PB Shipping API - USPS.

Improved authentication token handling Updated caching of authentication tokens to increase their reliability if the expiry is less than an hour.

UPS API. Revised Rate Response.

Updated the UPS API Rate Response to use different fields when calculating accessorial fees and shipping costs, due to the carrier returning incorrect cost information.

The following changes have been made to the printing process:

  • Improved the error message that presents when a printer name hasn’t been configured for printing documents in Peripheral Agent.
