1.1.06 build 5011 (Changes since 1.1.04)
- Fixed playback issues when using Wowza Player in the Safari 11 browser.
- Disabled the autoplay feature in Wowza Player on all platforms to prevent playback issues in browsers that are changing their autoplay policies.

1.1.0 build 4655 (Changes since 1.0.10)
