Browsium Ion 2.0 Update 1 Now Available

Posted by: Browsium Posted date:

Customer response to Browsium Ion has been overwhelmingly positive. Since our launch in January, we’ve been working with enterprise organizations from around the world to help them overcome the web application compatibility problems that have blocked their Windows 7 upgrades. We’ve also been working behind the scenes to improve Ion and address key deployment blockers reported by customers since the launch.

Browsium Ion 2.0 Update 1, a maintenance release to address these deployment blockers, is available today. Update 1 is a full release of both the Ion Configuration Manager and Ion Client Add-on and everyone is encouraged to upgrade their test and production systems. Installation is seamless and quick, with no need to uninstall the previous version before installing Update 1. In addition, all existing Ion project files will continue to work as is.

Improvements in Browsium Ion 2.0 Update 1 include:

  • NTLM and Kerberos authentication is now supported for servers that enforce Channel Binding for HTTPS traffic
  • Support for automatic proxy configuration settings, including WPAD and PAC configuration scripts
  • Ion-managed web pages now honor Internet Explorer’s zoom setting
  • Improved support for Internet Explorer hotkeys in Ion-managed web pages
  • File uploads now work through Ion-managed web pages
  • Administrators now have the ability to disable the Ion startup splash screen via a configuration option

You should have received an email this week directing you to your custom Ion 2.0 Update 1 download link if you’ve ever requested an evaluation kit from Browsium. (Check your inbox and spam filter if you missed it — email us if you still can’t find it.)

If you’re new to Ion and would like to learn more about the process we use for remediation, please check out our JumpStart Program web page.
