Dan here again from the Desktop team. The latest version of the Desktop client (1.1.51) is rolling out now and contains a lot of changes, improvements and fixes. Here’s a short highlight of some of the changes you may notice in the new version.
One additional setting that I've seen some feedback on but unfortunately didn't make it in time for this release was the ability to change proxy settings. This should be ready for 1.1.52.As always, please do ensure you’re fully updated and are running the latest version. We again thank you for the feedback provided.
