Has anyone else had troubles with upgrading to 5.1.10.0?

The only changes that seemed needed are the following:

- iu.activeXControlVersion = "5,0,15,0";

+ iu.activeXControlVersion = "5,1,10,0";

- iu.javaAppletVersion = "5.0.15.0";

+ iu.javaAppletVersion = "5.1.10.0";

Update 'ImageUploader5.cab', 'ImageUploader5.jar' and 'iuembed.js' to the newer versions.

ActiveX:

After after the update every new instance of the Thumbnail control ask's if it should be installed. After chose to always trust Aurigma to stop the dialogs from diplaying on every image add the new version crashes IE if more than 5 or 6 instances of the Thumbnail control are created.

Java:

Seems to randomly hang up on large image upload sets.

Have a missed something in the upgrading process or has anyone else run into similar issues?

Thank you

Sam

Hello,

This behaviour is caused by memory limitation of Java machine. Java has about 64mb of memory that can be allocated by applets. If you handle large amout of images or upload big thumbnails, it can cause “out of memory”. When this problem occures Image Uploader uploads icon instead of thumbnail. You can decrease the probability of this issue by using FilesPerPackageCount = 1, upload thumbnails of smaller size (if possible) or upload original files instead.

We just made some modifications in thumbnail generation module, and this problem occures more often.

The Image Uploader team is working on version 5.5 now. We refactored some portions of the product, some parts are rewritten from scratch. This update will consume less memory, and will be faster. It will allow us to solve this issue.

The release will be available by the end of August.

Sincerely yours,

Dmitry Sevostyanov

Thank you for the reply Dmitry,

I am already using FilesPerPackageCount = 1 so I would guess it's not an out of memory issue. The reason for the update to 5.1.10.0 is due to the upcoming killbit issue. Would you recommend rolling back to an older version of the uploader until 5.5 comes out as the uploader in it's current state does not seem to be very stable?

Hello,

If the previous version of the Java applet was okay for you, you can roll back to that one. But, please, be sure that you roll back Java version only. ActiveX version installed on your site should be 5.1.

Sincerely yours,

Dmitry Sevostyanov
