This article describes the changes to Pimberly which have been deployed during September 2020.
New Features & Improvements
Improve clarity and colour reproduction of resized images (PIM-3304)
Improvements to the image processing parameters used when resizing images. Colour-reproduction and sharpness are now more consistent with the full-sized original.
Add support for DSA keys when connecting to SFTP servers (PIM-3312)
Feeds and channels which make SFTP connections are now able to connect to servers which use DSA keys instead of RSA keys. This enables support for connection to Akamai DataStorage over SFTP.
NB: When the host uses a DSA key, the connection test which occurs when changing FTP connection details will be unsuccessful. This is expected behaviour. Click OK to save the connection regardless; when the feed or channel is run by the task servers the connection will work as expected.
Increased upload throughput of converted assets when transferred to FTP and S3 destinations (PIM-3280)
By improving the batching of files which are queued for upload to FTP and S3 destinations, the overall throughput of the upload process is improved. Upload times will now be more dependent on the bandwidth available on the destination server.
API returns 502 error when replacing an attribute on a product by name (PIM-3294)
Fix for a 502 error which would occur when replacing an attribute on a product by name, using the
Cannot replace asset which has more than one version (PIM-3292)
Fix for a console error that would occur when replacing an asset in the DAM that already had a previous version.
Ensure channels output the latest version of an asset when resizing or converting (PIM-3297)
Fix for an issue whereby a channel would not use the latest version of an asset when performing a convert or resize operation.
Category metadata export (PIM-3259)
Fix for an issue whereby exporting category metadata would incorrectly output an empty string.
Division operator in expressions (PIM-3311)
Fix for an issue which meant expressions using the division operator would not be evaluated.
Product "Date Updated" property not updated when assets added to media sets by an auto-populate filter (PIM-3265)
FIx for an issue whereby a product's "date updated" property would not be changed when an asset was added to a media set on a product by an auto-populate filter.
