Well… Copied the .jar files over, restarted the service…
The plugins section of the management console now doesn’t feature ‘meetings’ - instead it now has ‘pade focus component’ and ‘pade videofocus plugin’.
On login, the largest notable change is all the icons are now unicode placeholders, looking seriously ugmo. As the filesizes were vastly different I’ll guess at the including font hasn’t been. The chat still fails to update in realtime…
There is however a new button in the lower bar - also a unicode placeholder - Share Screen - casual testing suggests this works as intended, allowing me to share the entire desktop or a single window.
As this seems to be a reaplcement for ‘meetings’ - is there any particular reason you didn’t have me just install pade?
Just had the crazy idea to poke in the logs, under ‘error’ http://dpaste.com/04RMWKF wasn’t there previously. Potentially related.
Poking through the settings, the addition of sections to ease customisation is a good touch. I’ll definitely be playing with that later.
Attempting with chromium seems to render a lot better - all the icons are present and accounted for - there’s a lot more buttons in that. The black circle that dominates the center when you start now has the image I’ve attached to my IM client - quite curious as to how it’s managed to get at that. Seems my SEL policy is a little too lax if the browser can randomly help itself to things.
Testing again in FF produced all the ‘missing’ buttons, although the layout is insane. It now draws the profile image. I think that was being rendered before, but the scaling was off and all I saw was black from the corner, and a few distorted pixels of the text. It appears the chat actually updates, but it seems to render behind the backdrop to the chat window, the lower text entry box is at the top, etc - but the point is the messages are being forwarded. I’ll assume the previous trial had some residual from the previously generated room(under ‘meetings’) … this run was a newly generated room, and was vastly different.
What’s the story with failure on firefox? As in, why does this seem incapable of coping with basic things like icons and general functionality. I’d rather not mandate specific software for something that should be a generic application…
