SoftwareCentral 24R2.2 is now available for download.

Version 24R2.1 has been very well received and in just 2 weeks it is has been implemented across more than 50 of our clients.
We have identified some issues that we are addressing in this latest release.
We hope you will warmly welcome version 22R2.2 and hopefully, you won't see a 22R2.3 ;)

The SoftwareCentral team wishes you a wonderful summer and looks forward to introducing many exciting new features this fall.

Intune Apps
In 24R2.1 we updated the Microsoft SDK. This unfortunately resulted in a few problems, that now has been resolved.
• Intune application templates got their Windows Architectures shifted. We cannot fix this issue, as we cannot distinguish which templates has been manually update.
  So please be aware that Intune application templates created prior to 24R2, will have to be manually updated with the correct Windows Architectures after you update to 24R2 or above.
• Applications created in 24R2.1 may have gotten wrong operators for their detection methods. This has now been fixed in this release.
  We apologise for the inconvenience, as you will have to manually update the affected applications.
  The affected applications are applications created or updated with:
    • Detection methods with an operator.
    • Additional application requirement rules with an operator.
  Applications that have been updated, but where the detection methods and additional requirements were not changed is not affected.

Robopack
• We have listened to your feedback and improved Robopack and squashed some bugs.

26-02-2024 - SoftwareCentral 24R1.1


SoftwareCentral 24R1.1 is now available for download.

• Please contact support@softwarecentral.com for a free and simple trial (setup time 10 minutes).

Intune only
Intune only installations no longer requires that the web server is a member of a domain.
All functionality like authentication, security roles and approval flows can now run on Microsoft Entra ID.

Intune Dashboards
Based on customer feedback, we have greatly optimized the performance of our Intune Dashboard.

Imporant information
In our effort to add support for the latest technologies, we have had to update some old .NET Framework libraries to their newer .NET Core counterparts.
This means that connections to databases are now actively enforced as encrypted. Don’t worry, connections were also encrypted before if your database was configured to it and had the proper certificates installed.
When you install this version of SoftwareCentral, the installer will let you know if the SSL certificate is missing on your SQL server or if something else is wrong to prevent encryption.
You will get the option to ignore this and continue or you can update the security on your database.
This will happen before the installation begins, so you can take action without interrupting your environment.

Also note that SQL logins are no longer considered safe, as this exposes the password in the connection string.
If you are using SQL login, it will be removed by the installer. If you want to keep using the SQL login, you must add this manually to the ConnectionString.xml file after the update.
The recommended authentication method for SQL databases is now Windows Authentication. We are working on introducing Microsoft Entra password authentication in a later update.

If you are using our “Untrusted domain”-solution and have a SoftwareCentral server in multiple domains without trust, but connected to the same database, then please contact us at support@softwarecentral.com before you install this update.

Your users can use single sign-on (SSO) between SoftwareCentral and your other OAuth-enabled applications.
