What's new in this version:

- a regression with copying and pasting primers that include spaces in their name into Excel
- a stability issue when saving gels with 20 or more lanes
- an issue that prevented running SnapGene on Ubuntu 22
- Removed vector orientation controls for TA, GC, and TOPO cloning which did nothing and would be of limited value since these techniques only support a single insert
- computing contig assemblies on macOS
- an issue with simulating blunt TOPO cloning where the insert is used directly and a stability issue if the insert was flipped
- Convert spaces to underscores when encoding the sequence name in the LOCUS when exporting to GenBank
- stability issues when choosing primers for TA and TOPO cloning
- an issue that allowed the number of fragments in the overlap assembly cloning dialog to be reduced to 1 which would result in a crash
- a regression with using linear fragments directly in various cloning dialogs
- an issue with adding an open document to more than one lane in an agarose gel
- displaying transformation strains in menus on Windows
- an issue where the Golden Gate dialog would sometimes report an incorrect fidelity
- Added missing paid feature logos to some menu actions that are not available in SnapGene Viewer
- an issue where the TA cloning dialog should offer to add 3' A's to blunt fragment that is being used directly
- Improved display of mismatching bases when viewing an alignment to a reference sequence in dark mode
- the download link when attempting to import a Vector NTI Express database if Java is not installed
- an issue where documents were sometimes duplicated in the Window menu
- an issue that prevented showing separators the side toolbar
- Improved displaying secondary structures when using display scaling on Windows
- an issue where the commands to show or hide quality data for sequences aligned to a reference had no effect
