Upgrade Instructions


  • Security Patch:
    • A minor security patch has been applied to defend the application against malicious external attackers who might seek to leverage an application component contrary to intent in order to potentially exploit potential vulnerabilities. 
    • This update resolves these concerns.


  • Ability to create users via the API, when allowed in the options settings.
  • Ability to use Syslog with an Encrypted TCP option, including to ignore TLS chain errors. 
  • Ability to view and sort on Date Archived column, in the system Archive folder.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause problem with client app authentications.
  • Fixed an issue to standardize Syslog datetime format, in accordance with RFC3164.

Known Issues

  • KeePass client File Size:

    • KeePass desktop install file size: 370 MB.
      • Includes WebView2 component benefits: rigorous OAuth authentication methods, application proxy, mitigation of security issues, and reducing potential install failures.
      • Future: using the machine's default browser will bring the large file size back down to previous levels. 
  • Stalled Install progress:

    • The installation requires .NET 4.8 framework files as a prerequisite (see section below)
    • If the file installation process is stalled after 10 minutes, stop, restart the machine, and restart the install. The files have now been added and the install will now complete.

Compatibility Notes

  • KeePass:
    • KeePass for Pleasant users must upgrade to 8.0.8

  • Server: Requires .NET 4.8

    • The Upgrade may try to download these .NET 4.8 files from the internet for the upgrade, if they are not already installed:
    • Running this once before install/upgrade will ensure the install process is smooth.
