Accumulated Changes in our Latest 2017 Test Release (20 Aug 16 - 2 Aug 17)

The major priority over the last 12 months has been to implement a work-around for the Windows 10 issue that emerged last year. The changes for this are all deep in the 'engine-room' of respective modules, and not readily apparent when you view the screens. However, you may notice when scrolling through lists, that it occasionally pauses briefly as it retrieves the next set of records. (For more info on this see: Windows 10 Issues)
