Epson is mailing some readers detailed information on long-awaited drivers for its printers under OS X 10.1. The official message from Epson is as follows:

Epson has been and continues to be fully committed to supporting the Macintosh market, including support for the Mac OS X operating system. Therefore we are pleased to update you on our progress in the development of OS X-compatible drivers.

We had eagerly been awaiting the availability of OS 10.1 because it will enable us to offer more compatible products with greater functionality than would have been possible under the initial release of the system. As soon as we received this updated version of the operating system the last week of September, our engineers were able to move forward aggressively with the development of drivers that will support OS X.

As a result, we are pleased to announce that we will have updated drivers for several of our printers ready in just a few weeks, with additional drivers to follow in subsequent weeks. These drivers will be available on our website for customers to download as noted below:

Printer | Scheduled Web Posting Date
Stylus C40 | Monday, October 22
Stylus C60 | Monday, October 22
Stylus C80 | Monday, October 22
Stylus Photo 820 | Monday, October 22
Stylus Photo 785EPX | Monday, October 22

Stylus Photo 780 | Monday, October 29
Stylus Photo 890 | Monday, October 29
Stylus Photo 1280 | Monday, October 29
Stylus COLOR 980 | Monday, October 29

Stylus Photo 870 | Monday, November 5
Stylus Photo 875DC | Monday, November 5
Stylus Photo 1270 | Monday, November 5
Stylus Photo 2000P | Monday, November 5
Stylus COLOR 900 | Monday, November 5

We will be announcing in a few weeks the release dates for drivers for the EPSON Stylus Color 740, 760, 860, 777 and 880, as well as our Perfection scanners and professional graphics printers that will be supported.

We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced during this time. But we believe that by taking time to wait for the more fully featured operating system and subsequently taking time to properly develop and test each driver to our exacting standards, our printers will continue to provide the best image quality with OS X, as they do with other operating systems.
