I just printed a test image to my Epson SC-P800 (Mac OS10.11.5) using

LR 2016.6
as well as Affinity Pro 1.4.2 and
Roy Harrington’s QTR PrintTool  

all through the same custom ICC profile onto Ilford Gallerie Smooth Pearl paper.

All prints are identical except that from LR 2015.6 where there is banding on smooth colour gradients and a muted appearance in highly saturated areas.

I tried installing the latest (US) driver for the P800 as advised elsewhere by Rikk Flohr and printed again using both LR2015.5.1 and LR 2105.6 with the same result — the print through 2015.5.1 is as I expect it, while the print through 2015.6 is flat and banded.  

Hoping they’ll fix this. I like the upright tools!
