[May 6, 2016] Signiant Support Announcement - Manager+Agents 12.1 Release

Dear Signiant Customer,

Signiant is pleased to announce general availability of the Signiant Manager+Agents and Media Exchange V12.1 software today. This release includes growing file support, which is the ability to begin sending files as soon as the file starts to be written rather than waiting for the file write to complete. This allows for an overall reduction in file transfer times and is particularly effective in enabling highly efficient workflows for sports, news, and other live event production. 
In addition to the support for growing files, below are a few key features and enhancements included in this release:
  • Support for RedHat 7 clusters. 
  • Support for SMTP authenticated mail servers.
  • New alarms to notify administrators when the webserver certificate is nearing expiry. 
  • Improved password management to allow for more restrictive passwords. 
  • Media Exchange load balancing has been updated to distribute transfers among available agents more efficiently.
  • Updates to REST API to include support for Agents, Agent Groups and Job Groups.
  • Support for the latest releases of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge.
For further details on all new features and enhancements, and for customers upgrading from previous releases, please refer to the release notes.
