- Installer: Fixed temperature problem due to enhanced performance change introduced in VENICE 184.108.40.206.
This could lead to activate the red front LED because the temperature is about 3-C above the defined limit.
- GUI: fixed possible hang during scenario load.
- VENICE GUI: If drops occurred during record, a message box is shown right before the "keep or delete" message box.
-- Do not write empty config if no license is found.
-- Added program exit code for shell commands.
- Lots of small improvements to VENICE Play.
- MOS mode:
-- Better handling of placeholder/not existing clips.
-- More and better error messages.
-- Fixed some possible inconsistencies between server and avus.
- Fixed Linux installer scripts to ensure correct start-up order.
- Fixed veniceserver log flooding.
- Fixed typo in help message of dvsnetconfig.
- Fixed pop-up box every 3 seconds when destination drive in capture or transform mode is close to capacity.
- MXF: Fixed read issue on OP1a MPEG2 files, which has no system items.
- MXF: Fixed playout drops on long (about one hour or longer) XDCamHD files with index-only partitions.
- General: added tool dvsnetconfig to all installers.
- General: check status of Venice / software network configuration via commandline ./dvsnetconfig --status
- General: Using common Network.conf file for IP / network interface configuration in Venice / veniceserver / Control
- General: automatic migration to common Network.conf during installation / update
- Patch grub.conf to enhance overall performance.
- GUI: A running display is stopped when scrubbing is used from the GUI.
- Avid Workflow: Added several checks to forbid Ingests which do not fulfill all Avid specific requirements. Due to using the Spycer backend for
most of these checks they will only apply after updating Spycer on the VeniceAppliance, Venice server and Client.
This will enforce that essence and metadata is always separated for Venice Ingests. Old behaviour was a fallback to write AAF, XML and esse
nce files into the chosen destination directory.
Please ensure to update the AvusAvatar installation of the Avid Appliance.
- Avid: we now always give a tapename for essence creation in DVS product. In Venice this is set to the first 31 letters of the clipname unless
a tapename is set. Due to technical reasons only 9 letters will be used for the creation of MXF opAtom files.
- FIMS: "manageQueue" request with command "start" or "status" - changed error messages to better reflect current state of device (avus) and add
ed error details.
- FIMS: "queryJob" request - now returning errors when device is not working properly.
- GXF, MXF: avus.ini switch 'use_source_switching_line' works now also for MXF and
- VDCP delete command will not delete essence files if vamc name does not match the essence name. The vamc is still deleted.
- Realtime-server: Removed potential log-spamming.
- Fixed VDCP settings not disabled correctly when reopening dialog.
- Veniceserver: Fixed log flooding in VDCP mode with - NexusClient::GetVDCPFileStats()- messages.
- VDCP: An ingest clip prepared by RecordInit/RecordInitWithData shows up in the VDCP-cliplists not before RECORD is sent.

- VDCP record mode: The VAMC may be not updated one last time after the essence file has been finalized.
- VDCP record mode: In some cases the currently recorded file was deleted during record.
- VDCP record mode: For some file formats opening the file to get the current length can take very long. This causes the file events to pile up and after the es
sence file is finalized, those piled up file events are processed redundantly for some time.
- MXF: Fixed MPEG2 Long GOP decoding error with Roll-Out.
- VDCP: VDCP setting "Show first cued frame" was always on after loading a project.
- VDCP: Fixed VDCP handling of unicode file names.

- VDCP: added UI switch for changing timecode config (Configuration / VDCP / Timecode settings).
- VDCP: Config option "Support for clip duration estimation" for all growing MXF OP1a files.
-- GUI: added check with nexus that extended vdcp params (nodurationestimation) is possible.
--- On fail, VDCP is not possible; user gets error and VDCP config tab is opened.
--- ATTENTION: _Rare_ race condition can cause VDCP clip watcher to fail to start, but it is not possible to show that in the GUI.
---- VDCP record would be not affected.
---- VDCP playout is not possible, as the clip list remains empty.
---- Workaround: disable and enable slave mode, which should then either show an error or work properly.
- VDCP: Limit VDCP root folder to 10000 files and show the limit in GUI and via ChannelState (for VENICE View).
- VDCP: Default setting for "Support for clip duration estimation" is changed to "off".
- VDCP: Enabled full clip list in record mode.
- New file collision detection for ingest and transform.
- Transform mode: The destination clip meta data is not reset when any setting is changed. Instead a new button "Reload from Source" has been added to the meta
- Ingest mode: The destination clip meta data is not reset when any setting is changed.
- FIMS: Apply fims_defaults.vprst when starting FIMS mode, not when preparing the first job.
- MXF: Improved free space duration display.
- Fixed potential UI crash.
- Fixed MOS 2.8.
- MOV: Fixed multi destination with XDCamHD in QuickTime does not work.
- FIMS: Fixed that when sending a job as "paused", any drops that occurred before the job was started, where still added to that job.
- FIMS: Added support for DNxHD segmentedFrame capture jobs.
- Avid: MXF files for Avid workflow now use first 8 letters from destination clipname for naming as default. Setting tapename in Metadata tab still overrules th
is (no MXF files beginning with Unnamed on ISIS anymore).
- AudioRouting: Improved handling of audio routing in record mode. If stored audio routing clashes with audio routing restrictions of the chosen file format, fa
ll back to default routing of the chosen file format and inform the user.

Venice 126.96.36.199 [600 MB]
- VAMC: Fixed potential problem with vamc files without audio.
- Fixed rare audio resync issue during high server load
- FIMS: Fixed crash when starting/stopping FIMS queue frequently
- FIMS: Fixed issue regarding job status at the end of jobs
- FIMS: General stability improvements
- Added auto cleanup for FIMS job queue
- Fileformats: Added quality setting to the file format "MPEG-2 video -> MXF" so that video quality can be adjusted from outside, e.g. through GUI.
- Added configuration option to force a new clip name after single clip ingest and transform.
- VENICE GUI does not accept unsupported ingest settings with both clip chunking and proxy generation active
- VENICE GUI: Metadata config tab now contains an explanation instead of being empty
- ClipChunking settings had no effect for a record, if clip chunking was setup after all other settings (destination etc.).
- FIMS: Changes to the audio channel count were sometimes ignored.
- DVSWS: Added queryFreeDiskSpace request, to get free, used and available disk space in bytes.
- FIMS Transform: Added support for sourceAtom (Timecode settings only).
- FIMS: If no audio format is specified, no audio will be recorded; if the destination format requires audio, the job will fail.

- Added new AudioRouting presets for capture, playout and transform. These presets are part of the project.
- MOV: Added multi-destination support for QuickTime.
- MOS: Changed behaviour of roCtrl PLAY/EXECUTE/SHUTTLE command: when at the end of a playing block automatic wrap-around is now disabled.
- AudioRouting configuration: Reset to default now mutes all excess output channels.
-MXF: Improved general MXF essence multiplexing.
- Fixed reporting of channel state (caused wrong display in VeniceView).
- MXF (OP1a): Timecode gaps are not written in footer partition by default. This can be modified in avus.ini (ignoretcgap option).
- Improved how aspect ratio is saved in project settings. Previous version could produce aspect ratios close to the real aspect ratio (1.78 instead of 16/9=1,777...). That could have caused a slight scaling applied in some cases.
- Fixed wrong scaling when switching from playout mode to transform mode with different raster.
- Fixed 'dvslogwatch collect' on RHEL 5.
- MOV: Added read support for QuickTime Movies containing self-contained url data references.
