    2. Update the Team Sessions web client to show login dialog only when the automated login process fails. In previous builds, the Team Sessions web client would request a login dialog regardless of whether the Team Sessions server was integrated with either a Domino or LDAP\AD directory. With this release, the login dialog will only be displayed if the server based ‘token store’ is not available (for instance, if Team Sessions is not integrated with the Domino directory)
