Fixed
Reintroduced the "Update Mode" heading under Vision > General Project Properties.
Designer
Fixed
Fixed an issue where the Multi-Instance Wizard would load parameters from the wrong provider.
Designer
Fixed
Fixed an issue where display scaling would cause some visual issues with the designer's login screen on Windows systems.
EAM

Fixed
Fixed an issue with OEM Locked project conversion on upgrade.
Scripting
Fixed
There is now validation that prevents the usage of system names during the creation or renaming of a script or package. If there is a clash of a script or package name with a system name, the gateway will now start/restart and throw an error in the logs.
Scripting
Fixed
Fixed an issue where tag reads from a 7.9 remote tag provider pointing at an 8.0 tag provider would fail if called from the gateway scope.
Scripting
Fixed
Fixed an issue where auditing context would not be automatically provided when using system.util.audit() from Perspective.
Tags
Fixed
A managed tag provider that has been shutdown will lead to issues if a new instance with the same name is retrieved later. [SDK]
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where making a change to a default legacy simulator programs would result in bad quality on existing subscriptions.
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where Derived and Reference tags in UDTs were retrieving full tag paths to the UDT definition instead of relative tag paths when browsing for member in the same UDT.
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where wildcard subscriptions wouldn't work with Remote Tag Providers.
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where the "Max Time Between Records" setting on 7.9 tags did not upgrade properly to the 8.0 "Max Time Between Samples" setting.
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where an incorrect overlay was used when a tag is set to read-only.
Tags
Fixed
Fixed an issue where folders added implicitly through the system.tag.configure or system.tag.importTags scripting functions were not marked as "started", resulting in issues when trying to restart tags below them.

OPC-UA

Client
Fixed
Fixed an issue where OPC client connections would fail after a gateway restart in cases where the Discovery and Endpoint addresses were identical.
Gateway Web Interface
Feature
Added a Trust Certificate step to the OPC UA discovery wizard.

Perspective

Components
Fixed
Dropdown Component - the value displayed in a Dropdown Component with multiSelect equals false no longer has a different background color than the rest of the component. This was a regression in 8.0.13.
Components
Feature
New embedded view component: Accordion Component. The Accordion Component allows the embedding of expandable/collapsible views which can be toggled with a click or a tap of their headers. The headers may contain text, or be their own views for further customization.

Components
Feature
SignaturePad Component onSignatureSubmitted component event has a new event argument: signatureFile.signatureFile has properties for name, size, as well as functions for copyTo(filePath) and getBytes(). These new properties, and functions work exactly like the File Upload Component's onFileReceived component event's event.file.
Components
Fixed
Fixed an issue where a File Upload component placed in a flex container was preventing other components from being placed added in the same flex container.
Components
Fixed
