Important Update:
A structural change is implemented in this release of CAST Imaging to the Neo4j database in which the CAST Imaging data is stored, primarily to improve performance. This change requires that any existing data in the Neo4j database (i.e. applications imported in previous releases) is migrated to ensure that it matches the new storage structure. This migration process is applied automatically when running an in-place upgrade to this release of CAST Imaging (whether using a traditional Microsoft Windows install or an installation on Docker (Microsoft Windows or Linux) and you do not need to do anything, however, if you have uninstalled a previous release of CAST Imaging and retained the existing data to use with this release (or any future release of CAST Imaging) you must manually run the data storage migration process following the installation of the new release of CAST Imaging to ensure the existing data is correctly migrated. For details see:

Note: When running the upgrade to this release of CAST Imaging, the upgrade process may be longer depending upon the volume of data stored in the neo4j database.

Feature Enhancements:

Imaging views now open in a new tab as applicable.

The following actions open a new tab by default.

  • Applying Focus in a view
  • Switching Transactions from the properties panel
