Alfserver 12.0 Release Notes

New Features and Enhancements

  • Netrender requests are now routed through Alfserver's site-customizable AlfEnvConfig procedure in alfserver.ini. This handler script allows renderfarm servers to select different installed versions of PRMan, and make environment variable and setuid changes, on a per-request basis. The keyword specified with netrender -R keyword is now treated just like Alfred's built-in RemoteCmd -envkey keyword, which means that a consistent set of environment and setuid rules can be applied to all processes launched by Alfserver. Any existing (deprecated) Alfserver -rmap mappings are still applied, followed by AlfEnvConfig handling.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • Alfserver shutdown and restart behaviors have been improved.
