    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
    http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/attach/Avid_Application_Manager_Read_me_17.8.pdf

    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.

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

    On the App Man download page, the last available version that can be downloaded is 17.5, and the page was last updated on May 25th.

    I have the App Man dissabled on my system, and only run it just before installing a new version. As soon as the install is completed App Man gets banned from my system until the next available download needs to be verifiyed.

    .App Man 17.7 lists that I have the latest version installed - no mention of 17.8

    It would help if Avid placed the latest version on the download page for users.
