Release Notes

Each release contains new features, enhancements to existing features, quality-of-life improvements, and bug fixes. All the items included in a given release are listed in the Release Notes, which are broken down by Platform and then Category. Additionally, major releases include Application Notes, which provide context and outline benefits of the highlighted features, enhancements, and updates to provide users with a more comprehensive understanding of their value.

The release notes for latest major version of each eoStar application are provided below. The eoStar Release includes eoStar, other Windows and Android apps, and any Web Services or APIs. Our iOS apps follow an alternate pipeline for publishing to the Apple store and may not follow the same timing or version numbers as eoStar Releases, so release notes for those apps have been separated into their own sections and archives.
