We are excited by the fact that when you upgrade to this version you will be on a standard version of LAS that is 100% under source code control. Unfortunately, in years past, with the prior management team, some sites had features that other sites were lacking. This is all being corrected with this release. Now, the good things that may have only been done in a few sites will be rolled out to all. [Full Announcement].
