Breaking Changes

The following breaking changes were made in Depence R3 and V:Server Version 4.100 or higher.

  1. The routing lines has been removed and replaced by different components in the LogicModule. The conversion is automatic here, but should be checked once in any case.

  2. The settings for the DayLight Module have been removed in the V:Server and are now also replaced by a new component in the LogicModule. The setting must be made manually again by you in the logic module.
