It’s time for a new desktop client alpha release
It features nice improvements on the VFS side, especially on Windows.
We’ve also rewritten the file discovery code, which parallelizes between directories and should therefore greatly improve performance.
Client-side support for Shibboleth authentication was removed as OAuth2 (via external web browser) is the way to go.
As usual with an alpha release, be cautious when using it. We don’t know of any obvious bugs but we cannot test every scenario. There is also the ‘testpilotcloud’ branded client available which uses a different configuration directory and can therefore be used to test things separately.
Please report your findings!
