Release Notes

Build 2.0.81.0

Features:

#7968: Support elevation as a subsequent command within the bootstrapper. First UI shows un-elevated, but clicking install elevates. (dotNetInstaller only)
#8005: Added a new os_filter type 'greater than' (+) and 'less than' (-).
#6289: Added a new setup bootstrapper, htmlInstaller, driven by an HTML-based UI engine.
#6618: Added #STARTPATH, #STARTEXE and #STARTFILENAME substitution variables.
#6955: Added #OSLANGID substitution variable, operating system language ID.
#6620: Added #OSLOCALE substitution variable, operating system ISO language and region (eg. en-US).
#6956: #LANGID and #LANGUAGE are always set to the value in the currently executing configuration. #LANGUAGE may be empty, while #LANGID will default to the operating system value.
#6604: InstallerEditor no longer needs a configuration file to link a bootstrapper and the configuration does not need to be saved before creating an exe.
#6798: InstallerEditor will display file names when embed files are missing during linking.
