Known Problems - 5.0.4

Playlist menu separators on File and Bookmarks menus don't share playlist background color on Windows.

This is due to a bug in the JRE that is included in the Variations client. There is no current plan to provide a workaround.
See the entry in Java Bug Database for more information: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6575395

Quicktime 7.2 causes the Variations client not to start on PowerPC Mac

This is the result of a bad update process for Quicktime 7.2. This can be fixed by downloading the Quicktime 7.2 update from Apple's website (http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/quicktime72formac.html) and rerunning the update.

On Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) help menu search returns results unrelated to Variations

Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) has a search embedded in the help menu of every application. This search returns links to menu items within Variations and links to non-Variations help documentation. Currently, Variations does not make use of the Mac OSX help documentation features. This results in Apple's default functionality which is to return any help documentation results in the help menu search. There is no workaround.

Apple Key-Space keystroke does not pause Variations player on Mac OSX

On Mac OSX, Apple Key-Space causes Mac Spotlight search to open and does not cause the Variations player to pause playback.

generateAccessPage.sh does not work on the Variations server

Running bin/generateAccessPage.sh from dmlserv's home directory as dmlserv will fail due to missing configuration in conf/client/dml.conf. To fix this, copy the following name/value pairs from conf/server/dmlserver.xml:

<SystemProperty name="dml.z3950.Container.enabled">true</SystemProperty>
<SystemProperty name="dml.z3950.Container.host">es33.uits.indiana.edu</SystemProperty>
<SystemProperty name="dml.z3950.Container.port">2200</SystemProperty>
<SystemProperty name="dml.z3950.Container.database">Unicorn</SystemProperty>
<SystemProperty name="dml.z3950.Container.field.id.name">any</SystemProperty>

conf/client/dml.conf should then look like the following regarding these properties:

dml.z3950.Container.enabled=true
dml.z3950.Container.host=es33.uits.indiana.edu
dml.z3950.Container.port=2200
dml.z3950.Container.database=Unicorn
dml.z3950.Container.field.id.name=any
