I feel really dumb.  Usually updates include pointing out what' new.
I don't seem to be able to find them.
Help, please.

Here below are a few of the changes if this helps which I hope it does.

Removed support for the Windows XP operating system

Added a cross platform Techsmith Recording format (.trec) that allows users to record on Camtasia (Mac) and edit in Camtasia (Win), or vice-versa

Added the ability to turn tracks off, which hides the visuals and mutes the audio on the track

Added a timeline context menu option to remove all empty tracks

Added variable speed playback to the MP4 video player

Added support for files recorded in AVCHD, if codecs are already installed on user’s system

Added the ability for a .camproj to default to the last-used Editing Dimensions

Fixed a bug where a crash could occur when logging into Camtasia's Google Drive Import/Export service

Fixed a bug where an HTML production with captions could not be viewed locally in Chrome

Fixed a bug where the webcam video and recorded audio could slowly drift out of sync (This still does for me if I record on my Extended Monitor). I hope they find a fix for this soon.

Fixed a bug where audio previewing could skip at stitches or splitsFFixed a bug where .mov files created using the animation codec would be unusable in Camtasia

Fixed a bug where users without Powerpoint installed would receive an error accessing Tools > Options > Partners

Fixed a bug where the Tools > Options > Partners tab could show the incorrect state of the Powerpoint add-in

Fixed a bug where a 'click to continue' hotspot could pause at the wrong time

Fixed a bug where media could still be moved onto a locked track

Fixed a bug where using 'split at all markers' would create an undo point for every split

Fixed a bug where callouts can look distorted when opening a Camtasia Studio 7 project in Camtasia Studio 8

Fixed a bug where Camtasia would hang when trying to update a media with a file that was restored from the Recycle Bin

Fixed a bug where SCORM reporting could be incorrect when using multiple quizzes in one video

Updated product branding
