Thinkbox Software has announced the release of Deadline 6.0, the latest version of the company’s popular render farm management solution for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX-based render farms. Built with Digia’s Qt development framework and a MongoDB database, Deadline 6.0 facilitates identical performance, scalability, and flexibility across all platforms.
Key new features include a new database backend, redesigned user interface, graphic data representation, simplified user group management, Slave log streaming, scripting improvements, flexible environment control, streamlined archiving system and Amazon EC2 Cloud support.
“When we update our tools, we look to incorporate features that take workflows to the next level and really pay attention to feedback from our customers,” says Thinkbox founder Chris Bond. “Deadline 6.0 is a massive release and the result of a tremendous effort to improve an already powerful rendering tool. The new architecture is designed to be the platform of tomorrow – the foundation for scalability, performance and usability – and the phenomenal response we’ve received from our beta customers indicates we are right on track.”
