    New Application Manager 17.8 - Launching Today (August 17th)

    Avid will release a new Application Manager v17.8.  This public facing version will roll-up the changes from Application Manager v17.6 and v17.7 as well as add some additional security improvements.  Customers who have the “Auto-Update” feature enabled in AppMan will get the new version installed automatically.

    Readme availabe here 

    Fixes include:
    1.  Both signing in and signing out are significantly faster due to the different mechanisms used for Login to the Avid Everywhere Platform.   Please Note: General “Synchronization” time is still an on-going effort and is being addressed.

    2. Additional security improvements have been included with this release of Application Manager. 

    Additional bugs addressed:
    1.  AMPT-5773. In some instances, Application Manager might have installed MS C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) software even if it was already installed.

    2.  AMPT-5724. In some cases, Application Manager was not properly restored after waking your system from sleeping mode.

    3.  AMPT-5718. (Mac) Application Manager CPU usage was high.

    4.  AMPT-5633. Application Manager might have logged you out when in offline mode. You should now be able to run the application when you are offline instead of receiving a “Problem logging into account” error.
