Introducing Workspace ONE Boxer 5.9 for Android

The VMware Workspace ONE team is excited to announce that Workspace ONE Boxer 5.9 for Android is publicly available.

To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, in the near future Boxer will be defaulting the key AppForceActivateSSO (bool) to true. Please make sure to test that your environment still works with this key enabled before we change the default. Please test Login flows, passcode, and copy-in restriction. More information on AppForceActivateSSO can be found in the Boxer Admin Guide.
