Hey CloudReady Fans!

We're excited to be bringing v64.4 to all Education & Enterprise users today. Home Edition users who have been on v64.3 for a while already, will get this version, with some bug fixes and additional improvements, starting tomorrow.

Update 5/1/18:
After a brief delay, v64.4 is going out to our Home Edition users today!

Release Notes for v64:

  • OS Upgrade to 64
  • Removal of dualboot install option: In keeping with our previously announced timeline for sunsetting dualboot in CloudReady, v64 will no longer offer the ability to install dualboot mode. Read more.
  • Add support for PCI-connected eMMC storage: In v64, devices with eMMC internal storage that connects via PCI (rather than SATA) are able to install and boot CloudReady.
  • Fix for graphics issues on NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GPUs: We found some Macbooks and iMacs with NVIDIA 8400M graphics were showing graphics and boot problems starting v63. This release should fix those troubles
  • Sleep/resume & audio fixes for Asus T100TA: Though not certified because of other issues, we've fixed sound and sleep issues with this convertible device.
  • Google Hangouts/Meet screensharing fix: A change on the server side to Google's Hangouts and Meet video-conferencing solutions recently caused CloudReady to be unable to screenshare. Our team has resolved this issue.
  • New certified models: We're adding another handful of devices to our certified models list with v64. They are:
    • Dell Latitude 7280

    • Dell Latitude E7270

    • Dell Latitude 3450

    • Dell Latitude 3470

    • Asus X55C

    • Asus X202E

Home Edition-only changes:

Known Issues

  • Wallpaper rendering issues on some older GPUs: Some devices with GMA 950 and GMA 3150 graphics are no longer properly rendering the CloudReady wallpaper (and some other user-specified wallpapers). Issues of this kind are fixed once logged in as a user.
  • General issues with dual/switchable GPUs: We've found that machines with dual GPUs (Intel and NVIDIA) fail to boot CloudReady. We are generally recommending that all users disable "Optimus" or "Switchable" graphics in their BIOS/UEFI settings.
