GoTo Opener (v1.0, b467) Release Notes

LogMeIn Contributor

If you haven't heard yet, the GoTo products merged with LogMeIn! In an ongoing effort to switch to LogMeIn names and domains, we've made a couple changes to the installation process including the Launcher and Web Deployment Plugin. The "Launcher" application, which launches you into your sessions has been renamed to "GoTo Opener" for Mac (which now matches the Windows Opener). And with this newest version of the GoTo Opener app, the former Web Deployment Plugin is no longer necessary (the plugin will be removed automatically if you already have it installed). 

Highlights:

  • "Launcher" renamed to "GoTo Opener" (Mac)
  • Retirement of the Web Deployment Plugin
  • New log file and Registry paths (Mac)

What's New?
"Launcher" Renamed to "GoTo Opener" (Mac)

  • The newest version of the Launcher Service's app has been renamed as the "GoTo Opener app" for Mac users! In the previous release (v1.0, b459), this new name was only seen by Windows users. Note that the application itself (previously named the Citrix Online Launcher app) looks and acts in the same way as previous versions; it has simply been given a new name and has been updated to comply with the ongoing effort to switch to LogMeIn names and domains. (CAKE-1707; -1697)
  • As with all past updates to the app, when users update to the newest version it replaces the older version. This update will occur in the same fashion, but users will also notice the name change. When users install v1.0, b467 of the app, it replaces v1.0, b456 - which will also change the Publisher and Name of the application. 
  • Rollout notes:
    • The transition from "Launcher" to "Opener" has been ongoing for some time and will continue to be rolled out over the next few weeks. 
    • As of this release, all Mac users installing for the first time will install this newest version (v1.0, b467) and will see "GoTo Opener.exe".
    • In addition, some existing Mac users may also receive the newest version and see "GoTo Opener" instead of "Citrix Online Launcher", depending on their browser settings and whether the Launcher Service can detect the "Launcher" application already installed on their computer.
    • Over the next few weeks, new builds of the GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, GoToTraining, GoToAssist and GoToMyPC desktop apps will be modified to use the newest version of the application. Once users are on those new builds of the various desktop apps, any remaining users who still have the older version installed will update to the newest version and see "GoTo Opener" as well.

Retirement of the Web Deployment Plugin

  • The new GoTo Opener app will not require the use of the Web Deployment plugin (which helped the older Launcher app run properly), so when new users install the GoTo Opener app it will not include this unnecessary plugin. When future releases of the GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, GoToTraining, GoToAssist and GoToMyPC desktop apps switch from using the older Launcher app to the new GoTo Opener app over the next few weeks, the GoTo Opener will detect the Web Deployment plugin on users' computers and automatically remove it.

New Log File and Registry Paths (Mac Only)

  • As part of the ongoing effort to switch to LogMeIn, the new GoTo Opener app's log files on Mac computers can now be found at /Library/Logs/com.logmein.gotoopener. Previously, they were found at /Library/Logs/com.citrixonline.WebDeployment. (CAKE-1693)
  • In addition, the new GoTo Opener's Registry paths are now /Library/Application Support/GoToOpener. Previously, they were /Library/Application Support/CitrixOnline. (CAKE-1577; -1634)
