OpenSesame 2.9.6 "Hesitant Heisenberg" released!

edited May 2015 in OpenSesame

I'm happy to announce the release of OpenSesame 2.9.6 "Hesitant Heisenberg". This is the 6th maintenance release in the 2.9 series. It contains many bugfixes and minor improvements, and is a recommended upgrade for everyone.

As always, you can get your fix from here:

OpenSesame 2.9.6 is the sixth maintenance release in the 2.9 series. If you are upgrading from 2.8.3 or earlier, please also read the 2.9.0 release notes.
