What's New In v1.3

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Its been a long time in the coming, but we have finally shipped v1.3. And I have to say we are pretty proud of this version, as its been the most tested and bug fixed version to date.

There were so many changes in v1.3 it's been hard to keep track. But due to some of the changes, this version doesn't have an auto upgrade path like v1.1 to v1.2 had. The installer had a massive rewrite to which made the auto upgrade difficult, as well as a lot of changes to the database and config files.

However, as always you can manually upgrade. We keep track of all changes made in the following file in the solution (Just scroll down to v1.3) Database > VersionDbChanges.txt.

Here's a list of most of the changes
