When the client is trying to connect to a video stream, an animation is displayed in the video window (instead of blank screen).

When images are inserted into the presentation, the upload progress is now shown inside the image.

#189511: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Pixels are lost in slide view in 1:1 mode. [Defect fix] More


When viewing slides in 1:1 mode, there were pixels missing.

#190585: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Authenticate dialog fix [Defect fix] More


Authenticate dialog that is shown when you are trying to join the session that either has not yet started, or requires authentication to join was not working properly. It has been replaced by a more user-friendly dialog that allows different methods of re-authentication to try start /join the session.

#190586: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Simultaneous login fix [Defect fix] More


If an authenticated user joined the same session more than once at the same time, the behaviour was undefined. Now the older client gets disconnected.

#194656: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Sharing layout on low-resolution monitor [Defect fix] More


When a user with a low screen resolution was sharing content, the GUI became to big for the screen in sharing mode. This has been fixed by disabling other widgets to make more space in such case.

#194952: ISL Groop(Windows - All): File tool-tips [Defect fix] More


The tool-tips for files now show all the file information.

#198752: ISL Groop(Windows - All): File overwrite [Defect fix] More


When uploading a file with the same filename, it was sometimes possible to overwrite previous files without knowing. Defect was fixed so that now, every time your action would cause a file to be overwritten a dialog appears requiring your confirmation of the action.

#249716: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Missing sound chunks [Defect fix] More


Parts of sound were sometimes lost, resulting in poor audio quality. The defect has been fixed.

#203445: ISL Groop(Windows - All):Clear queued stream data when stream is killed [Defect fix] More


When stream data was being congested on the server, and the stream was stopped, the queued data was still being sent to the client causing even more network congestion. The defect was fixed so that now when stream is stopped all stream data is dropped by the servers.

#213130: ISL Groop(Windows - All):Podium video window visible in presentation layout with no podium holder [Defect fix] More


When in presentation layout the podium video window was shown even if nobody was on podium. This has been fixed, so that now the podium video window is not visible in this case.

#225556: ISL Groop(Windows - All): Audio mode switch [Defect fix] More


When switching from hands-free to push-to-talk audio mode, the guess speech filter was left enabling, causing problems with the sound. The filter now gets disabled when switching to push-to-talk, and enabled when switching to hands-free. There is also a notification about this.

The preferred audio mode was also not saved. It is now saved.
