On October 28, 2016, the team behind the HPLIP (HP Linux Imaging & Printing) project, an HP-developed solution for providing up-to-date drivers for HP Inkjet and Laser-based printers to GNU/Linux distributions was updated to version 3.16.10.
HP Linux Imaging & Printing (HPLIP) 3.16.10 comes a little over a month after the release of the previous version, 3.16.9, to introduce support for Canonical's recently released Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system, as well as for the sixth update to the stable Debian GNU/Linux 8 "Jessie" series.
Apart from that, HPLIP 3.16.10 adds support for new HP printers and scanners, including HP OfficeJet 6950 All-in-One printer, HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 Wide Format All-in-One printer, HP ScanJet Pro 3000 s3 Sheet-feed scanner, HP ScanJet Enterprise Flow 5000 s4 Sheet-feed scanner, and HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277c6 printer.
HP ScanJet Enterprise Flow 7000 s3 sheetfeed scanners are also supported
Additionally, the HP Linux Imaging & Printing 3.16.10 update includes support for the HP ScanJet Enterprise Flow 7000 s3 sheetfeed scanner, with the note that you'll need to use the "hp-scan --adf --size=size_name" command for scan jobs if you own a scanner from the HP ScanJet series.
For more information, you should run the "hp-scan --help" command. The HP Linux Imaging & Printing 3.16.10 sources are available for download right now via our website, and we recommend all users to update from HPLIP 3.16.9 as soon as the new version lands in the stable software repositories of their favorite GNU/Linux distro.
As usual, we recommend installing the latest HPLIP release from the stable software repositories of your favorite GNU/Linux operating system. HP Linux Imaging & Printing 3.16.10 should soon land in the repos of other distributions, including Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) and Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 "Jessie" supported by this update.
