Enhancements, bug fixes, and known issues in Scene7 Viewers 4.9.2
Viewer upgrades are backwards compatible and therefore, no changes are necessary to your existing web code. However, it is recommended that you test the new viewers on our staging environment. Contact Technical Support for instructions on how to access the staging server so you can test your viewers. After this is done, you can check your website to test the upgrades.
The following bugs are now fixed:
All Scene7 viewers
!IMPORTANTto the CSS declaration.
Navigating to another HTML page and then returning occasionally causes the viewer to reset back to the first page.
ImageMapEffect rollover modifier to
1 to invoke infopanels.
Frametransition set to
fade is not supported.
Page layout occasionally displays incorrectly after rotating the iOS device. Zoom into page corrects layout.
Mixed Media viewer
serverurlmodifier should have an absolute URL.
Flash AS3-all viewers
Double encode the # character in asset names.
Server Support fails to load SWF animations with embedded videos.
Server Support fails to load viewer skins if compiled for Flash Player 6. Workaround is to compile for Flash Player 7.
Currently the Flash Viewers support SWFs complied for Flash 7 only.
Because of an issue with Java v.1.5.0_06 the server component is not supported with that version of Java. http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6274990.
For a skin custom URL parameter, the parameter in the Skin URL must be URL encoded.
Image Sets with extended ASCII characters in the name must be URL encoded twice when sent to the viewer or the FVCTX request fails because the Flash player decodes the name before passing it to the viewer code.
The changes to the
S7Config.setFlashParam() allow for more than one parameter/value to be passed with this
syntax S7Config.setFlashParam(<viewer ID>, <parameter name>, <parameter value> [, <parameter name>, <parameter value>]), but in that case the first parameter to be passed must be the “image” parameter followed by the “currentFrame” parameter (if required), and then any other parameters.
When using the
InitialFrame, or in the case of a RenderSet that has two or more swatches associated with an image - when the swatch combination referencing the omitted frame is selected.
Crop is not supported in conjunction with zoom targets or swatches in either the
rgn argument is not supported for the flash viewers for image modifier.
A new IE security patch requires the user to activate Flash and other ActiveX applications in IE. Please see the Microsoft site for information about workarounds.
Security issues prevent the viewer from reading from a different server on the same domain unless both URLs are fully qualified domain names or the “cross domain policy” is specifically set to allow access from that server.
With Flash 7’s new security features, if the viewers attempt to read from a different server on the same domain from where the viewers are located (that is, they are redirected by the paths in the
searchEngineUrl, or the
serverUrl parameters) a security alert notifies the user of this fact and asks if you want to allow this, unless the “cross domain policy” is set to allow access from that server.
For more information on how to set up a “cross domain policy” see the following article: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14213.html.
