Hey CloudReady Fans!

We're excited to release v74.4 today to all channels and Editions of CloudReady!

Devices will start receiving over-the-air updates for this release over the next few hours.

Release Notes for v74

  • OS Upgrade to 74

  • 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. Neverware only collects data in order to improve the customer experience. For more info regarding our privacy policy, click here.

  • When initiating printing in Google Sheets or Slides, CloudReady does not allow users to select a printer and will instead jump directly to printing the document as a PDF. This has been fixed in v74.3.

  • Fix for some font display issues which we discovered due to their impact on a digital testing app. We released a patch for this fix, which will also be included in this release.

  • Fixed: Additional Hardware Information section in device details on my.neverware.com was not populating for Lenovo ThinkCentre M58 devices.

  • Fixed touchscreen and touchpad functionality on Lenovo N24 - This device will be certified, in addition to these fixes, in v74.4.

  • Fixed touchpad issues on HP Elitebook 840 G5. This device is not yet certified but may be soon.

  • Lenovo ThinkPad T450 fix for audio output

  • Initial mitigation for ZombieLoad vulnerability - A new security vulnerability, known as “ZombieLoad” has been published and impacts the majority of Intel processors. CloudReady v74.4 includes the same risk-mitigation strategy that Google is providing to Chrome OS by disabling hyperthreading on Intel CPUs. Read more here.
