The update to this version is highly recommended for all users of DRACOON for Windows/Mac.
The following problems have been fixed in version 4.8.1 of DRACOON for Windows/Mac:
These problems only occurred in specific cases, e.g. under certain exceptional circumstances. The vast majority of users were not affected.
- DRACOON for Windows (version 4.8 only) quit unexpectedly after startup if a specific drive letter was set for a connection.
- Opening Office documents could be unexpectedly slow in DRACOON for Windows/Mac (version 4.8 only).
- The file locking mechanism of Word and Excel did not work under DRACOON for Mac under certain circumstances.
- If an invalid server URL was specified for the drive connection in DRACOON for Windows, DRACOON for Windows quit unexpectedly.
- After using the "Open with DRACOON App" command in the DRACOON Web App, a message might appear that the user account was temporarily locked due to a failed login. The problem could occur only with local DRACOON user accounts (not when authenticating via Active Directory or OpenID Connect).
- After using the "Open with DRACOON App" command in the DRACOON Web App, Active Directory was always preset as authentication method in the new connection dialog if a drive connection did not exist yet.
