What's new and what's fixed!

Carousel 7.1.1

March 1, 2018
  • CSL-1116 - BrightSign  Players Update Multiple Addresses
    It is now possible to configure both  an internal and an external Carousel server URL from within the Carousel user  interface. These URLs can then be used when creating BrightSign player's  setup script. This allows users to select which server URL the player should  use to communicate with the server.
  • CSL-837 - Players  can stop updating content
    Fixed an issue where players could  get into a state where they were unable to download new content because of a  dynamic bulletin with no content that didn't render a final.jpg file.
  • CSL-1080 - Player  Are Showing as Unlicensed After Upgrade to 7.1
    Fixed an issue where a Windows player  would report that there were no licenses available after upgrading. Windows  players will now check in as expected after an upgrade.
  • CSL-1124 - Changing  a Bulletin Block to a Web Picture or Picture Block Throws Error When Trying  to Save
    Fixed an issue where changing a block  in a bulletin or template to a web picture block or a picture block would  throw an error when trying to save. You are now able to save bulletins and  templates with web picture and picture blocks without issue.
  • CSL-1168 - Bulletins  and Templates Can Lose Media When Exported
    Fixed an issue where exporting a  channel via the Clone tool could cause bulletins and templates to lose  pictures and videos if the bulletins or templates were moved or copied to a  different zone prior to the export.
  • CSL-1034 - Language  Falls Back to English if a Supported Language is Not First in the Browser  Language List
    Fixed an issue where any browser  language choices other than the first rank choice would be ignored when  determining which language to display. Carousel will now properly fall back  to the first supported language from the requested languages.
  • CSL-1039 - Player  Setting Passwords Are Lost After Editing a BrightSign Player
    Fixed an issue where saving a  BrightSign player's settings would clear out all of the player specific  passwords for DWS, SSH, and WiFi. This caused the players to have a  configuration mismatch even if no settings were changed. That will not longer  happen and passwords cannot be empty.
  • CSL-1210 - Flash  Message Is Incorrect When Deleting a Single Player
    Fixed an issue with the flash message  displayed when deleting a single player.
  • CSL-1214 - Clicking  Cancel When Editing Players Does Not Revert Some Changes
    Fixed and issue where canceling out  of editing a player would save some settings. It now reverts all settings  when canceling out of the player edit screen.
