What's New in Qube! 6.10-0
  • Online Performance Reports - Accessible through the metered licensing website, we introduce Online Performance Reporting which are by-the-minute reports that provide users with actionable data on how their Supervisors are doing at any given time. With an initial focus on operations and stability, the graphs will reveal site stress, distribution rates and other data points that help wranglers reallocate and troubleshoot. For 6.10-0, online performance reporting is only available for Linux platforms. Support for OS X and Windows will be added in the future.
  • Online License Keys - Perpetual license keys created for Qube! 6.10 and after will now be downloaded via the metered licensing website. Additional information on license history and total worker numbers is also available, with more management features planned for the future.
  • Microsoft Azure Beta Integration - During the beta release of this feature in Qube! 6.10-0, users will have command line access to Microsoft Azure, allowing them to start and stop cloud nodes from within Qube!. Plans for Azure node management through ArtistView are underway.
  • Clarisse Renderer Support - Clarisse renders can now be dispatched from within Qube! via command line, in app, and load once job submissions.
  • Updated Shotgun Integration - The integrated Shotgun user interface has undergone several minor improvements:
    • Qube! Images to Movie submission will pull in specific data from Shotgun
    • the movie upload script has been updated, fixing a major bug that prevented automated movie uploading to the professional project management tool
  • Partner Licensing Daemon – This helper Daemon will be the foundation for future cloud service provider integrations.
  • C4D Take System – Available only in ArtistView, Qube! now supports submission for the Cinema 4D Take System.
  • EXR Support in Modo – Create one job submission per EXR layer from Modo.
  • Deferred Table Creation – Added as an option in a previous version of Qube!, this optimization for submitting a large number of jobs simultaneously will be on by default starting with 6.10-0.
  • Job Modification – Modifications made to jobs will now run multi-threaded as opposed to running single threaded as they did in previous versions of Qube!, and additional verbosity will be available in logs for jobs that were modified.
  • Linux Platform Support – Added support for CentOS 7.3.
Deprecation
With this version of Qube!, we will no longer be supporting the XSI and MTOR job types.
