If security compliance requires users to be at the printer to collect documents, you can now achieve this with Printix. On the new Secure print tab on the Settings page you can configure who Must print securely, who Must print later by default, and who Must scan QR code to release documents. These settings can be set for all users or selected users via group membership. Optionally you can check Allow direct print if offline, so users, who otherwise must print later, can print directly, while there is no connection to the Printix Cloud.
Scan QR code to Print all matching documents. This way you do not have to first select documents, as scanning the QR code will print all your anywhere documents and any later documents for the printer that match the scanned QR code.
When you release multiple documents, these are now printed together as one batch. This way, other users' documents will not be intermixed with your documents, and this reduces the risk of users mistakenly collecting other users' documents from the printer's output bin.
When printing from Chrome (Printix for Chromebook) it is now possible to select print methodPrint later. Not available if Print later is disabled, or if user Must print securely or Must print later by default.
Transparent group management. You can now see which users and print queues are added to the synchronized groups. The new Group properties page's Print queues tab shows the print queues the group has been added to. The Users tab shows the users that are a member of the group.
Discover printers is enhanced to support more printers, as it will now look for select data in both the Printer MIB and the Host Resources MIB.

In the event of deployed updated web pages, the Printix Administrator would not always detect this, and would open with a white screen with the Printix logo. Printix Administrator is now able to detect when updated web pages are available, and depending on the page context, the user may see a Please refresh dialog once or the browser does a silent refresh.
No longer necessary to request access to Printix Redirector, as it is now ready available.

This version of Printix Client (and other Printix software) is digitally signed with a new certificate because the previous certificate expired. This may cause Microsoft Windows Defender SmartScreen and similar software to prevent the Printix Client from installing unless you select More info and Run anyway. Once enough new installations have been made, the reputation of the certificate will become well-established and then Printix Client can be installed without these additional steps.
