* Test harness added to allow APS custom jobs to be launched from within FocusOPEN
* Rotate bitmap previews and thumbnails
* Simple metadata manager added to compliment the advanced hierarchical editor
* Support for bitmap group 0 which has the same size as the original asset but is generated in JPEG format (used for custom preview plug-ins).
* Asset Re-Saver application now supports -f parameter to be passed a list of assets to be re-saved in a text file (delimited by commas)
* CC arbitrary lists of users into messages sent to a given user account (for accounts that might be shared with multiple users)
* Default placeholders for thumbnails and previews where one cannot be generated by the APS (to replace the ‘unavailable’ icon)
* Default placeholder for asset types can be chosen from a given extension in the asset type manager
