked up dynamically by the Printix Client.
Convert print queues per network had reversed logic. If you checked Yes, it would not convert, and if you clicked No, it would convert. The global setting worked as intended.
During conversion of print queues multiple undesired copies of print queues could be created if Printer name without printer ID was selected.
An uninstall of Printix Client now converts all Printix print queues back to normal network print queues. Before print queues only got restored if: 1) The print queue pointed to a printer on the same network as the computer, or 2) The print queue was configured to print via the cloud.
On the Print queues page, Filter: Computers 0 - X, sometimes appeared unintentionally.
If TLS 1.0 was disabled on the computer, Printix Client would be stuck in: Connecting to service. Seen at customer with Windows Server 2008 R2.
Printix Redirector now also works when documents are printed via the cloud.
Print queues pointing to Printix printers are now registered for both Windows and macOS. Before print queues were not registered for macOS, unless they were printing through Printix.
Printix for Chromebook does not support printing multiple copies.
Printers registered before 2017-10-17 are listed without a Created date on the Printers page in Printix Administrator.
On Windows, when you open the Control Panel, Features and Programs and click Printix Client the Product version is that of the initially installed Printix Client.
