I download the Mac Shadow beta to test the return of USB over IP for Big Sur.

However the launcher with this beta is apparently the old one (V4.21.8) and not the V4.22.5

Can you confirm when the new one will be available.

Just tried it again and now it’s good.

USB over IP on macOS Big Sur is still not working for me on this beta.
