  2. Pub website address now included in the guide (0745)
  3. First draft of NBSS/Perfect Pint export - they are still working on this so it cannot be used at the moment

Enhancements & tweaks

  2. Help page opens in a new window (0572)
  3. Application jobs are run immediately the application starts, not after a minute (0567)
