Important Note

Connection Broker 2023.2 introduces the new Leostream Web Client. If required, you can revert to the legacy web client by deselecting the Use New Client option in the Web Browser Configuration section of the Connection Broker > System > Settings page. 

Leostream will continue to support the legacy web client until December 31, 2024. While supported, Leostream will provide any required configuration support and issue resolutions for the legacy web client. However, new functionality features will be implemented for the new Web client, only.

As 9.1 and 2022 have reached the End of Support here is the Product Lifecycle to plan for future upgrades: https://support.leostream.com/support/solutions/articles/66000514243-leostream-product-life-cycle
