This release introduces the CopyMetadata plugin, and the DiagnosticJson plugin.

Please read the 3.4.0 release notes for very important guidance and upgrade instructions.

New plugins

  • The CopyMetadata plugin, when installed, allows you to copy all metadata from the source image to the destination image with &copymetadata=true.
  • The DiagnosticJson plugin allows for remote debugging of layout and rendering issues by providing the execution plan in json form. Extremely useful for unit testing.

Fixed bugs

  • AzureReader2 now works with 404Plugin. Fixes bug #28.
  • scale=down is now always respected, even when mode=crop is used. Fixes bug #12.
  • File streams returned by the RemoteReader plugin are now always seekable. Fixes bug #26.
  • For performance, the Watermark plugin will prefetch overlays prior to the actual render stage. This will prevent I/O blocking during rendering phases where high RAM consumption is required. Fixes bug #69.

New features in existing plugins

  • Add named connection string support to AzureReader2. Fixes bug #40
  • Watermark plugin now offers a 'defaultImageQuery' Web.config setting that can be used to simplify common overlay queries like scache=true. Fixes #21.

API warnings

  • protected methods ImageBuilder.buildToStream and ImageBuilder.buildToBitmap methods are obsolete and will be removed in V4. There are no known usages of these methods outside the core.

No known remaining bugs
