​Switch 10, update 1

New Features Covered in this update

1. Enhanced Log Export
Key enhancements include creating separate log files, exporting only new messages and cleanup of exported logs.

2. Database Module
This module modernizes the communication between a database application and Switch. Scripting is no longer required, making it easier and faster for customers and integrators to build communication paths between Switch and an MIS or any database.

3. Inject XMP metadata
External job metadata can be added to a file as an XMP package, allowing a job to be processed by external processes like prepress workflows and not loose any important job metadata that may be required in the future. Next to adding new XMP packages to a job file, the tool is also able to update information.

4. Updated CS5 Configurators
The Adobe CS5 configurators for InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop have been enhanced allowing for more automation and support for CS5.5.
Now all kind of file types can be send to InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop. The Illustrator configurator now also accepts job folders. Finally the InDesign configurator was improved so it allows exporting files to ePub.

5. Improved SwitchClient Pick List
The SwitchClient now sets the default setting of dropdown lists to “null” forcing the user to make a selection before submission of a job. This helps to avoid mistakes i.e. the wrong choice was selected by default because the customer made no selection before submitting.

6. The new SwitchClient on iPad
The all-new iPad SwitchClient is an exciting app that allows you to use SwitchClient on your iPad allowing you to submit, route and check files within your Switch Server environment. This App will be available in the Apple App Store soon.
