Hey Guys,Click here to review our latest release notes.
I have also copied them below for reference as well:
The VSA 18.104.22.168 release includes the enhancements and fixes described in the topics below. For minimum system and agent requirements, see these topics in the Kaseya R95 System Requirements Guide: Kaseya Server Minimum Requirements & Configuration and Agent Minimum Requirements.
Consistent with Apple's Product Support Policy and End of Product Update dates, Kaseya VSA no longer supports the following products as of version 22.214.171.124:
As of version 126.96.36.199, Kaseya VSA no longer supports use of the Opera browser (applies to Windows and Apple OS X platforms)
Consistent with Microsoft’s Product Lifecycle Policy and End of Extended Support Dates, Kaseya VSA will no longer provide support for the following products on the dates indicated:
Note: Kaseya will continue to support Windows 7 through December 31, 2020. Microsoft end of support for Windows 7 is January 14, 2020.
The following VSA functionality will no longer be available or supported on the date indicated:
Software Management > Profiles > Scan and Analysis and Software Management > Profiles > Deployment - Software Management profiles have been enhanced to automatically schedule scans and deployments for offline assets. In past VSA releases, scans and deployments would skip any offline agents. With this enhancement, tasks for offline agents are queued and executed when the agent comes back online.You can opt to skip scan and deployment tasks for offline agents by checking the Skip if offline option when adding or editing profiles. If a scheduled scan or deployment task is executed to an offline agent and the Skip if offline option is checked, the task is skipped instead of being queued and executed once the agent is back online.
Event Id: <New Event ID>Event Name: Skip if Offline selected on <Deployment/Scan> actionMessage: Skip if offline was included in the scheduling of <machine id>Admin: <Admin which initiated the task>Event Date: <Date when the skip if offline option was selected>
Note: There is a known issue where the Mac agent cannot be installed silently without embedded credentials. To continue using silent installs, do not modify any existing Mac deployment packages upon upgrading to 188.8.131.52. This issue will be resolved in an upcoming release.
When will this patch be applied to SaaS customers, and is there a way to see what patch level is running.
SaaS will be updated on 12/21/2019. Our SaaS will be on the latest version following our On-Premise GA release, in this case version .25
I'm sorry, but as many times as I have read this, I fail to see the part about Agent Procedures no longer requiring Flash.
I'm very confused about this: "As of version 184.108.40.206, Kaseya VSA no longer supports use of the Opera browser (applies to Windows and Apple OS X platforms)"
So you're not going to support the use of a browser that is based on Chromium and uses Blink, but you'll continue support the use of Google Chrome, which is a browser based on Chromium and uses Blink, and also includes a bunch of Google's BS that some people prefer not to use.
I prefer Firefox, but after finding that an idle Firefox tab sitting in the foreground with the VSA open uses 15-20% CPU for some reason and reporting it, I was told that I should just not use Firefox. Well I still use Firefox, but I also use Opera to access the VSA with the KAdmin account, and now I guess I'll have to find another solution for that because Kaseya is going to stop supporting the use of a browser that is the same as Chrome in every way that matters in a technical sense, and different from Chrome in ways that matter in a security and privacy sense.
Is there an actual technical reason for dropping Opera?
Our new agent procedure editor will be released in our next VSA patch. It will be worth the wait =)
Any word on 220.127.116.11? Its been a bit.....
I second that.
Please Oscar share with us an idea of when we are getting the new patch out even if it is bad news.
Oscar mentioned on discord that limited testing of .26 starts on SaaS tomorrow with rollout proceeding based on results there.
Delays are frustrating, but cudos to Kaseya for not releasing a build which has known issues. Less, higher quality releases is still preferable to more yet buggy builds, in my book.
I have to agree with Craig, maybe a brief word on the test here is possible, Oscar Romero ?
Looks like 18.104.22.168 is out and its a big one - where is the discussion thread? We will likely wait a week or two to deploy to see if there are any big issues.
SaaS is doing maintenance tomorrow morning so maybe we'll be getting it as part of that.
Notes are up and published. Thread is below:
