Hello,

[UPDATED] I added a few items to the release note below to better highlight changes where commands were removed, or modified.

New versions should be up on the FTP now. Connectivity kit check for update will find them. If your network blocks direct connection, the direct link can be found at "ftp.hp.com/pub/calculators/Prime/".

The high level information:

Resolved issues and changes excluding CAS

-----------------------------------------

1. Resolved issue with local variable initialization in a program with using a complex number

2. Renamed “Program” and “Note” into “AProgram” and “ANote” to distinguish better from variables “Programs” and “Notes”
