Resolved Issues
Specific additions and bug fixes that are included in this release are detailed below.
For the movetree action, previews are now correctly copied for files placed in subfolders that were created in the destination source folder as part of the action.
The imagetox command now embeds XMP data when when converting images into PNG format. This feature is available because the PNG library (libpng) has been upgraded to version 1.5.
Files with names starting with ~$, typically temporary owner files created by Microsoft Word, are ignored if users attempt to load them.
Improved processing when Xinet installations are syncing volumes to the database using synvoltodb -delnorm. The -delnorm option used to set all files across all folders offline by default, recursively down the tree (Online=0). This default has been changed to set only one folder off at a time, and not offline (Online=3) so they still show online to browsers. We also streamlined recursive sync to copy paths down the file system tree less often, which should result in a performance improvement.
Added a new date setting section, [Log Rotate], to the dblogd.conf file to allow for separate scheduling of rotation for the log files trigger.log and venture.log (they are both rotated together).
Improved behavior when running syncxmp on a JPEG file with corrupt IPTC records. Changed the XMP library to ignore corrupt IPTC records, and only look at the first one in a Photoshop Resource Block.
Improved the man page help for the ksrm command to list the -r (recursive) option.
Fixed a Xinet bug that caused the last option in an KASPubVols entry line to be ignored by Xinet SMB modules. (KASPubVols is the AppleShare list of public volumes.)
Improved robustness for starting dblogd after a server restart.
When a requested fileID does not exist, portalDI now exits more gracefully with a 404 error.
Fixed the solrutil utility to handle the moving of Solr core data from one location to another, with the following solrutil option:
Improved the solrutil program to better detect a corrupt database where file IDs are out of range. The program now skips out-of-range file IDs when it encounters them, rather than crashing.
Improved robustness of the Venture database daemon (dblogd) which could crash when encountering a filename at the maximum length of 255 characters.
Moved the solr.lock file from /tmp to /usr/etc/venture/var.
