In addition to code enhancements and bug fixes the following features are included in this release:

Web Proxy Support

File Director can now be configured to use a web proxy for external services connections such as OneDrive, Google Drive and Box for example. Refer to Advanced Configuration Options.

Cluster Wide Maintenance Mode Activation

A cluster of File Director appliances can now be disabled simultaneously with a single click, reducing the time and effort previously demanded when performing environment wide maintenance or troubleshooting.
