Not so good. Many scripts are broken now because of this.  :?

Yes, if you try and create a PL the zoom level is not included and it goes out to maximum zoom level.

A fix for this issue will be released in the upcoming versions.

Apologies for the temporary inconvenience and thank you for flagging this.

There is just an issue currently where if you click the plus button, then cancel, then click delete on an alt name, the animation of it disappearing but it's not actually removed from the list. You have to click remove a second time for it to be deleted. See screen recording below.




Also the changes made to the events UI really help to keep track of events when the list is really long, like in my city.

Overall really great and much needed changes made in this update.
 
 
EDIT: I have posted the bug in the beta WME forum
