    ExtremeZ-IP Print Server Version History (5.1.3 and earlier)

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.1.3 (Released: March 2008)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Attempting to add printers through ‘Print & Fax’ preferences panel in Leopard 10.5.2 and greater will fail with all earlier versions of the Mac OS X printing components. Existing printers on client machines should be unaffected, but this may change with later releases of Leopard. [#9835] [5.1.3x05]


    * ExtremeZ-IP will now allow broadcast of print queues over the Appletalk protocol in the MacJapanese character set if the queue name cannot be fully converted into the MacRoman set. [#9847] [5.1.3x04]

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.1.2 (Released: January 2008)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * ExtremeZ-IP will now allow administrators to automatically add an exception to the Windows Firewall. [#9415] [5.1.2x04]


    * ExtremeZ-IP will now output crash dumps directly into the application folder. [#9443] [5.1.2x04]

    BUG FIXES:

    * Improved performance of the Zidget in environments with hundreds of print queues. [#9417] [5.1.2x06]


    * Fixed a problem where upgrading from a print trial to a licensed version of the print server can fail to automatically restart the print server. [#8844] [5.1.2x04]
    * Print Processing Log now sorts jobs in a case-insensitive manner. [#1543] [5.1.2x04]
    * Direct (non-spooling) print queues now automatically reject jobs received over LPR. [#8788] [5.1.2x04]
    * ExtremeZ-IP print queues using the LPR output method now support sending jobs over LPR to a remote queue whose name contains Unicode characters. [#9378] [5.1.2x04]

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.1.1 (Released: November 2007)
    BUG FIXES:

    * Added complete support for queue names containing Unicode characters. ExtremeZ-IP print queues containing these characters can now be properly discovered and added using all discovery methods (Bonjour, Appletalk, HTTP/Zidget), and these queues can have their PPDs downloaded and be printed to properly without error. [#8526] [#8913] [#8940] [5.1.1x01]


    * Fixed a problem where ExtremeZ-IP could crash at startup if the print queue registry settings were invalid. [#9337] [5.1.1x06]
    * Fixed a problem where queues added via the Zidget would be automatically reshared over Bonjour on Leopard clients. [#9231] [5.1.1x04]

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.1 (Released: October 2007)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Introduced the ExtremeZ-IP Zidget: a Dashboard widget that helps you easily locate ExtremeZ-IP file servers and printers on your network.. [#8520] [5.1x21]


    * Added support for IPv6 to the service. The service can now communicate with remote printers over IPv6 or IPv4. [#7863] [5.1x05]
    * The number of print queues is no longer bound by available memory of the server. In previous version of ExtremeZ-IP, the service was limited to several hundred print queues due to high memory and thread usage per queue. ExtremeZ-IP 5.1 has been qualified to run with 1500 print queues, and having this large number of print queues does not consume a large amount of memory or CPU resources. In addition, the file server will now be more responsive when the print server is under heavy load. [#7852] [5.1x06]
    * Added capability for print queues to be renamed via the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator. Any jobs already in the queue will be processed after the rename, but jobs being received to the queue may be transferred to the new queue. [#8168] [5.1x06]
    * Added capability to specify a text based description and location for each print queue, and display this information in the Print Queues window of the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator. [#8169] [5.1x06]
    * Added a warning to the Windows Event Log if ExtremeZ-IP is configured to have more than 100 print queues and Bonjour or Appletalk broadcasting of print queues is enabled. Group Logic does not suggest that broadcasting of print queues be enabled with more than 100 print queues because this can make printer discovery very difficult to navigate for clients. [#8150] [5.1x05]
    * Added capability to suspend and restart print queues using the EZIPUTIL command-line utility. [#8885] [5.1x39]
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed a potential crash of the ExtremeZ-IP service when a queue was configured with a PPD file with inconsistent line endings. [#8843] [5.1x37]


    * Fixed job cancellation button in the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator so that hung jobs can be promptly cancelled. [#8369] [5.1x13]
    * Fixed a problem where print queues whose name contain open or close parentheses would not have their PPD files automatically downloaded by the ExtremeZ-IP Print Components. [#8839] [5.1x37]
    * Removing a print queue now causes any jobs persisted to disk to be removed. This prevents the jobs from "reappearing" if a queue with the same name is created at a later date. [#8316] [5.1x11]
    * Fixed a problem where print jobs could hang if the remote printer refused to send an LPR error code but the TCP connection was kept alive. Stuck print jobs are now taken offline after 5 minutes. [#7959] [5.1x10]
    * Fixed a problem where the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator would lock up for 10-15 seconds and CPU usage would spike if a print queue was added when the service was already configured to have hundreds of print queues. [#7712] [5.1x06]
    * Fixed an issue where the service would take a very long time to startup if the server contained a print queue that had print jobs persisted to disk when the service was last shutdown. Jobs are persisted to disk if the queue did not get to processing those jobs before the service was shutdown. [#5528] [5.1x06]
    * Limited logging of certain queue initialization errors (such as non-specified PPDs or errors initializing Appletalk) in order to cut down on messages put in the Windows Event Log when the service is configured with a very large number of print queues. [#8263] [5.1x09]
    * Reduced the frequency that the Print Queues window of the Administrator refreshes in order to cut down on CPU used by the Administrator when a large number of print queues are configured. [#8264] [5.1x09]
    * Fixed a problem where the username could fail to display properly in the logging of a Print Accounting queue. [#8850] [5.1x39]

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.0.2 (Released: July 2007)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Improved handling of print jobs that do not succesfully print. Failed jobs can no longer take the entire queue offline. These failed jobs will be automatically retried at a configurable interval, and optionally deleted after a certain amount of time. [#8149] [5.0.2x09]


    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed a problem where the "jobs offline" counter of a print queue could become invalid if jobs were automatically deleted after being offline for too long. In these cases, the counter would register as 4 billion. [#8019] [5.0.2x03]




    ExtremeZ-IP 5.0.1 (Released: April 2007)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added support for performance counters that are specific to individual ExtremeZ-IP print queues. Information on "Print Jobs Offline", "Job Errors", "Total Jobs Printed" and "Total Pages Printed" as well as a counter indicating whether a queue is on- or offline can now be viewed for individual print queues, or (as before) for all queues in total. These new counters appear in the new "ExtremeZ-IP Print Queues" object and can be tracked with tools such as Perfmon and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM). [#7822] [5.0.1x01]


    * Added the ability for administrators to automatically replicate shared Windows printers as ExtremeZ-IP print queues by clicking a single button in the Print Queues Window. [#7828] [5.0.1x01]
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed a problem where printing jobs whose name contained question marks could cause a crash. This issue was present in ExtremeZ-IP 5.0 only. [#7849] [5.0.1x03]


    * Fixed a problem where print jobs whose names contained characters that are illegal in Windows filenames (e.g. '?' and ':') would fail to display properly in the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator. This issue was present in all versions of ExtremeZ-IP through 5.0. [#1541] [5.0.1x01]

    ExtremeZ-IP 5.0 (Released: February 2007)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added Print Accounting features to the standard Print Server. Print Accounting allows administrators to

    * Require end-users to enter accounting codes before printing, right from within the Mac OS X print dialog

    * Track and allocate costs incurred when using expensive printing resources such as color printers or proofers

    * Validate codes immediately against a centralized list to enable printing

    * Log jobs to a central repository, which is then exportable in a tab-delimited format

    * Track key characteristics in each log such as job name, user name, time and date of printing, number of copies, page size, number of pages, size of job in bytes and the print queue that was used

    * Configure account codes in real time with no client side changes; configure codes with customizable labels control whether codes must be validated against the server; and control whether the list of codes are displayed to clients

    * Automatically update validation codes and export job logs through programming interfaces
    * Added support for performance counters. ExtremeZ-IP publishes counter data so that the status of ExtremeZ-IP print queues can be tracked with tools such as Perfmon and Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM). Some examples of available counters are "Print Queues Offline", "Bytes Printed/sec" and "Total Pages Printed".
    * Improved support for handling errors when printing to an LPR print queue. Non-fatal errors (such as the LPR printer having a full queue) now cause the job to go offline but do not disable the entire print queue. These offline jobs will be automatically retried until they successfully print. More information on this new feature and its configuration options can be found in the user manual.
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed a problem where printers supporting Print Accounting through Direct Print would hang when print jobs were submitted that had either missing or invalid print accounting codes. [#6808] [5.0x138]


    * Fixed a problem where printing jobs with titles containing backslashes could cause the print server to hang. [#7538] [5.0x128]
    * Fixed a problem where printing many jobs could cause ExtremeZ-IP to leak handles. [#7710] [5.0x136]
    * Fixed a problem where an LPR print queue could hang, forcing a restart of the service to reenable the queue. [#7737] [5.0x137]
    ExtremeZ-IP 4.2.4 (Released: October 2006)
    BUG FIXES:

    * Enabled ServerCombinesLPRPackets feature by default. [#7198] [4.2.4x01]



    ExtremeZ-IP 4.2.3 (Released: August 2006)
    BUG FIXES:

    * Added ServerCombinesLPRPackets registry key to fix a problems where jobs would fail to spool to certain LPR printers. See the help file for more details. [#6685] [4.2.3x04]




    ExtremeZ-IP 4.2.2 (Released: April 2006)
    * No changes to printing.


    ExtremeZ-IP 4.2.1 (Released: February 2006)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added support for Intel based Macintosh systems.[#6181] [4.2.1x03]


    * Combined Print and Print Accounting components into a single installer. [4.2.1x03]

    ExtremeZ-IP 4.2 (Released: February 2006)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added support for automatic Bonjour printer discovery. [#5839] [4.2x30]


    BUG FIXES:

    * Print Queue names are now case-insensitive. Attempting to create a Print Queue that has the same name as an existing queue, differing only in case, will be rejected with a warning that a queue with that name already exists. [#6078][4.2x33]


    * Fixed a bug where ExtremeZ-IP would fail to read job names containing accented (e.g. "äöü") and other Unicode characters properly. [#5766] [4.1.1x14]

    ExtremeZ-IP 4.1.1 (Released: December 2005)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Fixed a bug with Microsoft Word running under Tiger where the Print Accounting Dialog was not responding to the mouse. Other applications under Tiger might also have exhibited this behavior. [#5812] [4.1.1x10]



    ExtremeZ-IP 4.1 (Released: October 2005)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Print queues configured to forward jobs to a remote LPR queue can now send to a non-default LPR port. [#5434] [4.1x08]


    * Print processing logs exported through EZIPUTIL now honor the IPPrintLogFormat and PrintAccountingLogFormat registry keys. [#5456] [4.1x08]
    * The print processing log window now updates if the IPPrintLogFormat and PrintAccountingLogFormat registry keys are refreshed. [#5455] [4.1x08]
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed a bug where the Administrator would look for the IPPrintLogFormat and PrintAccountingLogFormat registry keys in the wrong location. [#5453] [4.1x08]


    KNOWN ISSUES:

    * Print jobs will not persist on Windows XP Embedded.


    * Kerberos authentication does not work on Windows XP Embedded.

    * No changes to printing

    ExtremeZ-IP 3.2.1x7 (Released: September 9, 2004)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Changed support for the PrintAccountingLogFilePath registry key so it will apply for non-print accounting logs as well as print accounting [#3417][3.2.1x06]


    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed printing log inaccuracies when printing from Windows through LPR [#3156][3.2.1x01]



    ExtremeZ-IP 3.2.0x13 (Released: July 20, 2004)

    Note: Some changes in this section were first available as 3.1.2 hot fixes.


    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added ability to customize the selection and order of columns in the Print Processing Log. The specified configuration also applies to exporting of the log. For configuration information, see the file "Customizing Print Log Format.txt" in the ExtremeZ-IP program folder. [#2959][3.2x10]


    * The UI for adding a "Windows Print Queue' has been enhanced to allow the input of network paths to printers. [#2841][3.1.2x24]
    * Print Queues configured with 'Send To Specified Directory' can now take network paths.[2923][3.2x6]

    * Print Accounting PPDs can now take DNS addresses for the IP address of the ExtremeZ-IP server. (Print Accounting enabled version only.) [#2469][3.1.2x32]

    * Browse codes window now allows the user to enter characters and have the list scroll to the appropriate row. (Print Accounting enabled version only.) [#1635][3.1.2x16]

    * Browse codes window now allows the user to navigate using arrows keys and page up and down. (Print Accounting enabled version only.) [#2615][3.1.2x16]
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed bug where 'Image Size' and 'Copies' were not being exported in the print log through the EZIPUTIL API. [#2908][3.1.2x28]


    * Fixed bug where editing validation codes could become impossible [#2864][3.1.2x25]
    * Fixed bug where 'Page Size' would always be set to 'Unknown' when it was actually known {#2774][3.1.2x21]
    * Fixed problem where Quark documents would not print to an ExtremeZ-IP print queue when using the Print Accounting enabled version. [#2608][3.1.2x15]

    * Fixed problem where recent codes would not be saved - modified installer so that the "Group Logic" preferences folder is given full privileges so the recent codes can be written to that folder. (Print Accounting enabled version only.) [#2611][3.1.2x13]



    ExtremeZ-IP 3.1.1x9 (Released: December 2, 2003)
    * No changes for print support.

    ExtremeZ-IP 3.1.0x20 (Released: September 30, 2003)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Supports IP printing from Mac OS X. An optional ExtremeZ-IP Printing component can be installed on Mac OS X machines that will add a new option to the Print Center called ExtremeZ-IP Printers. With this users can easily see ExtremeZ-IP print queues that are broadcast using Bonjour (Rendezvous) or they can enter the IP address of a server. Users can also download a PPD from the server if one is specified for the print queue.


    * The ExtremeZ-IP server can be run on Windows 2003.
    * Allows server-side option that will force Mac OS X or OS 9 users to download and use a specified PPD.

    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixes a problem that caused the print support installer to fail when installing on Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or on Windows 2003.


    * Fixed issue where certain OS 9.2.2 clients could fail to print to printers through ExtremeZ-IP.

    * Changed LPR control file name to be properly formatted according to the spec.


    DIAGNOSTIC ENHANCEMENTS:

    * Added additional logging for LPR printing errors.




    ExtremeZ-IP 3.0.2x10 (Released: June 20, 2003)

    * No changes for print support.



    ExtremeZ-IP 3.0.1x01 (Released: April 18, 2003)

    * No changes for print support.



    ExtremeZ-IP 3.0.0 (Released: April 8, 2003)
    ENHANCEMENTS:

    * The print service now accepts jobs via AppleTalk. This is enabled via a new checkbox on the Settings dialog for Print Services.


    * If available, page sizes on spooled jobs are now reported in the log.
    * If available, page counts on spooled jobs are now reported in the job queue list and the log.
    * The EZIPUTIL command line utility can be used to export the print processing log to a specified text file
    * Significant enhancements to the EZIPUTIL command line utility. Type EZIPUTIL.EXE to get help on the commands.
    * Choose IP Printer allows the user to select which LaserWriter or AdobePS driver to use when creating desktop printers via a pop-up menu.
    * Enhancements to the Drop Folder configuration dialog to allow new folders to be created.
    BUG FIXES:
    Document name and User name are now reported properly on jobs received via the Print Service
    * Print queues no longer maintain a lock on their PPD file, which allows the PPD files to be updated without restarting the print queue.
    * Fixed potential printer preferences corruption on the Macintosh client with Choose IP Printer
    * Enhanced debugging logging capabilities of Choose IP Printer and the ExtremeZ-IP Print Server
    * ExtremeZ-IP printers now appear as "LPR" printers to the Finder to work around a crashing bug in the Finder when performing a "Get Info" on the desktop printer and choosing "Update" configuration. The printers only appear this way after restart of the Macintosh.
    * When jobs are output via the Windows printer method the owner is properly reported as the name from the Macintosh that submitted the job
    * Fixed a bug where desktop printers were not created properly in some instances, which caused printing to fail with a -8884 error

    DIAGNOSTIC ENHANCEMENTS:

    * The ExtremeZ-IP Administrator now displays the full version number in the About Box (e.g., 3.0x01)


    * The ExtremeZ-IP debug log now contains the full version number (e.g., 3.0x01)
    * Numerous debug logging configuration options can now be set from the debug dialog in the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator. Changes to the options now take place by clicking "Enable log" immediately, instead of requiring the ExtremeZ-IP service to be restarted.

    ExtremeZ-IP 2.1.1 (Released: 2002)
    BUG FIXES:

    * Fixed problem with server not responding to SLP lookups that include a "previous responders" list


    * Fixed bug that prevented the setting of the spool directory via the Administrator
    * Fixed bug where print support could still time out if a Retail version was installed on top of a running Trial version without a restart.
    CHANGES:

    * The Trial version will automatically attempt to use other ports for printing if the LPR port is in use by another service. A message will be recorded in the log if this occurs.
