Release 2021.09 Overview: 

In this release we are excited to announce the availability of several convenient new management features that further empower Org Admins, and the ability to better protect access to Rev Live streams using BeBop Link security.  

We are always hard at work to make sure that the BeBop platform is performing flawlessly on all of the clouds that we support. We continually look to improve the creative user’s experience on BeBop, often looking deep to address software issues that impact users regardless of the source of the issue.  

In addition to the improvements highlighted below, we are constantly maintaining and optimizing our underlying platform technologies to provide the best and most secure experience for our users.
