Re: Release 2.4.1

@joe, I have some custom modifications in FA 2.4 RC1. Is it possible to know exactly which files have been changed from 2.4 RC to 2.4.1 so that my custom modification remains intact.

Great Work FA Team

Re: Release 2.4.1


You could look in the CHANGELOG.txt file. It will give an overview what has been changed and the files changed. You should go back and start at the 2.4 RC release and look upwards

For detailed changes, you can also look in the Git repo on, branch unstable.

Re: Release 2.4.1

Hi, When we add/edit tax groups, it is checking all the taxes as applicable to that group. To replicate, try to create a new tax group and then select only one tax and save. Click on edit again and you will see all taxes will be applicable to this group.

Hope this info will help.
