Version 1.7

The latest releases for our AxisTV Signage Suite applications include upgrades to installation requirements, improved widgets, and a variety of workflow enhancements and fixes to make content management easier and more efficient.

Changes to AxisTV Signage Suite Installation Requirements (Manage, Design, and Engage)
The Microsoft .NET Framework prerequisite has been changed from v.4.5.2 or higher to v.4.7.2 or higher. All of the Signage Suite software has been migrated to the latest edition of the .NET Framework, version. The bootstrap setup now tests for the presence of .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher and provides a link to run the .NET Framework 4.7.2 installer if it is missing.

AxisTV Manage

Change to Installation Requirement
The installation prerequisites for AxisTV Manage have been updated to remove the required Standalone Feature SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support. This feature is not considered secure and is not recommended by Microsoft. AxisTV Manage doesn’t require this feature to function.

Default Category for Artwork, Messages, and Layouts
Some users will not have access to their organization’s “Shared” category. “Personal” is now the default category when the user doesn’t have access to their organization’s “Shared” cat-egory. This default applies to Artwork, Messages and Layouts.

Use of Signage Suite reserved names has been limited
The web user interface no longer allows users to use reserved names for categories or named items, such as messages and layouts. This enforcement was added to prevent files and directories appearing in the structure to avoid technical support issues.
