Major New Features and Changes

Performance

  • Enhancement – Performance across the whole application has been greatly improved, e.g. saving in the VBS, running large reports, working with move projects and application start-up time. Portfolios of all sizes will see an increase in performance across the application. When comparing the 25 top used actions across the application between 2.36 and 2.37, these actions are two and a half times faster on average than the previous version. Below is a snapshot of the start-up and VBS action times!
