A few comments about the current state and evolution of the project:

- This Oath2 library does not support Implicit Grant Flow, as it will be deprecated in Oauth 2.1 due to security concerns.
- PKCE (Proof-Key Challenge Exchange) workflow is implemented and used by default. It is highly recommended not to deactivate it, as it will become a mandatory feature when Oauth2.1 becomes the norm.

- As of this release, the library currently supports only redirections on port 80 (http) but has been built in a way that future updates should be easy to change to port 443 through https connection. This is because the project is maintained in LV2013 and TLS support was added in LV2020. However, an OauthClient class has been created to act as an "interface" which should allow injection of a TLS-secured client in later versions of LabVIEW (distributed as an extension addon to this library)
- This library currently supports Authorization tokens, but not the ID Tokens for OpenID extension. It should be part of a future upgrade, once support for JWT (JSON Web Token) has been added to the library.

Release Notes

1.1.0.4 (May 01, 2022)

- Support for Harvest App integration (time tracking and invoicing)
- Added support for reverse proxy (when localhost is not supported by Oauth server)
- Added a hook to inject a TLS-supported connection through an override of the OauthClient client (allows extensions to inject a TLS-enabled connection)
