Release 19.4

New Features#

Support for .NET 4.8
The server stack has been upgraded with this release to use .NET 4.8 ; this is a breaking change to the prerequisites.

Keyboard Shortcuts in MindLink Anywhere For improved accessibility MindLink Anywhere now features added basic keyboard shortcuts to manage the cursor focus - to focus the message input box and the history and dock search bars.
These shortcuts are shown to users on initial login on the home screen, the home screen can also be viewed by clicking the MindLink Logo.

Support for Multiple Persistent Chat Pools
We have changed our backend PChat server integration to support more than one persistent chat pool in the same session.
Since Lync 2013, organisations can deploy more than one PChat Server pool within their topology. This is typically done for compliance reasons, or to optimize geolocation performance.
Version 19.4 features first-class support for topologies with multiple pChat pools. When a user logs in, they will be able to join and participate in chat rooms across all pools in the topology.

QueryString parameter to bypass SSO logon page
On first log on, users are shown a logon page where the user can select their presence state, enabled modalities, etc. This is shown even when using "SSO" - this is the only chance the user has to configure these sorts of things.
However, it does mean that initial sign-on is not a true "SSO" experience. 19.4 features a new option allowing this to be bypassed with the default settings - the administrator will set this attribute in the URL.


Breaking changes#

The .NET version on the MindLink server needs to be upgraded to .NET 4.8 for the correct functioning of any MindLink products.
