Firmware changes
Javascript Update
With the new Javascript (JS) update, users will no longer have to use Plugins in order to access the Web User Interface. This will drastically increase the number of supported browsers.

FTP is fixed, users who had issues with FTP not working at all or having their files deleting themselves after a device reset, this should now be resolved.

Microphone Button removed due possible security concern. Will return in the future

Infinite loading issue resolved

Multi-Snapshot removal due to JS limitation. R&D will perform further evaluation for possible future return.

Local Video record removed due possible security concern. Will return in the future.

Here are the results of my initial testing:

Safari 12.1.1 On a Mac
_______________________

Live view:
- Encountered the infinite loading bug on the first log on, afterwards it worked fine.
- Live sound button does not work.
- No selection area zoom button. Only regular zoom functionality.

Playback:
- Calendar does not highlight dates with recordings
- No timeline is displayed to review recordings. The only way to check recording is by clicking on the ‘File List’ button.
- No date ranges selection dropdown are displayed
- No download or crop buttons.

Setup:
- Sometimes, after moving through various settings, the preview windows no longer displays video.

Storage -> Destination:
- There is a black box on the the top right corner that is clickable. Looks like is was supposed to be a button.

Setup -> System -> Auto Maintain:
- No Manual Reboot button.

Firefox 67.0 and Chrome 74.0.3729.169 on a Mac:
