TeamDrive 4.7.2 (Win/Mac/Linux & Android/iOS)

TeamDrive Client Release 4.7.2 Build 3014, is a stable release for all platforms which fixes one bug. It is important to update, to avoid sync problems.

In some cases users could not join/activate or enter a Space. In these cases the Space activation stopped and never finished.
In rare cases the synchronisation just stopped in existing Spaces.

Resolution recommendation:
Users who discover such problem should perform a full restore of that Space after they updated to the latest release. Such rejoin from scratch may take a few hours and will correct previous errors.
Space Information (i) -> Restore -> Advanced -> rejoin from scratch

German translation (Deutsche Erläuterung)
In einigen Fällen wird ein Space Beitritt nicht fertig und bleibt einfach stehen.
In seltenen Fällen hört ein Space auf zu synchronisieren.

Nach Update auf die neuste TeamDrive Version sollte für jeden Space der diese Symptome zeigt, eine vollständige Wiederherstellung dieses Spaces durchgeführt werden.
Space Information (i) -> Wiederherstellen -> Erweitert -> vollständige Wiederherstellung

New Build for Window available: Version 4.7.2 Build 3031
Fixes a Bug when interacting with the Outlook AddIn
Resolves the error " Interner Fehler: Fehler beim Deserialisieren des Objekts "vom Typ TDOutlookAddIn.TDClient+File[]". Unerwartetes Zeichen 's'., "

New in 4.7.1.

- Local Encryption for TeamDrive Clients, configurable for Account Admins (Managers)
(This feature requires an additional security layer for each user named "SuperPin")

- SuperPin, an additional long password for each user which is needed for the local encryption. If that feature is used, a password reset requires the SuperPin! TeamDrive employee can no longer issue a password reset (no more temporary passwords possible)

- Space Level Security settings
The security requirements are an extension to the existing "Web Access Allowed" security setting for a space. The new settings are "Local Encryption", "Application Protection" and "Two Factor Authentication".

- Introducing unique file URL´s to be shared among Space members
(these URL´s will support our upcoming MS Teams Plugin)

- SD-Card Support on Android
Handle moving data directory to external SD card on Android

64 Bit Android application (added 32/64 bit multi-arch support for Android)

MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) no longer supported. Due to technical requirements the new release cannot run on HighSierra. These customers may continue to use Release 4.6.11 as the last build which supports MacOS 10.13. Though we can not guarantee backward compatibility for new features, used in Spaces, to be supported by outdated software releases. General compatibility issues are not known.

Attention: On MacOS the virtual file system driver "Fuse for MacOS" need to be installed manually due to licensing issues.

Release 4.6.8 is stable release with many impromements and additions.

Reninder: most new Space features require that all Space members upgrade to the latest release . A popup warning dialog will remind you, in case you try to use one of these features. If your members of that Space cannot update, you should not use such feature. Your Space member with an older TeamDrive version will receive a message "Client update required" and that Space will not longer sync for this user.

Attention: Installation on MacOS Catalina requires to open the installer file via the "open" dialog. The notarization process with Apple is not finished, therefore the installer is blocked in case you just use the mouse. We are working with Apple to resolve this issue. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2737

Enhancements and Improvements
- Operations which are not relevant for other Team members will not sync any more (Ghost Folders)
