Morfik 2 - Service Pack 2.2.0.7

September 25th, 2009

Morfik service pack 2 addresses a number of critical issues and brings general refinement in key areas of the software related to Graphical Effects, Themes, Styles, Packages and Widgets. In addition, this service pack includes a number of critical bug fixes, as well as a number of new features that were not quite ready at the time Morfik 2.1 was released.

Please note that this service pack is a complete installation (and not a software patch to the existing installed version of Morfik.) You may uninstall previous versions of Morfik, however this is not required, and the new software can co-exist beside previous versions.
