Public beta of desktop client v1.7.0

author David Wibergh, about Products & features

We test our desktop client releases extensively across a wide variety of operating systems prior to releasing anything publicly. That has also been the case for v1.7.0 - but it contains several major underlying changes, and we therefore want to release it as a beta first before releasing it as an online update to everyone.

The beta period will last between 2-6 weeks and depending on the results, we might release subsequent versions but also prolong or shorten the beta period.
