Installer 5
: Release candidate 5
Released: Thursday 12th of December​

Today we're happy to release Release Candidate 5 to our beta testers. This is yet again a bug update. One of the most important changes is that Installer now always runs as mobile, rather than escalating privileges during Installation.
This means lots of random crashes have now been solved. It also addresses some issues caused by yesterdays commits.

Two weeks ago, we released release cadidate 1. See for the changelog & release notes see
