A new 6.1-3 maintenance release is now available for the QubeGUI v6.1. This is a recommended release for all customers running QubeGUI v6.1.

Below is a list of the fixes and enhancements.


@CHANGE:        Add 'subscription pack' paths, support for Maya 2012

@CHANGE:        Create a backup file before overwriting license file

@CHANGE:        Use 'sc start/stop' instead of "net start/stop" for starting windows services - more fwd-compatible

@CHANGE:        Desktop worker window is minimized at startup

@CHANGE:        Retire the hostGrid widget across all 6.x release branches

@CHANGE:        Provide a sane set of layout defaults so that the GUI is layed out somewhat appropriately the first time
                it's started, or after the prefs file is deleted.

@CHANGE:        Add support for Windows 64-bit Cinema 4D executable

@CHANGE:        Add functionality in AfterEffect submission UI to automatically only submit 1 subjob with 1 partition
                for movie format files

@CHANGE:        Set outputPath, outputFormat, and appendExtension as required arguments to resolve most common causes of
                failure in Blender jobs.

@CHANGE:        Add a second password textCtrl to QubeGUI->Admin->RegisterWindowsPassword dialog for double-entry
                confirmation.  adheres to standard password creation or change convention, which requires the same value
                be entered twice.

@FIX:           Handle case where database_host defined in the supervisor as

@FIX:           Handle print reporting if non-int dependency for downstream dependencies.

@FIX:           Fix bug when trying to display job output when not using PIL

@FIX:           Properly create new license file on Windows when it does not exist; was impacting new installations, had
                to create the license file by hand instead of using the File->Install License menu item

@FIX:           Properly distinguish between worker service/daemon and the desktop worker, makes stopping worker more

@FIX:           Correctly set permissions on worker journal file

@FIX:           Correctly start and stop the DesktopWorker on OSX

@FIX:           Simplecmd submission UI's now respect the client_priority and supervisor_default_priority settings (in
                that order), and no longer always set the priority to 9999

@FIX:           Fix crashbug in Fedora 14 when initializing charts - don't cast argument list as a set, strips ordering

@FIX:           Find worker_journal_file for fixing write permissions by querying running worker config

@FIX:           Swap '\' direction in outputPath from \ -> / , was causing paths to be invalid on Windows when '\' was
                followed by character that could be interpreted as a control character (\\, \r, \n, etc).

@FIX:           Handling GUI crash case when submitting from maya and the user's home directory does not exist.

@FIX:           Handle print reporting if non-int dependency for downstream dependencies.

@FIX:           Address "KeyError exception" thrown if Worker refreshed with no changes and the Configuration Panel is
                visible.  Was causing GUI to stop refreshing, progress gas guage in lower-left would never decrement.
