ID Number Description


Fixed the issue where Edge Client installation did not follow best practices.
1041137-2 Upgraded the MSXML library to MSXML version 6.0. Refer to the link for changes related to the MSXML 6.0.
1066993-1 When the VPN connection was established, Edge Client displayed the connection duration instead of the session expiration time. This issue is fixed, and now the Edge Client displays the expected session expiration time for the user to determine how long the session remains active.
1070705-1 Previously, the Edge client failed to display the maximum session timeout message when the VPN session expired. This issue is fixed, and now the Edge Client displays the "Your session is about to reach maximum session timeout. You will be logged out in about one minute." notification when the VPN connection reaches the maximum session timeout value.
1071989-1 Previously, on macOS Monterey, the Edge Client UI continued to show the 'Connecting' status, even when the VPN connection was established. This issue is fixed, and now the Edge Client user interface displays the correct VPN status.
1089357-2 Fixed the OpenSSL CVE-2022-0778.
