Updates for week ending: 8 April, 2012

Slightly late this week, due to Easter.

There were several changes last week, some of which fell just after publishing the Week 13 round-up. Changes are always reflected in the Round-up page as soon as I learn about them, so always best to follow the links to that page for the most up-to-date news.

  • Cool VL Viewer rolled out (.7b in the case of Linux due to repackaging). This release saw the port of the Merchant Outbox support
