Known Issue List

  • CMS-3614 - After applying the patch end users may need to clear their browser cache in the CM1 user interface in order to see the new changes to the Rich text Editor and plugins. 
  • CMS-3389 - Customer using the secure sections feature will have problems starting the DTS after applying the patch.  They should contact technical support for a work around prior to attempting to patch their instance. 
  • CMS-3257 - Customers using the MySQL database server as the backing database for the DTS, will lose the MySQL Connector jar if it was previously placed into the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/perc-lib directory.  To correct this problem the MySQL Connector for Java may be installed or symlinked into the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/lib directory.  Percussion does not include this connector as part of our installation due to license incompatibility issues.
  • CMS-3490 - Customers patching the DTS on Windows Servers will need to reinstall the DTS Windows service by using the "<InstallDir>\Deployment\Server\bin\service.bat remove" and  "<InstallDir>\Deployment\Server\bin\service.bat install" commands.  Once the service has been successfully re-installed, the Percussion DTS Windows Service will start. 
  • CMS-3280 - Customer's running the DTS on a server that also has native APR libraries installed, may run into problems starting the DTS HTTPS connector.   The HTTPS connector may fail to start with an invalid Keystore configuration.  To resolve this issue, remove or comment out the following line in the <InstallDir>/Deployment/Server/conf/server.xml file.  Restarting the DTS after this change will resolve the APR related errors.

<Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" SSLEngine="on"/>

e.g. 

<!-- <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" SSLEngine="on"/> -->.  

Navigation Skip Link - ADA/508 Validation Warnings

Some customers have reported Skip Link warnings after applying the patch.  This may be because the Navigation widget now generates the Skip Link by default with a tabindex of -1 to hide the Skip Link until website theme css has been updated.  If you encounter this warning, update the Layout properties of your Navigation widget and set the tabindex of the Skip Link to 1.  Then in your Design->web_resources\themename\theme.css make sure that you have styled the Skip Link. 

For example, this is the CSS used on the help.percussion.com theme:

a.perc-navigation-skiplink {
left:-999px;
position:absolute;
top:auto;
width:1px;
height:1px;
overflow:hidden;
z-index:-999;
}
a.perc-navigation-skiplink:focus, a.perc-navigation-skiplink:active {
color: #fff;
background-color:#133c55;
left: 0;
top: 0;
width: 30%;
height: auto;
overflow:auto;
margin: 10px 35%;
padding:5px;
border-radius: 15px;
border:4px solid #ee5336;
text-align:center;
font-size:1.2em;
z-index:999;
}
