What's New?

STK Scalability 1.4
  • New Features
  • Improvements
    • Improved assembly serialization to minimize Large Object Heap (LOH) fragmentation.
  • Bug Fixes
    • AddTask now throws an ArgumentException when trying to add the same task to a job more than once to prevent a case where a job would never finish.
STK Scalability 1.3
  • The minimum version of the Microsoft .NET Framework required has changed from 3.5 to 4.5.
  • New Features
    • New options to secure communications between the coordinator and agents/clients using SSL (TLS v1.2) have been added. Read the new Connect to the Coordinator with TLS1.2 topic for details.
STK Scalability 1.2
  • New Features
    • New options to control the lifetime of host processes have been added. Hosts are recyclable after any one of a variety of time, memory, or job-based conditions have been satisfied. The Agent Tray Application has a new Host Recycling panel to set values for these options. The values set in the Agent Tray Application UI will be overridden if a submitted job's TaskEnvironment's RecycleSettings have been set programmatically.
  • Improvements
    • Reduced the amount of logging the external capability checkers generated in the agent log.
    • Improved capture of task standard output.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a bug where running parallel coverage with tirem could cause a host to hang in rare conditions.

    • New developer documentation and examples.
  • Improvements
    • Improved performance when submitting numerous jobs. The number of maximum concurrent jobs that can be submitted can be configured with the MaxConcurrentJobSubmissions property.
    • Improved how unserializable exceptions get handled. If a thrown exception is unserializable, an Exception object is thrown that contains the message of the original exception.
    • Added a way to wait for a task to finish canceling. You can pass true to the Cancel method and WaitUntilDone will not unblock until the task is finished canceling.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a bug where a custom configuration specified with SetConfigurationFile was not deleted after the host shuts down.
