Apple releases printer drivers for Canon, Samsung, others

Apple has released a slew of updated printer drivers, but chances are the only ones most of us will care about are those for Canon, Ricoh, and Samsung printers.

For Canon, Apple released Printer Drivers 2.8, providing the latest printing and scanning software for OS X Lion and OS X 10.6; those drivers will help those same OSes work with roughly a jillion different Canon printers and multifunctions. Ricoh owners can get version 2.2 of their drivers for the same OSes and covering an equally enormous roster of machines. And for Samsung, Apple provided version 2.3 of its drivers, again for the last two versions of OS X; ditto on the enormity of the list of supported hardware.

At the same time, Apple also released drivers for printers from Gestetner, Infotec, and Lanier, but those are likely to be of less interest to most Macworld readers: Gestetner and Lanier both specialize in selling "document solutions" systems to enterprise customers, while Infotec is a reseller catering to that same market.
