    • Enterprise Server log shows passwords in plain text
    • On Windows7 64-bit the File \ Send Mail option is missing from Query. The code was rewritten so that both Query and Report Writer will check for the presence of MAPI configuration in the Windows registry. If it can’t find that, it looks in the win.ini for MAPI settings. Finding either of these will cause the Send Mail option to be displayed.
    • Support for Windows 8.1 added.
