Database Schema for SQL server: Updated the database so SQL server can accept and store special characters from character sets other than Latin (for example, characters with umlauts or accents, .Arabic characters etc.). A database update is required.

Important: SQL Server Express has a maximum database size limit of 10 GB and upgrading requires some free memory. So when you upgrade to Release 19.0, make sure the data in the PaperCut NG/MF database is less than 8 GB or the upgrade will fail. If the database is larger than 8 GB, contact us. PC-14602

Added an option in the Admin web interface on the Options > General page to display real-time activity warnings when the User Client is unavailable and requires user input. MAC-5385
