2021-09-10, This is a hotfix release for password-only users

Enhancements

Bugfixes
  • RememberMe tokens are created again for password-only tickets. NOTE: users will need to login once again to finally get automatically online next time

  • Loginpage: Restore old behaviour of http://logoff.now to immediately log out the device as some customers are using this as an API. This comes with the downside that browsers showing previews of visited pages on new/empty tabs will trigger logoff.now and logout your device just by showing the preview page - so be warned when testing. A future update will make this configurable to revert this disadvantage for other users.
