  • Revision-level files are changing: Previously-released files are carried forward to the new pending revision, and are checked out for modification. Similar to structure & source markups, file icons now signal whether the revision file is being added (+), changed (!), or removed (-). The Administrator Override system rule will no longer affect revision files. [879]
  • Item-level files and organization files no longer support check-in/check-out; you simply add and delete them according to previous practice. [854].
