What’s new in version 5.12.9

Updated on Nov 30 2022

New and enhanced features
  • General features
    • Enterprise Auto Update policies
    • Zoom’s Enterprise Auto Update policies allow system administrators the ability to keep managed desktop client installations up to date in accordance with their own policies and preferences. These policies will afford administrators granular control over desktop client auto-update behavior and UI, giving them the ability to tailor the experience at a group level to meet the needs of a wide variety of user cohorts. The following policies are available with MSI, GPO, and PLIST deployments with version 5.10.6 or higher, as well as with Zoom Device Management (ZDM):
      • AU2_EnableAutoUpdate
      • AU2_SetUpdateChannel
      • AU2_EnableShowZoomUpdates
      • AU2_EnableUpdateAvailableBanner
      • AU2_EnablePromptUpdateForAU2
      • AU2_EnableUpdateSuccessNotification
      • AU2_EnableManualUpdate
      • AU2_DeploySpecificVersion
      • AU2_SetUpdateSchedule
      • AU2_InstallAtIdleTime
      • AU2_SafeUpgradePeriod
  • Meeting features
    • Enhancements to Closed Captioning notifications
    • When a participant enables closed captioning, they are prompted to select the speaking language that will be used in the meeting which will be applied for everyone. When the spoken language is changed, the participant will be asked to confirm speaking language before it is changed. The host and any user who has captions on are notified if speaking languages are. This requires desktop version 5.12.9 or higher.
    • Enhancements to Translated Captioning notifications
    • When a participant enables translated captions, they are prompted to select their speaking language (the language they will be speaking) and their translation language (the language in which they want to view closed captions). Additionally, all other participants in the meeting are prompted to select their speaking language, so that any participant who has translated captioning enabled can view captions accurately in their preferred language. This will not automatically turn on captions and translation for everyone; users must select speaking and translation languages in order to enable and view captions. This requires desktop version 5.12.9 or higher.

Version: 5.12.7
At the moment, v5.11.7 is in BETA. So don't bother with it unless that's what you want. You can't even download it yet directly from Zoom's website. But DO frequently run "Check for Updates..." inside of Zoom, if only because their auto-update system so far sucks. Let's hope they get it right soon. "Clunk Cluck" is never a reassuring sound.

v5.11.6 is a CRITICAL *MANUAL* UPDATE. The previous version of Zoom managed to BREAK its auto-updater such that it created a security hole that can be exploited AND it fails to update itself. *****Therefore v5.11.6 MUST BE INSTALLED MANUALLY. (o_0) What a mess. Just download it and DIY update it, AND TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS. There are several warnings about this situation up on the net. I knocked my rating down a couple points. Very bad.

Haven't used the app yet, for the following two reasons: - Why an installer? I understand that in some rare instances installers are inevitable, but tell me - why do I need an installer for a messaging / conferencing app? - The interface is not the finest (not particularly Mac-worthy).
