Invantive Basics is a generic library that can be used on Microsoft .net installations on Microsoft Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS and Android.

These release notes describe all bug fixes and enhancements on Invantive® Basics per released version. The release number consists of three elements: major version, minor version and patch version. The latest version is listed on top of the list, with older releases further down. Notes are listed per patch release for the current minor release. Changes from patch releases are bundled for previous minor releases. The release notes include all changes deemed informative for use outside the product development team. Refactoring, logging, translations and internal code-only changes are not included in these external release notes. A change is considered a bug fix when it solves a problem with previously released functionality. A change is considered an enhancement when the software change extends previously released functionality.
