Moblab "Pause":

This is a new feature, it allow users with particularly long running suites, normally storage qualification, to pause their Moblab so they can update the software

or stop generating data if they have a particularly slow uplink to Google.

It should be noted - this feature does NOT stop the current running tests. It prevents new tests from being scheduled, you can then have to wait until all your DUT's

are in "ready" state. After then you can safely update/reboot your Moblab without losing data.

Moblab will automatically turn on Pause feature if your disk space is getting low. This typically happens when your Moblab is generating data faster than your

internet connection can copy it to Google. The Pause will allow time for your Moblab to catch up and you can unpause when there is enough disk space available.

Remote Console

Bug fixes and some changes to how often data is sent back to CPCon about failed DUT's.

Uploader

Improved performance when there are problems or slow connections, uploader will now only retry files that have not already been copied to the cloud rather than

re-trying the copy of all the files in the in the test result.

UI

Run Suite: The "Other" Tab now has a drop down list of suites you can run. You can still select an option to enter a suite name that is not on the list.

Other non user visible bug fixes.

This likely will be the last release that includes the Old UI - we have got feedback on features that need to be included in the new UI and are working on those

for the next release. We will address all feedback before the remove the Old UI.
