    Changes (since 4.1.0 release)

    • Improved handling of onMetaData events for incoming MPEG-TS and RTP streaming (added @setDataFrame to events)
    • Improved handling of onMetaData events in transcoder to properly preserve @setDataFrame events
    • Added support for definition of the "securityPublishValidEncoders" string property in the VHost.xml Root/VHost/Properties section. If the "securityPublishValidEncoders" is not set in the VHost.xml, it defaults to "Wirecast/|FME/|FMLE/|Wowza GoCoder*", setting it overwrites the default value. If the "securityPublishValidEncoders" is defined in the Application.xml, this supersedes the value defined in VHost.xml and the default definition
    • Enhanced the Startup Streams Monitor Module to also watch the files modified time, defaulted to off unless the property "startupStreamsMonitorFileModification" is set to true. This will cause streams affected by the modified file to be stopped and started to allow them to pick up any changes
    • Changed MPEG-DASH so that we exclude the MPD.Location tag from DASH manifests when in Origin HTTP mode
    • Created HTTPByteWriter class which is now used by PushPublishing to push HLS/HDS/DASH to Akamai. HTTPByteWriter uses non-blocked socket channels to better handle connectivity issues with endpoints.
    • Added PushPublishing properties to allow modification of the HTTP connectionTimeout, readTimeout and maxRetries parameters on the sockets created for the PushPub HTTP transactions: pushPublishHTTPConnectionTimeout, pushPublishHTTPReadTimeout, and pushPublishHTTPMaxRetries
    • Improved socket timeout detection for PushPublishing HTTP protocols.
    • Fixed bug in ModuleSecureToken for RTMP where received hash was truncated when it was the only parameter
    • Removed extraneous invalid value warnings in ModuleCoreSecurity when token start time and/or token end time are not specified
    • Fixed the decoding of the additional identification data in the MPEG-TS Registration descriptor
    • Fixed smoothRespondImmediatelyOnReadAheadFragmentNotReady logic so that it returns immediately even if fragment has not been processed (origin/edge timing issue)
    • Fixed PushPublishing cupertino-akamai issue where "{secureToken}" HLS filename variable was appearing in all chunk URLs in all HLS chunklists pushed to Akamai
    • Set the IP address in the RTPSession when the first packet of an MPEG TS stream is received
    • Updated MainConcept HEVC encoder and decoder library to version 3.1
    • Fixed transcoder rate control problem with HEVC encoding
    • Fixed regression where DVR would immediately go into a non-live state when encoder disconnected, instead of waiting for the DVR timeout to occur
    • Fixed bug in ModuleCoreSecurity that prevented FMLE from reconnecting successfully when the received hash contained a '+' character
    • Fixed bug in incoming security and outgoing security models that prevented the use of wildcards in IP addresses
    • Fixed problem where HLS ABR stream with single audio-only stream and WebVTT subtitles failed to play
    • Improved randomize stream name functionality for HTTP streaming to make sure random strings are generated from static randomizer to make sure we generate unique IDs
    • Fixed Akamai PushPublishing HTTP profiles (HLS/HDS/DASH) to ensure alignment of chunk indexes across all ABR stream renditions. Also chunks are now pushed to a new/unique folder on the endpoint after a stream reset occurs
    • Added enforcement of Publish IP White List and Publish IP Black List for RTSP publish connections
