Song titles

We have successfully included the new song titles for most languages, although there are still a few in which they are not yet available.

Find out which languages still need to be updated here.

Public Talks

Enhancements have been implemented in the GUI to simplify the process of adding a public talk outline to the assigned talks’ selected speakers list. These windows now use a Hamburger button. For example:

Also, these windows have been updated to indicate if the selected outline has any official media:

New Dependencies

New MSA Tools (.NET8) console application implemented: This includes the original Outlook Calendar Sync functionality and more. The original Outlook Calendar Sync console application has been deprecated.

  • .NET Framework 4.8.1

But no need to worry, as the installers will automatically download and install them if required.

Several bug have been resolved:

  •   Wrong description is saved in the assignment history for the 4th student item.
  •  Publisher Database > Import from CLM Explorer > Bug fixes
  •  Publisher Database > Import from generic CSV > Bug fixes
  •  Right-click > View > View page source.
