HP Deskjet 6940 Mac OS Support

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 6940
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

I gave up trying to reach HP by phone so I thought I'd give this a try. I've been able to get my Deskjet 6940 to sort of work with Mac OS Big Sur after the whole unsigned certificate revocation debacle, but it's using a generic driver that does not allow access to the utility or print settings, making it very difficult to produce any kind of decent results. I know this is an older printer, but it's one I haven't used much and it is in excellent condition. Before I throw it in the dumpster, is there anyone that can tell me whether or not HP plans to release updated drivers for these? I've already thrown out a scanner and another printer over the years due to this same kind of problem, so I'm not very optimistic, but before I spend the money on a new printer, does anyone know if it is worth waiting?

I was having problems with OS Big Sur and my old printer and it worked for me!
