What is New in This Release?


The Following Defects Were Corrected:

1. This release corrects an issue with forced update of the DeltaV database from the VIM. There is an intended default maximum update interval from the VIM of 500ms. In version 1.0.11, this is dependent on changed data. Version 1.0.12 changed this to 500ms with message flooding of DeltaV. This is now corrected to update at a default maximum interval of 2000ms (changeable) whether the data is changed or not.
