MLServer 3.75 Release notes and info

Postby CinemarDave » Sun May 31, 2009 11:47 pm

MLServer 3.75 is now available for general download. It has replaced version 3.0.591 in MLInstaller.

This version uses a new registration email process. Emails are now sent directly to the Cinemar Email server using port 1501. This should eliminate activation requests going unanswered.

This version of MLServer also introduces a new MLWorker Agent process. Unlike the old agent that would spawn multiple copies of itself the new MLWorker Agent stays running whenever MLServer is running. The new multi-threaded Agent is doing a lot of the time consuming tasks that used to bog down MLServer.

Adds the |NoCache switch to the web server GetImage command. Append this switch to the end of the URL to make sure an image is never retrieved from cache.

9/27/2009 Version 3.75.70

Modifies the MLServer Macro command to support nested Macros. That is Macros that call other Macros. In order to use this feature all you have to do is modify the macro delimiter on each nested level. The innermost macro will use a single ! as the delimiter. The next layer out will use !! as the delimiter, the next outer layer will use !!!. Macros can be nested up to 4 levels deep with this version.

For example:

Code: Select all


Macro|MLConditional|IsEqual##Something##1##Macro|Setvariable|Var1~1!SetVariable|Var2~2##Macro|Setvariable|Var1~3!SetVariable|Var2~4##!!SetVariable|AllDone~1

9/29/2009 Version 3.75.71

Modifies the Macro processing logic to accept Macro commands that only contain one MLServer command.

Macro|MLCmd|{{clientname}}~setProperty|RemoteFX2~move~-1024~0~2 is technically not a macro since it only includes one step. It would comsume less CPU cycles if the command was simply MLCmd|{{clientname}}~setProperty|RemoteFX2~move~-1024~0~2

However it should be valid to issue such a command and the macro processing change that was in v70 didn't allow for this condition.

MLServer 3.75.71 has been updated to allow for this syntax.

Thanks Dave. That keeps things consistent. As a matter of practice, I often start a macro with only one command, save it and then come back to add other commands as necessary. So I have lots of macros with only one command. And if I'm not mistaken, when you create a new macro, it always adds "Macro|" to the first command ... so it's much better to let it be. What's a few extra CPU cycles among friends. :lol:
