發佈說明

本章包含有關不同 Veyon 版本系列中變更的資訊。 在從舊版本的 Veyon 升級前,您應該仔細閱讀它們。 如果遷移不正確,在最壞的情況下使用具有舊設定的較新版本 Veyon 可能會導致安全問題,例如存取控制規則行為不當。

各個版本的版本資訊可在 `Veyon 發佈頁 <https://github.com/veyon/veyon/releases>`_中找到。

升級組態

由於 Veyon 及其外掛程式的變化,在 Veyon 的發佈系列之間,組態機碼和值都可能發生變化。 通常,Veyon 內建了讀取舊組態機碼和值並執行時在內部遷移的機制。 這可確保 Veyon 只在升級軟體後保持正常執行。 強烈建議始終升級系統中存儲的 Veyon 組態。 這可以透過兩種方式完成:

  1. 開啟 Veyon 組態器,然後按一下 套用 按鈕以永久儲存和套用執行階段遷移的組態。
  2. 使用 命令列介面 以透過 組態模組 <CLIConfigUpgrade> 的升級命令 升級組態。

如果不在所有電腦上自動使用第二種方法,升級後的組態需要之後 匯出到所有其他電腦

如果重新命名組態機碼,為了相容性原因,則始終保留舊機碼,以便更輕鬆地切換回以前的版本。 將來的版本將有一個清理機制,它將移除所有舊組態機碼。

Veyon 4.5

總覽

Veyon 4.5 is the release series with the most changes since Veyon 4.0. Most notably, Veyon 4.5 includes a new WebAPI plugin which allows accessing computers by 3rdparty products via HTTP. Veyon Master introduces the new monitoring panels Slideshow and Spotlight. The demo mode has been greatly extended and improved. It’s now possible to share a student’s screen instead of the own screen easily. In environments where multiple monitors are connected to the computer running Veyon Master, the user can now choose to share a specific monitor only. Moreover, the performance and responsiveness of the demo mode is much better thanks to the demo server now being multithreaded. At the same time Veyon 4.5 focuses on application and desktop virtualization environments by delivering extended and improved multi session support. Additionally various compatibility issues on Linux have been fixed and the file transfer plugin received a configuration page.

  • 核心
    • 功能外掛程式 API 已修訂。
    • The invocation of worker processes and communication with them has been improved, resulting in increased reliability of certain Veyon features such as the demo mode.
    • Session IDs are now managed internally. This allows reusing a session ID after a user session has been closed. RDP session IDs (which are increased continuously) are no longer used for calculating server port numbers.
  • 組態器
    • Several parts of the user interface have been improved.
    • Settings for new Veyon Master features have been added.
  • 外掛程式
    • 示範: 伺服器已重構為多執行緒,從而提高效能和回應能力,尤其是對於許多用戶端。
    • 示範: 加入共享使用者螢幕的功能,而不是自己的螢幕。
    • 示範: 模式 (視窗/全螢幕) 使子功能顯示在下拉功能表中。
    • 示範: 加入功能以只共用多個螢幕中的一個。
    • 檔案傳輸: 已加入組態頁,允許組態來源資料夾和目標資料夾。
    • RemoteAccess: The username is now displayed in the window title.
    • WebAPI: Added a new plugin offering a RESTful API for accessing Veyon Server instances.
  • Linux
    • The reboot/poweroff functions now prefer using systemd-logind.
    • The reboot/poweroff functions now look for binaries in /sbin and /usr/sbin if they are not in the PATH environment variable.
    • The user session management code has been improved to start Veyon Server more reliably.
    • The screenlock feature is now working properly with most desktop environments.
  • 主要
    • The new Slideshow panel cycles through all computers and shows a magnified view of each computer for a short time.
    • The new Spotlight panel shows one or multiple computers in realtime. This allows keeping an eye on users requiring special attention.
    • The size of computer icons is now always adjusted automatically whenever the panel is resized or computers are added or removed.
    • States and sizes of panels are now saved when closing the program and restored upon the next start.
    • The aspect ratio of computer icons is now adjusted to the original screen sizes.
  • 伺服器
    • A notification is now shown for both incomplete and failed authentication attempts.
    • Support for external VNC servers without any authentication/password configured has been added.
  • Windows
    • The Interception driver is now disabled in multi session mode to prevent issues with hanging RDP sessions.
    • The 3rdparty component UltraVNC has been updated to the latest version.
    • Several 3rdparty libraries have been updated (Qt 5.12.11 snapshot, OpenLDAP 2.4.56, OpenSSL 1.1.1h)

Due to the large number of changes, there’s a medium risk for regressions. Therefore especially the initial release (v4.5.0) should be tested thoroughly before deploying.

Veyon 4.4

總覽

Veyon 4.4 與 Veyon 4.3 基本相同。 最顯著的變化是更新的 VNC 和網路堆疊,它提供了更好的可靠性。 因此,Veyon 4.4 在建立與用戶端電腦的連線時使用略有不同的技術和設定,因此在部署之前應徹底測試新版本。 除此之外,回歸的風險非常低。

結構變更

Veyon 4.4 沒有結構變化。

組態變更

未變更或重新命名任何組態金鑰。 VNC 和網路堆疊的各種內部設定 (如逾時和間隔) 現在可在命令列進行組態,作為除錯和調整用途。

Veyon 4.3

總覽

Veyon 4.3 is mostly identical to Veyon 4.2. A new plugin has been added which allows logging in a particular user remotely on all computers. The config CLI module has been improved to handle specific data types (such as JSON data and option indices) more intelligently. Upgrading to Veyon 4.3 does not require any configuration changes. Since only a new plugin has been added and some commands of the config CLI module have been extended the risk of regressions is very low.

結構變更

Veyon 4.3 沒有結構變化。

組態變更

未變更或重新命名任何組態金鑰。 唯一的新組態金鑰與新的遠端登入功能直接相關,通常不需要變更。

Veyon 4.1

總覽

Veyon 4.1 是 Veyon 4 的第一個功能發佈系列。 即使最終使用者看不到,但最顯著的變化是平臺支援模組化,即所有特定於平臺的功能都已移動到不同的外掛程式。 這大大改善了各個平臺的支援,並使得將來支援更多平臺變得更加容易。 除此之外,與 4.0 相比,Veyon 4.1 還提供了許多改進和新功能:

  • 核心
    • 組態中的所有密碼現在已加密。
    • 特定於平臺的代碼已移入平臺外掛程式。

  • Windows
    • 所有組建都基於具有 GCC 7.3, Qt 5.9 LTS 和 OpenSSL 1.1. 的更新工具鏈。

結構變更

As part of the changes for systemd support on Linux, in Veyon 4.1 the Veyon Service component has been split into two separate components. The Veyon Service no longer contains the actual functions to provide access to a computer. These functions have been moved into the new Veyon Server component which runs as a standalone process in user sessions. The Veyon Service now only monitors user sessions on a computer and starts Veyon Server instances within these sessions.

The LocalData plugin has been split into the BuiltinDirectory and SystemUserGroups plugins. This allows using different data sources for access control, e.g. computers from an LDAP directory in combination with local user groups. After upgrading you should verify that the appropriate network object directory and access control user groups backend are selected as desired.

組態變更

在 Veyon 4.1 中變更了以下組態機碼:

ExternalVncServer/Password

In Veyon 4.0 this key contained the unencrypted password for an external VNC server. Starting with Veyon 4.1 this password is always stored encrypted. It will be encrypted automatically when upgrading the configuration to 4.1. There’s no way to encrypt the password manually. When downgrading to 4.0 the password needs to be set explicitly again.

LDAP/BindPassword

In Veyon 4.0 this key contained the unencrypted LDAP bind password. Starting with Veyon 4.1 this password is always stored encrypted. It will be encrypted automatically when upgrading the configuration to 4.1. There’s no way to encrypt the password manually. When downgrading to 4.0 the password needs to be set explicitly again.

LDAP/UsersFilter, LDAP/UserGroupsFilter, LDAP/ComputersFilter, LDAP/ComputerGroupsFilter, LDAP/ComputerContainersFilter

Veyon 4.0 used a non-standard syntax for LDAP filters. This has been fixed in Veyon 4.1 where all filter expressions must be placed in parentheses. The expressions will be adjusted automatically when upgrading the configuration to 4.1.

BuiltinDirectory/NetworkObjects

In Veyon 4.0 the builtin network object directory was provided by a different plugin. Starting with Veyon 4.1 locations and computers are stored in BuiltinDirectory/NetworkObjects instead of LocalData/NetworkObjects.

Veyon 4.0

Veyon 4.0 是 Veyon 4 的第一個版本系列,iTALC 的繼任者。 它具有模組化架構、重寫的主應用程式和 LDAP/AD 支援。 自 2018 年 12 月起,Veyon 4.0.x 系列已標記為使用壽命終止,不再接收更新。
