Yandex SS Plugin 1.2.0 Released

Yandex Speech Synthesis (SS) Plugin 1.2.0 to the UniMRCP Server (UMS) has been released.

The plugin is based on the following components:

  • UniMRCP Server 1.6.0
  • Yandex SpeechKit Text to Speech API
  • Libevent 2.1.9
  • Rapidjson 1.1.0

The binaries are currently available for the following Linux distributions:

  • Red Hat / CentOS 7 (unimrcp-yandex-ss-1.6.2-1.el7.x86_64.rpm)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (unimrcp-yandex-ss_1.6.2-xenial_amd64.deb)
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (unimrcp-yandex-ss_1.6.2-bionic_amd64.deb)

This release adds support for HTTP proxy, introduces binaries for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and fixes format of URL-encoded characters.

The detailed list of changes introduced in this release follows.
New Features
  • Added support for HTTP proxy.
Fixed Problems
  • Fixed URL-encoded characters to be preceded with '%' instead of '\x'. While both options are currently accepted by Yandex Text-to-Speech API, everyone is encouraged to upgrade as Yandex is going to drop support only the new behavior.
  • When license server is in use, fixed processing of a connection hang-up event occurred when a license refresh request is being sent to the license server. This event could result in a few seconds-long outage of the service.
Configuration Parameters
  • Added a new attribute 'http-proxy' to the element 'synth-settings'.
  • Updated the Usage Guide to reflect the changes introduced in this release.
  • Patched the Libevent library to properly support communication via HTTP proxy. The resulted package is based on 2.1.8 and released as 2.1.9.
