Welcome to Xinet version 19.0 : Release Notes Xinet 19 : Release Notes Xinet 19.0.1

Release Notes Xinet 19.0.1
Release Date: February 8, 2017
What’s New for 19.0.1
This fix release provides various enhancements on the Xinet 19.0 release:
Fixed an issue with Xinet SMB, so that users can now log in to Xinet via SMB2 after January 10th
In the Xinet 19.0 release, we didn't turn off the Beta expiration feature for Linux 7 distributions. We released a fix immediately and made it available in the Download section on our website. This fix is incorporated into this release.
Xinet-CM browser extension for Safari 10 is now a Safari App extension
We converted the Xinet Contextual menu Browser extension for Safari from a Javascript Extension to a Safari App Extension. This means that users are no longer prompted with a security alert. Safari App Extensions are supported for Safari 10 on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and higher.
Increased the maximum index length for path tables from 768 to 3000 characters for InnoDB databases
We changed the maximum index length for the path, activepath and filerename tables for InnoDB to 3000 characters. The default InnoDB table format was limited to 767, less than the MyISAM limit of 1000. This change prevents problems that were occurring because of this limit mismatch.
Implemented a pre-locked mode for Asset Timer
We re-implemented a pre-locked mode for the Asset Timer into our Marquee site. If it is configured, users will be warned if an asset is about to expire and the Asset Timer icon will show as an unlocked lock. The number of days is configurable in the site settings.
Added support for RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.3 and CentOS 7.3
Version 7.3 of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)/CentOS operating system is now supported for Xinet Server 19.0.1 and Xinet Portal 19.0.1. Linux 7.3 includes Samba version 4.4.x. We have updated our SMB2 support to work with this samba version.

Installation Instructions
Xinet 19 ships with a new version of Solr (Solr 6.2.1) to improve stability and performance. This new version requires your Solr search index to be reindexed, and to ensure this happens the Xinet19 installer automatically deletes the old Solr index, which would no longer be functional due to incompatibilities in data formats between Solr versions. You will need to reindex your Solr index database. This may take some time to complete, depending on the size of your Xinet environment. Please be aware that Java 1.8 is required to run Solr 6.2.1. If you are not already running Java 1.8, we recommend upgrading to this version prior to the Xinet installation.
Set Up File Sharing
SMB file sharing will automatically be installed with the Xinet installers for the Linux platform as long as the appropriate samba packages are installed and up to date.
Prior to installing Xinet, run:
# yum install samba
