Managing Cloud releasesLast updated January 16, 2019
These release notes provide you with information about the latest upgrade to the StarLeaf Cloud, Portal, and endpoints. This is a feature release and is effective from April 2018.
All upgrades take place outside of normal office hours for all regions. Endpoints automatically restart and reconnect to the Cloud after the upgrade.
StarLeaf operates a system of rolling upgrades across our data centers, which are distributed globally. New features may be enabled separately.
Cloud 7.1 provides the following new features:
GT Mini audio-in
|For all new GT Mini 3330 and GT 3351 room systems, HDMI audio-in (via the DVi-I connector) is enabled by default|
Click-to-Call user experience
|For users making browser-based calls, Cloud 7.1 provides increased resilience to suboptimal network conditions with improvements to the mechanism by which Click-to-Call responds dynamically to fluctuations in bandwidth availability|
Portal reseller experience
|The Customer page in the Portal is now paginated which will speed up loading time for this page for resellers with many customers|
|Disable user activation emails||When users are added to the Cloud either through the Portal or through an integration such as Okta, the Cloud sends the user an ‘account activation’ email. From Cloud 7.1, you can elect to disable the sending of this email and instead inform your users in whatever way you choose. To disable the sending of activation emails, contact StarLeaf Support|
|StarLeaf on desktop and mobile|
|Guest experience||Guests who use StarLeaf on the desktop or on mobile will automatically have a chat or call history with the person who invited them|
|There are improvements to the ordering of search results within the app|
