This emergency release will address Issues Full Table performance where some clients are seeing time outs loading the table, a bug where Instructions fields do not show all the content, and a bug users can no longer link directly to the HelpDesk home page. Due to the impact on clients gaining access to their data either in the full table or Instruction text, these fixes will be deployed to production as soon as validation has been completed.

IM-1049: Loading times of the Issues and Change Controls Full Tables will be improved for all clients, but no changes or impacts on functionality

ZenQMS comprises a microservice architecture that breaks up large functions into smaller services. This reduces risk in the development and release process. As such this flagship release version is actually comprised of the releases of the individual services components. It is entirely possible for a component service to not change versions in a release cycle even if other components do. Here is the summary for this release.
