Today we are proud to announce the latest version of Mikogo:

The Mikogo client for Windows and macOS has been released as version 5.9.0 and our iOS application has been fully rewritten and released as version 1.2.

With this release, we now support the latest operating systems on the market: Microsoft Windows 10, Apple macOS High Sierra and Apple iOS 11.

An important improvement is probably one you wouldn’t even notice. We’ve improved security deep inside the Mikogo codebase. Of course, this version will be usable as easy as it ever was, with all the features you know and love.

While we are at it, we would also like to remind you about video in Mikogo.

We also implemented improvements that allow us to respond more flexibly and extensively to corporate customers and API partners. An example of such an improvement is the automatic adoption of proxy settings and their credentials in Windows Active Directory environments.

To get Mikogo 5.9.0, please visit https://mikogo.com/download and click the green “Download” button. After the download finished, just follow the instructions to install Mikogo on your operating system.

Further details on the improvements can be found in our Release Notes.

• Semitransparent
• Fades away automatically

If you do not already have version 5.4.1 you can get it here.
