Important bug fixes plus new scripting and analysis functionality
2 Aug 2017

  • Security: Executing an elevated handler in a script: privilege was not getting dropped after exitting the handler

  • New scripting handler: URLCallback(window, webviewitemID, url) handler allows your script to examine links that are clicked or redirect urls that are provided by a server

  • Fixed a potential crash when using the escape key to close a window that has changes to be saved (Windows)
  • Fixed a potential crash when the server fails to provide preference information to e client (blob loading)
  • Fixed potential crash when the product entry window posts a locked.single user alert when opened
  • Scripting: ExitedField handlers that invoke UI will no longer cause a recursive call to ExitedField on the same field
