Space Patch Information

NameDateSpace VersionRequiresObsoleted


This patch is a bug fix update. There are two new console type manipulation space calls to allow the console type to be read back and changed without restarting the space object. A bug fix for the damage repair function is also implemented in this release.

NOTE: See the information about S71115 for the changes needed to support the new console arrangements which are also in this release.
