Could you explain more on these items?
When a new VC host is added to the plugin configuration, the plugin registers itself with the VC instance as an extension. In some cases it is necessary for this registration to be manipulated manually. We added new scripting API methods and workflows, to allow registration and deregistration of the plugin, as well as listing the currently registered extensions on a given VC instance.
Regarding the fixes:
1. Previously it was possible for an VC session to remain open, even if it was no longer needed. The fix corrects reference counting of open VC sessions.
2. After making changes to the plugin's configuration through workflows (e.g. adding/removing/updating a VC host), in some cases VCO clients were not notified of the changes. The fix ensures that clients are always notified of configuration changes.
3. When an open VC session was detected as unusable (e.g. after a temporary hostname resolution error), it was possible that the session was not recovered, even after the detected error condition disappeared. We have addressed such situations.
