Alarm Notification

Alarm Voice
Fixed
Fixed issue where a call in the call list would drop out if the previous call reached its answer timeout.

Allen-Bradley Driver

Logix v21 Driver
Fixed
Made optimization improvements for bulk write operations.
Logix v21 Driver

Fixed an issue where timeout exceptions were being ignored during Logix browse. Now, failed attempts will retry the browse while browsing the global scope, as well as when the program scope times out.
Logix v21 Driver
Fixed
The port on Logix driver device connections can now be configured.

Ignition Platform

Designer
Fixed
Launching a Designer or Vision Client from Edge no longer continually restarts due to a change in module status from licensing
Designer
Fixed
Added better error reporting when attempting to edit tags from the Designer while the tag provider is disabled.
Gateway
Feature
On all user sources, the Cache Validation Timeout property can all now be disabled if set to a number less than zero.
Gateway
Fixed
Fixed an issue where the JVM would crash on gateway startup on some ARMv7 devices, due to the SQLite JDBC driver jar. The driver jar has been rolled back to a prior version that does not cause crashes.
Gateway
Fixed
Fixed issue in 7.9 where the Alarm Voice Notification Module would fail to start on certain Java 8 JDKs (i.e OpenJDK8_b242)

Gateways will now automatically be assigned a hostname to use for the metro keystore if one wasn’t specified during the first startup.
Gateway Network
Fixed
Prevents a security issue that could enable attackers to remotely execute code on a gateway via the gateway network.
Gateway Network - Application
Fixed
Fixed an issue where routing to redundant remote gateways can end up targeting the incorrect gateway based on disconnect/reconnect timing.
Gateway Web Interface
Fixed
Fixed an issue where adding new users or roles to the default user source on Edge gateways could potentially lock up the gateway.
Gateway Web Interface
Feature
An appropriate error is now displayed when login to the gateway web interface fails due to an LDAP communication issue
Scripting
Fixed
Updated the timeout parameter description on system.tag.writeSynchronous to state that the value is in milliseconds, not seconds.

OPC-COM

DA
Fixed
Prevents an error that could occur in the COM Tunneler when sending array tags from a server.

Fixed a bug that caused high CPU usage by a DefaultDispatcher-worker thread.

Reporting

Report Designer

Fixed an issue where pasting LinkedText from a reporting TextShape component would cause the report designer to become unresponsive.

Fixed
Fixed an issue where enabling the "New Page Per Row" option on reporting table groups could potentially lock up the designer.

SFC

Designer
Fixed
Prevents some potential NullPointerExceptions that could occur when starting multiple SFCs simultaneously.

Vision

Client

Fixed an issue where clients launched from the Native Client Launcher would not be able to print (using both built-in component print functions and the creatPrintJob function) text in tables or labels
Client
Fixed
Fixed an issue where entering numbers into a Numeric Text Field under some locales (specifically those using commas as decimal separators) could set the value to an incorrect number.
Client
Fixed
Prevents an IllegalStateException that could occur on Vision Property Change scripts after logging out of the client.
Components
Feature
Added the ability to select a contiguous section of alarms on the Alarm Status Table via shift click.
Components

Updated the Template Canvas component to avoid reloading contained templates if only position properties have changed.
