Turbo Client and VM Updates, May 18

Users will be automatically updated to the latest version of Turbo Client and VM.

New and Improved

This update includes the following new features and improvements:

  • Turbo will attempt to encrypt data using the stronger TLS 1.2 protocol by default when configured with a secure hub.

  • Turbo performance has been improved on systems with Microsoft .NET 4.7.
  • The performance of the turbo logs command has been improved.
  • The turbo installi command creates Start Menu shortcuts with friendlier names.
  • Portable Application EXEs always use the VM version present at build time unless automatic updates are enabled.
  • The Firefox browser extension starts the Turbo Client when a user attempts to run an application from the Turbo.net website.
  • When executing turbo run with the --enable-sync flag, the container state will be pulled from the hub before starting.
  • The Visual C++ Redistributable 2008 layer is no longer a default dependency.
