  When restoring a backup set spawning multiple MiniModules
  (in a RTR3010, requires SW-license RSL_BR20 or RSL_BR30), then
  a certain percentage of items would always end up in a
  "restore failed on timeout" state.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 3.4.3 (build 172, 07.Jun.2006)

COMPATIBLE with client software 3.4.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).
recommended client software: 3.4.3 or above.

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 Fixes

- fixed bug: Under very rare circumstances it could happen, that a
  device is not shown in the RCP's list of devices although it has
  correctly been detected (as can be seen in the logfiles). This was a
  bug in the presentation logic. Fixed now.

------------------------------------------------
RCT5030 Fixes

- removing a Device immediatley after it had just been detected
  by the system could lead to a situation where the device was never
  removed from the system. This has been fixed now.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 3.4.1 (build 170, 29.May.2006)

COMPATIBLE with client software 3.4.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCT5030 FEATURES

- Improved server side support for PTG3610
  The client version (RCP5000/PC-GUI) 3.4.1 makes use of these improvements
  which results in a much more reliable remote control of the
  PTG3610 (Testor)

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 FEATURES

- Improvements to the Web-Interface:
  - changes to several parameters of the network configuration (page
    "System Settings") can be applied at once
  - server(s) can be explicitly restarted (page "System Settings")

- Improved feedback in local RCP display if connection to a configured
  server could not be established.

- Significantly reduce network traffic and server CPU load when
  logging into a remote server (RCT5030). This improvement is only
  available when client and server are both using version 3.4.1 (or
  above).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 Fixes

- fixed bug #691: applying a change to the Panel Connections on the
  Web-Interface required the repeated specification of the server
  password. Changed to require the password only once.

- fixed bug #734: modifying the Panel Connections from the Web-Interface
  required a restart of panel server to become effective.

- fixed bug #744: Display of GAIN values off by 0.5 dB for devices
  DAA3320/DAA5320.

- fixed bug: remove bogus entry "local COM ports" from list of
  available server connections in RCP frontpanel menu.

- fixed bug #754: DVD5420: Master LED in GUI sometimes not correct.
  The Master LED color of a DVD5420 in the GUI/RCP5000 is sometimes
  not correct (according to master LED on the module)

- fixed connection bug: when a server was restarted (e.g. because it
  was being re-configured) while a client was just logging in, the
  client (here: RCP5000) would appear to be locked for a long time
  (depending on number of devices at that server), before resuming
  normal operation. Now the client returns to the "disconnected" state
  within very short time, as expected.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 3.4.0 (build 167, 20.Apr.2006)

COMPATIBLE with client software 3.3.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCT5030 Fixes

- fixed bug: in very large systems (many controllers and devices),
  accessing a large number of parameters (in different devices) at the
  same time can set the server into a high-traffic mode, not
  responding to any outside message anymore. This could lead the
  watchdog into restarting the server.

===============================================================

  when the unit was running in "bypass mode".

- fixed bug #658: "SDI input missing" event available for just one channel
  The Events-Tab in the GUI of the CAD3002 showed only events for one
  of the two channels.

- fixed bug #662: "PMX3312/3313 does not show events of AudioADC"
  Input-lost Events from Audio-ADC combo are not shown in GUI of
  PMX3312 / PMX3313

- fixed bug #665: "RCP5000: low performance with several modules"
  Several modules (mainly CADxxxx) take a long time to appear in
  the RCP5000 local display. Optimized some UI-algorithms to fix this.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.8.4 (build 154, 02.Dec.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.8.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #672: Device server: intermittent restarts on PAD5212.
  Eliminated an incompatibility between the PAD5212 (Audio Delay Line)
  and the Device server (RCT5030 / RCP5000) that would lead to an
  intermittend restart of the server process. This did lead to a
  cyclic re-login of connected clients.

- fixed bug #673: fixed problem in RCP5000 XML-configuration framework
  that would lead to restarts of the RCP5000 panel server on certain
  constructs.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.8.3 (build 153, 29.Nov.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.8.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 FEATURES

- added control of Audio Routing parameters for PVD5005 / PVD5010.  To
  simplify the configuration of the complex crossbars through the RCP
  user interface, these controls let the user connect input and output
  points of the internal crossbar as single operations. (I.e. the actual
  crossbar connection points are not directly accessible from the RCP)

- added boolean configuration parameter RCP_NAVIGATION_STAY_IN_DEVICE
  (default value: FALSE). It can be modified through the RCP5000's
  Web-Interface.
  By setting it to TRUE, the RCP pushbuttons can be used to navigate
  within multiple devices of the same type rather than between
  devices. E.g., in a system with several PVD5010, different parameter
  groups can be assigned to different buttons (by manually navigating
  to the parameters and then assigning the buttons). When later
  navigating to a different device of the same type, pushing a button
  doesn't navigate back to the device the button has been assigned to,
  but just jumps to the assigned parameter within the current device.

------------------------------------------------
RCT5030 FEATURES

- added boolean configuration parameter SNMP_TRAP_FORCE_LEVEL_CLEARED
  (default: TRUE). It can be modified through the RCT5030's
  Web-Interface.
  Setting this value to TRUE (the default) will force the 'eventLevel'
  (OID 14755.4.3.2) to value '6' ('cleared') if the event is cleared,
  i.e. if 'eventOn' (OID 14755.4.3.4) is '0'.  Otherwise (FALSE), the
  'eventLevel' will reflect the level of the original event
  (e.g. 'error'), even if the trap is announcing the event as cleared
  (not active anymore).",

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #600: Modifying the IP settings of the RCT5030/RCP5000 requires
  a restart of the embedded software applications, so that the CORBA-ORB
  can adapt to the new network parameters. This is done automatically now.

- fixed bug #566: Setting string-type variables to empty string "" on
  the WEB-Interface (page "Server Configuration") did not work
  correctly.

- fixed bug #567: Setting configuration variable
  RCP_DISPLAY_SEPARATOR_CHAR to the empty string "" would display
  strange (undefined) characters in the separation column in the RCP
  display.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.8.2 (build 152, 07.Nov.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.8.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #645 (RCT5030): SNMPTraps sent under wrong OID
  The SNMP-MIB (LYNX-TRAPS-MIB.txt) declares the OID for Device-Traps
  as 1.3.6.1.4.1.14755.3.1. However, traps were sent with the
  OID 1.3.6.1.4.14755.3.2.0. This inconsitency has been fixed.
  (The MIB remains unchanged, the Traps are now sent correctly)

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.8.1 (build 151, 25.Oct.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.8.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #651: Single parameter in UI not updated.
  In few UIs (depending on board type) one single parameter might
  not be updated correctly.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.8.0 (build 150, 24.Oct.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.8.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 FEATURES

- Added User Interface for PTG5010
  (SDI Test Signal Generator)

- Added User Interface for PVD5000
  (same as PVD5000G FRamesynchronnizer, without GPI input)

- Added User Interface for CMX5110
  (Deembedder with Analog Video and Analog Audio Output)

- Added User Interface for PMX5212/PMX5214 (BS509500)
  (new AES Embedders, based on PCB BS509500)

- Added User Interface for DVD5620
  (Multi-Format HD/SD SDI Distribution Amplifier)

- Added User Interface for SVD5012
  (SDI Change-Over Switch)

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- increased server stability by major software framework improvements.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.7.1 (build 149, 16.Sept.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.7.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #602: sync source of CAD5121/CAD5122 is identical for both
  channels. The sync source of CAD5121/CAD5122 (intern/extern/off) is
  always identical for channels 1 and 2. The client display (PC-GUI /
  RCP5000) was not guaranteed to be updated accordingly.

- fixed bug #638: Presence of SW-Licenses not recognized correctly
  The presence of a software license was not always correctly recognized
  in the RCT5030. This affected the SNMPTraps and LYNXRemoteControl
  options.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.8 (build 146, 02.Aug.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 Fixes

- A device that had never been locked before could be displayed
  as "locked", while the lock was in fact not active. Workaround
  was to lock/unlock the device once.

- fix a couple of display issues with user-defined panel-configurations

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.7 (build 145, 01.Aug.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 FEATURES

- The current host's IP address is shown in the HOME-display
  (top right corner)

- Current Server Connection is saved persistently. At application
  startup, the last current server connection is selected again.

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 Fixes

- fixed bug #613: navigating a large (flat) list of devices could show
  incorrect total number of devices. Navigation of such a list could
  break in th middle (jump back to head).

- fixed bug #618: Switching the LOCATE function of a device on/off
  very quickly (by turning the associated digi-pot very quickly),
  could leave the panel non-responsive for a while.

- fixed bug #619: locking a device in one RCP5000 (device-parameter
  LOCK) was not properly propagated into other (passive) RCP5000s that
  are connected to the same device.

- fixed bug: executing commands from XML user-configuration did not
  work correctly under certain conditions.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.6 (build 144, 21.July.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
RCP5000 Fixes

- allow to control multiple devices from one RCP5000 menu page.

- make sure the RCP5000 connects to a rack without complaining
  about "no option RCP"

------------------------------------------------
NOTE: On RCT5030 platforms with build label XBOARD_130 or older, this
      package can only be installed over RELEASE 2.6.4.
   -> If you are using a platform build XBOARD_130 or older, you
      will have to install RELEASE 2.6.4 before installing this package.
   -> You can find the platform build label on the "System settings"
      page on the Web-Interface of your RCT5030.
      (see RCT5030 manual, section "Controller Configuration")

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.4 (build 142, 14.July.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- removed unnecessary restart of device server after a current client
  is not reachable anymore. The appropriate auto-cleanup (which had
  been introduced in RELEASE 2.6.2, see below) was deciding on a very
  fundamental cleanup strategy in certain situations that turned out
  not to be necessary.

------------------------------------------------
NOTE: Installing this package on a RCT5030 platform with build
      label XBOARD_130 or older will ugrade the platform with
      extension #1. This is a required extension for all future
      software packages for such older platforms.
   -> If you are using a platform build XBOARD_130 or older, you
      will have to install this package before installing any newer
      package.
   -> You can find the platform build label on the "System settings"
      page on the Web-Interface of your RCT5030.
      (see RCT5030 manual, section "Controller Configuration")

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.3 (build 140, 24.June.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fixed bug #604: incorrect read of data from the PAD5212 could lead
  to wrong display values on the client (c3_local / rcp).

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.2 (build 138, 21.June.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- Fixed general connection issue: after a client had disconnected,
  some references to that client would still be held in parts of the
  running server. Next time when certain values (that these clients
  had been interested in) are changed, these references had to be
  removed before the new info could be propagated to the current
  clients. This did result in noticable delays in certain situations
  (such as initial login of a client, speed of update in case of
  multiple clients).

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.6.1 (build 137, 09.June.2005)

COMPATIBLE with client software 2.6.0 and above (c3_local / RCP).

- Supply some additional (optional) status information to the various
  SW-clients of the 2.6.0 release (RCP5000, RCPSimulation and c3_local).

- Enabling a SoftwareOption in the RCT5030 from a client
  (e.g. c3_local) will automatically be propagated to other
  clients. In previous versions of the RCT5030 software, such other
  clients had to disconnect/reconnect in order to become aware of the
  mofified status of the SoftwareOption.

- General rework of major parts of the software architecture,
  resulting in a significant increase in overall stability and
  performance.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #590: "GUI CAD5320: left/right indication crossed"
  The indication of input channel status was crossed between left and
  right channel on the GUI of the CAD5320. This server version is
  required for the Event- and general Status information to appear
  correct in the client UI.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.5.3 (build 132, 17.May.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.5.0 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug: Prevent from intermittend situations where (after a logout)
  the re-login into the server from same client was refused.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.5.2 (build 131, 25.Apr.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.5.0 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #577: "update to GUI not always complete"
  A changed register value in a device (by local adjustment on board
  or by GUI/RCP5000) was sometimes not propagated to all connected
  clients (RCP5000, other GUIs). This problem is not existent in
  releases prior to 2.5.1

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.5.1 (build 130, 14.Apr.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.5.0 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug: the status text of the CDX5024 was sometimes not
  100% accurate in the GUI. This status text is generated in
  the server, hence this fix.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.9 (build 127, 21.Mar.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #555: "c3-framework shutdown on CAD3110"
  Some versions of the CAD3110 shutdown the RCT5030. Fixed by
  eliminating a long-hidden bug in the framework.
  (NOTE: this bug affects an RCT5030, when connected to a
  CAD3110 with version < 124 in a Series3000 Rack)

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.8 (build 124, 02.Mar.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #551: "RCT5030 takes a long time to login if a previous client died"
  When a client (c3_local) logs into the RCT5030 and then does not properly
  logout, the next attempt to login to the RCT5030 will take a long time (~ 30 sec.)

- fix bug #552: "RCT5030 WebIF: large logfile.txt leads to timeout on logfile page"
  If one of the logfiles is very large (this has been observed with a
  ~8 MB file), then the complete Logfile-page is not given out by the
  Webserver anymore. Instead, this message sent to the HTTP-client:
     Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in
     /usr/local/lynx/c3_server/2.2.6/web/code/ClassC3Logfiles.php on line 28

- fix bug #554: "RCT5030 instable under heavy load."
  under very heavy load, the RCT5030 seems to restart itself from time
  to time. A c3_local GUI is logged out spontaneously, and a re-login
  takes long time to complete.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.7 (build 122, 24.Feb.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #541: "initial (color/text) status of some devices wrong"
  The initial status of about 1% of devices in the GUI is not correct (text/color
  is OK/green instead of the appropriate value). Pressing F5 in the devices GUI
  brings the status up to correct content. This is a statistical error, not
  100% reproducible per device.

- fix bug #545: "c3_server does not allow to login anymore"
  The c3_server application (inside RCT5030) can get into a state where no more
  logins from a client (c3_local) are possible. The only way out of this situation
  is to restart the c3_server, either by power-cycling the RCT5030 or by
  restarting the app through the web-interface.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.6 (build 121, 14.Feb.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #541: " initial (color/text) status of some devices wrong"
  The initial status of about 1% of devices in the GUI is not correct (text/color
  is OK/green instead of the appropriate value). Pressing F5 in the devices GUI
  brings the status up to correct content. This is a statistical error, not
  100% reproducible per device.

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.5 (build 120, 10.Feb.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
New Features

This is a feature release, adding support for the generic
status reporting model. This will make it possible, that
for future releases of individual device types, the c3_server
does not necessarily have to be updated anymore.

It is declared as bugfix-release 2.2.5 anyways (should have been 2.3.0),
so that the same c3_local GUI version can be connected as before.
(no need to upgrade c3_local for this release)

A new Web-Interface allows for configuration of all relevant parameters
of the network-interface (gateway, netmask, broadcast addr.)

===============================================================
LYNX Device Controller - RELEASE 2.2.4 (build 119, 10.Feb.2005)

COMPATIBLE with c3_local 2.2.3 and above.

------------------------------------------------
Fixes

- fix bug #538: "RCT5030 version 2.2.3 does not run with RCT5010"
  c3_server version 2.2.3 cannot be used with RCT5010.
