Version 2022.4

The latest software update from DF Studio is now being deployed to all accounts. This version includes metadata improvements, along with visual updates, workflow enhancements, and resolutions to minor performance issues. As always, please reach out to DF Studio’s support team with any feedback or questions about this update.

  • The Storage report now provides an asset count as well as a measurement of the total storage used.

Security & Protection
  • User accounts will now require verification any time the e-mail address is changed.
