I don't know about what you saw.

The content in John's version is vastly amended (I'd guess going from 38
pages to > 100 is vast). A lot of detailed explanations are now included;
rpcclient with print-related sub-commands to populate [print$] with driver
files is documented for the first time with a lot of examples. Setting the
correct printer device mode is explained and a lot more (it is not yet
finished and polished, but already helped quite some people to get their
print setup working).
