Qube! 6.5-2 WranglerView maintenance release is available
« on: January 02, 2014, 11:42:56 PM »
A new 6.5-2 maintenance release is now available for the Qube 6.5 WranglerView. This is a recommended release for all customers running Qube v6.5.

See for the complete release notes.

    New features
@NEW: resubmission can optionally not raise a window for each job

@NEW: "Maya --> Qube --> Submit Maya Render Job per layer" is now offered an
"auto-submit subsequent jobs"checkBox below the Submit button in each
submission UI when more than 1 layer is present in the scene.  Checking this
box will supress the display of all following jobs for the submission list, and
can be checked at any point in the submission cycle.

@NEW: provide help dialogs for job, running instances, and worker search

@NEW: qube executable's argument --submitDict can now be supplied multiple
times to allow for the submission of multiple jobs in one pass.  All jobs
submitted belong to the pgrp of the first job.

@NEW: add 'memusage' column to the running instances view

@NEW: add "auto-submit MXI merge job" option to Maxwell render submission UI,
suppresses display of MXI merge job UI

@NEW: for Maya "job per layer" submissions, if a layer specifies renderable
cameras, automatically fill in the "cameras" box ZD: 10123

@NEW: add 'worker_boot_delay' parameter to worker config dialog, not present in
"configure on supervisor" dialog due to it's being a "bootstrap" parameter that
can not be applied via the central worker config file

@NEW: add internal path translation to pyNuke jobtypes, allows for path
translation to happen at the time the job runs on the worker.

@NEW: add a "running instance" count to the "Farm Usage" message printed in the
upper-right of the WV interface.

@FIX: WranglerView won't start on 32-bit Fedora-8: AttributeError: 'MenuItem'
object has no attribute 'GetItemLabelText'

@FIX: remove QB_CONVERT_PATH from outputPath entries

@FIX: remove QB_CONVERT_PATH from re-submitted jobs

@FIX: unable to save external prefs file: KeyError: 'studioDefaultsPrefsFile'

@FIX: right side of controls hidden behind vertical scroll bar on Windows and
linux; exhibits in all submission UI's in expert mode, and Maya and some others
at all times.

@FIX: skip render layers defined in referenced scenes.  ZD: 10010

@FIX: at startup with user filter enabled, don't show other users running jobs

@FIX: performance improvement for Performance Charts; avoid unnecessary INNER
JOIN operation when querying time-based tables, only do it when selecting "all
dates" or "custom" time frame.

@FIX: date range selector pull-down does not update other chart tabs when 'Use
the same date range' is checked and 'Custom' date range is selected

@FIX: 'retry failed frames' can crash requestQueue when no instances to retry

@FIX: update workerList and bannedHost tab when a worker is remove via the
worker context menu

@FIX: AE submissions don't respect the renderQueue item's renderSettings'
"custom" frame range values

@FIX:Allow spaces in Maxwell folder/file names.

@FIX: worker_drive_map and worker_path_map not correctly saved via "Configure
local host", format to match API updatelocalconfig expectations

@FIX: C4D AppUI install missing .tif files, pyHoudini AppUI missing .otl

@FIX: mysql database repair loops indefintely when a brute-force 'use-frm'
table repair fails

    Changes in behavior
@CHANGE: Windows-only: DesktopWorker is now stopped/started by a system tray
"workertray.exe" utility,  and does not run in a cmd prompt.  WV Admin worker
start/stop menu items now manage the workertray utility, which starts the
worker indirectly

@CHANGE: remove dependencies between Windows MSI installers, any qube component
can be installed or uninstalled independent of the others

@CHANGE: only enable job/instance/frame context menu items if they're valid
operations based on the job/instance/frame status and the user has the
necessary permissions to perform the operation; disable "blocked" for blocked,
failed, killed, complete jobs, only enable "unblocked" for blocked jobs, etc.

@CHANGE: automatically set the job's requirement if a job 'kind' is specified

@COSMETIC: show the job 'kind' in the main job properties tab if present

@CHANGE: mentalray verbosity now defaults to 5 (Progress & Info), instead of no
default value
