General release comments:

•    For D-Book 9 MHEG/HbbTV co-existence conformance, all test cases that required an MHEG application to be displayed now have an HbbTV application signalled on the same service.
•    There are new tests for the SI test suite - adult genre signalling, HbbTV on time-exclusive services, PCR PID changes, and ignoring the connection requirement descriptor for HbbTV-only devices.
•    There are new tests for the Linear Services test suite - accessing components from another service via HbbTV, and simultaneous display of HbbTV and subtitles (including re-scaling).
•    There are new tests for the MHEG test suite - HbbTV launch from MHEG, and signalling an empty carousel.
•    There is a new test for the DTR test suite - disabling trailer booking when an HbbTV application with green button is active.
•    These updates are available to all existing fully supported licence holders.
•    These test suites are being used for conformance testing as of 01/07/2017.
•    The previous releases have an end of life date of 01/10/2017.
•    Full release notes can be downloaded from the FTP or viewed via the Squish milestone.
•    The 24 hour network change test streams are not hosted on the FTP due to their size. If you require them, please make an enquiry at the email address below.

Please find full information about the changes in the release notes, accessible via the FTP or the Squish milestone. A new addition to these updates is that the release notes now include the test vectors that have changed since the previous release.

If you wish to license any of the test suites, please contact Ewa - customerservices@dtg.org.uk.
