In this release we have added support for barcode scanning using Data Intents on CipherLab mobile computers. We have added popup effect/inverse color effect to toolbar buttons that are pressed and we have corrected a problem with auto-logon in the 5250 emulation. There are also other minor corrections and improvements in this version.
