If it were easy, it would have been there from the start. :) Some kind  
of simple printing is easy, but it's not easy to implement a print  
function that will do a high-quality, efficient job on all platforms  
and for all types of printer.

Stefan has written an experimental patch that provides printing  
support, and you can get Windows builds that include this from Alain's  
site -- check the mailing list archives. (Sorry, I don't remember  
which platform you're using.)

Further testing and refinement of the printing function, and  
integrating it into the main release, is something we'll try to work  
on after the TeX Live release is finished; I didn't want to risk  
destabilizing the program just before that goes out.

For now, I'd recommend using Adobe Reader or other existing tools to  
print the PDF.
