It contains a number of critical bug fixes including -
  • Data is lost while editing (typing) in browser when .NET version 4.7 is installed.
  • Custom thematic templates from previous versions copied in thematic templates directory are not loading.
  • Loading a MapBasic tool for the first time adds a menu into the LEGACY tab. Closing the tool removes this menu but reloading the tool fails to add the menu again in the LEGACY tab.
