Mead & Co updates ScriptX for easier, more powerful browser-based printing

Launches version 7.1 of world's bestselling printing add-on

21 January 2013: Mead & Co today released ScriptX 7.1, the latest version of the global standard for controlling the printing of browser-hosted content on Microsoft Windows. ScriptX 7.1 has been enhanced based on customer feedback to include an improved user experience, easier management and the dynamic connection of shared printers.

ScriptX is the world's favourite add-on for total control when printing html and PDF documents, labels or bar codes from client and server computers running Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) browser. It ensures that printed formatting and appearance is consistent, whatever the actual browser settings on the individual computer.

Hundreds of thousands of business critical documents are printed using ScriptX every day, including labels, patient IDs and prescriptions, invoices, the content of corporate intranets, output from banking kiosks, information flow for the shipping and warehousing industries and other browser-hosted content. Users include FTSE100/Fortune 500 companies, central and local government, healthcare providers, the military, financial services companies, logistics businesses and many other companies and institutions.

Launched in 1998, ScriptX is now installed on many millions of Windows computers around the world and is at the heart of thousands of web-based applications. It is available on a cost-effective annual subscription basis which includes unlimited support and automatic access to product updates via the ScriptX website. A full range of additional cost-options enable enhanced PDF working, direct 'RAW' printing, silent license installation and the enhanced formatting of HTML headers & footers. A free version enabling a basic subset of ScriptX printing functionality is also available and can be freely distributed.

"Over the past 15 years ScriptX has helped put companies and developers across the globe in control when printing business critical browser-hosted content," said Jerry Mead, CEO, Mead & Co. "We pride ourselves on listening to our thousands of licensees, and this latest release aims to make their jobs easier and tighten their control of html printing moving forward."

ScriptX 7.1 includes a number of powerful new features based on customer requests and feedback. User experience has been improved through clearer security manager dialogues which aid installation, software updating and solving common issues. Once deployed, the overall management of ScriptX is now made simpler and faster through some new 'no error' forms of common APIs. Additionally, the software can now dynamically access shared printers not listed in the Printers collection in Control Panel.

ScriptX supports all versions of Internet Explorer from IE 4.01 SP1 to IE 10 on Microsoft operating systems from Windows 95 to Windows 8. ScriptX 7.1 requires a minimum of Windows 2000 and IE6 in order to deliver its new functionality.

The new version of ScriptX is part of an accelerated focus on development by Mead & Co, as the tool is enhanced to meet evolving user needs and the introduction of new browser and operating systems technology by Microsoft.

Existing licensees can download and deploy the ScriptX 7.1 binaries free of charge by visiting the Mead & Co customer portal. The free 'basic' version of the software can be downloaded from the ScriptX download page.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
