Director 188.8.131.52 introduces the following new features:
> Support for the Director VA
In this release, the Director application and OS are bundled together as an installable package. This package can be used to upgrade your Director 510 appliance and to create a Director VA. A Director VA is a software-based Blue Coat Director that is installed on a supported bare metal server or installed as a virtual machine. For ease of migration, this release also provides you with the ability to migrate the configuration from your Director 510 appliance directly in to a new software-based Director.
> Support for Licensing
The Blue Coat Director now requires a valid license to manage devices.All Director VA installs, updates of the Director 510 appliance to v6.x, and upgrades from Director 510 appliance to a Director VA require you to download and install a license file to manage the ProxySG appliances in your network.
The Blue Coat Director does not ship with a pre-installed license; you must obtain a Try and Buy (TAB) license that is valid for 90 days or a production license, which is perpetual. Each licensed Blue Coat Director can manage up to 300 ProxySG appliances.
For more information on licensing, or to know Why do I need a license for the Director/ How do I get one?, refer to the Blue Coat Director Getting Started Guide.
> Support for More Authentication Mechanisms
> API Support for Pre-populating Smooth Streaming Content
Microsoft’s Smooth Streaming is a Web-based media format that uses standard HTTP. Instead of performing full file downloads, smooth streaming technology delivers a series of MPEG-4 (MP4) fragments, that can be easily cached. The Director API support for smooth streams accelerates content delivery and provides a better user experience in your network.
> Support for Using the IPv6 Address Scheme on the Blue Coat Director
To help you transition into the IPv6 address space, the Blue Coat Director operates both in a network where IPv4 and IPv6 addresses co-exist and in an exclusively IPv6 environment.
