Deadline Release:
Wednesday, 05 July 2017 08:10

This is the fifth revision release for Deadline 9.0. It fixes a few bugs that have been reported during the 9.0 release cycle and adds some minor improvements, including support for Silhouette 6 and Unreal Engine “offline” render.

General Improvements:

  • Improved how the Deadline applications deal with Event Sandbox crashes/lockups.
  • Reports will now be generated when the Event Sandbox crashes and/or stops responding.
  • Added the ability to disable the Event Sandbox for the Slave, Pulse, and Monitor applications in the Repository Configuration.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in the wrong CPU core count being shown in the CPU Affinity section of the Local Slave Controls.
  • Made some performance improvements to the Housecleaning and Repository Repair operations.
  • Overhauled the Draft and Project Management panels in the submitters to make them more intuitive.
  • The Deadline version number is now included when the local application logs for the Deadline applications roll over to the next day.
  • The process used by the Deadline applications to get the machine’s MAC address is now more reliable on Linux.
  • Fixed a bug where task times were being saved when the job failed.
