Previous Releases

August 7, 2019 Version 4.1.5040.0807

Change to Existing Features

  • Upgraded Virtual Machine Based Operating System
    Virtual Room Connector now runs on an upgraded operating system. Because the virtual machine operating system has been updated, we recommend redeploying the virtual machine with the latest image. 

New and Enhanced Features 

  • Updated Web Console for VRC Management
    The Virtual Room Connector web console has been updated for improved usability. Admins can now add users to manage VRC processes and start or stop processes from the web console. 
  • Certificate Management
    Virtual Room Connector now allows the certificate for the virtual machine to be changed through the web console.

Resolved Issues

  • Minor Bug Fixes

July 14, 2019 Version 4.1.5037.0713

New and Enhanced Features

  • Improved Support for the 3rd Party Encryption Web Setting
    While the Zoom cloud now requires encryption, VRC endpoints follow the web setting Require Encryption for 3rd Party Endpoints (H.323/SIP), which was previously named End-to-End Encryption. When turned On, encryption will be required for any device connecting to Zoom. When turned Off, 3rd party devices (H323/SIP) can connect to Zoom without encryption but the Zoom Client and Zoom Rooms will still leverage encryption.

    SIP and H.323 devices joining via Virtual Room Connector can now join breakout rooms.
