Important and breaking changes

The logic controlling the default size for URL snapshots has been changed to prioritize quality instead of trying to match the exact layer size. This can affect existing URL snapshot bookings which may need to be adjusted to set a specific size (ie matching the layer's size) instead of the new default which is 1920x1080.

The server now requires .NET version 4.7 or higher. If install/upgrade is required, please do so before upgrading the server.

If you are upgrading from a version older than 10.8, make sure to read the release notes for all point releases in between, in particular 10.7 and 10.8. Read them carefully to determine if they affect your installation and if action needs to be taken before or after upgrading.
