-------

08/20/92 - v13.346 - Initial posting of driver package.

FIXES SINCE GA:
a) APAR#: JR04677 and PJ03858
DESCRIPTION: Print jobs submitted in RAW format get an extra
Form Feed added at end of job or a Form Feed
added that is not desired.

(e.g. Panosonic printers) print last few lines

RESOLUTION: The Epson driver now recognizes that this feature
is being used and will now allow the data to fit
onto 1 page avoiding a Form Feed.
c) APAR#: PJ03740
DESCRIPTION: With OfficeVision/2 Inbasket and other apps that
only print on the last few lines of a page,
Epson displays error message (PMV6011) and file

-------

a) APAR#: PJ04342
DESCRIPTION: Large print jobs print slowly from Laserjet
printers that support data compression
compared to Windows 3.1.
RESOLUTION: Implemented compression modes 2 and 3 for those
devices that support it. The field for
"Memory size (KB)" must be changed in the
Laserjet Printer Properties to reflect actual
memory on printer so the driver can select best
compression mode.

b) DCR#: 1399 "Standardizing OS/2 Printer Drivers"
DESCRIPTION: The LaserJet driver stored it's information in the
OS2.INI file instead of the OS2SYS.INI files where
all OS/2 drivers are supposed to.

instead of OS2.INI.

c) APAR#: NONE
DESCRIPTION: Occasional trap occurs printing to ledger paper.
RESOLUTION: LaserJet driver fixed.

DESCRIPTION: LaserJet reads stored printer/job properties
multiple times unecessarily from OS2SYS.INI.

properties once.

attempt to display or retrieve printer and job
properties from the driver.
Seen on applications (often 16-bit OS/2 apps)
that have buttons like "print options",
"printer setup", or "print setup" to name a few.
The problem was originally seen using drag and
drop from WorkPlace Shell.
RESOLUTION: Fixed driver to display popup or return correct
information.

OS/2 Plotter driver
===================

HISTORY (date - version - description of changes )
-------

08/20/92 - v13.348 - Initial posting of driver package.

Fixes since GA:

a) DEFECT#: 44143/44392
DESCRIPTION: Using the 32-bit graphics engine some
drawings were coming out distorted.
Especially those printing lines, polylines,
arcs, curves and polyfillets in non-pel
units.

OS/2 PM PLOT Queue Processor
----------------------------

HISTORY (date - version - description of changes )
-------

08/20/92 - v13.345 - Initial posting of PMPLOTPD driver.
v13.342 - Initial posting of PMPLOT queue processor.
No changes since GA.

03/30/92 - v13.345 - OS/2 2.0 GA version of PMPLOTPD driver
v13.342 - OS/2 2.0 GA version of PMPLOT queue processor

NOTES
-----

This queue processor differs from PM Print that is shipped with
OS/2 in that it handles reverse clipping. This allows a vector
device to draw "on top of" previously drawn areas of the page
and remember what is really "on top" so colors don't blend
together.
