- Resize support for tabbed preview screens.
- Backward compatibility with all released platforms and device plug-ins
available from Forum Nokia.

disable, Switch between landscape and portrait and resolution drop-down list
for quick selection.

- "Export screens to PDF" button, on the tool bar, exports all portrait or landscape screens
of the active theme into a PDF which contain embedded preview bitmaps in 100% resolution
with Screen names and other metadata included.
- "Switch background colours" button, on the tool bar, provides for improved viewing of
graphics in editor, component view, and other views by enabling the skin (underlying
background) colour of the tool from white to default the system colour.
- Component store has been renamed to component gallery.
- Navigation, outline and component gallery views were not part of default perspective as
per user feedback.
- Updated Symbian ^3 and 5th edition plug-ins.
- Carbide.ui is migrated from Eclipse version 3.5 and Java 5 to Eclipse version 3.6 and Java 6.
