VD-10404 Vidyo corrected a bug so that the VidyoDesktop no longer crashes om MAC OS when making or answering a video call.
VD-10406 Vidyo resolved an issue on MacOS 10.14 Mojave so that now when you disable the microphone before a call; VidyoDesktop will now correctly display the microphone as disabled. Important Note: VidyoDesktop is not completely optimized for MacOS Mojave and hence it is not listed in the Compatibility Guide. It can work but under the conditions listed in VD-10405 (see below).
VD-10405 Even though a warning message displays upon install of VidyoDesktop; the application will still install correctly.  The warning message will display "is not optimized for your Mac; this app will not work with future versions of macOS....". Apple had previosly announced MacOS 10.14 Mojave will be the last version to support legacy 32-bit applications. Important Note: Vidyo will not upgrade to the 64 bit release; however, will be happy to help you transition to our latest and greatest offering: VidyoConnect (see the "What's New" section above for more details).
VD-10284 Vidyo corrected a bug so that the VidyoDesktop 3.6.9 no longer crashes under MacOS Sierra and Capitan if the Share feature is undocked and left open while making a new call, or when content is shared during full screen mode.

VidyoDesktop for Windows and Mac: About Version 3.6.15

What's New in this Release

  • Resolved Issue
    • This release fixes an issue where, on Mac platforms, VidyoDesktop could not be upgraded from within the VidyoDesktop client application when the client was offered the upgrade from the connected portal:
      • The source of the issue was a faulty mechanism by which the certificate checking of the new release was done by the currently installed VidyoDesktop release. This is a type of issue that can only be solved in the forward direction. Hence, with this fix and after successfully installing VidyoDesktop version 3.6.15, if the client application is ever offered a newer version in the future (for example, version 3.6.16, 3.6.17, etc.), the upgrade will check the proper parameters and should successfully allow the upgrade to occur.

VidyoDesktop for Windows and Mac: About Anchor Version 3.6.5 (011)

What’s New in This Release

IMPORTANT CHANGE: Application Sharing No Longer Available on Windows 8 and Later

  • On Windows 8 and later, in certain scenarios when a user shares an application, other applications running on that user’s machine may also be shared into the conference. Due to this privacy concern, we have limited sharing on Windows 8 and later to sharing the full display only. On Windows versions earlier than Windows 8 and on Mac OS X, this issue does not exist, therefore application sharing is still available.

Security Enhancement

  • For added security, VidyoDesktop now works with VidyoPortals™ set to support TLS 1.2 only

Fixed Issues

  • The title of the Configuration and Status window now correctly displays as “Konfiguration und status” instead of “Konfiguration und staat” when German is selected as the system language.
