On a Filr site where Guest access is enabled and an unauthenticated user clicks on an entry permalink (read more about Filr permalinks here), the user is re-directed to the Filr login page and the following error is thrown in a pop-up:

GetViewInfoCmd failed (com.google.gwt.user.client.rpc.StatusCodeException): 500 Internal Server Error

The call failed on the server; see server log for details


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 3.2 Update. With the fix in place, users following entry permalinks on a Guest enabled Filr site will no longer see the 500 Internal Server Error.
