Beginning with this version, you can perform many large-scale operations on very large files without running out of memory or needing to clear Undo state. Support for the Touch Bar has been added to various windows (applicable only to computers that have a Touch Bar, of course):
There are many more updates and fixes described in detail in the release notes.
