June Release

We have had a major overhaul of some of our internal processes so this release includes a larger than normal list of minor feature requests and small bug fixes.


Our new processes are designed to improve the flow of minor changes that often fall down the priority list in favour of bigger feature requests. We are also dovetailing these new processes into our existing Sprint cycle so that we can continue to target them in the future.
