As we tear out the last page of our 2020 calendar, and begin to observe the year-end holidays, we wanted to bring you a few gifts to unwrap that we hope will make life easier and give you the warm and fuzzy holiday feeling. So sit back, and cozy up with a warm beverage while we show you what our elves have been working on in our Brightidea workshop. Our Winter 2020 Update will warm up those ideas during these in-home holidays.
Brightidea's most recent software release took effect on Wednesday, December 16th 2020, 10:00 AM PDT.
For an overview of our Winter 2020 Update, see our blog post here. The following updates and improvements have been made:
