In non-geek-speak:
There are performance enhancements, bug fixes, and internal preparations for new features. :)
 
Some explanations:
  • We fixed a keyboard-device interaction issue that was causing a bluescreen error.  It was not actually a keyboard that was the problem in the case that was fixed but rather a touchpad that acts like a keyboard.
  • WSA deals with missing fonts better now than it did before.
  • JAWS is an accessibility program used by visually-handicapped people to read their screen aloud for them.  We had been having some issues with it which should now be resolved.
  • Scanning archives like zip files, rars, etc. doesn't take as long as it used to.
