    Hi,

    StreamServe is about to remove some legacy drivers from the output connectors in next major version to be released

    Motivation is to reduce the redundancy and code maintenance.

    Please comment if you feel you will be missing any of them

    thanks
    David

    Here is the list of drivers that will be removed:

    • HTML paginated driver
      Consequence:  PageOUT and PostProcessor cannot create HTML, no paginated HTML output from StoryTeller.
      StreamServe assumes that nobody uses this driver any more
    • IJPDS driver
      Consequence:  No IJPDS driver
      StreamServe assumes that nobody uses this driver any more

    Followindg drivers have a newer replacement

    • AFP (StreamServe 3.x) driver
    • DCX (PCL Convert) driver
    • PCL 5 (StreamServe 2.x) driver
    • PCL 5 (StreamServe RePRINT) driver

    I think it's just the training material that needs updating.

    I will miss the IJPDS driver though because it is a lovely word to sound in Swedish. Its like:

    Eeyeepeedee-ess - can we please keep it in the list as a momento - yet have it unactivated?

    BTW: WIll the the new Windows driver have the ability to set COPIES?

    And will the new Zebra Driver allow for extended controls on the job settings /printer controls / installed fonts and barcodes that have caused so many headaches for many an implementor?

    Just curious.
