An ECO kit exists for DECprint Supervisor (DCPS) for OpenVMS VAX V1.1, 1.1A 
on OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 through V6.1. This kit addresses the following

	- Reduces memory and pagefile consumption by allowing a supervisor 
	  process to control multiple print queues (runs "multistreamed").  
	  This allows a system to have far fewer DCPS supervisor processes, 
	  and thus alleviates memory and pagefile consumption.

	- Reduces idle queue processor overhead by allowing supervisor 
          processes to control multiple print queues, thereby reducing the 
          number of supervisor processes and the overhead imposed by each. 

	- AppleTalk printer names may now be specified with 8-bit accented 

	- The ANSI translator has been fixed so as not to abnormally 
	  truncate lines when printed with PAGE_ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE 
	  on A4 media.

	- The serial/LAT printer "back-end" has been changed to make it 
	  less aggressive on job startup.  Previously, DCPS could cause 
	  a print job from a UNIX host or LATSYM to abort if the job had 
          completed on that host, but was still printing at the printer.
	  The serial/LAT back-end now waits for the printer to stop 
	  printing before it begins the new job.  A new DCPS logical 
	  name can be defined to restore the old behavior, if needed. 

	- Previous versions of DCPS could hang, especially on AppleTalk 
	  connected printers, if a job name contained the "]" character. 
	  This problem is corrected in this ECO release.

	- Under rare circumstances, DCPS V1.1 and V1.1a could exit with 
          the following message "%DCPS-F-INSEF, insufficient event flags".
	  This problem is corrected in this release.

	- New system logicals are now recognized for changing DCPS modes 
	  and behaviors to other than the defaults.
	- The startup template command procedure, DCPS$STARTUP.TEMPLATE 
          has been updated to show how to configure the print supervisor 
          for multistreamed operation.

	- The kit installation procedure and IVP have been enhanced 
	  to check for and report running DCPS queues and components 
	  that might cause unpredictable behavior during an upgrade.

	- The release notes have been updated to describe how to 
	  configure a system for multistreamed supervisor operation. 
          They also describe the new logical names and options.
