Introduction

These release notes provide you with information about the latest upgrade to StarLeaf GTm. This is a feature release and is effective from November 2017.

Version 1.2.11 does not support GTm 5220. If you have a GTm 5220, contact StarLeaf technical support to upgrade to GTm 5250.

You need to enable Maestro access on the endpoint through the web interface and re-configure the appropriate settings, including Skype credentials and applied certificates.

Upgrading the GTm

To upgrade the GTm:

New features

New features in StarLeaf GTm version 1.2.11:

Feature Description
WiFi settings

Maestro now has an additional tab for the control of WiFi settings:

This allows you to enable or disable WiFi on a GTm, choose a WiFi channel, and allocate a Miracast name (the name that appears in the list of content receivers)

Camera standby is decoupled from screen standby Camera standby is now separate from screen standby such that you can locally share content from a PC or other source without causing the camera to come out of standby
Unlock password improvements

Maestro provides an ‘unlock password’ that unlocks the web user interface for a GTm. GTm version 1.2.11 introduces an automatically generated and secure ‘unlock password’ every time a GTm is unpaired from Maestro:

VbSS disable support

You can now disable Video-based Screen Sharing (VbSS) through Maestro. Disabling VbSS will cause the GTm to use RDP for sharing content. To disable VbSS, in Maestro go to Meeting Rooms and select a room to manage. Choose Skype > Advanced settings > Disable video-based screen sharing

Issues resolved
