									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
