Posted: 10:00:00, Thursday, Dec 10, 2015   Expiration: 18:00:00, Monday, Dec 14, 2015  

Blackboard released version 1.4 of the Blackboard Collaborate Launcher for the Mac platform. This desktop application enables the initiation of a web conferencing session without relying on the local system's Java. Users will be prompted to download and install an update by starting the application (e.g. Applications/Blackboard Collaborate Launcher.app). The maintenance release resolves a number of issues, detailed in the body of this announcement (click on the title).

Resolved Issues

  • Launcher now inherits proxy settings from OS X
  • Collaborate launch no longer fails after moving Launcher to Applications on Mac 10.9.
  • System Java is no longer prompted for update when Launcher initiates.
  • Mac Launcher V1.3 users no longer get a security error when trying to open Collaborate with the Original experience (v12) Web Conferencing sessions.
