Hello everyone,

The next version of Web Safety 8.3 is now in Release Candidate stage. We are actively using the version internally and plan to finally release it at the beginning of 2023.

The following changes are included into this version:
  • Active Directory Inspector pseudo proxy authentication is now completely discontinued. It is recommended to use Captive Portal Authentication instead.
  • Added Microsoft Azure Tenant Restrictions, proxy is now able to ensure that only tenants of your Azure Active Directory can sign in into Microsoft Office apps.
  • Added module to send license expiry notifications 10, 5 and 3 days prior to actual license expiration to minimize downtime.
  • HTTPS decryption can now contain admin specified list of Always Decrypted Targets.
  • Added ability to configure Upstream Proxy in Admin UI.
  • Added ability to configure the list of domains which will be skipped from the Traffic Reports.
  • Added support for Squid 5.7 in latest virtual appliance.
  • Virtual Appliance for VMware vSphere/ESXi is now created on ESXi 7.
The virtual appliance images can be downloaded from here:
Upgrade steps required are described in the Admin Guide. As always list of open issues is available on GitHub. Please do not hesitate to add more if something is missing or needs to be improved.

Next step is to ensure the application works as expected in Debian 11/RHEL 9, prepare and test the Docker image. Hope you will find this useful.

Best regards,
