Deprecated features and technologies

This section provides information about features, protocols, and technologies whose support was partially or fully discontinued, or will be discontinued in future versions of VuGen and VuGen.

Removed features

The following feature has been removed from VuGen:

  • TruClient Lite is discontinued (starting from version 12.63). TruClient Lite 12.62 is still available in the Chrome Web Store for a period of time, but will be removed in the future.
