Changelog

Robocorp App (3.0.2)

September 24, 2020

Application name changed from Robocloud Worker to Robocorp App.

Even though this is a major version update this does not break backward compatibility. In different operating systems the application name change caused problems so a major version upgrade had to be done.

For MacOS users the auto-update notification is unfortunately not working correctly for this major version update so a more direct guide is:

  • Open Finder and find the Robocloud Worker application under the Applications folder.
  • Right-click on the application name and select Move to Bin.
  • Download and install the new app from here

Windows users can just get the new installer and run it.
On Linux the AppImage name changes.

Updated uninstall and install guides available.
