Magnus Box version 21.8.0 is now available. We will begin pushing the update to the servers and endpoints on 9/12/2021. We do not expect any downtime with this quarterly feature release.


21.8.0 (2021-08-31)
Changes compared to 21.5.0

Note: Due to bugs with Office 365 backup, we have decided to postpone releasing it until Q4 2021 or Q1 2022. Office 365 backup will remain available for Magnus Box Beta partners.
