SureVue MVOS update 1.3.0

The latest release of MVOS brings improvements for kiosk applications, performance improvements for all SureVue models (particularly the Carbon), and a fix for the WPA2 "Krack attack" vulnerability.

The usual updates of Chromium and the Appspace HTML5 client are included.

For full details, see the Release Notes (highlights below).

Please note that the order of installing the 2 parts of the update is important, as stated in the Update Procedure section of the Release Notes. Install the "critical" update first, then the "extra" update file.

Update Highlights

  • WPA Supplicant update to eliminate “KRACK attack” vulnerability
  • Optimization for interactive Kiosk environments
    • Removed right click for touchscreens
    • Removed cursor for touchscreen applications

Known Issues
  • Multiple Scheduled Actions (ANM only) - Due to an issue with synchronization in the underlying environment, scheduling multiple actions which utilize a particular serial port will cause all but the first action to fail. The current work-around is to utilize "broadcast" serial actions when possible, and schedule actions at least one minute apart when individual display addressing is required.
