The fifth point release ofV2 brings great new additions, many improvements and important bug fixes:
V2 2.5 now offers a new license management system: For every renderer and its versions, you can now specify how many licenses are available and which pools and clients own a license. This avoids having new jobs sent to clients even if there currently is no free license slot available, eliminating common license problems.
InV2 2.5, it is no longer only possible to create individual user accounts, but to also create entire user groups. Every account can now belong to such a group, making creating and managing accounts faster and easier.
In order to get information about the various objects inV2, you had to directly query its database in previous versions. With this new point release, the console remote controller can be used to query data from the server, including net jobs and their chunks, pools and clients. This data, which comes in the XML format, can then be used, for example, to put statistics about your render farm on a website or to evaluate rendering times to calculate the costs of a job.
There are also several improvements for net jobs, like net job tags (which can be used for quick filtering) and net job coloring, as well as the ability to execute post-net job events either on success or on failure.
This is by far not everything this new point release has to offer. Be sure to visit our website for more details and a free trial download!
