- Printix Client now prevents creation of infinite copies of print queues. This is to deal with situations seen in the past when on some computers there was a native WSD print queue that pointed to a Printix printer (IP address). When Convert print queue was enabled, Printix Client would convert the WSD print queue to a Printix print queue. But on some computers the WSD print queue was recreated, but with (Copy 1) appended to the original name. Printix Client would then convert that print queue also, and a new WSD print queue would be created (Copy 2) and so forth.
- After sign in to Printix Client for Windows, the initial attempt to upload print drivers could sometimes fail because of a timing issue. If the initial attempt failed, the print driver would still be uploaded following a restart of the Printix Service or computer.
- A printer is registered as a color printer if it reports color toner levels. For printers that does not report toner levels, like Brother printers, this could result in a color printer not being registered as supporting color. Now Printix Client also checks if the printer reports a color impression counter larger than 0. If it does, the printer, like Brother MFC-L3770CDW, is registered as a color printer.
