Update of installed Kyocera printer drivers - From 08:00am, Monday 14th December 2020

Following customer feedback and internal testing activities we will update the Kyocera printer driver currently in use across all ITS Windows print servers.

This will provide for enhanced document and device compatibility, stability and will enhance the support for device fonts and provide a broad spectrum of bug fixes.

No customer action or disruption to service is expected.

The update will take place silently and at most cause a minimal delay before the push or pull print queue is operational once more.

This should be the position for both Managed and unmanaged Windows platforms.

Mac, Linux/Unix, CUPS, Mobile Print and HP print queue customers are unaffected by this change.

Any customers with concerns or questions should contact the ITS Helpdesk via the usual support channels.
