Compatibility testing is targeted and strict.  Backwards compatibilities will be specifically noted, if they exist.  If not noted, then none is claimed.

edited on March 6, 2020, to add the following test data:


JSL v8.1 is not compatible with DLSS-14a. It requires a Gymea change available in the DLSS-15a RC2, as determined by testing at Memjet. 

Xitron DuraLink R2.3 with JSL v8.1 is compatible with DLSS-15a
Xitron DuraLink R2.3 with JSL v8.1 is not compatible with DLSS-14.
 Xitron DuraLink R2.3 with JSL v7 is compatible with DLSS-14, but the 3 new features mentioned below are not supported by JSL and/or the printer firmware.

The Xitron release (candidate?) R2.3 for DLSS-15a was tested for 3 new features:

  • narrow jobs (e.g., those occupying <= 1 PH on a 2-wide system) with 2 configurations: output only on leftmost PH and output only on rightmost PH (testing passed on 1 of these 2 configurations).
  • disabled print bars
  • duplicate colors in a single-engine stage 
    • o    interleaved mode, where each PH prints every other line at 395 dpi, with 2 configurations: odd rows from first PH or even rows from first PH
    • o    overprinted mode, for greater optical density

If JSL v8.1 is used with DLSS-14, then the Xitron spooler will not indicate that sending the job has completed and the job will not enter the print engine queue (will not be visible in the Oatley UI). Memjet is investigating the lack of a fault, in this case, so the issue may present differently in future DLSS releases.

Note: Xitron's r2.3 was bypassed and its improvements were released in r2.4.

Notes on R3.0.  This is the "reduced PC" release.  The initial release gives us 1 PC per side.  So a simplex printer will get 1 PC and a duplex will use 2 PCs.  Later releases will add the flexibility to use whatever number of PCs per side you want.
