Release of version 4.4.0


With version 4.4.0, two major features were added: Custom Scripts and a Kiosk mode.

With the scripts, it is possible to define JavaScript, which is inserted into any websites and apps by the browser. This can be used to implement many functions, such as login via QR code and NFC as well as customizing old web applications or hiding unnecessary fields. Further details with examples of how these scripts can be used can be found in the instructions to Custom Scripts.

Kiosk mode can be used if no MDM is in use, which usually includes kiosk mode. More details can also be found in the instructions for kiosk mode.
