    Stability releases (also known as "minor releases") aim to solve existing problems in the current version. Like every stability release, they do not introduce new features; It is strongly recommended to apply these updates.

  • Updating an existing installation (recommended)

    Open your Administration Control Panel and navigate to Configuration > Packages > List Packages. Please click on the button Search for Updates located in the right corner above the package list.

    Updating an existing installation (alternative)

    Navigate to the downloads section in the customer's area, select the appropriate version and click on the Download Update button. Open your Administration Control Panel and navigate to Configuration > Packages > List Packages. Click on the tab Upload package and select the previously downloaded files and upload them one by one, the order does not matter.

  • Only significant changes are included in the list below, minor fixes and typos are left out.


    The version numbers behind the list items indicate the lowest version that was impacted by this change. All later versions include the same fix in this update too, or have already been fixed in an earlier update.


    These updates include a larger number of improvements of the phrasing, especially inconsistencies across our apps. Thanks to Dukemaster who spotted most of them out.
