{top - direct_link}

Package includes the following installers: RHEL5&6 [55 MiB] + Apple [432 MiB] + Windows [108 MiB]

Changes 2.9.1.21 - [ChangeLog]
----------------
- Webservice: Add overwrite flag for rename job. The flag is optional. Default is 'don't overwrite' (job will fail if the target file exists already). Note: This changed the default behavior. Before the job was just pausing, but uncontrollable via webservice API.

Fixed:
- GUI: drag and drop as well as copy and paste item list order is now the same as it is visible.

Improved:
- Agent: increased generic logfile size from 2MB to 8MB


Changes 2.9.1.20
----------------
Fixed:
- General: Minor fixes and improvements

Improved:
- GUI: Raised selection limit from 50 to 300.

************************************************** 
Additional notes:

General bugfixes and improvements:

The Webservice API for the Rename Job now has an overwrite flag. The default is 0. That means the job will fail with a proper error message if the target file exists already.

BREAKING CHANGE:
Before the jobs were set to "pause mode", but it was impossible for the Webservice to control them.

If the flag is set to 1 the target file will be overwritten without asking if it exists already.
(This addresses the "paused rename" issue at NBCU)

Copy To and Move To is now possible with multi selection from the search result. (For Move To all clips must be from same peer.)

The sort order of drag and drop as well as for copy and paste is now the same order as displayed in GUI.

Checkin of mov files into Avid Interplay is disabled now.

Furthermore we increased the Agent Log file size to 8 MB (from 2) and we disabled the dumping of network messages on error. This was wasting the log before. Now only the "header" of the message will be put into the logfile, which will be enough information for debugging.
