Closed Captions:

Sharing:
– Simplified sharing by consolidating the “Share secure link or Embed” and the “Share with Users and Groups” into a single share interface
– Added the ability to promote shared members within a Media Library to administrators of the media library
– Sharing with groups and users now use the same search interface and are threaded within the results
– Share link, embed code, and scripts are visibly more distinctive and now automatically select the link text on click

Removing Media:
– Revised workflow for media removal to allow for automatic deletion from all shared locations
– Removing media that is only present in a single Media Library will permanently remove the asset
