New Features in Deadline (Released March 5, 2015)


This is the third patch release for Deadline 7.0. It fixes a critical side-effect in the feature that allows you to pick an alternate folder for job auxiliary files in the Job Settings in the Repository Options. Without this update, Deadline can delete any existing subfolders in the chosen folder if their name doesn’t match an ID of a job that is still in the queue. This isn’t a problem if you choose an empty folder (which is recommended), but if you choose a folder with existing subfolders, those subfolders will get deleted.

This update ensures that only subfolders with names that represent a valid job ID can be deleted by Deadline.

See the Deadline User Manual for the full release notes.

Note that a 7.0 license is still required to run this version. If you have a license for Deadline 6.2 or earlier, you will need an updated license. In addition, the version of Draft that ships with Deadline 7 needs a new 1.2 license. If you have a license for Draft 1.1 or earlier, you will need an updated license.

If you are still using Deadline 6, this update has also been backported to Deadline
