- June 8 : IT and PS divisions (done) - June 22 : AC, AS, DG, DSU, EST, FI, LHC divisions - June 24 : EP, PE, SPL, TH, TIS divisions - June 28 : SL, ST divisionsFor users who want to use the new Printing Package before the deployment date, it can be installed by running the following program (only once):
