  • With the widespread growth of 16:9 monitors commonly found on laptops and, in particular, notebooks, the user interface and dialogue have been optimized for greater compatibility with this format.

  • Optimized file synchronization with inclusion of handling/conditions of umlauts, apostrophes and special characters in file names.
