Version 5.70.18 

These release notes pertain to Kaltura MediaSpace (KMS) and Kaltura Application Framework (KAF) version 5.70.18, released on March 12, 2018. 

What's New for KMS

  • Multi-Authentication - KMS provides support for the following types of authentication methods: LDAP, SAML, SSO Gateway, and Kaltura authentication. Until now, only one type of authentication method was supported, and combinations of the different types of authentication methods were not available. KMS is now able to support multiple types and combinations of authentication methods and allow users to login through different authentication methods. A common use case for example, is for external users, who do not have the same access as internal users. With this new feature, external users may login with LDAP credentials, and internal users with SAML credentials. Read more about it in the article Authenticating Using Multiple Authentication Providers to Access Kaltura MediaSpace see the  Kaltura MediaSpace Setup Guide for setup instructions.. (1)

Version 5.62.18

These release notes pertain to Kaltura MediaSpace (KMS) version 5.62.18, released on August 1, 2017. 

What's New for both KMS and KAF:

  • My History and Resume Playback – This new feature will take you to where you left off the last time you watched a video, and let you continue from the same place, from every device.
    For information on how to use this feature, see the Kaltura My History and Resume Playback article. This feature is enabled and configured in the History module by your admin. Admins can refer the Kaltura History Module - Administrator's Guide for instructions on how to setup and configure this feature. (1)
  • New UI - The newly released theme (v2 UI) just keeps getting better and better. We made some adjustments to whitespaces to make it look just right. We've moved a few icon's positions and aligned some of the text to make the new theme shine.(2)

What's New in KMS:

  • My History Page – If you were wondering what you watched last, and where is that video you started watching a week ago, the new 'My History' page is now available in KMS.
    The History module allows end users to reach the “My History” page in KMS and watch their viewing history. (1)
  • Recently Watched and Continue Watching Playlists – New on the Home page, 2 playlists that can be turned on to show each user the recent videos they watched (taken from the My History page), or what the user started watching and might want to continue watching. (1)
    Enable these 2 playlists from the History Module, and then set them on the Home Module. 
  • SAML Admin Improvements – With the changes introduced last release to LDAP and SAML in KMS, we are adding some additional items for the SAML module in the effort of introducing self-serve authentication setup capabilities. One of the new changes, is the new SAML AuthNAdapter in the AUTH module. We also added a log map to allow troubelshooting the login after setup.(3)
    See the Kaltura MediaSpace™ SAML Integration Guide Troubleshooting section for additional information.
