iPrint client version

I have patched one iPrint server from NetWare 6.5 SP7 to SP8 and installed the iprntnw65sp8b-2 patch on the server.

I noticed SP8 does not install a new iPrint client. All my Windows XP and Windows 2000 PCs already have iPrint client version 4.36 installed. Did a test print and it seems to come out fine. I wonder if I can keep using iPrint client v4.36 on these PCs.

When I add Windows 7 PC on the network, I will install iPrint version 5.30 to W7 PCs and my admin XP PC that will do the iPrint printer configuration.

Does anyone see any issue with that?

Would like to hold off changes on other PCs till I move iPrint from NW to OES 2Linux.

Note that 5.30 is an old client. The current version is 5.40 and can be found here:

NOVELL: Downloads - iPrint Client for Windows XP/Vista/Win7 5.40

Note that while you can continue using an old iPrint client on your existing workstations, that will also mean that you don't take advanatge of the enhancements and fixes of the new client (like better support for HP universal printer drivers) and you won't be able to use iManager with a current iprint plugin to manage printer drivers from one of those workstations.
