Overall, a mix of small tweaks, some bug fixes in particular to automatic cert generation and keychain item handling. If you’re using NoMAD to pull certs, this would be a good update to do, otherwise most of the other changes are more minor.
Most of the changes are non-UI based. The biggest impact to the users may be the icon change when clicking on the icon as we use the dark icon to invert when clicked on. If you’re using custom icons, make sure you’ve set a the dark ones as well to allow for this inversion.
We hope to address our longest running issue, the lack of a Kerberos domain being set, when attempting to change a password for the first time. With 1.1.4 we will now write out a preference file to ~/Library/com.apple.Kerberos.plist with your AD domain as soon as NoMAD is launched for the first time.
An additional long-running issue is also addressed in that using the TitleSignIn key will work more consistently.
As mentioned above, if you’re using NoMAD to automatically pull certs, this would be a good update to install as a number of issues have been fixed.
