I added that printer support about 6 or 7 or even more years back.

I can't remember on which TOSes I tested the output back then.
For the moment I cannot confirm v2.06. It works here for TOS v2.06 with
my standard Satandisk config. I only clicked on "Print" on the desktop
The output was correctly generated. Hatari built is about 2 or 3 weeks

That is intentionally because I wanted to make printer support available
for systems that would bypass the TOS.
Maybe my hack back then was just a "simple fit". I reverseengineered the
behaviour with the help of the Atari ST Profibuch 1988 issue.
Maybe my timing assumptions were not 100% for all TOS?

None, the PSG mapped I/O port is the official connection for ST
machines. (I can't tell for TT or Falcon though, although I assume it is
there as well.)
I can only imagine that my interception code is not 100%.
