6.10 Is Live and It.Is.Big.
Our Summer 2019 software release is here, and with it come some amazing changes and upgrades. This is our biggest release until 7.0 comes in 2020 and we are so excited to share these new upgrades. Read on for the release notes.
Mobile Printing Is Now In Our Most Popular Product
Tricerat has been dedicated to printing for over 20 years, and by harnessing that expertise, we continue to improve and expand upon our product lineup. We've been working on perfecting our mobile printing technology since before our customers were even convinced they would need it. After supporting it for years as a singular solution, we've taken the next step to include it on our most popular product. The reality is BYOD isn’t new, but companies haven’t been able to catch up to mobile from a management standpoint. Tricerat is now changing the game by bundling mobile printing directly into our most popular product, Simplify Printing.
The core mobile printing functionality included and supported is:
- Android printing to print server printers from any app that supports printing
- iOS printing to print server printers from any app that supports the “share” action
Administrators can now manage their organization's mobile printing needs right in the Simplify Console, streamlining their workflow. This is truly enterprise print management for the modern, digital workspace.
For our customers: As a benefit to our Simplify customers with active maintenance plans, this entire upgrade is available to you free of charge. It does not require a license change but it does require one new server. Not on an active maintenance plan? Contact us to learn about signing up.

Other Improvements in 6.10
While mobile printing makes up the bulk of this release, there are a few other capabilities and improvements that have been added. These updates improve the integration of Tricerat software into your existing techology stack, as well as coming in handy during normal print/printer management.
- We now offer command line refresh of print server agents as the start of a new API/CLI interface. This functionality will be expanded with more capabilities in version 7.
- Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) port scan printer discovery is now available for our Simplify Driver Management solution.
Roadmap - v7
Coming in 2020, version 7 will include an entire UI overhaul. The Simplify Console will get a new look-and-feel to optimize workflows, save time, and add in efficiencies to continue to simplify printer administration. Watch the 6.10 video above for more information on version 7.0.
