In Addition, the Online Manual has been brought up to date with the current 1.3 release. Currently, the manual is only available in English. We will be translating it over the next couple of weeks.

We have made several new fixes and updates to version 1.3, you can read complete details on what has been changed or fixed in the Development Updates forum.
