Build: 4.4.7038
Status: Pre-Release (Release Candidate)


  • reordered msi and exe options for exe to be first choice now because it's signed
  • fixed chrome/firefox exe to not prompt nearly as much on run (this got broken because of our new certificate and timestamping)
  • fixed the exe unattended windows installer to be signed validly (before it was signed, but windows didn't like it)
  • fixed java unattended to replace environment variables on session creation
  • fixed at least some permutations of web start launch errors (still investigating however)
  • fixed OTHEROR and OTHERAND session groups to work when OTHER groups contain variables (which is nearly always the case)
  • fixed so creating a session always clears the search box on the host page so that the session will be visible (and joinable if Join Now is selected)
  • fixed issue with chrome 36 displaying modal dialogs because of non-integral pixel values
  • fixed issue with windows auth where we got empty group name and caused error
  • fixed so brackets and the like work in the host page search box
  • fixed an osx client crash


This was a lot of stuff to introduce between release candidates, so the stable release may be a little ways off. Most of this is very high-value.
