Bug fixes and improvements effective in StarLeaf Cloud 8.2:

|16782||In previous releases, point-to-point calls between a StarLeaf endpoint and a Skype for Business registered Polycom Trio failed when UDP was blocked. Cloud 8.2 fixes this issue|
|17858||Call Detail Records now correctly show call types REFER and REFERRED in calls to Skype for Business|
|18284||Previously, in a call from a StarLeaf user to a Skype for Business user, if the StarLeaf user dialed the Skype for Business user and included uppercase letters in the dialed URI, subsequent screen share into the call could fail. Cloud 8.2 fixes this issue|
|18614||Click-to-Call (WebRTC) is not supported on Safari from version 11.2 onwards. This is due to changes in Safari that mean the browser no longer supports plugins|

|12040||Using Click-to-Call in the Safari browser on OSX sometimes results in difficulties receiving shared content and dropped calls when the Safari tab is minimized for longer than 10 seconds. This is due to the AppNap feature on OSX that puts background applications to sleep if they are not in the foreground|
|12067||In some circumstances, when a Skype for Business client attempts to add video or content into a StarLeaf conference with no other video participants there can be unexpected call failure|
