At this time, there are no plans to promote version 8.2.3 to the Recommended Release.

Features and Improvements

  • No new features.
  • Adds support for macOS Ventura.
  • Resolves an issue where the IPv6 blocking feature would intermittently trigger NXDOMAIN errors when attempting to access IPv6 enabled websites.
  • Resolves an installation error (“...you need to install Rosetta”) on Apple Silicon machines. For clarity, WSS Agent for macOS has natively supported Apple Silicon since v7.1.1 and Rosetta is not required.
