Viewer upgrades are backwards compatible. With this release, a viewer change for namespace support was made. As such, all out-of-the-box viewer presets were updated to reflect this change. However, if you created your own custom viewer presets, your viewers may exhibit problems and require updating your CSS based on these known issues:
Video viewer - Play/Pause button does not display Replay state.
Video viewer - Navigation markers do not display.
BasicZoom, Zoom, and Spin viewers - IconEffect does not display or displays SDK default art.
Flyout and Zoom viewers - Swatch scroll buttons do not display for large sets.
It is recommended that you test viewers on Adobe’s staging environment. The following website gives instructions on how you can set up your system to access Adobe’s staging server:
After you have set up your computer to access the staging server, you can check your website to test the upgrade. For customers using out-of-the-box viewers, best practice is for you to test against Adobe’s standard staging server and s7is1-preview-staging.scene7.com.
