Warpwire Update on Wednesday, April 8, 2015

An update to Warpwire is scheduled for our Wednesday, 4/8 maintenance window (6:00AM to 8:00AM). This update includes the following improvements and bug fixes:

  • Audio file support
  • Anyone with access to a Media Library will be able to add media to that Media Library (available to everyone by default, including students). Additionally, admins will have the ability to turn this functionality off (and on) for a particular Media Library — to prevent non-admins from contributing.
  • Better upload handling
    • Provides visual feedback to users once their uploads have been transferred to the server regarding the verification and processing steps
    • Better reporting when a user upload files of unsupported file type
    • Better recovery when using multiple uploads that allows for process to continue when one or more files fail to upload successfully
    • Better detection of lack of network connectivity and updates to the user messaging
    • Backend updates that prevents a HTTP error code 499 from being sent during very large uploads
    • Backend updates that spawns external jobs from the initial upload to prevent timeout issues from occurring during slow network/disk access conditions
  • Minor bug fixes/interface updates
    • Updates to improve the interface consistency across the site in Firefox
    • Fixed bug where authentication of API users was sometimes being denied
    • Removed the word “valid” from the sharing settings
    • Ensures that all reports use the same timezone (currently as defined by the server) to avoid inconsistent date ranges in reports
    • Resolved a permission check that prevented items from being removed from My Media
