|8.1.0||1st April, 2021||First release in the Karakorm series. This is a Major release.|
New Features and Enhancements
- All features from the Resilience series specific to a cloud-based collaboration model that evolved to support a distributed workforce have been integrated into this release alongside the already available features like the new Zoom Desktop application, enhanced WebClient support etc.

- Veritone Image AI is supported now.
- Facility to launch Saved Searches is made available from the Web Management Console.
- Periodic Search and Execute will now by default restrict the search to the time interval defined.
- Search reports generated from various modules like the Search & Execute action launched from Saved Searches, or the periodic Search & Execute or the newly introduced Trends section are all organized under appropriate categories, making it easier for users to identify the reports that they are looking for.
- Search reports naming convention has been modified to include the name of the Saved Search or the Trend, for better usability.
- Support for S3 Intelligent Tiering, and S3 Infrequent Access has been added.
- Support for exporting data timeline to SRT/AVID/Text formats has been added.
- Set of rich REST APIs conforming to OpenAPI spec is made available in this release.

- Client-side hub now issues notifications from the system tray Evolphin menu for completion or failure of jobs, or other critical feedback.
- Only shared saved searches will be eligible to be marked to run periodically via the Search & Execute feature.
This section describes the issues that were fixed in this release of Zoom.
|FTS-86||Curator is not getting restarted by the Wrapper service where it is expected to be restarted after a config change; this is fixed now.|
|ZS-11764||Logs servlet endpoints were openly accessible without any auth; this security vulnerability is fixed now.|
|ZS-11759||Automatic restart service was not working as expected when the server machine time zone differed from the default time zone specified; this lead to the service getting restarted at unexpected times, as well as more often than intended. This is fixed now.|
|ZS-11780||There were network calls related to authentication module that were being issued to the server at the rate of once in 5 seconds leading to unnecessary traffic; this has been changed to function optimally now.|
|WC-2424||Few metadata values were not getting displayed in search results of the Webclient, even though they were showing up correctly while browsing; this is observed when there are more than 2 metadata columns configured in the view.|
|EJH-354||High-res files could not be purged from S3 when the operation is invoked from CLI; this is fixed now.|
|ZS-11794||Zoom server is failed to restart after a purge operation in case the archive spec was not initialized (irrespective of whether or not the archive module itself was enabled). This is fixed now.|
|PNG-2163 / PNG-2166||Many asset like Prproj, aep, icml etc did not have Date created or modified. Some assets would also display meaningless entries like Nan/Nan etc if they did not carry relevant values in their embedded xmp metadata fields. This has been resolved now.|
|EJH-358||S3 Ingest was failing if the folder is having same name files with different extensions; this is resolved now.|
|PNG-2151||Import data timelines was only bringing the last data point; this is fixed now.|
|PNG-2152||Menu option for importing timelines as markers was not shown in the asset details section of the Links tab of the plugin panel; fixed now.|
|PNG-2116||Spurious messages indicating that there were no unresolved links was getting displayed; this unwanted alert has been removed now.|
|PNG-2167||“Write Clip Markers to XMP” confirmation message was not displayed when user imports data timeline via Set markers from the asset details page; this is fixed now.|
|PNG-2117||For specific assets, Assets metadata fetching failed due to unknown error was getting displayed while viewing the asset details; this is fixed now.|
|ZS-11811||Metadata property value deletion on an older revision was not possible if the more recent revisions had a property deleted from them; this is fixed now.|
|ZS-11774||Audit long entry identifier was getting reset between messages in multi-message commands like Import; this made debugging very hard. This is fixed now.|
|ZC-1539||Archive module metadata were not setting up for image sequences which are ingested via migration; this is fixed now.|
|ZC-1544||XMPCOMMAND executable was returning invalid dates of 1904 or 1900 if the corresponding metadata fields were empty in the source file. Instead of keeping these incorrect entries, Zoom fills in the Date Created metadata field with the ingest time of the asset.|
|VABNG-3456||Collection tab of the Zoom Desktop application was found to be slow in some cases; this performance issue has been rectified now.|
|ZC-1558||Copy of large high-res media in VideoFx flows involving Linux ingest servers was found to be very slow in some situations; this has been rectified by increasing the block size used by the copy APIs. To facilitate this solution, this option is made available as a configurable parameter in the Zoom client now.|
|WC-2407||Count of comments on an asset in a collection were found to be incorrect; this is fixed now.|
|FTS-82||AI suggestion builder included in 8.0 was found to be inordinately slow; this has been resolved now by opting out of Suggestion builder, and using search functionality instead in the backend.|
|WC-2405||Adding the first reply to a comment in preview of video files was failing; this is fixed now.|
|PNG-1932||Import timeline markers was incorrectly reporting success even if the operation had failed; this is resolved now.|
|ZS-11467||For some high-res assets on S3, the transcoder dashboard showed the size as 0 bytes incorrectly; this is fixed now.|
|WC-1402||In Webclient, advance search results were limited to the count of assets per page; this is fixed now.|
|PNG-2162||Links information was not getting saved correctly for links that are not added in an AE composition; this is fixed now.|
|PNG-2177||Filter in import data timeline was doing a case-sensitive search; this is now changed to be case-insensitive.|
|PNG-2140||The Adobe API to query for data timelines was not returning expected values; because of this we were seeing an invalid parameter error message; this has been worked around by adding additional checks in the plugin code now.|
|VABNG-3526||It was not possible to assign DRM metadata using the “Assign Metadata” action of the Search & Execute feature. This is fixed now.|
