Application bugs:

 

The project team, with the assistance of many AT users, has identified
and fixed many bugs over the last several months.  The history of this
activity is distilled in the AT 1.5 release notes located in the
directory where the AT is installed.

 

All bug descriptions and actions can be viewed at:
https://jira.nyu.edu:8443/jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa.  New bugs can be
reported via the same tool or, preferably, by using the bug reporting
function within the AT application.

 

Thank you for your continuing interest and support.
