Does any body know how to get the latest CHANGE LOG for the developmental versions @ the ftp site?
The latest one I found there was for 3383-3377 dated 5-4-2017.

I have downloaded n installed, but am curious as to what has been changed?
I'm using M4 for my lathe n not sure if there are any updates for that.

ThanX MegaMoog
