You can find a detailed release note, including minor updates and bug fixes, here: http://www.innovasys.com/support/releasenote/hs2021.1

Dark Mode support in Light Templates

If this feature is enabled for browser help output the light templates will automatically adopt dark styles when running in modern browsers (e.g. Chrome, Edge, Firefox) when Dark Mode is enabled in the operating system (Chrome, Edge, Firefox) or in the browser settings specifically (Edge). As well as the standard template colors and styles, the colors used by colorised code sections are dynamically adjusted to ensure they are readable in dark mode.

Light Template library updates

The Light templates now use the latest jQuery 3.0.3 and jQuery UI 1.12.1 when targeting browser help output.

  

Compatibility

Compatibility with older versions

Installing 2021.1 will automatically remove 2019.1 (or earlier) if you have it installed.
