    Changes (since 4.1.1 release)

    • Added Application/DVR property "dvrStreamOnlyLiveStreams" (Boolean, default=false), that controls if a client can connect to only an actively recording DVR stream (true) or to either a recording or pre-recorded DVR (false)
    • Fixed SwaggerParameterGenerator to find actions in super classes so Swagger documentation for actions is correct for SMILFileAppAction, StreamFileAppAction, and SDPFileAppAction
    • Added Query Parameter documentation for SMILFile, SDPFile, StreamFile, SMILFileApp, SDPFileApp, and StreamFileApp {action} APIs
    • Updated server exit code handling to provide better feedback through Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Renamed getMPEGDashCConnectionCount to getMPEGDashConnectionCount to remove the extra 'C'
    • Fixed REST API documentation for POST method on the list level APIs, for example, ApplicationsConfig, StreamFilesConfig, and so on
    • Fixed bug with Apple HLS (cupertino) streaming by properly removing query string in URL before extracting the Wowza session ID
    • Fixed potential NPE when trimming the DVR playlist request. This occurred in HTTP Origin mode when chunks were requested from latent players immediately after Wowza Streaming Engine was restarted
    • Fixed ConcurrentModificationException in Push Publishing, where pushing 2 streams through Wowza Streaming Engine and then cancelling them both triggers the exception
    • Added new "wowza-streaming-cloud" profile in Push Publishing to allow pushing of streams to a Wowza Streaming Cloud-based Wowza Streaming Engine instance
    • Fixed bug in LiveStreamRecordMananger notifyRecordFactory that checked the wrong variable for instanceOf IStreamRecorder, allowing a non-IStreamRecorder object to be returned
    • Fixed bug in LiveStreamRecorderBase that used != to compare strings instead of using the equals string function and not-ing the return value
    • Included Push Publishing output in the bytes out totals stored in the statistical databases and hence displayed in the monitoring charts
    • Fixed logging issue with HTTP streaming where file information was not logged properly in all cases when playing back a single stream
    • Fixed bug in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager where Internet Explorer 11 would stop responding while trying to access hidden variables on the Incoming Publishers Teradek page
    • Fixed perpetual loading gear when trying to view real-time Wowza Streaming Engine Manager error logs when the log had a size of 0
    • Fixed bug where the sort order check box was not being displayed when switching back from real-time to historical view on the Logs page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Fixed REST API documentation to properly show the serverName property for actions APIs
    • Fixed REST API documentation to properly show the vhostName and appName properties for application advanced properties APIs
    • Fixed REST API documentation for action endpoints that erroneously indicated support for the POST method
    • Removed REST API documentation for outgoingstreams endpoint because it is not currently supported
    • Added DEBUG icon for debug lines shown on the Logs page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Fixed bug in SecureToken Version 2 that calculated an incorrect hash when used in conjunction with the StreamNameAlias package
    • Fixed MediaListRendition.toSMILString() so that properties are output in the SMIL string
    • Added support for RTMPT TCP connections to handle pipelined requests for crossdomain.xml
    • Fixed issue with H.264 and H.265 SEI packet parsing when using Wowza Transcoder (did not account for zero-length NAL units)
    • Fixed problem with Transcoder NGRP creation if audio is set to PassThru and incoming stream is video only. Now the NGRP is properly created with video only rendition of the stream
    • Updated references to the RESTLET libraries (from 2.1.6 to 2.2.2) in the startup scripts when a license check fails and the media server goes into the update license key mode
    • Included linux startup.sh in updates because of the change to RESTLET 2.2.2
    • Updated the linux service script to use the new RESTLET 2.2.2 libraries
    • Added new function for SetCodecConfig for H264, H265, and AAC to set the codec config bytes without decoding them
    • Fixed bug in SecureToken by removing a line break at 77th character for base64-encoded hash parameters longer than 76 characters. This caused the received hash and calculated hash to not match
    • Changed the default behavior for cupertino streaming when requesting a playlist for stream that doesn't exist to return 404 as an HTTP return code
    • Added new boolean property "cupertinoReturnEmptyPlaylistOnStreamNotFound" that when added to an application's HTTP Streamer properties, reverts the behavior to the old way (empty playlist)
    • Added new integer property "cupertinoHttpStreamNotFoundReturnCode" that when added to an application's HTTP Streamer properties, allows for a custom return code if a stream is not found (404 is the default)
    • Added IApplicationInstance API call isLive() which returns true if the stream type for the application instance is a live stream type
    • Fixed HTTP streaming adapter so that if an application uses a live stream type and the packetizer is turned off for a given protocol, the request is treated like a live stream and 404 is returned properly
    • Added WARN log statement to Adobe HDS (sanjose) streaming when request is made for live stream that does not exist
    • Fixed the Application and Machine stats data by forcing the data to be UTC when traveling across the REST API
    • Fixed bug in UserConfig where adding a new user failed with error code 409 even though new user did not exist, when the Server.xml RESTInterface authentication was set to none
    • Optimized the file reader code so that it tracks the length of the file during read operations more efficiently
    • Optimized the stream file and Application.xml when creating a new stream file from the the Incoming Publishers > JVC page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Added Sony to Incoming Publishers page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
