This release introduces a new privilege for users in a group called Can Administer Users. This privilege lets group members:
- Add, disable, and remove user definitions
- Reset user passwords
- Define user custom attributes and regional settings
|This privilege does not allow group members to update groups or the groups to which a user is assigned.|

This release removes the ability for the supervisor to act as an administrator of accounts. Data source, dashboard, and chart management for an account can still be performed by administrators and by users with the appropriate permissions, but the supervisor can no longer perform these functions.
