FileVista v7.11.0 is released

This release includes the following changes:

  • Added: Azure Blob File System. You can now use an Azure Blob container like a regular folder on disk.

    “Choose Location” dialog now allows you to add a Azure Blob container (like Amazon S3 Bucket) when creating a RootFolder. Info on properties:

    • Path:
      Leave path empty to connect to the root of the container. For subfolders, path should be specified as
      a relative path without leading slash (eg. “some/folder”)

    • Container, AccountName, AccountName:
      Get these values from your Azure Portal (Storage Account -> Access Keys -> Connection String)

    • UseHttps, EndpointSuffix:
      These are optional, usually you don’t need to change the default values (checked, "")

  • Added: Global “Item check boxes” option to “Application Settings” for forcing checkbox selection mode
    regardless of being detected as a touch device.

  • Improved: Moved busy indicator from bottom status bar to breadcrumb navigation bar because
    some browsers like Chrome show status tooltip on bottom left corner and hide the UI.

  • Fixed: When there were many video files in a folder, occasionally (on app start) the thumbnails would not
    be loaded (infinite loading indicator). This happened due to a race condition in VideoThumbnailer.

  • Improved: Updated Media Player.
