Leda is the latest entry in our quarterly rollup series. It branches off from our main rolling Voyager development into a fixed target for our partners to qualify and build upon.
Like Comet's previous recent quarterly software releases, "Leda" is named after a moon of Jupiter. Jupiter has a great number of moons and more are continuing to be discovered. When Leda was discovered as recently as 1974, it was one of Jupiter's 13 known moons. Today, Jupiter has 92 known moons, with the most recent discovered just this month (February 2023)!
The moon is named after the ancient Greek mythological figure from the "Leda and the Swan" story. She was the mother of Helen of Troy, a key figure in the Iliad and the Odyssey.
Coincidentally, there is also an asteroid named 38 Leda in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Comet used several codenames from this asteroid belt, but non-exhaustively, and we moved on to the Jupiter codename before reaching the 38 Leda asteroid codename.
As for the software, Comet 23.2.0 "Leda" brings 7 features and 12 enhancements, including granular single file restore for Hyper-V; bulk admin email reports; a Recent Activity email report type; quotas for Office 365 Protected Accounts; new Polish language support; remote browse for database Protected Item types; and more.
As always for a new quarterly release, there are two changelogs for 23.2.0 "Leda" depending on whether you are coming from the previous quarterly release or the previous Voyager release:
