Changes in previous releases:

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.5.2 include:

  • The mobilEcho server now supports requiring that mobilEcho Android clients are managed by MobileIron AppConnect.
  • Added support for smart card authentication. Active Directory user credentials are provided by the x.509 certificate located on the smart card. These credentials must be associated with the user’s Active Directory account. Please note: Smart card support requires mobilEcho 4.5.2 for iOS, which will be released in the next few weeks.
  • Added a setting to allow or disallow authentication to the mobilEcho server using smart cards.
  • Fixed an issue where clients could time out trying to connect to a server if mobilEcho was configured to enumerate site collections.
  • Fixed an issue where the mobilEcho server selected when configuring a custom home directory path could fail to save properly when saving a user or group profile.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.5 include:

  • Added support for giving access to SharePoint Online for Office 365.
  • Added the ability to enumerate and browse into individual SharePoint site collections.
  • Added support for client certificate authentication to mobilEcho file servers.
  • Added profile options to enable or disable the client’s ability to edit text and/or Office files, to configure an auto-sync interval, and to automatically sync a user’s home folder.
  • Increased the maximum volume name length to 127 UTF-8 characters to allow for longer volume names when using Unicode characters.
  • Added separate columns to the exported .csv devices list for display name and common name to make the usernames more clear.

Changes in the mobilEcho 4.5 iOS client app include:

  • Due to changes in Apple’s policy regarding the use of iOS device identifiers (UDID’s), this version of mobilEcho requires mobilEcho Server version 4.3.1 or later. If this requirement is not met, the mobilEcho server will not be able to identify the mobilEcho client device. The client app will then be put into a ‘restricted mode’ until you take the actions described in this PDF.
  • In-app Office document editing (Supports: DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX)
  • In-app text file editing
  • Added support for SharePoint 365
  • The encryption module used by mobilEcho is now FIPS 140-2 certified
  • Alternative grid view for browsing files, with thumbnail previews of on-device files
  • Multiple files can now be opened simultaneously
  • If file synchronization is occurring when leaving the mobilEcho app, it will now continue in the background until the file transfer completes or the process is stopped by iOS
  • The interval at which mobilEcho will perform file syncs while the app is open can now be set
  • Syncing can now be configured, from within the app, to automatically occur only when the device has a WiFi connection
  • Improvements to sync progress and error indication
  • mobilEcho links to SharePoint locations in site collections can now be opened, as long as the user has access to a higher-level location on the SharePoint server where the site collection resides.
  • Text search and table of contents are now available when viewing a PDF file while your IT administrator has disabled PDF annotation.
  • Support for user certificate authentication with mobilEcho servers
  • Miscellaneous fixes and improvements

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.3.2 include:

  • Added support for providing access to SharePoint 2013.
  • Fixed an issue where mobilEcho Administrator could fail to create an activEcho volume when the product is licensed with a “Standalone Retail” serial number.
  • Fixed an issue where a mobilEcho client could fail to open its home directory if the home directory is configured using the %USERNAME% wildcard and the mobilEcho server’s domain and the user’s domain have a trust relationship.
  • Fixed an issue where the server could incorrectly send an error message to Android clients when those clients attempted to obtain their profile.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.3.1 include:

  • The mobilEcho server now supports mobilEcho clients that identify themselves using a custom device identifier, rather than Apple’s device identifier. mobilEcho Server 4.3.1 is required for seamless support for mobilEcho iOS clients released after May 1st, 2013. For more details on these changes and options for preparing for them, please see the mobilEcho 4.3.1 UDID Admin Guide.
  • Fixed an issue where the Users and Groups pages of the mobilEcho Client Management web console could load very slowly if there were a large number of configured profiles.
  • Fixed an issue where the enrollment link in client enrollment invitation emails could fail to open properly on Android clients.
  • Fixed an issue where iOS clients could fail to connect to the server after upgrading from 4.0.1 server or earlier to 4.3 server.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.3 include:

  • The mobilEcho server now supports mobilEcho clients with optional support for MobileIron AppConnect activated. The server now allows administrators to require or restrict a server access to clients with AppConnect enabled. This setting is located in the “Settings” window of the “mobilEcho Administrator” application, on the “Security” tab.
  • Fixed an issue where clients upgrading from 4.0.x or earlier could incorrectly receive a “specified account does not have a management profile” error when attempting to retrieve their latest management profile.
  • Fixed an issue where the mobilEcho server’s memory usage could increase if the mobilEcho Administrator was left open for a long period of time.
  • Fixed an issue where the client would fail to show an error or would show an incorrect error message if the user’s AD account password had expired, or the account was locked out or disabled.
  • Fixed an issue where the server upgrade process could fail if mobilEcho had been installed to a non-system drive.
  • Fixed an issue where a JavaScript error would occur each time a user or group profile was added via the client management web application when using IE8.

Changes in the mobilEcho 4.3 iOS client app include:

  • mobilEcho now optionally supports the MobileIron AppConnect platform. This allows mobilEcho to take advantage of AppConnect secure app containerization and AppTunnel secure communication and access control.
  • For details on activating MobileIron AppConnect in the mobilEcho app and mobilEcho auto-configuration with AppConnect, please visit: mobilEcho for MobileIron AppConnect Users Guide
  • Fixed an issue where AD password expiration could give an incorrect error message
  • Fixed an issue where clients upgrading from 4.0.x or earlier could incorrectly receive a “specified account does not have a management profile” error when attempting to retrieve their latest management profile.
  • Fixed an issue where the mobilEcho app could crash if a link was opened while the app was also in the process of emailing a link.

Changes in the mobilEcho for Good Dynamics 4.3 iOS client app include:

  • Added localization for French, German, and Japanese.

  • Fixed a problem where the app could hang if left while displaying the “Overwrite / Rename / Cancel” dialog when saving an annotated PDF.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could hang when attempting an “Open In” from the PDF previewer if no apps are installed that can open PDF files.
  • Fixed an issue where the app could crash after upgrading if mobilEcho coexisted with ‘Good for Enterprise’ prior to the upgrade.
  • Fixed an issue where the app could crash immediately after a remote wipe initiated by Good Dynamics.
  • Fixed an issue where ‘Save Back’ could fail when using Good For Enterprise on the iPhone.
  • Fixed an issue where AD password expiration could give an incorrect error message.
  • Fixed an issue where clients upgrading from 4.0.x or earlier could incorrectly receive a “specified account does not have a management profile” error when attempting to retrieve their latest management profile.
  • Fixed an issue where the mobilEcho app could crash if a link was opened while the app was also in the process of emailing a link.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.2 include:

  • mobilEcho 4.2 servers now support mobilEcho 4.2 clients localized in German, French and Japanese. The 4.2 server will ensure that these clients receive server error messages in their local language. In addition, the mobilecho_manager_intl.cfg file contains settings to configure the client enrollment invitation email subjects in these three languages.
  • The mobilEcho Client Management service will now automatically detect crashes in the client management web application and stop the service so that administrators can properly detect these errors. Additional error information will be written to the ManagementUI\log folder.
  • Fixed a problem where the user could repeatedly be asked to enter proxy credentials when accessing the mobilEcho server through an HTTPS reverse proxy server.
  • Fixed a problem where the mobilEcho Client Management Server web UI could fail to restart because the client management database schema was not updated properly on upgrade. This would occur if the database was configured to be stored on a disk that was not available at upgrade time.
  • Sorting devices by “Last Contact” now sorts newest to oldest by default.
  • Fixed a problem where whitelists and blacklists could not be assigned when adding or editing a user or group profile.
  • Fixed a problem where files that were already on the device could sync again unnecessarily if the sync source was within an activEcho volume.
  • The password field on the login page of the client management web UI now has auto-complete disabled.
  • Removing a user or group profile now causes the name information for that user/group to be removed from cache. This ensures that re-adding a profile for that user/group will always force the management UI to retrieve the latest name from Active Directory.
  • Fixed a problem where “set the default file action” and “cache recently accessed files on this device” could be enabled in profiles after upgrading mobilEcho server.
  • Fixed a problem where the app password reset functionality in the management server UI might not work properly in Firefox.
  • Fixed a problem on the Invitations page of the client management server web UI where users within distribution subgroups could fail to be found in LDAP searches.
  • Fixed a problem where the server check for free disk space in a folder would incorrectly check the free space at the root of the mobilEcho volume.
  • Fixed a problem where open file handles would not be closed for 24 hours if a client disconnected in the middle of a file transfer. These handles will now be closed when the session times out, after 15 minutes.

Changes in the mobilEcho 4.2 iOS client app include:

  • Added localization for French, German, and Japanese.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could hang if left while displaying the “Overwrite / Rename / Cancel” dialog when saving an annotated PDF.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could hang when attempting an “Open In” from the PDF previewer if no apps are installed that can open PDF files.
  • Fixed a problem where saving a PDF after annotation could result in an existing file being overwritten without warning during a “Rename and Save” if the user entered a filename that already existed.
  • Fixed a problem where the sources lists could display incorrectly when using a Bluetooth keyboard.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could crash when attempting to email a link if the user is not configured to send mail from the device.
  • Fixed a problem where searches of the user’s home folder could yield results from outside that folder.
  • Fixed rotation issues with iOS 6.
  • Fixed a problem on iPhone where manually syncing a folder that was already selected would cause mobilEcho to enter that folder.
  • Fixed a problem where empty names were considered valid in the sync conflict dialog.
  • Fixed a problem where PDF annotations would not save properly to the File Inbox if the user attempted to save a file to a server with Wi-Fi disabled.
  • Fixed a problem where opening a bookmark link would cause a bookmark to be created, even if the user’s profile did not allow folders to be bookmarked.
  • Fixed a problem on the iPhone where the app could crash if the action menu was tapped from the volume search window.
  • Fixed a problem when processing sync conflicts where the file on the server could become corrupted if the user’s version of the file was smaller than the server’s version.
  • Fixed a problem where mobilEcho links would not be processed correctly if the links contained an address that included a HTTPS reverse proxy ‘managed path’.
  • Fixed a problem where users would have to re-trust an untrusted certificate that they had previous chosen to trust. This would occur after an upgrade of the mobilEcho client app.
  • Fixed a problem where the amount of free cache space could be calculated incorrectly, causing a file larger than the total amount of cache space to file to open or preview.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could crash if a read-only server-based PDF was annotated, saved to the File Inbox, and previewed again.

Changes in the mobilEcho 2.0.3 Android client app include:

  • Added localization for French, German, and Japanese.
  • The app now supports screen rotation to portrait or landscape orientation.
  • Updated and improved file, folder, and resource icons.
  • Fixed an issue where you might be asked to log in again unexpectedly.
  • Various stability, performance, and issue fixes.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.1 include:

  • Added support for Windows Server 2012.
  • Added an alternative client management server authentication mechanism so that mobilEcho clients that are configured to not save credentials for assigned servers and folders can authenticate to the management server to retrieve their profile without requiring their Active Directory password be stored on the device.
  • Modified the app password reset process. This was necessary to support the new custom on-device encryption that is included in the mobilEcho 4.1 client app. If a managed client forgets their app password, they now provide their administrator with a code generated by the app. The administrator enters this code into the mobilEcho Client Management web console and receives a second code that they give back to the client. This code allows the user to reset their app password and get into the app.
  • Enhanced the way resources (servers and folders) are provisioned to clients. Provisioned resources are no longer assigned directly to user/group profiles. Users or groups are now assigned directly to individual assigned resources and each user receives the full collection of resources assigned to their user account or a group they are a member of.
  • Added the ability to send up to three enrollment invitations to the same email address automatically for users with multiple devices.
  • Added a column to the LDAP search table for Distinguished Name so that users with the same name in different subdomains can be distinguished.
  • Added new management profile setting to allow or disallow users from opening and/or sending links to files.
  • Added client Good Dynamics status in the management server Devices list. Devices enrolled with Good Dynamics will no longer have the “Reset App Password” option available. The app password is managed within the Good Control console in this scenario.
  • Fixed a problem where the Group Profiles page of the Client Management Administrator could generate an error if a group whose distinguished name contained one or more Unicode characters was present.
  • Fixed a problem where hiding inaccessible files on reshares when one of the volumes was a SharePoint volume could cause some of the volumes to fail to appear on the client.
  • Fixed a problem where the Client Management Administrator could fail to filter the devices or invitations tables, or could take a very long time to complete the filter. Filtering is now done without the need to perform additional LDAP requests.
  • Fixed a problem where attempting to read a file on an activEcho volume that no longer exists would result in a corrupted file being read rather than an error being returned.
  • Fixed a problem where the presence of a misconfigured or unavailable activEcho volume could cause clients to time out when attempting to retrieve the volume list.
  • Fixed a misleading message in the Client Management Administrator if a profile was configured to have ‘App password must contain complex characters’ greater than the ‘Minimum password length’.
  • Fixed a problem when the client management server was configured to use a non-default port (i.e. not port 3000) and the server was upgraded. The first time the management server would run after upgrade it would attempt to use port 3000 rather than the configured port.
  • Modified the message in the Client Management Administrator when removing a currently managed client from the devices list to indicate that the client may automatically reenroll at a later time if enrollment PINs are not being used.
  • Fixed a problem where the Client Management Administrator could display an error if a profile was configured to use a home folder with an empty custom path.
  • Fixed a problem where 0-byte files would fail to download or sync with a “device not ready” error.
  • Content search is now automatically disabled on activEcho and SharePoint volumes since content search is not available.
  • Fixed a problem where users with email address beginning with underscore (e.g. “_user@example.com”) could fail to receive enrollment invitations.
  • Client Management Administrator now returns a better error message than “unknown result” if the LDAP server requires SSL.
  • Fixed a problem where sessions could time out while downloading very large files from a filesystem volume.
  • Fixed a problem where configuring an assigned folder with an invalid path (e.g. “C:\foo\bar”) could cause the Users page to show the error “can’t modify frozen string”.
  • Fixed a problem where selecting the “Reindex all volumes” button in the mobilEcho Administrator would generate an invalid error message.
  • Fixed a problem where filtering on a Unicode string in the Client Management Administrator could generate an “incompatible character encodings” error.
  • SharePoint “Wiki Page Gallery” libraries are now removed from site enumerations because they are not supported by mobilEcho.
  • Fixed a problem where new profile settings could become corrupted on upgrade.
  • Fixed a problem where a SharePoint document library volume would fail to work if the document library name was URL encoded, e.g. “My%20Library”.

Changes in the mobilEcho 4.1 iOS client app include:

  • Added support for the iPhone 5 screen resolution.
  • Added additional, custom in-app file encryption. In addition to Apple Data Protection encryption, files are also independently encrypted by the mobilEcho app itself using Apple CommonCrypto AES256 encryption. mobilEcho files are encrypted even when a device is unlocked or when mobilEcho files are backed up into iTunes or iCloud backups. When a device is locked and Apple Data Protection encryption is active, mobilEcho files are now double encrypted.
  • Added support for filename search of on-device files within ‘My Files’ and sync folders.
  • Added the ability to email links to mobilEcho files and folders to other mobilEcho users.
  • Added the ability to open links to mobilEcho files and folders and to open links that create mobilEcho bookmarks. These links must be opened on a device with the mobilEcho app installed and activated, and by a user who has access to the file or folder the link points to.
  • Added the ability to unarchive ZIP files.
  • Added the ability to sort file lists. Files can be sorted alphabetically (the default) as well as by modification date, size, file type and with folders before files.
  • The user is now warned if they attempt to discard another user’s checkout of a SharePoint file.
  • Fixed a problem where the mobilEcho client could crash if you copied a folder starting with ‘%’ or ‘_’ to My Files.
  • If the server-side version of a user-created sync folder no longer exists, the user will be warned and asked if they want to keep or delete the sync folder.
  • Fixed a problem where refreshing a content search with zero results could result in a crash.
  • Fixed a problem where files could fail to ‘Open In’ mobilEcho from other apps if mobilEcho wasn’t already running.
  • Fixed a problem where sync folders could fail to be removed if a user’s profile had “Allow files to be stored on this device” is disabled and the server was upgrading from 3.5 to 4.x.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could crash after processing a remote wipe.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could crash if the user attempted to search while the file list was loading.
  • Fixed a problem where previewing an HTML file containing relative links (e.g. to stylesheets or Javascript files) could cause the previewer to hang.
  • Fixed a problem where the app could crash if “Copy Photos” was selected within a provisioned folder that is unavailable.
  • Fixed a problem where files sent to mobilEcho from the FileOpen app would fail to preview.
  • Fixed a problem where mobilEcho could crash at startup when processing sync folders.
  • Fixed a problem where mobilEcho could crash at startup trying to display a warning about the app not being able to contact the management server.

  • Fixed a problem where non-Good clients could enroll with a management server that was configured to require clients be enrolled with Good Dynamics. Previously, clients could enroll, but would receive an error when contacting the server to access data. Clients are now disallowed from enrolling in the first place.

Changes in the mobilEcho 4.0.1 iOS client app include:

  • Fixed a problem where a volume to volume file copy between SharePoint volumes could fail to complete if the file size exceeded 16 MB.
  • Fixed a problem where the user’s cache settings could reset to 50 MB after upgrading from the 3.7 client.

  • Fixed a problem where a file could fail to sync to a 2-way sync folder on a SharePoint volume if the file had changed locally but not on the server.
  • Fixed a problem where a file could fail to sync to a 2-way sync folder on a SharePoint volume if the SharePoint document library requires checkout.
  • Fixed a problem where Save Back could fail if the “Open In” was performed from a preview from search results.
  • Fixed a problem where sync folders would sync even if the mobilEcho app was locked.
  • Fixed a problem where choosing “rename and save” when performing a Save Back could cause the file to be saved to the File Inbox rather than to the server.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 4.0.1 include:

  • Added profile settings for “Number of days to warn of pending lock” and “Number of days to warn of pending wipe”. These settings relate to existing settings that can wipe or lock the mobilEcho app if the device does not contact the management server for a specified period of time.
  • Added pagination, filtering and sorting to the Users and Groups pages within the mobilEcho Client Management server.

If you are using AD “Distribution” groups for any of your mobilEcho Client Management policies, please use the “Active Directory Users and Computers” control panel to convert these groups to “Security” groups.
  • Fixed a problem where a user that used different username formats to enroll with multiple devices would occupy multiple licenses. For example, if one device was enrolled as “user@example.com” and a second device was enrolled as “example\user”, the licensing logic would treat those as two separate user accounts for licensing purposes.
  • Fixed a problem where a user could fail to get the appropriate group profile if the user’s Active Directory primary group was not set to the default of “Domain Users”.
  • Fixed a problem where a user could fail to get the appropriate group profile if the user’s group was a “universal” Active Directory group.
  • Fixed a problem where users with Unicode characters in their usernames would not have their credentials saved after enrolling with mobilEcho Client Management.
  • Fixed a problem where the server could allow mobilEcho clients to overwrite files that were flagged as read-only.

  • Fixed a problem where Verizon iPad 3 devices were displayed as “AT&T” (and vice versa) in the mobilEcho Client Management devices page.
  • Fixed a problem where the mobilEcho Administrator could crash when viewing the list of connected users.
  • Fixed a problem where the invitation email would fail to show the username.

Changes in the mobilEcho 3.5.3 iOS client app include:

  • Added support for backup and restore of iOS devices running mobilEcho. If you are running mobilEcho 3.5, 3.5.1, or 3.5.2, please update to mobilEcho 3.5.3 or later before backing up your device and restoring it to the same or another device.
  • Fixed a couple internal file system issues.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 3.5.2 include:

  • Fixed a problem where users authenticating using their user principal name (e.g. ‘user@domain.com’) may fail to retrieve a profile and/or connect to their home directories.
  • Clients are now denied access to a server if the server’s “Require that client is managed to access this server” option in the mobilEcho Administrator is enabled and the list of valid management servers is empty.
  • Fixed a problem where users could fail to connect to a server if their management server address contained a path (for reverse proxy support) and the server was configured to require that clients are managed by a specific management server.
  • Fixed a problem where provisioned folders might not be assignable to a management profile if “allow files to be stored on the device” was disabled.
  • Fixed a problem where client could fail to connect to a server because the number of available licenses incorrectly went to zero.

Changes in the mobilEcho 3.5.2 iOS client app include:

  • Fixed an issue that prevented mobilEcho from running on the new iPad.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 3.5.1 include:

  • Fixed a problem where users could fail to enrolling using their “user principal names” (e.g. user@domain.com) when those users were members of a subdomain but their user principal name contained the name of the parent domain.

  • Added the ability to configure mobilEcho home folders with custom paths. These paths may include a username wildcard.
  • mobilEcho no longer requires that users have “list folder” permissions at the root of a share containing their home folder.
  • Added a new registry setting to control whether or not hidden shares on a network reshare are visible to mobilEcho clients. To enable this feature, set the following registry setting to 1: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\mobilEcho\Parameters4\Refreshable\Pez\GetShowHiddenSMBShares
  • Fixed a problem where files would incorrectly require a sync after a change in daylight savings time.
  • Fixed a problem where the mobilEcho Client Management server would appear to allow access without a proper username and password.

  • Fixed a problem where mobilEcho could fail to install or run on systems missing a system DLL (normaliz.dll).
  • Fixed a problem where the client could fail to copy a file to the server if the user account did not have permission to calculate the amount of free space on the volume. The client would report an error about there not being enough free space on the volume.
  • Removed extraneous logging from the mobilEcho LOG.TXT file.
  • Fixed a problem where folders could not be provisioned for servers whose display name contained parentheses.

  • Increased the default timeout for contacting servers from 10 to 30 seconds.

Changes in mobilEcho Server 3.1 include:

  • Client management profiles can now be configured with the following new settings:
    • The number of incorrect app password attempts that can be made before the local data within the mobilEcho app is automatically wiped. This feature is disabled by default.
    • Whether the user is required to confirm before syncing occurs (options are: “Always”, “Never”, and “Only on 3G”).
    • Whether syncing is allowed any time, or only while on WiFi networks.
    • Client timeout for unresponsive servers now provides additional values of 90, 120 and 180 seconds.
  • The mobilEcho Client Management server can now be configured to communicate with Active Directory via secure LDAP.
  • Profiles now default to allow files to be cached on the local device. If caching is disabled or if the “Allow files to be stored on this device” setting is disabled, no files will be cached.
  • The text of enrollment invitation emails can be customized. Please visit the GroupLogic Knowledge Base for more information: http://support.grouplogic.com/?p=3749

Changes in the mobilEcho 3.1 iOS client app include:

  • Added optional integration with Salesforce.com. Folders provisioned in client management profiles can be configured to require Salesforce.com activity logging. Enabling this option will require any user who has the provisioned folder assigned to their mobilEcho management profile to log a customer activity in Salesforce before they can open any file in the folder. This is done completely within the mobilEcho client app. All items in the folder will be restricted from being emailed, printed, copied or moved outside this folder, or opened in other apps on the device.
  • PDF files are now automatically highlighted in the file list after being saved.
  • The client will now refuse to enroll with a management server that does not have a trusted SSL certificate if the client’s profile on that management server indicates that all servers must have trusted certificates.

Changes in mobilEcho 3.0 include:

  • Client app support for iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, and iPod Touch.
  • Client app support for PDF annotation. This capability can be disabled through the mobilEcho Client Management Administrator if needed. PDF annotation is supported on the iPad mobilEcho client only.
  • Centrally managed device enrollment. Client enrollment invitations are now generated and emailed to the user from the mobilEcho Client Management Administrator. These invitations include a one-time use PIN number required for client enrollment.
  • Remote wipe and remote reset of app passwords is now performed on a per-device basis.
  • Individual device status is now displayed in the mobilEcho Client Management Administrator. This includes device user name, device name, device type, iOS version, mobilEcho version, mobilEcho status, last contact time.
