We want to inform you about the release of a new Heimdal™ Release Candidate Dashboard version and of a new RC Heimdal™ Agent version, 2.5.372 RC. The new Agent instance can be downloaded, starting today (August 25th 2021) from the Guide section, Download and install tab of the Heimdal™ RC Dashboard. We will also deploy it, on a roll-out basis, over the course of next week.
