  • Finally fixing the problematic IE7/8 crashes

    Posted by: Robin Smidsrød 15. Sep 2011 16:44

    Today's update (b631845) brings with it only one change, namely the bugfix for the Internet Explorer 7 and 8 crash on Windows XP and Vista.

    The problems was caused by bugs in a third party library named jQuery. Upgrading jQuery to version 1.6.4 solved the problem, according to our testing.

    If you're still having problems after this upgrade we appreciate feedback through the normal support channels.
