When you launch version 5.3.1 for the first time, it may take a little longer for the server to fully start up. During the startup process, you will see the message "No license information / CS-Server starting up". Please wait until GMG ColorServer has completed all the necessary changes in the background and is ready for operation. The message will then disappear automatically.
Under macOS 12.4, you cannot perform any measurements with the measurement device X-Rite i1iO at the present time. The measurement device is not recognized and the error message "Measurement device X-Rite i1iO is not connected." is shown. The manufacturer is already working on a new driver solution.
Other measurement devices and versions of macOS as well as Windows systems are not affected by this limitation.
Some improvements required changes in the test chart design. If you want to re-measure already existing test charts from older GMG ColorServer versions, you have to recreate them in GMG SmartProfiler before. This limitation only applies to new measurements. If you have exported measurement data in the past, you can continue to import them and use them as usual without having to reprint the matching test chart first.
