NEWS for version 1.12

Release date: 2019-04-10
Intended compatibility: WSUS Offline Update 11.6.1+ (r1032)

Internal changes

New URLs for the virus definition files with LinkIDs

The four virus definition files are now referenced with URLs, with refer to LinkIDs first. The filename on the server can only be retrieved after several redirections.

Several functions had to be adjusted to work with these LinkIDs: calculate_static_downloads_wddefs8, download_single_file, download_single_file_failsafe, and cleanup_client_directory.

Note: Some debug messages in these functions have been left enabled, to see, if anything changes. They will be removed in one of the next versions.

To start using the new virus definitions, you also need the new static download files, which are available in the version control system:

You could place them into the wsusoffline/static/custom directory.

But maybe it is best, to wait for the next version of WSUS Offline Update, because the installation scripts also changed.


The download links for this version are:
