Smedge 2014 Update 1 Alpha 3 is ready. This is a big one for Linux users, as I found 4 possible causes of random crashes that are addressed and should help improve reliability for everyone. Also, there are new PoolManager commands that let you sleep groups of machines or run an immediate command on all nodes in a Pool. Here are the download links:




Issues addressed in this release:

Feature #2271: New PoolManager commands: Sleep and Run
Feature #2275: Error detection highlights error and ignore keywords for finding and ignoring errors
Change #2270: JobHistory lets you select between total time or last run time for work time display
Change #2273: Component system now preserves -LogWithPID when starting component processes
Change #2276: Use wait4 to get accurate stats from the OS about process usage at termination
Change #2277: Thread information table uses RWLock instead of Mutex
Bug #2237: Image size check failure is not in job history
Bug #2267: User limits has inconsistent display and does not remove limits
Bug #2269: Possible GUI crash trying to VNC to engine from history if no history is selected
Bug #2272: Check File Sequence crash with invalid file list
Bug #2266: Random SIGSEGV in logging
Bug #2268: JobHistory gets incorrect run time for currently running work when it connects
