Process Lasso v5.1 beta series (old)
« on: October 04, 2011, 04:04:13 AM »
Full change log: http://bitsum.com/changelog/pl/changes.htm

This build is brand new and the change log still needs sorting out (to remove beta2beta changes and other non-relevant changes). We are in the process of doing this. We'll have a new change log soon.

Basically, this build adds:

  • Energy Saver
  • Menu re-organizations
  • Several fixes and adjustments
  • Performance improvements
  • The full list is very long, see below thread for the complete list, or see revision history

v5.1.0.19 final
« Reply #8 on: November 19, 2011, 06:32:25 AM »
Final has now been issued. It is likely to be followed by another minor update or two as translations get updated and minor things are polished. However, it is good to go. Note that users of Central Europe (German speaking) and Japan will not receive update notifications at this time, though they will be re-enabled as soon as possible.
