Carousel 7.4.7

May 30, 2019
  • CSL-2600 - Windows Player Crash to Desktop Intermittently - Fixed an issue where an internal non-critical error could cause the Carousel Windows Player to exit silently. The Windows Player isn't configured to auto-restart out of the box so this caused the displays to sit on the Windows desktop, requiring user intervention.
  • CSL-2622 - RDA Commands Do Not Work Following the Security Fixes - RDA commands now work as expected. A previous security fix had disabled the functionality.
  • CSL-1233 - Windows Player Exits on Keys Other then Escape - Windows-based Carousel Players only exit to desktop when the Escape key is pressed.
  • CSL-2385 - Zones Endpoint Fails If Bulletins Have NULL GroupIDs -Improved the Carousel Installer's database migration when upgrading Carousel versions.
  • CSL-2483 - Excluded words list causing RSS Crawl bulletins to continue to output - Carousel Players will no longer display RSS crawls that have been removed from the rotation due to the presence of excluded words.
  • CSL-2608 - Some Supported File Types Cannot be Uploaded - Restored the ability to upload specific media formats used by the Windows and Brightsign players. The list of supported file formats is the following: JPG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, ICO, TTF, OTF, WOFF, WOFF2, SVG, EOT, MOV, M4V, MP4, AIFF, M4A, MP3, WAV, CSS, HTML, HTM, JS, XML, JSON, DAT, ZIP, 7Z, CSL, MPG, MPEG, WMV, SDP, DV, ASF, AVI, MP2, WMA, TIF, TIFF
  • CSL-2624 - Carousel Rendering Service Sometimes Fails To Start - Fixed an issue where the Carousel Rendering Service could fail to start while the system was starting up because it couldn't reach the database server.
  • CSL-2684 - after upgrading 6.x to 7.x, user can no longer edit channels in the channel editor - Fixed an issue where editing a channel caused an error "The zone with Id 0 does not exist.". This could happen following an upgrade from Carousel 6 to Carousel 7.
  • CSL-2691 - Adding Background Audio Files to an Existing Playlist Mixes the New Files Between Existing - Fixed an issue where the order of channel background audio was not always predictable.
