Release 4.2.3

Version: "Dufourspitze" 4.2.3-1.0.31922. Release date: 7 Dec. 2017.

Known issues

Known limitations

  • CVT custom display settings modes are not available on HMP350, but you can use the "Fixed Mode" video timings instead. See Custom display settings page for more details.
  • USB cellular modems (3G/4G) are not supported.
  • USB external storage is not supported on DiVA, nor by the Content creation tool.
  • Self tests are not supported.
  • Fusion interface is not supported on the DiVA, HMP300 and HMP350.
  • In the static IPv6 configuration, using an IPv6 gateway address which is not in the local network is invalid, but accepted by Control Center. Such a configuration results in an incompletely initialized network after reboot. Make sure the IPv6 gateway address is in the same subnet as the assigned IPv6 address or is otherwise a link-local address.

Backward compatibility issues

Minor features / improvements

Control Center and configuration

  • It is now possible to completely disable Bonjour (mDNS). In the configuration backup, this is controlled by the new <bonjour-enabled> element.
  • It is now possible to disable IPv6 auto-configured addresses (i.e. stateless address autoconfiguration, a.k.a. SLAAC). In the configuration backup, this is controlled by the new <disable-slaac> element.
  • It is now possible to specify a static IPv6 configuration. In the configuration backup, this is controlled by the new <ethernet-v6-none> and <ethernet-v6-static> elements.
  • DNS configuration has been reorganized to properly support static IPv6 configurations.
    • IPv6 address are now accepted for DNS servers.
    • The DNS configuration is now independent of the IPv4 configuration. A DNS configuration can now be "automatic" or "manual".
    • An "automatic" DNS configuration will use the DNS settings retrieved via any automatic IPv4 / IPv6 configuration mechanism (currently only IPv4 DHCP), if no automatic IPv4 / IPv6 configuration is active the resulting DNS settings will be empty.
    • A "manual" DNS configuration will use the DNS settings provided by the user, overriding any settings obtained via any automatic IPv4 / IPv6 configuration mechanism.
    • During a firmware update previous DHCP IPv4 configurations will be converted to "automatic" DNS and previous static IPv4 configurations will be converted to "manual" DNS, keeping the same user settings.
    • Consequently, the syntax of the configuration backup has changed as well. It is controlled by the <dns-automatic> and <dns-manual> elements. The older syntax is still accepted for backwards compatibility.
  • The JavaScript libraries have been updated.
    • The Finance widgets were no longer working since Yahoo! retired its Financial services. The data source has been replaced with the AlphaVantage provider. Existing projects that were using Yahoo! should transparently switch to the new data source, newly created projects will explicitly use the new data source.

Miscellaneous

  • Include dump of IPv6 routes in report for better diagnostics.

Bug fixes

  • The UPnP and Bonjour discovery settings were not saved for the recovery console configuration.
  • Uploading a backup without live-source on a player with a configured live source may cause an internal web server error.

Security

  • Fixed the following security vulnerabilities.
    • Linux kernel: CVE-2017-14106, which likely did not affect the firmware.
    • Apache httpd: CVE-2016-2161, CVE-2016-8743, CVE-2017-3169 and CVE-2017-7679, which may all affect the firmware; and CVE-2016-0736, CVE-2017-7668, CVE-2017-3167 and CVE-2017-9788, none of which affect the firmware.

  • The JavaScript libraries have been updated to support fix a few issues.
    • The creation date and time of Twitter posts was not correctly parsed.
    • Date fields from data feeds were not being correctly parsed in multi-screen projects.
    • The moment.js timezone database version did not match the firmware's system timezone database (2017b).

Other

  • Secure discards request to the storage were being issued as regular discard requests.

Release 4.2.2

Version: "Dufourspitze" 4.2.2-1.0.31510. Release date: 13 Sept. 2017.

Known issues

Known limitations

Backward compatibility issues

Minor features / improvements

  • Updated timezone data to 2017b (was 2016j). Affected timezones are Mongolia, America/Punta_Arenas and Haiti.

Control Center and configuration

  • It is now possible to use Bonjour host names (i.e. of the host.local form) for NTP servers; this allows to use the host names of another HMP as (e.g., spx-hmp-001d5020001a.local) NTP server and obtain reliable time synchronization.
  • The auto-generated self-signed secure HTTP certificate is now persistent across firmware re-installs and resets to factory defaults, making it easier to maintain browser exceptions for untrusted self-signed certificates.
  • The initial synchronization to NTP servers at boot now always uses all configured NTP servers, previously only NTP servers specified by IP address and the last NTP server specified by hostname was used for initial synchronization; in all cases all servers were used for synchronization after boot.
  • It is now possible to disable Bonjour based device discovery of the player; this is controlled in the Network page of Control Center and via the backup, using <bonjour-discovery-enabled>yes</bonjour-discovery-enabled> or <bonjour-discovery-enabled>no</bonjour-discovery-enabled>. The use of Bonjour hostnames (e.g., spx-hmp-001d5020001a.local) from other devices as well as resolution of Bonjour hostnames always remains enabled.
  • Server certificates in PKCS#12 and PFX form can now be imported.
  • Server certificates in PEM form with an encrypted key can now be imported.
  • The device report file now includes the most-recently-used list for NTP to aid in diagnostics.
  • The device report file now includes a dump of extended eMMC registers to aid in diagnostics.
  • The device report file now includes augmented file information data to aid in diagnostics.

Embedded content management interface

  • It is now possible to include the published Elementi project and other liver sources into playlists.

Bug fixes

  • Accessing the embedded web server via secure HTTPS and using a hostname with a trailing dot would result in a "400 Bad request" error.
  • Incorrect parsing of URLs with a fragment part could prevent using them.

Control Center and configuration

  • Reboot is not detected when enabling redirection from insecure HTTP to secure HTTP.
  • The device report file included the hashed user passwords, although they are protected with a salt the information could be used to mount dictionary attacks. This data is no longer included in the device report file.
  • The embedded web server could occasionally return a "500 Internal Server Error" or garbled responses including a trailing HTML error document when applying some configuration changes.
  • When the "Web storage" is reset the database is re-created with wrong permissions, which prevents the use of web storage from the content creation interface.
  • When restoring the default content the "Web storage" data was not being removed.
  • The device report file did not include the NTP drift file.
  • The EULA had an extraneous extra newline.
  • When both insecure HTTP and secure HTTPS are disabled via a backup file Control Center would show an incorrect entry under Server Security before the unit was rebooted to apply the new configuration.
  • The screen aspect ratio under Display was being ignored and 16:9 was always assumed. This entry has now been removed and a square pixel aspect ratio is assumed by the player, making it easier to use screens which do not have a 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • A browser error could be displayed when activating a server certificate just after importing it.
  • Modification of security settings or via RPC the changes were not applied until next reboot, they are now applied immediately as it was already the case when changing them via Control Center.
  • Activating a server certificate that has spaces or other special characters in the subject's Common Name would make the player unbootable, requiring a reset to factory defaults to recover.
  • It was possible to create users with names including special characters that would either break the web interface or cause the player to restart in recovery mode, names are now fully validated before being accepted.

Embedded content management interface

  • Some schedules could cause the player to reboot in a loop and end in recovery mode, this was a regression introduced in 4.2.0.
  • The scheduling interface could create malformed schedules.
  • An unexpected warning "access denied to view project" is shown to DiVA users when editing a playlist
  • Fixed some incorrect translations of error messages.
  • Miscellaneous UI fixes.
  • When the display was configured for a vertical orientation an image or video directly inserted in the schedule (i.e. not in a playout or playlist) would display in small size surrounded by black borders.

Security

  • Fixed the following security vulnerabilities.
    • NTP updated from 4.2.8p9 to 4.2.8p10 fixing the following security vulnerabilities: CVE-2016-9042, which affects the firmware, and CVE-2017-6464, CVE-2017-6462, CVE-2017-6463, CVE-2017-6458, CVE-2017-6451 and CVE-2017-6460, of which none affect the firmware.
    • In PHP: CVE-2016-9933, CVE-2016-9138, CVE-2016-10158, CVE-2016-10161, CVE-2017-7272, CVE-2016-5399 and CVE-2016-7478, which all affect the firmware, and CVE-2014-9912, CVE-2016-9137, CVE-2016-9935, CVE-2016-9934, CVE-2016-10160, CVE-2016-10159, of which none affect the firmware.

Release 4.2.1 build 2

Version: "Dufourspitze" 4.2.1-2.0.31256. Release date: 18 July 2017.

Known issues

  • (GEN-974) The player might end up in Recovery mode when scheduling an asset like this: first click on the schedule panel to create a new block, then drag & drop the asset on top of the right-side block. The workaround is to just drag & drop the asset directly into the schedule panel instead. This is a regression introduced in 4.2.0 firmware.

Known limitations

Backward compatibility issues

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the following security vulnerabilities.
    • Linux kernel: CVE-2017-1000364 and CVE-2017-6214.
    • glibc: CVE-2017-1000366 (from analysis it seems this issue was not exploitable in the HMP/DiVA).
  • Weather forecasts from OpenWeatherMap could fail to update due to request limiting, access to OpenWeatherMap has been changed in updated jSignage version to eliminate this problem.
    • jSignage.Social.js updated to version 1.1.1 to fix this issue.
    • jSignage.Weather.js updated to version 1.0.2 to fix this issue.

Release 4.2.1

Version: "Dufourspitze" 4.2.1-1.0.31128. Release date: 17 May 2017.

Known limitations

Backward compatibility issues

Bug fixes

Web Interface

  • A Playout scheduled in the past is wrongly displayed. Playout without recurring rules, where displayed as if a daily recurring rule was set without any ends date. This had the effect that events scheduled in the past may be displayed in the screen.
  • Overlapping event may not be displayed. If an event A without recurring rule was displayed on the same time as an event B with recurring rule and event B was ending after event A, then event A was not displayed at all on the screen unless the schedule was saved while event A was active.
  • Event scheduled for tomorrow may not be displayed. If an event (without recursing rules) is scheduled for tomorrow, and there is nothing else in the schedule, then the vent will not be displayed unless the player is restarted on the day of the event.
  • The last event in the schedule may play forever. If an event without recurring rule was set in the schedule and then the schedule is empty, this last event will be displayed until the player is restarted or the schedule is saved again.

Release 4.2.0

Version: "Dufourspitze" 4.2.0-1.0.30965. Release date: 6 April 2017.

Known issues

  • (GEN-898) The content scheduling tool might select the wrong asset to be displayed on the screen, instead of the one that is scheduled for the current time. The workaround for this issue is to remove the assets scheduled in the past. This is a regression introduced in 4.2.0 firmware.

Known limitations

Backward compatibility issues

  • Cross-origin requests on the /rpc and /info endpoints of the embedded web server now require an API key to be provided.

Major features

Web Interface

  • Added the possibility, in HMP300 and HMP350, to add an entry to the top bar of the content management interface, along "Create" and "Schedule", that points to a custom web interface.
    • The start page for this custom web interface should be part of the published project, as interface/index.html or index.html, the latter taking precedence.
    • The "title" element of the start page needs to be present and contain the text to be displayed in the top bar.
    • The start page should not contain absolute links to other files within the project, only relative links are guaranteed to work reliably.
  • The content management interface now allows to upload archived Elementi projects as media elements on HMP300 and HMP350. This allows to easily add richer and more powerful content in playouts. User editable text properties can be edited directly in the interface.

Control Center

  • It is now possible to install SSL certificates for the embedded HTTP server, allowing reliable and secure use of HTTPS.
  • Added the security settings for the embedded web server to harden the device security. Note that Elementi versions before 2017 (a.k.a. 4.2.0) cannot publish to devices automatically discovered if insecure HTTP is redirected or disabled.
    • Always redirect accesses via insecure HTTP (i.e. plain HTTP) to secure HTTP (i.e. HTTPS).
    • Entirely disable insecure HTTP but allow access via secure HTTP.
    • Disable both insecure and secure HTTP. This can only be enabled via RPC or a configuration file since the device can only be controlled via pull-mode RPC after this is enabled.
    • Use of insecure HTTP, as well as secure HTTP, is allowed (default).
  • Added the possibility to disable the secondary Ethernet port of the HMP350 for security purposes, this disables the switch functionality.
  • Saved passwords and other secrets are no longer stored in plain-text in the configuration backup. They are now always encrypted using strong AES-256 encryption.
    • The encryption key is, by default, different on each device. This means that, by default, a configuration backup from one player cannot be restored on another one.
    • Users can set a passphrase that can be shared among players if needed; a configuration backup of one player can be restored on another one if the same passphrase has been set on both.
    • The user passphrase is not stored, it is only used to derive the encryption key in an irreversible way.
    • The encryption key is stored in the new persistent data storage area and hence a backup can be restored even after a reset to factory defaults or firmware reinstall.
    • The encryption key is never exported from the device, so it stays secure.
  • Heightened protection against cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks on Control Center.
  • Cross-origin requests on the /rpc and /info endpoints of the embedded web server now require an API key to be provided or are otherwise rejected. This is done to prevent possible CSRF attacks. This is a non-backwards compatible change, users of cross-origin requests need to enable the API key via Control Center and add the API key to their requests.

Minor features / improvements

Web Interface

  • Improved the Schedule UI with a "clear" button that completely removes all schedule data to make it easier to reset it.
  • Synchronized projects are now supported by the scheduling interface, one can schedule a synchronized project and it will display synchronously as intended.

Control Center

  • Control Center configuration menu HTTPS has been renamed to Trusted Certificates.
  • Passwords are no longer included when loading the Saved Passwords page of Control Center, increasing the security of saved passwords.
  • Changed the default debug log format to include milliseconds in the timestamps.
  • Renamed the /snapshot/snapshot and /snapshot/info URL paths to /status/snapshot and /status/info, solving an issue were these monitoring pages requested a password even if monitoring protection was disabled from the Security page. The old URL paths continue to work for backwards compatibility but remain affected by this issue.

Channels

  • Added support for Microsoft Online accounts.
  • Added support for Facebook accounts.
  • Added support for Instagram accounts.

JavaScript

  • In jSignage, added a spx:maxChars attribute to json-string properties to be able to enforce a maximum length.
  • JavaScript function propFindURL now accepts a depth parameter of "infinity" for recursive listing of remote folders.
  • The JavaScript libraries have been updated to support new functionality.
    • jSignage.js updated to version 1.4.0, exposing new APIs.
    • jSignage.Social.js updated to version 1.1.0, exposing new APIs.
    • jSignage.QRCode.js updated to version to 1.1.1, exposing new APIs.
    • jSignage.Multiscreen.js updated to version 1.0.2, exposing no new APIs.

Misc

  • A new persistent data storage area has been introduced which retains private data which is to be retained across resets to factory defaults and firmware re-installs. This persistent data storage can be reset, erasing all its data, from within the recovery console with the new "reset-persistent-data" configuration change request.
  • The HDMI CEC implementation has been significantly changed, increasing power management and reporting compatibility with displays that are sensitive to message timing or do not implement some CEC features.
  • The Bonjour announcements now include an extra TXT record, "fqdn", that provides the server name that is to be used for secure HTTP (i.e. https) connections to the device.
  • The DeviceInfo variable in UPnP announcements now contains "name" and "fqdn" properties for improved discovery via UPnP.
  • The processor unique ID is now included in the report for improved diagnostics.
  • Add per-port Ethernet carrier, speed and duplex values in the report for improved diagnostics.

Bug fixes

Web Interface

  • When a user was not already logged, the login page always redirect to / regardless of the URI entered by the user.
  • It was possible to create an apps with a very long name, breaking the UI of the content creation interface.
  • User fonts, contained in an Elementi project, could fail to load or be refreshed when using the scheduling interface (HMP300 and HMP350).

Control Center

  • Placeholder values, such as "[serial]", in the pull mode schedule URI would not be kept as-is in the configuration backup, preventing sharing of configuration backups between players.
  • Network tile stays in "Checking..." state indefinitely under some special conditions.
  • Wrong error message when the user mistypes an old password.
  • A network address would show up in the welcome screen of an unconfigured player when no network cable was plugged.
  • An error was shown in the logs when not using the scheduling interface, although that is not an error.
  • Control Center did not request a restart when the device name is changed, although it is required.
  • The UPnP enable / disable option was not reset on a reset to factory defaults.

Security

  • Fixed the following security vulnerabilities.
    • NTP updated from 4.2.8p8 to 4.2.8p9 fixing the following security vulnerabilities: CVE-2016-7431, CVE-2016-7434 and CVE-2016-7433, which all affect the firmware and CVE-2016-9311, CVE-2016-9310, CVE-2016-7427, CVE-2016-7428, CVE-2016-9312, CVE-2016-7429 and CVE-2016-7426, which do not affect the firmware.

  • Make sure that opening the "/main/firmware" page do not trigger a firmware update, but only shows the status of the update in progress.
  • File upload and time processing limits were not correctly set and thus default limits, larger than intended, were being used.
  • Live source may show show an error if they are used on local data, and the local data is modified using pull mode.
  • When an error occurs in the web_storage RPC, the connection was closed twice causing an error in the logs.

JavaScript / jSignage

  • Out of memory conditions in javascript while processing too large data feeds should in most cases avoid a reboot to safe mode
  • Default duration was used erroneously for some playlist items whose duration was set in the playlist
  • Gauge values outside of the gauge range do not cause the cursor to be positioned outside the gauge area
  • Opacity setting was ignored on scrolling text area layers
  • Bottom of some letters on the last list was cut off in scrolling text areas

Miscellaneous

  • Fixed potential crash of IPv4 local-link address monitoring.
  • System logs could be filled with innocuous warnings from avahi when Windows 10 computers are present in the local network, due to an incomplete Bonjour implementation in Windows 10.
  • When HDMI CEC errors occur the logs could be flooded with error messages, these are now suppressed after 10 consecutive events.
  • Frame rate and video size information in the SDP description were not used when streaming with RTP/RTSP . This makes MJPEG streaming work with Axis cameras although it is highly recommended to use H.264 instead
  • The first group of picture was black when connecting to an H.264 RTP/RTSP stream and the first frame number in the stream is 0
  • The pixman library may crash under some rare circumstances.
  • The player could crash if the HTTP connection was closed by a remote server while reading data.

Release 4.0.2

Version: "Gran Paradiso" 4.0.2-1.0.28645. Release date: 4 May 2016.

Known limitations

Minor features / improvements

Display power save

  • Added support for display power saving.
  • For HDMI displays which have CEC enabled, HDMI-CEC is used to turn on or put to standby the display according to the display power saving policy. The display is automatically switched to the correct input when it is turned on.
  • For DVI displays the display saving power management signaling (DPMS) is used to put put the display to standby according to the display power saving policy.
  • Control Center displays a warning when an HDMI display is connected which does not support CEC or has it disabled in its configuration.
  • Control Center now shows the power state of connected displays when available.
  • Note that unlike in firmware 3.x, display power saving is now disabled by default.

Control Center

  • Changed the device images in Control Center to make it easier to recognize the different device models.
  • It is now possible to set up ultra-low latency (200ms, 100ms, or 50ms) using the configuration backup or from advanced mode.
  • Updated the name of the button related to Cockpit. It is now possible to add a player into Cockpit directly from the main Control Center page.
  • A prominent warning is now shown on the web interface when the device is running in safe more or a corrupted firmware is detected.

Miscellaneous

  • The device report now includes information about the package database files to aid in diagnosis of firmware update problems.
  • The device model is now explicitly mentioned in the report for easier diagnostic.
  • Allow the spx:buffering value to be negative so that the streaming latency can be reduced when the user knows that the default 750ms latency for RTP streams is not required.

Web interface

  • Added a "Select all" button to select all visible file in the Create page

Bug fixes

Miscellaneous

  • DNS name resolution stopped working after a few weeks of uptime with Could not resolve hostname xxx: Host not found errors (regression introduced in 4.0.1-2.0.28178). Depending on the number of remote servers used (e.g., remote content, RPC concentrator, Cockpit) the amount of time before the failure starts occurring varies.
  • When a device was started with a DVI display connected and later was changed for an HDMI display without restarting the device, all HDMI functionality would remain disabled and thus HDMI audio output did not work until the device was restarted.
  • When booting the pull mode could sometimes get a transient error obtaining internal device data (e.g., a report) due to a race between the pull mode service and the internal web server startup.
  • There were still some internal operations that could lead a player to hang and need a power cycle to recover.
  • A loss of power while checking for the availability of a firmware update could lead to a corrupted state after which it was no longer possible to update firmware, requiring a re-install from the recovery console.
  • The display co-processor could potentially fail initialization without properly reporting it.
  • Under some rare circumstances the serial port handler could miss a wake-up event.

Media

  • Too many JPEG files may be opened when using transition in multiscreen content.
  • Video files tagged with an incorrect H.264 level, too low for the actual video resolution, failed to decode.
  • Crash when opening some videos that had no frame rate information.

Known limitations

Known issues

  • (#4538) City & temperature cannot be disabled for the Weather app.
  • (#4551) Multiscreen projects are not played in a synchronized manner when being used within the Content scheduling tool of the HMP350. The workaround is to restore the default content on the player, then publish the multiscreen project from Elementi.
  • (#4571) Player restarts at midnight when using daily recurrence without end - this is due to the way the content has been scheduled; the right way to schedule some content to play all the time, is by using the default schedule placeholder.
  • (#4572) Player forgets the scheduled content when using daily recurrence without end - this is due to the way the content has been scheduled; the right way to schedule some content to play all the time, is by using the default schedule placeholder.
  • (#4633) DNS name resolution stopped working after a few weeks of up-time with Could not resolve hostname xxx: Host not found errors (regression introduced in 4.0.1-2.0.28178 by the fix for CVE-2015-7547).

    • Resilience to loss of packets is greatly improved.
    • Program number, audio channel choice and video channel choice can be controlled from an SDP file or with new media layer advanced properties if required.
  • RTSP / RTP support has been updated for better A/V synchronization using the RTCP messages.

Note that the deprecated MMS protocol and HTTP streaming are no longer supported.

Multiscreen

  • Support for using data feed widgets within multiscreen projects (requires setting a network shared variable for synchronization).

Minor features / improvements

Media

  • Official support for .mkv video files and .mka audio files.
  • If a text file or text feed is supposed to be UTF-8 encoded but there are encoding error, a relevant warning is generated.
  • Limit the number of video file related warnings for a single file to avoid them filling up the logs.
  • Playback of interlaced video encoded with MPEG2, H.264 and VC1 now much smoother because it is running at the field rate (double frame rate).
  • New hardware accelerated deinterlacing

Audio

  • Improved compatibility for HE-AAC and WMA.
  • Support for multichannel audio with automatic stereo downmix.
  • More precise audio/video delay control, avoiding audible audio pitch changes.

JavaScript

  • New window.top and window.screen objects in JavaScript.
  • New global SPXTransform event in JavaScript.

jSignage

  • QRCode widget support UTF-8 encoding for international vcards are QRCode generation is now much quicker.
  • Trying to load an alternative version of jSignage or trying to overwrite the global jSignage object will fail and generate a warning.
  • Support time zone conversions for dates before Jan 1st, 1970.
  • Added RGBToHSL(), HSLToRGB() and hsl() functions in jSignage.
  • Added QRCode and Astronomy libraries.
  • jSignage.Graph - added library version number and the 'f' option in ticks.
  • jSignage.QRCode - added support for non-Latin chars.
  • Improved compatibility with IE11 and Edge

Maintenance / Logs

  • All PHP error logging has been moved to the internal syslog
  • The format of the Apache httpd access logs has changed, the cipher and request time are now included.
  • The currently installed firmware version is logged when starting a firmware update for improved diagnostics.
  • Early boot console messages are now saved for improved diagnostics.

Network

  • HTTP authentication has switched from digest to basic for ease of management and compatibility with Control Center forms based authentication
  • Bonjour host names on the local network (e.g. <host-name>.local) are now supported to open connections from the device to other network locations.
  • The DHCP lease is now requested for 15 days (the DHCP server may further limit this duration).

System

  • External USB storage is now formatted as an ext4 file system instead of ext3. External USB storage formatted on firmware 3.x is incompatible with firmware 4.x.
  • Formatting of external USB storage devices up to 2TB are now supported.
  • Timezone data has been upgraded to 2015f
  • Improved RTC recovery. If the internal real-time-clock (RTC) looses the date and time (e.g., due to battery discharge) and the current date and time cannot be obtained via NTP at boot, the time of the last proper shutdown is used as a fallback instead of setting the date to 1970. If the device was not properly shut down the fallback time is no older than one hour before the improper shut down.
  • The firmware updater now checks the signature of the repository metadata in addition to individual package signatures, increasing firmware update security.
  • The internal web server now starts much closer to the end of the boot process; this avoids the risk of doing operations before the necessary services are started.

Bug fixes

Network

  • Always set a header in XMLHttpRequest to decline zip encoding of content.
  • Using partial get also for server not returning an Etag as long as they accept partial get. In such case the last modification date is used to check that the file has not been modified.

Scheduling

  • Bugs in processing of recurrence rules for calendar events.

Media

  • Audio and video were sometimes out of sync.
  • The duration of audio only files was not correctly computed at import.
  • When using large padding value, media size is not correct (and rotated).
  • Unexpected crash when streaming is used in conjunction with playlist and effect.
  • WMAv2 without bit reservoir not supported correctly.

Streaming

  • Crash that could be triggered when saving a document or refreshing its metadata and that document includes a streaming layer.
  • Streaming capture could fail if the target path contained a space character.

JavaScript

  • Global DOM variables must be overwritable.

jSignage

  • Position of minor ticks in graphs and gauges axes was wrong when the baseline value was not zero.
  • Allow area charts without lines.
  • Color of dots in the simple clock widget where not changed when the user configured the color.
  • The date-time widget now accept multiple date format separated by a space: 'LONG_DATE SHORT_TIME' for instance.
  • Gauge attributes: animateBars and animateIndicator, cannot be disabled.
  • Wrong default color used for gradient fill.
  • Incorrect axes draw for negative dataMin.
  • Wrong parameters for stackedAndGroupedHorizontalBarGauge function.
  • Ticks are not at the right position in graph when a starting point different from 0 is used.
  • Gauge issue when using multiple center-positioned texts.
  • Removed global variables in jGraph, as it prevents any other document of using a global variable with the same name.
  • Removed incorrect usage of a global variable "i" in jSignage.
  • When using the countdown widget, and the count unit set to days, the number of days may is incorrect if the end of the timer is not in the same month as the current day.
  • Infinite loop (causing HMP to crash) could be triggered if a wrong date format was used in one of the feed widgets, or the date-time widgets.
  • Date of format RFC822 and ISO8601 are automatically converted to dates if a date formatting is applied to them. Other date formats need to be explicitly parsed as date. Note that this trigger a small backward compatibility issue for feeds widgets using a date format not RFC822/ISO8601 but that was recognized by the JavaScript Date() constructor.
  • In a feed widget, if a data is not a date, and a date formatting is applied to it, display the raw data and some something like "LONG_DATE2015"
  • Added the zoom transition in playlist when random is chosen.

Maintenance / Logs

  • The CPU usage reported in the log could be above 100%.
  • The uploader.log file could overflow before being rotated and earlier log messages lost, the size has been increased to 30MB to avoid this
