Dear Client,

we're pleased to announce:

  1. Printfil 5.15 has been released
  2. Closing period for vacation from 30 Apr to 9 May

1) Printfil 5.15 has been released

What's new:

  • Added compatibility with the upcoming Windows 8 version (tested with the Win8 Developer Preview)
  • Simplified installation and upgrades on peer-to-peer networks. Now you can install/upgrade Printfil on just the network server and the client computers will upgrade automatically the first time they'll run Printfil from the network shared directory
  • Now you can use PDF files as background for your textual print jobs
  • On some particularly slow machines/networks, when printing to some network printers, Windows could trigger the "Choose printer" dialog even if it's disabled in the Printfil's configuration. Printfil now detects this case and retry invoking the printer for a few more time. If the preselected printer is really unavailable, then the "Choose Printer" dialog is finally shown (as before)
  • Some other minor improvements

The upgrade is free for all the Customers who are using the 5.x version, by using the same license codes. You just need to download and install the new Printfil setup program (or leave the AutoUpdate program doing it automatically) without uninstalling the current version first.

If you are still using an old 4.3 version, purchased since 7 Nov 2005 (date of its release), you've right to the free upgrade too, but even your license codes needs to be upgraded (Printfil 5 uses different codes than Printfil 4). The AutoUpdate program will guide you through the update process and will automatically update everything that is needed. If the automatic check has been disabled, simply right-click the Printfil's trayed icon and choose "Search for updates".

If you've purchased previous 4.x licenses from 2003 to 2005, for a limited time only, you can still upgrade them to the newest version simply by purchasing Printfil Upgrade licenses at discounted prices. Don't miss this opportunity! it will expire soon!

2) Closing period for vacation from 30 Apr to 9 May

Our offices will be closed for vacation from 30 Apr to 9 May.

You can purchase your Printfil licenses even during the closing period because the ordering system is totally automated.

Support requests received during the closing period will be answered as soon as possible, at our return.

If you've questions, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
