(10/15/21): Leostream Platform 9.1 Release Notes

The ability to upload third-party content has been removed from the > System > Maintenance page, to address concerns raise by CVE-2021-41550 and CVE-2021-41551. Users can no longer use the Connection Broker Administrator Web interface to upload ZIPfiles, PL-files, or any other files with the exception of custom logos and favicons, into the Connection Broker /home/leo/app/tpc directory, to prevent bad actors from uploading malicious scripts into a Leostream environment. Leostream recommends updating to Connection Broker 9.1 for any customers who have exposed their Connection Broker Administrator Web Interface to the internet.

Connection Broker 9.1 Features:

  • Leostream RESTful API – This initial release of the Leostream RESTful API supports creating, editing, and deleting pools and policies, as well as creating users and listing centers. Please contact support@leostream.com for more information and documentation.
  • Connection Broker CLI – With a focus on scripting Leostream installations, the Connection Broker CLI includes a new option for switching databases or updating database credentials, including switching to a new external database. See Chapter 3 in the Leostream Connection Broker Application Guide for more information.
  • Improved Policy Form – The Create/Edit Policy form has been redesigned with a new tabbed design to improve the usability for deployments that include a large number of pools in their policies. See Chapter 12 in the Leostream Connection Broker Application Guide for information on how to use the new form.
  • Leostream Dashboard – This initial release of the Leostream Dashboard focuses on displaying information about the number of connected and logged in users, and graphs statistics related to the status of desktops in pools, such as the number of desktops that are assigned, running, etc. See “Using the Pool Statistics Dashboard” in Chapter 16 of the Connection Broker Administrator’s Guide for more information.
  • Storing User Assignments – The information used to generate the User Assignment Report can now be stored to the Connection Broker database. See “Storing User Assignment History” in the Connection Broker Administrator’s Guide for more information. 
  • Nutanix AHV Integration – Nutanix AHV can now be added as a center in Leostream, adding native integration for Nutanix AHV environments that require desktop provisioning, power control, assignments, and connections in Leostream environments. See the Leostream Quick Start Guide for Nutanix AHV for more information The OS Version filter on the > Resources > Desktops now allows you to filter based on specific versions
  • DCV Enhancement – When used with the latest Leostream Agents, DCV session handling has been changed to support usernames with special characters. Please see the Leostream Guide for Using Display Protocols for information on updating protocol plans to support this new functionality.
  • Locations – You can now create locations by matching IP addresses in a client’s HTTP XForwarded-For header, including matches based on a CIDR notation. See “Using Subnet Masks (CIDR) to Create Locations” in the Connection Broker Administrator’s Guide for more information.
  • Scyld Cloud Workstation Support – Scyld Cloud Workstation has been expanded to include session monitoring for Windows and Linux, as well as client-based connections using Leostream Connect.
