Helium Streamer 3.3 RC

Helium Streamer comes with a couple of new features in this RC release. Here are the most important news in this release:

  • User permissions
    Helium Streamer now uses the same permission system as Helium does. The permissions set on a user in Helium is used in Helium Streamer and vice versa. Not all permissions makes sense to support in Helium Streamer, but most does. You can edit permissions for a user from the Settings page.2017-11-09_2054_001
