Zoom 5.12.8

Zoom recently issued version 5.12.6 of its eponymous video conferencing app with additions and bug fixes. The new version enables you to adjust the order of product tabs on the desktop client, enables screen sharers to preview the shared content other participants see by hovering the pointer near the floating toolbar, adds support for up to 1000 participants in end-to-end encrypted meetings, allows channel owners to designate up to 50 admins to a chat channel, adds Dutch language support, resolves an issue with GIF searches returning a network error, improves whiteboard performance with high numbers of concurrent editors, fixes a bug that caused older SMS messages to disappear, and resolves an issue regarding a network connection and sharing with AirPlay.

Shortly after this release, Zoom issued version 5.12.7 with some minor bug fixes and then version 5.12.8 with the introduction of Zoom Mail and Zoom Calendar Clients. The Zoom Mail Client enables you to access, manage, compose, and respond to email directly from the Zoom desktop app. Integrating the Zoom Calendar Client enables you to schedule new meetings directly in a calendar with an associated Zoom meeting. (Free, 82.7 MB, release notes, macOS 10.10+)

  1. Zoom has this unhealthy obsession with force foregrounding its windows and dialogs. I’d really like to see their Mac client at some point start behaving like a Mac app. Same goes for stuff like return/enter not selecting the default highlighted button in dialogs.
