    @woland

    I have read and looked over the  release notes a few tones now. Congratulations on getting the notes together so thoroughly. I do notice a gap though, and that is changes to recording video to file. I for one would really appreciate an explanation of the changes and options currently    available in v3 concerning recording video files of active stages.

    Best Wishes
