    Release Notes: Several new configuration directives were introduced to increase the software's versatility. You can now control the ordering in the output of the data dumper, either from the command line or when it's used as a CGI script. The "grey vs color" pseudo colorspace is now supported in ink accounting mode. Several minor improvements and bugfixes were done all over the place.

      Release Notes: The most important new feature is support for the accounting of ink usage. Several improvements were done all over the place in both usability and configurability. A lot of bugs were fixed.

        Release Notes: Many fixes were made to accommodate MySQL "features". A locking mechanism has been introduced to allow several print servers to access the same device without mixing print jobs and banners. More environment variables are now accessible to the print administrators' own scripts. The pkipplib library is now used to directly interact with the print server.

            Release Notes: This release is mostly aimed at adventurous souls. Complete MySQL support was added, but is in need of testing. Several improvements were done to SNMP and PJL hardware accounting routines. The whole database can now be exported with a single dumpykota command. The cupspykota backend may now be stopped cleanly by print administrators. The preaccounter directive was introduced in the configuration file to allow people to specify which parser should be used to pre-estimate the number of pages in a job, in case the internal parser is not appropriate.

              Release Notes: Experimental support for SQLite was added, which greatly eases installation on standalone print servers. A bug that prevented sending Winpopup-like messages to MS Windows clients was fixed. Problems encountered while sending data to printers are now marked as such in the printing history, and can be charged or not depending on a newly introduced runtime configuration directive.

                Release Notes: A major bug caused by a missing return statement that caused the CUPS backends' errors to be silently ignored instead of being reported back to CUPS was fixed. This bug caused jobs submitted while printers were in an error condition to disappear instead of being put on hold.

                      Release Notes: This first HotFix is now available as a set of Official PyKota packages. It fixes IPP message parsing code to prevent the saving of duplicated hostnames in the job history under some circumstances. It also fixes the edpykota commandline tool's --prototype option. The latest development tree features an improved data dumper with date filtering possibilities and configurability for the logo and its destination link in the CGI scripts.
