Version History

There are two sources for information regarding changes between different releases of Common Vision Blox:

The Release Notes that come with every release of Common Vision Blox

Every Common Vision Blox installer installs a release notes file (ReleaseNotes.chm in all recent releases) in the directory %CVB%\Doc that contains a detailed list of changes that a new release delivers.

The Version History (below)

Starting with Common Vision Blox 11.02.000 the rate at which patch releases are published has been increased. Because each patch release only ever updates a very small number of files, updating the Release Notes with each patch release does not really make sense. Therefore the developers started maintaining the version history, a brief list of changes between patch releases.

:bulb: Tip: Activate notifications on this topic to automatically be notified when a new build of Common Vision Blox has been released.

:exclamation: Not all versions have been released for all target platforms and in all available flavors. If a specific version is not available in the respective download section it has not been released for that platform.

:exclamation:As we learned over time, Discourse text entries are limited to 32k. We will therefore split the version history into individual entries. This will lead to a rearrangement in that from now on the latest additions will always be found at the bottom end of this thread - which is probably a good idea anyway as Discourse always puts you at the bottom end of a thread you already visited…
