- Upgraded handling of case suppression in calculations to include suppression of zero counts.
- Added a button to the matrix export dialog for easily updating the settings for creation of CSV (Excel) output files.
- Left-Truncated Life Tables calculations were updated regarding the exact starting age for cumulative calculations when using the Modified Product Limit stability criteria.
- MP-SIR referent rates created from mortality databases are not usable with SIR databases, and incidence referent rates are not usable with SMR databases.
