List of releases:

See also the list of release notes for previous versions.

March 25, 2020

Updates and improvements:

  • MegaMatcher Accelerator was extended to support multiple connections to licensing services. It is now possible to specify several addresses host1:port1,host2:port2 (if port is omitted default 5000 is used). MMA connects to all of the services. Using neurotec-biometric-node-ctl.sh installation script, specify -L,--lic-addr-list <address:port[,address:port,...]> - list of licensing addresses.
    • Issue diagnostics. The solution detects the following issues and outputs appropriate error to MMA log:
      • Some licensing service is inaccessible.
      • Some license can be found in one service, but not the other (used license should be present in all licensing services for high-availability to work).
    • Note: there is limitation that during startup time all licensing services need to be present, otherwise they would not be used. After that there is automatic handling of service disconnect/connect, dongle unplug/plug, etc.

January 13, 2020

Fixes:

  • Fixed issues with memory usage growing if large number of Identify tasks added in short time.

September 25, 2019

Updates and improvements:

  • If face templates from the previous MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 are present, the current version of MegaMatcher Accelerator now allows either to re-extract the templates from images and re-enroll them into MegaMatcher Accelerator via a special parameter, or to continue in legacy mode configuration, which allows to use previous version templates at a cost of lower recognition quality.

August 26, 2019

The first release of MegaMatcher Accelerator 11.2.

Updates and improvements:

  • Added support for fingerprint and face templates which were generated with corresponding new algorithms from MegaMatcher 11.2 SDK.

August 6, 2019

New features:

  • A new parameter introduced to disallow enroll templates which have some non-accelerated modality. It is not enabled by default for backwards compatibility.

Fixes:

  • Fixed issues in Federation – now all templates can be downloaded from another cluster without restrictions on which cluster originally enrolled them.
  • Fixed an issue in webadmin with multiple entries not shown at the Federation connections page when cluster ID has changed for the same IP address.
  • FIxed a memory leak in Enroll operations.

Updates and improvements:

  • Improved backup speed and reliability.

July 12, 2019

New features:

  • Users are now allowed to configure which nodes will store a full copy of database, and which do not require extra disk space for that. Note: nodes which do not store data locally need to download it from other nodes which do, increasing load on them.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue with error messages, which in some cases were produced during restoring backup files from older versions of the product.
  • FIxed an issue with backup file not created in some cases if Clear operation had been used.

June 18, 2019

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue with federations connections not ensuring that cluster is ready before applying remote operations.
  • Fixed a bug with delete operations causing unfinished backup creation in some cases.
  • FIxed an issue with installation script not properly handling more than one node address provided through command line.

June 5, 2019

New features:

  • Added network and IO performance tests options to neurotec-biometric-node-ctl.sh.
  • Added shutdown button in webadmin to immediately shutdown node, and Graceful shutdown to shutdown when all responsibilities are taken over by another node.

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where Node dies with error 'Connection is dropped' on weak network.
  • Fixed an issue with neurotec-biometric-node-ctl.sh add-node functionality when config file is used.
  • Fixed issues with statistics not shown in some cases.
  • Fixed broken graphite metrics on some browsers.
  • Fixed a number of small bugs and issues.

Updates and improvements:

  • Optimized identification speed when database contains many repeated genuine fingerprint templates.
  • Improved database loading and unloading, which is now faster and does not have side effects such as temporarily inaccurate record counts.
