Scripting: Script-Rules added
You might now define so called script rules for each script. These rules are evaluated after the regular script processing too place to schedule new tracks.
It allows you to 'filter' out certain scheduled tracks based on different conditions.
If a rule matches the defined conditions a related action is carried out on the current track (resp. current script entry).
The following objects are used to validate a script rule:

1. Previous Track:
This is the last (previous) track being scheduled.
Use the 'Previous Track Condition' filter to define a condition which must be fullfilled in order to match the rule.
E.g. you might define, that the previous track must have a media entry type 'Jingle'.

2. Current Script Entry (Next Track):
This relates to the script entry which is about to be scheduled and to which the action would apply.
Use the 'Next Track Condition' filter to define a condition which must be fullfilled in order to match the rule. And use the 'Applies To' filter to further specify an optional type of entry which must match.
E.g. you might define, that the next track should have any media entry type but 'Music' AND that it should only apply to script entries of the type 'Automatic Jingle' or 'Automatic Advertising'.

Action:
This defines the action to carry out on the 'Current Script Entry (Next Track)'. You might actually supress it or defer it.
Note: The action is performed on the next track (resp.current script entry) being validated!

Supress: The current script entry (next track) is supressed, which means it is removed from the result and is therefore not scheduled.

Defer: The current script entry (next track) is deferred, which means it is still considered for scheduling, but at a later time.
Any deferred script entries are validated again with the next processing step (next script-line) and might be inserted once they pass the rules.

Note: Script-Rules are only available in the Professional or Enterprise Edition!

In addition the Advert Manager and the Meta Data Editor now also contains direct help icons (click on the '?') in the main title bar of almost all dialogs to better explain all options and settings.
