8.2.2.1 (Tues May 7, 2019)

Optimization

8.2.2.0 (Wed May 1, 2019)

Optimization

  • Improved sg.share_thumbnail() API endpoint to account for certain use cases.
    Modified behavior of the sg.share_thumbnail() api endpoint to account for use cases where the method is called before a valid thumbnail is rendered by the transcoder (ie: situations where a placeholder image URL would be returned). In such cases, sg.share_thumbnail() will fail instead of returning the placeholder image. Users can work around this with a try/except block that sleeps and retries after a short wait. [SG-10911]
  • Added the “time_logs_sum” as a default field for tasks in Shotgun Create. [SG-11843]
  • Increased the size of page titles. [SG-11704]

  • Fix to display the correct date in the subject line of shared notes published from the Review Notes app. [SG-11413]
  • Fix to display the proper icon in the All Pages menu. [SG-11696]
  • Fix for users to change the priority order for Tasks. [SG-11909]
  • Fixed the publish function on the Review Notes app when a calculated field or read-only field is present on a Note Entity. [SG-10913]
