Enhancements and Bug Fixes

  1. Resolved several Clever-related issues:
    1. Multi-selecting classes now combines the student lists correctly
    2. Enhance class list integration to now allow the displaying of a friendly student name (first, last name) when using classes based on login name
  2. Fixed a Report Server uninstall issue where the shortcuts in the control panel and Apps and Features was not being removed correctly
  3. Fixed an issue where multiple chat windows have been opened due to multiple alerts being sent
  4. The context menu when remote controlling a student is now disabled since the information in the Properties dialog for a given student is not actively updated while in the Remote Control session. The Properties information is updated after the session has ended.
  5. Fixed a customer-reported issue where Remote Log On failed due to time-out on slower machines. Added a registry key setting to allow administrators to change the default wait time so the Remote Log In does not time out.
  6. Fixed a customer-reported issue to provide a better user experience when using Channel 0 and there are more than 40 students. Now, if there are more than 40 students, the Teacher Console only display details view (no thumbnails) and the thumbnail view option is disabled.
  7. Fixed an issue where Keystroke Alerts were breaking when a student was loaded into a second class
  8. Fixed an issue in Keystroke Alerts where banned words were not displaying correctly
  9. Fixed an install issue where the Chrome extension option was not being read correctly from the registry settings
  10. Fixed an issue in the Tech Console where the Blank Screen icon was not enabled correctly
  11. Fixed an issue in the Tech Console and Teacher Console where the Remote Control button was not disabling correctly for students that are disconnected
  12. Fixed a customer-reported issue with Disable Keyboard and Mouse when using Remote Control
  13. Fixed a customer-reported issue where the LanSchool Student was conflicting with Solidworks 2019
  14. Fixed an issue where the Mac student could fail during a Remote Control session
  15. Fixed an issue where Student Diagnostics for macOS was not performing tests correctly
  16. Fixed multiple issues in dialogs and text where they did not display correctly in Dark Mode on macOS Mojave 10.14 and macOS Catalina 10.15
  17. Fixed an issue where the Mac student auto-update was not working correctly
  18. Fixed an issue where the Lite Student/Demo Student would not uninstall on macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Mojave 10.14, and macOS Catalina 10.15
  19. Fixed an issue in the Mac Teacher Console where a highlighted student displayed as disabled when right-clicking on an alert message
