Hi @michaelstingl,
I just installed suggested verion and will let you know how it works.
Thanks anyway!

H @michaelstingl!
Unfortunately mac’s desktop client still asks for password but less frequently than before.
Is ther anything more I can do about it? We have several mac users and all strongly complains about it including myself.

Hello again!
Any other suggestions to solve this issue?
I’ve installed latest stable release and problem still occurs - is there anything I can do about it?
