  • Security fixes for more than 20 packages based on a deep-dive of CVE vulnerabilities
  • Improved Windows multi-user installations by providing more dynamic shortcut working directory behavior
  • Windows installers control their environment more carefully, which should reduce installation issues where menu shortcuts fail to be created

  • Developer certificate for macOS pkg installers is updated to Anaconda, Inc.
