Jamf Pro 10.2 Beta Now Available!

Jamf Pro 10.2 beta 1 expands on the patch management framework by adding support for external patch sources. Software titles hosted on an external source can now be used for patch reporting, patch notifications, and even patch policies. Keep all your third-party software up to date and secure with both built-in and external patch sources.

In addition to the patch management enhancements, there is support for new user fields in Apple School Manager to sync back to Jamf Pro, a new DNS Proxy payload for iOS, and the new Approved Kernel Extensions payload for macOS. Finally, this release also focuses on bug fixes, and improving performance.

How to Join the Beta:

If you would like to participate in the beta program, please enroll at the beta homepage on Jamf Nation under My Assets. After enrollment, please reference our Release Notes for a complete listing of what is included in the beta build. Remember, this is a beta release. We strongly encourage that you not install this software in a production environment.

As always, the beta program is operated under non-disclosure, so please do not share any information regarding your testing in any public forum including the non-beta sections of Jamf Nation. Use the Jamf Nation Beta forums or contact Jamf with any questions regarding the beta.

Thank you to all those who participate in the program!
