  1. Added: Support for Adobe CC-2020.
  2. Added: Support for MacOS 10.15 – Catalina.
    Versions earlier than 10.14 are no longer supported.
  3. Added: Custom JavaScript functions can now access the values of various uPlan elements, such as Recipient record values, Variable values and UserView record values.
  4. Added: New QLingo string function – CleanNumber.  This function allows to strip any characters from a string, leaving only digits. This is particularly useful for cleaning up telephone numbers and leaving only digits.
  5. Added: New QLingo string function – FindByRegExp.  This function keeps only the characters matching the definition of the regular expression.
  6. Added: New GetEnv uPlan function – GetEnv(“SplitPart”). In case of splitting a job, you can get the current split part number.
  7. Added: It is now possible to change XMPie’s automatic caching mechanism in the output stream, according to which reusable objects such as Graphic ADORs  are placed into the output file only once and are referenced for all additional records that use the same object.
    Now, if your Graphic or Text File ADOR will be unique for every record in the database, you can disable the caching mechanism by renaming the ADOR object to include .unique at the end of the ADOR name. Similarly, for reusable Text ADORs, it is possible to enable the caching mechanism by adding .reusable at the end of the ADOR object name.
    It is recommended that you change this automatic behavior only if you fully understand the caching mechanism, and the impact of the change.
  8.  Known issue: Legacy PDF production does not work on uCreate Print for MacOS. You can perform the production on the server.
