DisplayLink Releases v.10.2M1 for Windows

DisplayLink announced v.10.2M1 for Windows is now available.

Using this version of the software should work, but Targus has not fully validated this release with all Targus Universal Docking Stations or Targus Universal Docking Station Utilities. Users of Targus Audio/Video Configuration Utility should be vigilant in validating this release in their environment. Targus is currently planning to validate the next maintenance release.

New features

  • Windows 10/11 and DL-6000 series: adding modern standby on Ethernet interface

Because this release fixes Ethernet PHY changes driven by availability problems in the supply chain, it may be necessary to use this version of the software with Targus DisplayLink based (USB Graphics) Universal Docking Stations for the dock’s Ethernet to function correctly starting approximately in Q2 of 2022.

  • General stability updates and bug fixes

This release also contains a partial work-around for the USB Host Controller power control issues addressed in this Targus Application Note. Targus prefers that customers consider implementing all of the advice in the Targus Application Note and report experiencing these issues to their PC vendor.

Changes in 10.2 M1 Release

  • DL-6xxx: Ethernet could sometimes be disconnected for 1-2s when re-plugging a DisplayPort cable (VIFR504, VIFR731)
