Measure, Portfolio and TurtleArt.Walter each week make a new version with some improvements, but some are bugfixes.
The others activities, I think that not have "important" improvements, except a better translations..

At this point in time there would have to be a significant reason to include a full activity update as opposed to creating a new dotted activity version with a specific fix.

As mentioned in Daniel's email the final release is currently scheduled for July 9th.  The final build therefore needs to be tested before that date.

We are looking for versions we know are stable, not the most recent bugfixes.

Do any of these updates have a particular fix you require or strongly recommend?
