Debug Scripting Console
To use the debug scripting display/evaluate view (as seen in classic Developer), in the Servoy Eclipse developer, while in "debug" perspective, click Window -> "show view" -> other -> ScriptDebugConsole.

Timezone Behavior Change
Important behavior change: by default, the property "servoy.use.client.timezone" is set to true.
Property description:
When true the client timezone will be used to convert to the server/database timezone. It is highly recommended to use true as default to always see the correct/same dates/times in all clients (regardless of their timezone).
Dates entered into the database in the past by clients in different timezones, without running with this property enabled, will be incorrect due to timezone calulation differences.

Known issues
- installer quits with error on machines running Java 1.5.0-b64
- text toolbar missing

Why don't you post a link to the download right in the announcement instead of asking people to try to find it on "the download page on the Servoy website (developer section)"?
