New in This Release

Modified by Rob Evans on Nov 8, 2018

Altium NEXUS Server 1.1

Released: 09 October 2018 - Version: 1.1.4 (build 125)
Released: 11 July 2018 - Version: 1.1.3 (build 111)

This release sees further beneficial enhancements to the Altium NEXUS Server and its related technologies. In addition, numerous fixes have been made to resolve issues raised by customers through the AltiumLive Community.

While the Altium NEXUS Server 1.1 installer includes automated backup of your existing Server, it is always a good idea to make a pre-update backup of your data yourself - taking a redundancy copy off to one side as it were. This provides additional safety, should any unforeseen technical difficulties arise. It is advised to test out a new release of the Altium NEXUS Server on a different machine, before updating your production instance. Use of Virtual Machines can be invaluable in this respect.
While connection to Altium NEXUS Server 1.1 is possible from previous versions of Altium NEXUS, users are encouraged to update to the latest version of Altium NEXUS - especially where Server enhancements relate to changes to the user interface within Altium NEXUS (such as the Explorer panel).

Managed Project Enhancements

This release sees the detailed project page for a managed project extended with additional capabilities, including an enhanced Releases tab that provides the ability to view information for any released revision of a project. Within this view, you'll be able to see:

  • Release details.
  • Graphical preview.
  • Parameters.
  • Parts list.

Enhancements to Comments for Managed Projects

On the design-side, the Comments panel has been enhanced to provide an improved user interface, with support for avatars, and comment filtering.

Enhancements to the Component Editor

Previously, when creating/editing a managed component through the Component Editor in its Single Component Editing mode, newly-created domain models for that component would automatically be created in a Models sub-folder, beneath the parent component. This release brings a beneficial enhancement in that you can now define default target folders in which models should be created, or override those to specify a different target folder, should you need - affording you greater control and flexibility over how your models are created and stored. In addition, the revision state is now presented directly under the graphical view of a referenced model Item, so you can now see, at-a-glance, the lifecycle state of that Item Revision, and whether it is the latest revision.

Part Request Functionality Restored

This release sees the return of Part Request functionality - restoring the ability for designers to request parts they need - and don't currently have - either through their design software, or through the NEXUS Server's browser interface. For an organization that employs a dedicated library department to grow and maintain its design components - accessible to all engineers and designers in that organization - it makes sense to submit requests for new (missing) components to that department. The Part Requests feature allows an engineer to put in a request for one or more parts to be created, to a member of a librarian-nominated role, and get notified when that request has either been processed, and the component(s) made available, or rejected (and why). The requestor supplies as much key information to support their request as possible (manufacturer and part number(s), description(s), any relevant datasheet (PDF or URL)). Stub Component Items can even be created that the librarian can then run with (and finish off).
