Release Notes

KLANG releases major updates between 1 and 3 times per year introducing new features. A major version step is e.g. from 4.x to 5.x or 5.3.x to 5.4.x. KLANG:app and KOS will be released at the same time.

However, there are minor updates (e.g. 5.4.x to 5.4.y) on both KOS and KLANG:app containing important fixes e.g. due to changes in operating system updates, new tablet or smartphone devices, new versions on third party hardware, e.g. DiGiCo consoles. These will be released as quickly as possible in smaller chunks. Therefore, there might sometimes be a couple of new app version per months reacting to those changes and ensuring the best user experience possible with the latest version.
