Veyon 4.7.4 released

We’re happy to announce Veyon 4.7.4, the fourth maintenance release of Veyon 4.7.x. This release adds support for Ubuntu 22.04 and Fedora 36. The handling of nested locations has been improved greatly so users of the LDAP Pro add-on now are able to fully use features such as automatic location detection and hiding locations other than the current one. There also have been improvements for multi-monitor setups, e.g. the lock window now covers all screens on Windows.

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