The largest change in v4.3.0 is a full automatic update system which allows us to push updates without having to manually remote into every system. Any pending update will be installed once all the maintenance tasks are completed, which by default runs at 1am. You can change the maintenance window if you wish to. Automatic updates will be enabled by default, please contact us if you want them disabled for your site.

Happy days for the keyboard lovers, we’re got keyboard shortcuts in DIVA Client! You can check them all out in our help documents, or hit Ctrl / or Cmd / to see what’s available in DIVA Client.

Full release notes

v4.1.0 introduces audit logging, where we record what users complete what actions and at what time. E.g. UserA gave UserB read access to DriveC at time X. For now it’s just recorded in the database, and we’ll be adding a way to view this information in the future. We can access the data directly in the database for now if you need to know anything.

Full release notes

Today we release DIVA version 4, with a whole new client, including macOS 10.14 Mojave support. You can read more about the new client here.

Full release notes

We’ve changed the timing of a number of automated tasks behind the scenes so they’re not all running at once, and each will then run faster.

Full release notes

Version 3.0.3 fixes a few edge cases around changing drive permissions and restoring files from backup when they’ve been deleted.

Full release notes

The remote error tracking platform we use, Raygun, has a new performance monitoring system. We’re now using this to identify slow parts of the software, and fix the highest priority events.

Full release notes

Welcome to DIVA v3, with Avid NEXIS compatible bin locking. Read more about this release, or view the full changelog below.

Full release notes

We’re back onto scheduled releases today, being the second Monday of the month. Just a few bug fixes today while we continue to work on the next major release.

Full release notes

A late Monday release to address some edge case issues a few customers have noticed. We’ve also introduced the ability to run specific backup maintenance tasks on demand.

Full release notes

A quick follow up patch for yesterdays v2.16.5 release, which failed when running overnight scheduled maintenance tasks.

Full release notes

v2.16.5 is primarily project backup improvements and fixes. You should see faster uploads to Backblaze, and the system is better at handling network issues during uploads.

Full release notes

2.16.4 brings another bunch of bug fixes. We’ve much improved dealing with long file paths when deleting a drive, and also fixed a YSOD when editing a users last name. Performance of backing up large files to Backblaze has also been improved.

Full release notes

We’ve converted over the project archive system to use the same engine as the new B2 backup system. This ensures that the selected files, the output structure, and the metadata are consistant.

Full release notes

First patch of the new year, where we address a problem setting drive permissions. The bug would deny access to any user who had the drive mounted while changing permissions on the drive, whoops!

Full release notes

Introducing cloud backup of Avid project files. We’ve partnered with Backblaze to securely and safely backup Avid bins on a regular basis. There are also a full set of restore tools available. Read the full announcement for further details.

Full release notes

Mostly bug fixes today. We’ve included the ability to delete computers from the list of edit suites so you can keep that list tidy. Sometimes on a Mac the operating system can timeout when trying to mount a drive. The timeout duration has been reduced to 5 seconds so it doesn’t appear like everything is locked.

Full release notes

Under the System/Edit Suites menu you can see a list of every computer which has DIVA Client installed. This includes the version of Avid which the suite is running to make it easier to keep track of who needs updates or not. We’ve also recored their IP address to give an overview of your post network.

Full release notes

Despite appearances, our developers haven’t created an amazing new middle out compression algorithm and quartered the size of all your media. No, instead they just can’t add. So we’ve fixed the bug where suddenly your drives look they have a lot less used space on them.

Full release notes

Aside from a couple of bug fixes, we’ve now got the same project management interface for all projects as well as on project drives, and all drive Health Checks are now faster.

Full release notes

We’re happy to (finally) announce macOS 10.12 Sierra support! Along the journey we’ve also improved the performance and reliability of mounting drives on the Mac.

Full release notes

Patch day! Probably nothing here you’ll ever come across, but we’ve tidied up a few things mostly around the update system.

Full release notes

With today’s release of Avid Media Composer 8.6.1, Avid have finally moved away from the use of .avs files for managing each project’s settings, and have fully committed to the .xml file format. Part of our project detection and sharing system relied on this .avs file existing within the project folder. We’ve modified the system so it will now work with either a .xml or a .avs.

Full release notes

Today we’ve got a maintenance release to address to a few annoying bugs, primarily to get notification emails working again. Our email provider made a change to their API, which we only just caught.

Full release notes

Some of you may have noticed that you’re getting alert emails twice? Or you just ignore them anyway? Either way, we’ve stopped that annoying habit, so you’ll only get a zillion instead of a bajillion emails every day now.

Full release notes

Avid have recently made a change to Media Composer where to open a project, the user must have full write access to the project files. As a result, we’ve decided to remove the read permission for Avid Project drives, and convert any existing read permissions to write.

Full release notes

DIVA v2.13.0 introduces External Drives - this allows you to add remote network shares and FTP servers as DIVA Drives, which your editors can then easily mount in the suite. They can even be added to favourites! We’ve added to the help documentation how to add an external drive, as well as a walkthrough video.

Full release notes

We’ve noticed more and more read-only files appearing on Basic drives. These make it really hard for users to delete folders and move things around.

Full release notes

Introducing DIVA Focus, our new cloud central monitoring platform. As all the system monitoring until now has been performed within the local system, if DIVA Server went down for any reason, we wouldn’t know about it until someone called us. Now we can monitor the health of DIVA externally, and immediately be informed if anything is wrong.

Full release notes

Now that OS X 10.11 El Capitan is out, as well as DAVE 13, there’s been some changes in the way that OS X mounts drives. Please note that Avid Media Composer DOES NOT officially support OS X 10.11 yet!

Full release notes

Today’s release ensures that all drives are un-mounted when quitting the Mac client. We’ve also removed the quit prompt on the clients if you’re not signed in.

Full release notes

We have discovered that some new MXF folders aren’t being shared to other users. Installing this update may cause a re-scan of the MXF databases.

Full release notes

Another patch release, where we’ve improved the auto-update process for the Windows applications, as well as added some debug tooling to make it easier to find issues in the future.

Full release notes

A tiny fix for the Windows client. With 2.10.3 we converted the client config from an ini file to the registry. At one site, some suites didn’t correctly copy over the configured server address, so crashed when trying to connect to nothing. We’ve added an extra check to make sure the config value exists, and if not, show the user the configuration screen so they can set it.

Full release notes

We recently discovered an issues where Windows users could not open bins if they were inside a subfolder. This was due to a change in the file permissions required by Media Composer on Windows.

Full release notes

We recently discovered that sub-folders within a users folder in a project did not have the correct permissions applied, and other users could save those bins. We’ve added some background processing to ensure that doesn’t happen, as well as some other small fixes around detecting new projects.

Full release notes

We have a large collection of fixes today. Most of this is behind the scenes, and are to ensure the smooth running of DIVA Server and Node.

Full release notes

A couple of fixes: one to handle drives being disconnected while being scanned, and the other to correctly start a project repair job.

Full release notes

A couple of sites have noticed problems with mounting drive favourties on Windows. This relates to the list of available drive letters not being ready by the time the user has clicked mount on the favourite. v2.9.2 resolves this problem, as well as a couple of all small tweaks.

Full release notes

We’ve made big changes behind the scenes to help with monitoring your DIVA performance. Our new method of managing drives ensures problems are better detected and presented to you for troubleshooting.

Full release notes

Two new major features are allowing you to manage a users drive access directly from the user management interface, and being able to type a drive quota instead of using the slider.

Full release notes

Drive Sets allow you to create one of each type of drive using a base name, add them to a favourite, and assign users, all from one interface.

Full release notes

2.7.6 reports on two new events: when a users directory on a media drive is missing their MXF directory, and when the project scanning engine cannot access a user created directory.

Full release notes

Two small fixes; one which corrects a database flag when updates are the installed, the second which correctly sets permissions on Other Users directories when a project is initially shared.

Full release notes

This maintenance release is focused around improving the automatic update prodcedure for both Server and Node.

Full release notes

We’ve improved the message display and handling on Client, primarily for Windows. Only important messages will be queued for when a user next connects, otherwise if they’re not online when the message is generated the message will be discarded.

Full release notes

A new event is reported when a file has been added to a drive with a path too long for Node to process.

Full release notes

Introducing the Event Log, which monitors system events and sends email notification emails based on their serverity.

Full release notes

There is now a number of different states for a drive, which is reflected in the Client. For example if a Node goes offline, then the drive will display as ‘Node Offline’ in the Client, and prevent a user from attempted to mount it.

Full release notes

A small follow up to last weeks major release which improves the long running stability of the OS X Client.

Full release notes

Today we’re releasing DIVA v2.5.5 which contains a number of behind the scenes optimisations, mostly focused around ensuring project permissions are correct when moving bins between users and unprotected.

Full release notes

We’re pleased to announce the major 2.5.0 release which includes drive quotas and auto-updates for the OS X client.

Full release notes

Features media: Can now move media from one user to another on Avid Media drives from the permissions page. client: Display drive used space on details pane. fusion: Changed layout to use a fluid width. Display drive space used and free. server: Improved error handling to nodes.
