  • The customized string representation of parameter values in XY Pad is now shared with the host correctly.
  • Updating the value of a cursor from within the control's callback is now reliable in XY Pad.
  • No longer any potential crashes when trying to view the Host Automation tab with certain NKIs loaded.
  • Crash when trying to view the Infos (sic) tab of the Instrument Options dialog with certain NKIs now fixed.
  • Certain NKIs no longer trigger the "Really quit..." dialog every time they were closed.
