FontExplorer X Server For the ultimate in font management, you can now add the powerful network administration components of FontExplorer® X Server to your Font Explorer X Pro client solution. End users still work with the same application, but new capabilities are unlocked to allow collaboration with others and to streamline workflow efficiency. As a unique, turnkey solution, FontExplorer X Server delivers full-featured font management functions that users demand, a solid architecture and intuitive nature that administrators need. System Requirements FontExplorer X Server runs on both Apple® systems (Mac OS X 10.4.x, 10.5.x and 10.6.x) and servers (Mac OS X Server 10.4.x, 10.5.x and 10.6.x). For larger installations a dedicated server is recommended. To use all new functions of FontExplorer X Server version 1.5, FontExplorer X Pro version 2.5 is required! Installation To install FontExplorer X Server open the installer application and follow the installation procedure. After the installation completed, open the System Preferences and locate and open the FontExplorer X Server pref pane. Click the key-lock symbol and enter an administrator password. Click the "Server License" Tab. To enter the license you received click the select button and locate the license file in the upcoming dialog. Click OK and check the license data displayed in the "Server License" pane. Click the start button. Close the System Preferences and start FontExplorer X Pro either on the same machine or on another one in your network to configure your FontExplorer X Server. Please check the Manual to find out more about installation and configuration. Changes in Version 1.5 New Features • The interface of the Server Preference Pane has been optimized • Now it is possible to create Master/Slave configurations to balance the server load on several machines. Those servers can replicate by schedule. Please find more information about this in the Administrator Manual • The LDAP connection has been expanded to include a direct user authentication against the LDAP server. All users known to the LDAP can now login to the FontExplorer X Server with their standard domain password • The administrator now can hide the Local Library and local sets for FontExplorer X Pro client users • The administrator now can disable the font import into the Local Library for FontExplorer X Pro client users • Administrators now can make a set of fonts mandatory for download and/or activation for every user by activating this option in the server set property dialog • The integrated Backup function now has a scheduler • The target directory for the integrated Backup now can be set by the administrator • Resolved • Server fonts would become disabled and could not be reenabled after fast user switching or use of the "refresh fonts" function. Improvements • Improved handling in Account Management to permit deleting users or groups via the backspace or delete key Known Issues • Mac OS X 10.6 – Activating and deactivating fonts is somewhat slower than under Mac OS X 10.5. This can have an influence on logout time when many fonts are activated. An upcoming release of Mac OS X may resolve this • Font Classification cannot be applied to server fonts • Server fonts activated via plugin request will not be automatically deactivated when the requesting application quits even though the option is selected in the plug-in manager Other changes • This release contains an updated "Software License Agreement". The limitation to use only one instance of the server has been removed, as this no longer coincides with the new "Master/Slave" feature For more information please visit www.fontexplorerx.com Linotype and FontExplorer are trademarks of Linotype GmbH registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and may be registered in certain jurisdictions.
