  1. Provision of Log-out option: This enables the user to log out and log in again with the same or another credential without closing the application.

  2. Autosave login detail: This enhancement helps the user to save time. Now entered details will get saved, once the user types them in. They don't have to enter login details every time they open the application.

  3. Device location filter enhancement: This enhancement prevents the user from manually entering sub-cloud detail. Once the user enters the main cloud detail, sub cloud is accessible just by changing the dropdown.

  4. iOS Tunnel Enhancement: This enables users to have admin permission only once. Now they don't need admin permission(SUDO) each time they run the iOS tunnel.
