Deckhand® Pro – 3.12.13-6318

March 17th, 2023
Requires iPadOS 15 or later

This release addresses the following:

Fixed Issues:

  1. Improved Performance in Handling Large Event Numbers: Significant optimisations to address a previous issue. When a large number of events were affected by code, such as when opening and closing sessions, Deckhand could become overwhelmed. This would often result in the “Working…” spinner appearing onscreen for extended periods while internal processes occurred. We have implemented enhancements to ensure Deckhand Pro can handle such situations more elegantly. The overall performance of workflow activity involving a large number of events has been noticeably improved. Users can expect a smoother and more efficient experience, with reduced waiting times during intensive processes.
  2. Respecting Entitlement Expiration Dates: Previously, entitlements would ignore expiration dates, even if they were specified on the server. This resulted in entitlements remaining active beyond their intended expiration, causing confusion and potential misuse. We have implemented changes to ensure that entitlement expiration dates are now properly respected. When an entitlement reaches its specified expiration date, it will automatically disappear from the user’s account, reflecting its expired status accurately. This fix provides users with more accurate and up-to-date information regarding their entitlements.
  3. Resolved “Working…” Spinner Lockup on PIN Popup: Previously, when a PIN popup appeared, there were instances where the “Working…” spinner would erroneously appear and lock up Deckhand, preventing further interaction with the application. With this release, we have addressed this issue and resolved the problem. Users will no longer experience the “Working…” spinner locking up Deckhand when encountering a PIN popup. The application will now respond as expected, allowing users to seamlessly proceed with their desired actions.
  4. Random, Serious Crashes: We have resolved an issue that was causing random and serious crashes in various Deckhand workflows. These crashes were particularly prevalent in workflows that shared a common problem area. Our development team has conducted a thorough investigation and implemented the necessary fixes to address this issue.
