 Latest Collection of Hotfixes for TIBCO Spotfire Web Player 3.0


Release Date Patch # Description
23-December-2009 A57170 Fixes the following issues:
  • Active links in analyses get strikethrough when printed.
  • Some analyses containing Hierarchy checkbox filters fail to open (consistently) for some users.
  • Mashup Customization settings forgotten when using Scheduled Updates.
04-November-2009 A55817 Fixes the following issues:
  • Unable to open analysis containing Treemap when navigation is reset for hierarchy containing empty values.
  • Y-Axis labels in Cross tables are not positioned correctly.
  • Page tabs shift to the left when selecting tabs (using Internet Explorer 6).
  • Active tab is sometimes not displayed when opening analysis (using Internet Explorer 6).

22-September-2009 A55246 Fixes the following issues:
  • When using Impersonation with the Web Player, end-users may be reauthenticated as the Impersonation account (instead of their own) after session timeouts.

    This bug fix does not address the problem with invalid sessions caused by the TIBCO Spotfire Server 3.0 being restarted without restarting the Web Player Server as well - in this scenario, end-users may be reauthenticated as the Impersonation account (instead of their own). Therefore it is recommended to always restart the Web Player Server whenever the TIBCO Spotfire Server is restarted. It is also recommended that the Impersonation account should be given only very limited access (to the Spotfire Library as well as licenses).
  • Information Services may show same prompt twice.
  • Export data from Pie Chart gives incorrect data for very small pie sectors.
  • Long column names are truncated when exporting Cross Table or Summary Table to PowerPoint.
  • Analysis with copied Text Areas containing action links may fail to open. Error message is: "An item with the same key has already been added".
  • Analysis with Cross Table linked to empty data table cannot be opened in Web Player.
10-July-2009 A54984 Fixes the following issue:
  • Web Player JavaScript API problems on Firefox 3. Permission denied exceptions occur and causes scripts not to function.
23-June-2009 A54817 Fixes the following issues:
  • Scroll focus is sometimes lost in the Web Player.
  • Scrolling is out of sync when row height is more than 1.
  • Web Player server is unresponsive when many analyses are refreshed automatically with scheduled updates.
  • State not saved correctly when analyses is refreshed on a server with anonymous impersonation login.
  • Internet Explorer script errors when using Scheduled updates with automatic refresh.
  • Range slider filters can in some cases be disabled.

NOTE: Make sure to apply the latest TIBCO Spotfire 3.0 patch - available here - before applying the TIBCO Spotfire Web Player 3.0 patch.
