  • Hyperlinks in process notes are now clickable and open the default browser
  • Repository actions that need write access are now grayed out when a read-only entry is selected
  • Inserting an operator via Global Search will now correctly grant focus to the Process panel, so you can immediately use the keyboard to manipulate the operator
  • Added workaround for a bug in the Amazon Redshift JDBC driver so that it can be used now
  • Saving a process in a read-only repository now offers the SaveAs dialog instead
  • Repository location chooser (for opening and for saving) no longer sometimes appears as a separate instance of RM Studio in the operating system taskbar

Bugfixes
