PrinterLogic 19.1 Features Canon MFP Support

PrinterLogic 19.1 (formerly known as Printer Installer), adds comprehensive secure release printing for Canon MFPs, expanded scalability for enterprise authentication, Safari 12 (macOS Mojave) support, and dozens of other enhancements that will improve the experience for admins and end users.

Canon-certified Gen 2 CPA
We’re launching our second generation of control panel applications (CPAs) with one designed for Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE printers. The Canon CPA is based on our all-new Control Panel Platform. It’s available with our optional Pull Printing licensing, and provides secure-release printing that’s easier and faster than ever before. End users can launch the app on the printer’s display, view their pending print jobs, and quickly select the ones they want to print.

PrinterLogic Control Panel Application Login Screen

PrinterLogic’s new Control Panel Application for Canon MFPs has a clean, intuitive interface and offers three authentication methods—swiping a badge, Username/Password, or User ID/PIN.

The most noticeable advantage of the new CPA design is that it reduces wait times between authentication and printing by 50% or more. Loading the CPA is much faster, too. On the backend, from an admin’s perspective, CPA-related error messages offer more insight and there are improved troubleshooting tools.

A list of supported Canon printers is on our Control Panel Application Support page. Further Gen 2 CPAs will be released to support even more brands in the near future.

More scalable LDAP
Large organizations that make use of Active Directory (AD) will see a speed boost in PrinterLogic 19.1. The latest version is able to handle multiple organizational units (OUs) with ease, and it’s now possible to search across multiple domains. These developments also lay the groundwork for future integration with cloud-based identity services such as Okta, Azure AD, and Google ID.

Safari 12 support
In its most recent macOS release (Mojave, 10.14.x), Apple changed the way Safari browser extensions work. This was done primarily for security reasons. To address this shift in extension design from Apple, we’ve rewritten the Safari browser extension so it now complies with Apple’s latest standards, while maintaining PrinterLogic’s functionality and ease of use.

Updated Section 508 compliance
Version 19.1 includes updates to our compliance with U.S. Government Section 508 standards first introduced in version 18.1. The voluntary product accessibility standards (known as VPAT) have evolved since that release, which is why we’ve updated our solution to align with VPAT 2.x.

For more details on these features and the other enhancements in this release, you’ll find them in our PrinterLogic 19.1 release notes.

New product names reflect strength of PrinterLogic brand
We’re changing the name of Printer Installer to PrinterLogic Web Stack, and changing the name of PrinterCloud to PrinterLogic SaaS. These changes are more aligned with our company brand, and underscore our focus on a SaaS-oriented product line. Whether they’re running PrinterLogic as a service, or in their own datacenter, customers have come to trust PrinterLogic as a solution they rely on for true serverless printing.
