I’m pleased to announce that Dashboard v5.42.1 and Agent v9.5.3 (RC) are being released overnight, so that they will be available in advance of the working day tomorrow, Friday 21st of March.
This is a routine Service Release focused on systems performance, feature enhancements and bug fixes. It includes a security enhancement to the password policy, which for new passwords going forward requires a minimum of 8 characters, a mix of upper and lower case letters, and a number.
In addition, the self-service seed loading option for Managed Online Backup is now available from the Edit Device dialog screen, and there is an update to the Patch Management API to include the patch release date.
