3DXplorer 4.04 has come with lots of new features, that you can read here. Let's highlight some: load time reduced (including progressive loading), save your av login, interconnected 3D spaces that require no more login.

Also, the Online Meeting application has added a planning feature to manage meetings, and now you can create an URL that will only be valid for the meeting time, that may or not be password protected. Also added planned meetings, and meeting history.

To use the new release you don’t need to do anything. 3DXplorer is plugin-less.
