Date of Issue: October 22nd, 2009

APR-35913: Variables: you can now use $SIMCURVE, $LINCURVE, $CALCURVE in a border
APR-46095: Platemaker: for single-sided signatures, 2 CIP3 inkdrive files are created
APR-46594: Epson x900: TP cannot be used as a 'remote proofer'
APR-47195: PDFRender: Inksaving: new options added to control the ink limits. You can control the Max-K
and Total Ink Limit values.
APR-47282: Imposition: text mark not positioned correctly
APR-47302: DFP: speed improvement for DQS jobs if DFP and Proofer are not installed on the same PC
APR-47334: Export TP: export imposed PDF; text mark is clipped
APR-47492: GDI TP: added support for double sided proofing
APR-47639: DFP: crash when reprocessing a versioning job after changing the plate setup
APR-47695: PDFRender: never-ending loop when you reprocess a flow with RasterImpose where you output only spots
APR-47699: PDFRender: Preps Text Mark not visible if you output only spot colors.
APR-47726: DigitalFilmProof: crash when using 'optimize orientation' for the proof.
APR-47730: Open Connect: workstyle not correctly honored resulting in bad double sided proofs on GrandSherpaMatic
APR-47727: JDFServer: added additional tracing to detect deadlocks
APR-47738: PDFRender: Overprint handling for 'process spot colors' is not as expected. Process spot colors are
process colors that use the PDF-construct for spot colors (which is basically not according to the phylosophy
of the PDF specification). If an object in this color is tagged with an ICC profile, the overprint handling is
not defined by the PDF specification and might not give the desired results.
As a work around, we have added a configuration setting in the PDFRender to
"Apply CMS on process colors specified as spot". Enabled will give you the current behaviour (default).
Disabled will give you a newer behaviour. We are still working on a preflight action to detect this situation.
APR-47739: Export TP: Barcodes are treated differently in Prepress 5.0 compared to Prepress 6.0 as
a result of the implementation of scaling of borders.
APR-47741: PDFRender: color bar is not centered for specific Preps templates in case of an Apogee DQS flow.
APR-47749: Open Connect: the 'tag input' setting is ignored and TIFF files are always imported as 'negative'
APR-47766: JDFServer: sheet indexes (production sets) are wrong if no stripping license available
APR-47768: Normalizer / PDFRender: manually copied font files are removed after restart of the TP.
Need a special procedure to keep them (see Technote).
APR-47774: JDFServer: Request to reduce memory requirements when importing a lot of JDF's.
APR-47775: PlateSetter TIFF: spot color plate not output if the name of the spot color is long
APR-47800: ApogeePreflight: PDFX1A-2003-v5: file gives error in Enfocus and not in Apogee
APR-47802: JDFServer: slow startup if there are many jobs on the system
APR-47827, APR-64015: PDFRender, Apogee Preflight: spot colors on proof are printed too dark
APR-47874: PDFRender: Text Mark Colors are knocked out when mapping a Process color to a Spot Color
APR-47876: JDFServer: MIS-locking: resource update sent, but no notification
APR-47904: AvalonN4: TP crashes upon startup because media is missing.

APR-48079: JobStore: nightly house keeping tasks are not running anymore.
APR-48088: PDFRender: rendering fails in a job with rational tangent or Adobe accurate screens
if you map a process color to a spot color.
APR-48093: JDFServer: PlateMaker: occasional deadlock when sending revisions
APR-48109: PDFRender: Specific Press Profiles cause errors when applying InkSave
APR-48113: JDFServer: JDF with Runlist rotation set to zero degrees fails
APR-48121: PageMaster: Specific JDF with stripping: binding style not picked up correctly
APR-48125: Normalizer: 'offending command cshow' for PostScript that passed fine through Prepress 5.0
