Version 4.0.5457.19473 Releases 12/10/2014

Today's Update
1) Adds a new PlaySound command for playing audio files from the server using the Windows default sound card. You can now play any audio file from the server including all the TechTalker files.

The command syntax is
PlaySound|<<path to any audio file>>
PlaySound|sounds\test.mp3

You can also chain Playsound commands together in a Macro like

Macro|PlaySound|sounds\At the Tone The Time Is.mp3!PlaySound|sounds\{{currenthr}}.mp3!PlaySound|sounds\{{currentampm}}.mp3

The AVAgent was also updated to support a similar PlaySound command. The only difference is that you must pass the full UNC path to the audio file to make sure the Agent can correctly access it.

AV|<<id>>~PlaySound|<<UNC path to any audio file>>
AV|2~PlaySound|\\mlserver\v4mlserver\sounds\test.mp3

2) Adds new web services for DVDLobby browsing.

MLServer version 4.0.5531.26808 release 02/23/2015

This version
1) Adds updated third party DLLs to support MLServer and other device drivers and apps. These updated DLLS also force an update to the .NET Machine.config file.
2) Adds the capability to specify a Sunrise or Sunset option plus offset to the time that scheduled tasks are run. You can now define scheduled tasks that a run at sunrise or sunset on the day specified.
3) Adds the capability to stream media files movies and music from MLServers user web server. An example of this in operation can be seen when playing movie trailers on the sample scenes.

PLEASE let me know if you experience any issues installing this update. It has been tested on several machines here without any issues.

MLServer version 4.0.5545.28082 Release 03/09/2015

Today's Update

1) Restores the old method of writing responses to web clients. The new method caused a few MLServer installs to crash. This update will no longer crash MLServer in those few instances. The reason for the crash was the new method was closing the response before all the data was written to the client. The original method (the one back in use) flushes the write buffer before closing the response.

2) Fixes an issue in defining scheduled tasks that fire at sunrise or sunset. Previously those events did not fire.

3) Adds a new task scheduling option to run a task at a specified time of day but alter the time by a random number of minutes. For example. If you were going on vacation and wanted to turn on or off some lights at random intervals instead of fixed times then you could use this new option.

4) Modifies the lighting web service so you can build lists filtered by type of load. For example if you wanted to dynamically build a list of lights for the kitchen you would use the web service "/getdata/lighting/show/kitchen" but if you were only interested in seeing the shades in the kitchen on your scene you'd modify the service url to append the type of lighting device you are interested in like "/getdata/lighting/show/kitchen/shade" for only the shades.

MLServer version 4.0.5765.18263 Release 10/14/2015

Today's Update

Modifies the evaluation of automation rules. With this update all automation rules are evaluated on their own thread. Previously all the rules were evaluated in order on the main thread single file. Now each rule is spun off on its own thread and evaluated independently. Only users with many (> 50) automation rules defined should see any difference. This should greatly reduce the likelihood of a time based rule being missed because it took too long to evaluate.

MLServer and Content Manager were updated today. If you use Content Manager on the same PC as MLServer please make sure to install both as they share a common set of support DLLs.

The server was updated to include support for the latest WebSockets protocol which Google has recently started using. Please let me know if you see the server logging any issues related to websockets communication.
