The format matches the format used by Chrome's Bypass list, including a special token for variations of localhost, <local>. For example, to add an exception for localhost, for all addresses matching 192.168.10.* and scala.com: WEBCLIP_ProxyBypass="<local>;scala.com;192.168.10.*" If you use this setting, <local> must be present if you want to bypass the proxy for localhost. 
    •  WEBCLIP_UseOSProxySettingsThis boolean tells the webclip to use the OS for proxy settings, which overrides WEBCLIP_ProxyBypass. PD-7260
  • Added a new mmos.ini, NETCLIENT_RestartOnMetadataChange, which controls whether the Player restarts when metadata is changed. The default is "on" for previous behavior. PD-7284
  • Fixed an issue with Pick.Sequential and Pick.Shuffle commands, when MustPlay(On) that prevents a playlist from getting stuck if none of its media items are played due to schedules or other conditions, or if it contains no media items.PD-7290

  • More than 1,024 individual Players can now be added to a maintenance job. It should be noted that the use of Player Groups is still a preferred approach to doing so.  CM-10339
  • (Notable) Fixed a bug that prevented proper migration of the Playback Audit Data to MongoDB if the Content manager network name included capital letters. This lead to errors in playback audit reporting. Customers who have already migrated their Playback Audit Module (PAM) database can correct this issue by re-running the PAM migrator. CM-10353

This can be mitigated by using the mmos.ini setting DSHOWRENDER_FFMPEGStrictStandardCompliance=0, which relaxes the "compliance strictness." Setting this to 1 will re-enable the strict setting.  PD-6759
  • Fixed an issue where a WebClip could cause a ScalaScript-based text entry button to receive every keyboard key press event twicePD-6829
