« on: November 11, 2006, 01:44:24 AM »
Aloha Folks,

We have found a "show-stopper" bug in the previous release, 4.0-8, and have corrected it.
We're releasing this fixed version as 4.0-9.  If you have already downloaded and installed
4.0-8, please download and use this new 4.0-9 version instead.

For your convenience, the changes that went into the 4.0-8 release is pasted below.

Thank you!

We've made changes to our XSI jobtype, and have posted a new version to our ftp site.

The new version adds:

* XSI 5.11 support
* more robust executable search in various paths on the worker
* more robust I/O error checking
* better multi-pass rendering support

and a few bug fixes.

You may download it here:

Thank you,

@FEATURE: XSI v5.11 support

This release adds support for XSI 5.11.

@FEATURE: robust executable search

Now the jobtype searches for the xsibatch exectuable in the
environment variable PATH, paths stored in the windows registry
(for windows only), and the standard "default" locations, in
that order. 

@FEATURE: robust I/O error check

Now the input scenefile is checked for existence and readability,
and the output directories for writability. 

@FEATURE: listbox for pass selection

The in-application submission dialog now supports a listbox,
instead of a pull-down menu, to allow for submissions of
2 or more specific passes at once.

@BUGFIX: job submissions with "blocked" status

jobs submitted with "blocked" status now blocks when entering
the system.

@BUGFIX: job submissions with "domain"

jobs submitted with "domain" specified now work as expected.

@BUGFIX: specifying "All passes" plus another pass

Specifying "All passes" AND one or more individual pass used to
fail the job.  It now works as expected (renders all passes once).
