The Netsweeper Client Filter 10.40 EA is now available. This release updates a lot of shared libraries to the latest release along with adding some new functionality for Windows to watch the registry keys for changes. Customers running the 10.x Client on Windows, MacOS, Chrome, iOS or Android should consider upgrading to the 10.40 EA release.
Netsweeper will be moving to the Chrome Client Filter v3 manifest over the next few Sprint cycles. Google has extended the V2 Manifest for enterprise policies until January 2024 due to a lot of the changes and problems many developers have been running into. We are committed to making sure the new V3 manifest is available before customers can no longer use the V2 manifest version. More information from Google can be found here, https://developer.chrome.com/blog/more-mv2-transition/
If you have any questions or concerns about planning an upgrade to this release, please contact Netsweeper Technical Support (firstname.lastname@example.org).
