Release Notes: Canvas Windows App

At the very end of 2015 we made a strategic decision to support 3 platforms for filling out Canvas apps.  Android, iOS and the Windows operating system.

Release Notes: New Functionality for the App Builder & PDF Designer

I'm not even sure where to start with this release! There are a lot of new things along with some enhancements to the user interface in our App Builder and PDF Designer in the spirit of making them easier to use. A number of these changes were done to make the controls inside the App Builder identical to the controls inside the PDF Designer so there is familiarity between the two tools.
