Major Release 

Release Date: June 26, 2020

Major Features:


● Smart Card Proxy Authentication - In addition to Basic/Kerberos/NTLM authentication, Windows Client now supports smart card (e.g: PIV/CAC) client certificate proxy authentication. More information can be found here.
● Dynamic Monitor Change via session resume - when monitor arrangement and resolution changes as the user performs monitor actions such as plugging out of or into a docking station, monitor / screen settings (such as monitor arrangement & screen resolution) are properly updated. This is accomplished via session disconnect and resume and can be enabled by setting the SupportMonitorDisplayChange registry entry. More information can be found here.



Improvements:


● Support for adding registry settings to installer command-line parameters - it is now possible to specify default Windows Client registry settings when using msiexec for installation. More information can be found here.
● Session log file enhancements - Session log files are no longer overwritten on a per session basis. Two options are now available:


1) Rolling per session basis (default: 10 rolling sessions) via the SessionLogHistory registry value.
 2) With date and time stamps (default: 7 days) via the SessionLogHistoryDay registry value.


○ WIth this enhancement, the SessionLogAppendMode registry value is deprecated.
○ More information can be found here.


● Updated OpenSSL - WIndows Client now uses OpenSSL version 1.1.1g.
● Updated various third party libraries.
