MIB Smithy SDK 4.6.2 Released

November 10th, 2013 by Michael Kirkham

MIB Smithy SDK 4.6.2 is now available for download. This release fixes two issues introduced in the 4.6 release, and one other minor issue that’s been around for a while was only recently noticed while working on the MIB Views release under OSX.

In recognition of the unreasonable length of time between the 4.5 and 4.6 releases, and the expectation of periodic updates during the support period, I’m making this release available to all customers whose support period was due to expire after October 1, 2012 (if your support was due to expire after that date, but before December 31, 2013, you will find that your support period has been extended to December 31, 2013).

I meant to do this with the 4.6 release, but have been highly focused on getting the other product builds out as well, and similar arrangements will be made for those users.

Changes in this release:

5935: Host IDs not displaying correctly

Host IDs were not displaying correctly in the license message/dialog due to a change in the 4.6 release. The issue only affected formatting for display.

5951: SNMPv3 privacy without authentication regression

A bug was introduced during refactoring for the 4.6 release making it was possible to send SNMPv3 messages with the privacy flag set (and encrypted) but without the authentication flag set or authentication done, which is illegal.

5957: Incomplete cleanup on session closure

The Tcl channels associated with SNMP session sockets were not cleaned up properly upon session closure, which could result in a thread deadlock at application exit time.
