· This version fixes a problem when viewing scripts in presenter mode. If a story script has more than one page, you can now move to the next or previous page by swiping to the left or right. However, you might have to swipe twice to move to another page in a story when you load it for the first time.
· This version also fixes some problems with queues set to refresh automatically, with updating the display in the app window, and with the marker feature.
