* MAINT-2560 –  This feature was backed out due to problems. When I looked at the wiki it was still part of the release notes.

These are all small problem fixes that many of us haven’t noticed. Still, they are a substantive amount of work, which shows the Lab’s people are hard at work.

Also, some fixes are to code that tripped up the new build tools (those used to build the viewer). For those that want to compile their own viewers, this is a thing.

The  Experience Viewer version has moved to RC status. This suggests we are getting close to a formal release of Experience Tools. But, there is no way to quantify close.
