        • Improved Microsoft Windows10 Pro 32bit/64bit support
        • Support resolution on Magelis iPC HMIBMU and HMIBMP:
                ○ 800 x 600 (SVGA)
                ○ 1280 x 720 (HD720)
                ○ 1280 x 800 (WXGA)
                ○ 1280 x 1024 (SXGA)
                ○ 1440 x 900 (WSXGA)
                ○ 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)
                ○ 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+)
                ○ 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
                ○ 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA)
Quality improvements
        • Improve robustness of HMSCU by preventing USB event file corruption due to the power interruption (which could be provoked by backing-up Event Log groups).
        • Improve robustness of HMSCU by preventing SRAM alarm file corruption due to power interruption (which could be provoked by backing-up Alarms)
        • Improve robustness of HMISCU (runtime) when using function block READ_VAR (of library PLCCommunication) for Modbus communication (thus avoiding loss of read registers).
        • Improve robustness of Vijeo-Designer by accepting also variables with specific or empty namespace attribute to be shared via SoMachine’s symbol configuration.
        • Improve robustness on HMIS5T: the connection via Ethernet to a controller will be reestablished after a temporary disconnection.
        • Allow to convert a HMI “with Control” into one without control within the Standalone version of Vijeo Designer.
This implies performing first an export from SoMachine into a Vijeo Designer vdz file, followed by the conversion within the “Standalone” version of Vijeo Designer, followed by the import of the new vdz file into SoMachine.
        • Avoid the dialog “Security has been set up on the target machine” (prompting for an user and password) when downloading an application via Vijeo Designer (“Download Target”), in case security was not set-up.
