Serendipity Blackmagic 7.0.01 Released
November 28, 2016 10:16PM
As part of Serendipity Software's ongoing effort to update and improve our software, we are pleased to announce the release of the Serendipity Blackmagic version 7.0.01.

Version 7.0.01 includes all version 7.0 patch updates along with further enhancements and bug fixes:

NEW FEATURES / ENHANCEMENTS
-The user interface within the Workbench application for the Media and Output datatype items has been updated to match the tabbed panel style as used for Jobticket. All options remain available, organised into relevant areas within each database item. Some functions are now presented differently for clarity.
- Sped up the processing of PDF files which perform a large number of ICCBased colourspace changes.
- Drop folder support added for jobs submitted within subdirectories. Directories are automatically deleted once all files in them have been processed.
- i1 Pro2 driver spot measurement support added for chart reading. This is useful for medias which cause the strip reader mode to fail.
- The Epson SC-S40600, SC-S60600, and SC-S80600 Precision Dot drivers now support RGB colourspace.
- When switching Medias via the Change Media option in Paper Profile, all previous measurements and settings are retained if the driver, resolution and colourspace are the same.
- Renaming a C5 printer now also renames the underlying Pagesetup, Media, and Output which in turn renames the printer drop folder.
- Onscreen lists containing large numbers of items now update significantly faster.
- Pagesetup Pools selected in the Submit window no longer assign a Jobticket by default.
- Qt framework updated to version 5.6.0.
- The following Epson printer drivers are now compatible with C5: Epson SC-S30600, SC-S40600, SC-S50600, SC-S60600, SC-S70600, SC-S80600.
- C5 can now use Local Print Queue as a connection method for printers.
- Added support for Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 / PRO-4000, PRO-520 / PRO-540 printers.
- Added support for the Inca Onset S40 series of printers.
- C5 can now utilise the Media Catalogue to automatically download media packs. An "Online Media Catalogue" button replaces the "Download Media Packs" link in the Media Library tab.
- The EAE Soft Proof Interface press agent driver now supports section-based pagination.
- Added support for Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S / PRO-6000S, PRO-540S / PRO-560S printers.
- Added support for Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000, PRO-500 printers.
- Added support for CET Color Q5 series and K2 series printers.
- Spectro application is now able to load (Lab only) special colour data directly from individual jobs in the QueueManager for verification purposes.
- Epson SC-P20000 Precision Dot driver now utilises internal printer calibration data unique to each printer when printing.
- Added support for HP Pagewide XL series of printers.
- Improved HP JetDirect protocol support when publishing Pagesetup IP printers on later versions of Mac OS X.
- Monitor Printer Status now displays the firmware version for compatible Epson printers.

BUG FIXES
- Fixed a bug with the Epson SC-P7000 driver where the printer would generate wrong paper size and wrong paper path errors in monitor printer status if imprecise cut sheet sizes were used.
- Fixed a bug where loading a job in SoftProof from Press Agent would open multiple SoftProof tabs if multiple versions of the same publication page were available.
- Fixed a bug in the Workbench where the "Export as C5 pack" option was exporting the media pack without including ICC profiles.
- Fixed a bug where the Serendipity Client would timeout when trying to load an archive with an output that had printer status monitoring enabled for a printer that doesn't exist on the current network. A defective Pagesetup would be created, causing jobs to fail.
- Fixed a bug where sending a calcheck job to the Epson Spectroproofer and cancelling it after printing has started would cause the printer to change network assigned TCP/IP address.
- Fixed a bug where a replace colour set was not being recognised when a PDF was submitted to a Pagesetup with a set assigned.
- Fixed a bug where the Fail on RGB option in the Jobticket Postscript/PDF options was not functioning for PDF files with only RGB images.
- Fixed a bug where dongle rescue mode would activate if no dongles were plugged in and a Server was run. This was caused by a USB Card Reader device being plugged in at the time. Mac OS Issue only.
- Fixed a bug that occurred when using a version 7 pre-sale dongle. The displayed time left was always 0 days. This did not affect the functioning or expiry of the dongle.
- Fixed a bug where page 2 of a multi-page PDF file is stretched when using asymmetric resolution and rotation.
- Fixed a bug where version 7 pre-sale demo dongles would stop working with 6 days still remaining.
- Fixed a bug where the version 7 driverless dongle, pre-sale demo could not be updated when expired.
- Fixed a bug where the PDF printer driver would generate corrupted files once the output file exceeded 2GB in size.
- Fixed a bug where PDF files which contained a stream larger than 2GB would generate a blank page, ignoring all the contents of the stream.
- Fixed a bug when using multiple displays on Windows platforms - a SoftProof launched via the TouchConsole would switch to the wrong display when entering full screen mode.
- Fixed a bug that occurred when rendering a job to a media and output using different drivers. Jobs will now fail and print an error message.
- Fixed a bug where new Paper Profiles could not be created.
- Fixed a bug where the Epson SC-S80600 Precision Dot driver would fail to render when using CMYK colourspace without white or metallic ink.
- Fixed a bug where shutting down status monitoring for Epson printers could take a long time causing command timeouts on the Client.
- PDF transparency mask fixes.
- IPP printing from Mac OS X El Capitan was not working.
- The Serendipity Client would crash on exit when running on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008R2.
- Arrow keys work again for moving up and down the Workbench items list.
- JPEG files which included Photoshop APP markers longer than 64KB are now handled correctly. The bug caused the image resolution to not be read correctly when processing the file.
- Fixed a bug where the C5 media name was no longer visible in the printer media panel. Attempting to change then save the configured media resulted in an error.
- Lineariser density mode CMYK text file (CMYK and KCMY sample order) instruments now correctly import measured values.
- Fixed a bug where version 7 dongles could cause Server processing to halt under certain conditions.
- Fixed a bug where the Paper Profile editor was not clearing last loaded density patches in some cases.
- Fixed a Workbench crash that could occur when duplicating or creating many new items.
- Fixed a bug where selecting pages from a specific publication section would sometimes display the wrong page in SoftProof.
- Fixed a bug where the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 / PRO-4000, PRO-520 / PRO-540 driver could not be configured if a model other than the imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 was connected.
- Fixed a bug where the SoftProof section viewer and TouchConsole Show Pages panel did not display all available publication sections under certain conditions.
- Fixed a bug where Ink Limit Chart jobs would fail if submitted to a job that used Colour Keys.
- Fixed a bug where the Serendipity Updater for the standalone Serendipity Client on Mac OS X would crash when run from the program icon.
- Fixed a bug where advanced black and white print modes did not work correctly in the Epson SC-P20000 with Epson Precision Dot driver.
- Fixed a bug where the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 / PRO-4000, PRO-520 / PRO-540 driver could fail to parse status information returned by the printer.
