What's New In Rumpus 8.0
Rebuilt Web File Manager
The Rumpus Web File Manager (WFM) has been rebuilt from the ground up to be easier to use, more flexible, more efficient and include new features. Almost every element of the Web interface is now customizable right from within the Rumpus application, for example:
• File and folder menus are now completely customizable, and the same menus are displayed in both standard and thumbnail directory listing views.
• Setup wizards allow administrators to quickly define color pallets and basic options, and then individually fine tune the display of dozens of different elements.
• Action buttons can be displayed in different styles, with more fine tuning controls, and in different positions within the interface.
• Progress indicators have been simplified and improved, and can now be displayed for file downloads as well as uploads.
• The data required to deliver Web interface pages is up to 50% less than in past versions, while being presented in a more modern, cleaner style.
• For Drop Ship users, the new Web interface includes a drop ship history, allowing senders to view past shipments and easily copy/paste previous URLs for resending.
• Users can now move files between folders, without transferring them to and from the server.
• Video files can be displayed in a branded display interface which includes a “Download Now” option for permanent retrieval of the file.
Rumpus now supports SFTP clients, in addition to HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and WebDAV. User accounts and restrictions are applied just as they are in any other protocol. Just turn on SFTP service in Rumpus (a 10 second task) and your clients can use any standard SFTP client to transfer and manage files.
New Event Notices
New Event Notice types can save text or XML files when users upload files. Handy for use along with Upload Center forms, this makes it easy to prompt users for information about uploaded files and record meta-data about uploaded files.
Auto-Complete Form Fields
Administrators can now create lists, which can be used in form text fields as prompts for users during data entry. For example, you might create a list of all the e-mail addresses of people in your company, and assign it as an auto-complete list for an "e-mail" Upload Center field. Auto-complete lists can also be applied to File Request and Drop Ship mail fields, making it easier for local users to address messages sent by Rumpus.
• Corrected the "Log In Again" link on the Logout page.
• Corrected a problem with the "Create New Folder" function in the "Define Users" Web administration interface.
• User account names and passwords are now correctly limited to 31 characters in the Web admin interface.
• Improved compatibility with iSkysoft Web browser plug-ins.
• Rumpus now correctly clears quick image preview and meta-data files when files are deleted or replaced.
• When a drop ship recipient accesses a drop ship URL that is password protected, and the user supplies an incorrect password, the page now reloads to prompt the user for the password again.
• Corrected a "busy wait" (unnecessary CPU utilization) problem in SFTP service.
• The maintenance update checker now links to the Maxum Downloads page rather than trying to merely update the daemon (or failing to connect to the updates server).
• Corrected an MSIE 6/7 display bug that caused boxes to display half-off screen during drop ship file pickups.
• If a "Logout URL" is specified (on the Web Settings window, Options tab), and a drop ship recipient picks up a file via the "Download Page" option, Rumpus will now display the "Complete" message, wait 5 seconds, and then redirect to the Logout URL supplied.
• The Drop Box function now works correctly (with proper progress indicators) within a frameset served from another page.
• The SFTP service now blocks clients denied access in the "Blocked Clients" list, and tracks failed login attempts in the Hack Attempt Recognition function.
• Clients using Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 8 or before can now reliably pick up drop shipped files.
• Added the "Drop Ship Pickup URL Prefix" option, allowing drop shipment URLs to be manually specified via server administration.
• The "Drop Ship Selected Files" multi-action option is now available for users with drop ship capability in folders where a Folder Set disallows file uploads.
• Corrected a link problem on the "pre-login" message WFM page.
• Corrected a bug deleting Folder Set entries that could cause the Rumpus control application to crash.
• When files are modified via WebDAV, FTP, FTPS or SFTP, WFM thumbnail images are now updated accordingly.
• Thumbnails are now correctly displayed for files with apostrophes and other special characters in the name.
• Welcome messages displayed to users who can only upload files are now presented and can be dismissed correctly.
• A bug that caused the cancel button to do nothing in drop ship dialogs for users who do not have file upload permission has been corrected.
• Rumpus now correctly handles HTTP byte-range requests that do not specify an end to the range.(Corrects a problem with Google Chrome streaming video files.)
• The privileged helper tool has been rewritten to resolve inconsistent installation issues on OS X 10.10 Yosemite Macs.
• Corrected Web user admin behaviors for admin accounts with "Allow User To Move…" option enabled.
• A problem with generating zip archives for multi-file downloads under Yosemite has been corrected, and a problem that caused an unnecessary delay when downloading multiple files has also been resolved.
• Fixed a problem with OS X 10.10 Yosemite displaying test images when using the Thumbnail Generation test.
• Modernized empty folder check to more reliably delete folders that contain invisible files.
• In control application, removed display of thousands separators in numeric settings fields.
• Corrected privileges issue in control app that could cause the Rumpus daemon to fail to start or stop as needed, among other privilege failures.
