- In a VideoLX setup, while viewing the transcoding jobs on the Process Monitor in the Web Management Console, the latest jobs are shown on top now.
- For the Process Monitor in a VideoLX setup, a failed job’s end date is removed as soon as it is submitted for a rerun now, rather than after it starts running.
- For the Process Monitor in a VideoLX setup, jobs list is now displayed page-wise.
- On a VideoLX setup where a transcoder is set to copy the low-res proxy to the third party mount path, if that third party mount path becomes inaccessible while a job is running then this job fails now.

- For a VideoLX setup, an in-place ingest may now be configured so that the original file does not get replaced with the newly generated low-res file after ingest. To know more about configuring this, check here.

Major Pending Issues
- For Adobe Illustrator using Adobe Zoom plugin on a Mac, unversioned links are not shown under Linked Files or during check-in.
- Sometimes, multiple low-res revisions are generated and checked-in for assets ingested using Data Migration with VideoLX.
- Thumbnails are not shown for R3D files in any desktop or web-based asset-browser, like Asset Browser or Web Client.
- If multiple Transcoders are assigned to a project in a VideoLX setup, jobs are being submitted to the multiple transcoders and getting failed after the conversion is completed by one of them.
