Hey Jamf Nation!

The Jamf Pro 10.27.0 beta contains many new features, fixes, and enhancements that we are excited to share with you!

  • Azure AD integration: We are very excited to add Azure AD as Cloud Identity Provider in Jamf Pro, enabling customers using Azure AD to scope and search against users.

  • Cloud Distribution Point Failover We’ve heard you Jamf Nation, and we’re happy to share with you that in Jamf Pro 10.27 Beta you will be able to configure a Cloud Distribution point to be a failover for your on-premises Distribution Points.

  • Shared iPad improvements: We have made a number of improvements to the administration of Shared iPad. Admins can now set the maximum number of resident users that exist on a single iPad.

  • Composer enhancements: You can now configure how macOS prompts users about installing Rosetta on Macs with Apple silicon based on the types of executables (Intel-based or Universal) in packages built with Composer.

  • User experience improvements: We have made a number of changes both seen and unseen. We've worked to address the need to occasionally clear the browser cache post-upgrade and made improvements in the Departments settings page.

As always, there's a lot more to this release which is covered in the release notes!

This is weird, I login to the 10.27.0 Beta and the version shows 10.26.1.

@ian.hansen ... Just to validate, due to Apache Tomcat Vulnerability CVE-2021-24122 that was just released. Is 10.27 upgrading to Apache Tomcat 8.5.60? This will address the vulnerability. I'm sure as normal, the latest version of Apache is installed, just clarifying since I haven't installed the Beta version yet.

Glad to know about the Cloud Distribution Point Failover officially becoming a new feature with 10.27 soon.

Same question as above. Will upgrading to to the 10.27 beta resolve the raised apache tomcat vulnerability CVE-2021-24122, and if so are there any known risks related to upgrading to the beta?
