Lasso 9.3 Release Candidate 2

November 10, 2014

Release Notes

Please read the installation notes that pertain to your system as well as the general notes below.

The builds can be obtained from the following links:

Mac OS X 10.7+
- if you have gatekeeper set to a less permissive mode, right-click on the installer, select open, and confirm you wish to install. Future betas will have updated code signing.
- This release adds support for Apache 2.4 on OS X 10.10. Other OS X releases 10.7+ should have the Apache 2.2 module installed instead. The installer should take care of this for you - please report success and/or failures of this process.
- Please ensure you have the XQuartz X11 package installed before installing Lasso 9.3. You will be prompted to install Java 1.6 if this has not already been done.

CentOS 5.x86_64

CentOS 6.x86_64

Ubuntu 14.04+ 64-bit

To enable a VM for beta testing:

Add the following repo to your apt-get sources
$ sudo nano -w /etc/apt/sources.list
deb beta main

Then update apt-get:
$ sudo apt-get update

Then install the packages:
$ sudo apt-get install lasso-instance-manager
$ sudo apt-get install lasso-java-api lasso-imagemagick

CentOS notes

On CentOS 6 (new install) the required reps can be installed using:

yum install libxslt httpd java-1.6.0-openjdk ImageMagick mysql libicu gc libzip libevent

In testing after install the service did not start immediately, rectified by issuing
sudo service lassoimd start

Use "ps aux | grep lasso” to see if lasso processes are present.

Notes for all systems where a previous beta has been installed:

There is a situation that may arise where Spitfire may consume large amounts of CPU. The solution to this is to attempt to remove all port entries and restart the entire lassoimd process (which should in turn kill and restart the lassospitfire process). If this fails there may be a faulty setting, and the best solution is to uninstall Lasso 9.3 (including removing instances) and reinstalling.

Changes from the previous beta:

  • Some stability issues have been addressed
  • Added timeoutcallback ternary to trait_readBytes->readBytesFully (#7772)
  • Added asInteger and asDecimal null converters (#7615)
  • Fixed [Queue->forEachSpool] spins with zero (#7253)
  • Updated Spitfire to new version omitted from first RC1.
  • Fixed incorrect output for [XML] with extended characters (#7794)
  • Fixed parameters being overwritten by data member defaults (#7882)

As before, please log any issues or inconsistencies in LassoTrac using LUX. 

While this is a "Release Candidate" we advise against installing on production systems. 

Lasso 9.3 is a significant evolution of the Lasso product line, and as such we recommend thorough testing before deploying; LassoSoft cannot assume responsibility for issues arising from installations of beta or release candidate software!

Please note that periodically LassoSoft will go through the notes and may incorporate information from them into the documentation. Any submission here gives LassoSoft a non-exclusive license and will be made available in various formats to the Lasso community.
