neoCatalog v24.7

July 2024


In line with the changes for neoStampa Delta, neoCatalog will also adopt the new Calendar Numbering system. Users will see the transition from neoCatalog 3.16.18 to neoCatalog 24.7.




What’s New

Secure Printing with End-to-End Encryption: Integrated encryption feature for secure printing of jobs in neoCatalog for data security and protection of sensitive information.

  • Users can now choose to encrypt jobs in the Print dialog using supported file formats like PSD and PSB before sending them to the Print Server. Enabling job encryption is based in the Print Server Management in neoCatalog. 
  • Unsupported file formats cannot be encrypted, and a warning message is displayed if a user attempts to encrypt an unsupported job. In such cases, the job is added to the Print Server queue without encryption and printed normally without any special formatting.
  • Encrypted jobs are indicated by an italic font in the Print Server queue. The required decryption code to print the encrypted jobs is communicated between the neoCatalog and Print Server. 
  • When an encrypted job is printed, a new print order is created in Requests with the date of printing. The Event History Log in the order records various actions related to the encrypted jobs, including printing, workflow changes, and job details. 
  • The encrypted job cannot be reprinted.
