The create person feature now allows you to specify a non-member’s address during creation.
Public, member, and group links for documents Feature Update Admin

Skip member form on registration change Feature Update Registration
If you are creating registration changes through the administrator module you now have the option to skip creation of the member form if one is configured.
Edit complaint close date Feature Update Complaints

**Bug Fix**
Catalog item prorated price Bug Fix Accounting
Previously the info button showing the proration amount on a catalog item would show as $0 if a percentage is used. It now shows the percentage properly.
Timeout during export login error Bug Fix Admin
Previously if your session happened to time out just as you were about to run an export you could encounter an error when logging back in. This no longer occurs.
Organization type categories Bug Fix Admin
Bulk adding and renaming of categories for organization type categories is now available.
Ballot search returns duplicate results Bug Fix Elections
Searches for ballots by registrant number could return duplicate results. This has been corrected.
Error detail report excluding some errors Bug fix Admin
The report to show error details could exclude errors under certain circumstances. This has been fixed.
Unresolved password reset report – last login Bug Fix Admin
The last login time for the member is now displayed correctly in all cases.
Withdrawing approved (not paid) renewals Bug Fix Registration
Unpaid approved renewals can now be withdrawn in bulk by administrators so that they can then be moved to another register.
Unapplied amount – declined payments Bug Fix Accounting
Declined payments shown on the payment search no longer show an unapplied amount in the results.
Allow reinstatements to be completed from the previous year Bug Fix Registration
Previously reinstatements had to be completed within the same registration year they were started on. This has been updated so reinstatements can be completed if started in the previous year to allow members starting reinstatement late to continue with the same form in the new year.
