Hey CloudReady Fans!

We're excited to have released v74.1 last night to the Dev Channels for Home, Education and Enterprise Edition customers.

Devices on the Dev Channels can expect over-the-air updates for this release over the next few hours, if they haven’t received them already.

If you’re interested in previewing this release, subscribe to the Dev Channel to get an over-the-air update now.

Release Notes for v74:

  • OS Upgrade to 74

  • Fix: Some devices were reporting randomly generated mac addresses. This fix should cover all such cases.

  • Fix for task bar buttons that were unresponsive in v73.1 on the new user login screen.

  • P2P updates: In v73.1 we released initial support for P2P updates. With v74.1 comes the first opportunity for CloudReady devices to receive updates from another device in the local network already running CloudReady.

    • NOTE: As part of adding P2P updates, we have switched to a new update server for all CloudReady clients on v73.1 or later. That URL will now be https://cloudready-paid-update-server-2.neverware.com

  • UMA Metrics: We are now utilizing Chrome’s User Metrics Analysis to help us identify possible issues and improve CloudReady.

Known Issues

  • For enrolled devices with TPM enabled, updating from v73.1 to v74.1 causes existing user accounts to be locked out after logging out. We have a fix and expect to release it in v74.2.

  • Files App doesn't show Downloads folder after updating to v74.1. Users can put chrome://flags/#enable-myfiles-volume in their URL bar on CloudReady and set the “Enable MyFile as Volume” flag to “Disabled” to work around this issue.

  • Send Feedback window (“Tell us what’s happening”) may require scrolling to view the Send button in v74.1.

Unstable releases often have unforeseen bugs. We rely upon Dev Channel users to report those to us in our forums. If you're ok with a little instability, please jump to this new release and let us know what you think and report any issues using the links below.
