Veyon 4.7.3 released

We’re happy to announce Veyon 4.7.3, the third maintenance release of Veyon 4.7.x. This release fixes an authentication-related issue on Linux and improves the reliability of the Veyon Service on older Linux distributions. Users working with folder redirection on Windows may benefit from the new additional path variables, e.g. when configuring Veyon to place screenshots in a redirected desktop folder.

All downloads for this release are available in the download area.
