Update Center Toolkit 2.3 Update 1 Release

The Update Center project team is pleased to announce the release of version 2.3 Update 1 of the toolkit.  Highlights of key issues addressed in this release include:

  • Desktop Notifier
    • Always uses the latest available version of the toolkit when multiple images are present.
    • Continues to check for updates even when invalid images and repository access errors are encountered.
  • Compatibility
    • Update Tool GUI and Desktop Notifier are better prepared to handle incompatible images emerging with version 2.4 of the toolkit.
  • Java Bootstrap
    • No longer causes out of date catalog cache requiring "pkg refresh" as a workaround.
    • No longer overwrites existing publisher UUIDs.
    • Initialization property optin.usage.reporting has been retired.
  • pkg(5) Java API
    • Enables setting publisher UUID even when no UUID exists in the publisher configuration.
    • Automatically sets publisher UUID when not already set.
  • Other
    • makeimage developer tool works properly with file URLs on Mac OS X.
    • Various localization gaps addressed.

Developers can obtain the release on the download page and review the detailed list of changes in the release notes.
