RELEASE NOTES V1.36

IMPORTANT NOTE

Microsoft’s recommended and supported browser moving forward is Edge.

We have decided to follow Microsoft’s guidance and would like to advise customers that Definitiv will no longer support Internet Explorer (i.e. IE11). This means we will no longer be supporting IE11 when we release new features.

Although current features should continue to function on IE11, we will not be able to fix any issues related to using this browser.

Therefore, we would like to advise our customers who currently use IE11 to consider moving to Google Chrome or Edge (if a Microsoft browser is preferred).
