Release 20.5

New Features:

Chat room administration in MLA
In 20.5 a group management interface has been integrated into the MindLink Client. After enabling the admin client, currently through a configuration key on the Advanced tab, users will be shown an option in their profile menu to open the Group Management window.

Users will be shown a list of all groups they manage. This is defined by the underlying Category infrastructure of your skype Environment. A user must be a member of the "Creators" permission group of a category to manage the rooms within the category.

A user can create a new chat room or manage existing ones, as per the rooms and categories they are permitted to manage. The user can define the Room Name, Description, Category, Privacy, Members and Managers.

Functionality for setting a room to Auditorium and Disabling a room is included with 20.5.1, the latest release of MindLink Anywhere.

Dark Mode Theme Preference
A new client preference has been added to 20.5 which provides theme options for users. Within the settings options, under 'General > Theme options' users can pick between Dark or Light mode which will alter the colouration of the interface.

Classification System Improvements
With the release of 20.5 we've introduced additional improvements to the classification system, including better error reporting and handling.
