    I have noticed that BI does still do an update check when you start it, but I'm guessing it won't notify or offer to install it. We may find out sooner rather than later. Ken notified me of a UI3 bug today where Microsoft Edge (EdgeHTML 17.x) leaves H.264 streaming connections open after you change streams. It is kind of a serious problem (for Edge users) and likely will warrant another BI 4 patch. Which ironically, most users may never get because of this. Actually, no, this isn't ironic. This is exactly what I expected would happen if Ken disabled minor version updates for people with expired support plans.

    I can't decide if I'm happy they are dropping their own rendering engine, or worried they will screw up Chrome's by participating in its development.

    I noticed since I updated to 4.8.4.5, the CPU is higher than it used to be in the previous one.
    I always had my CPU at 18-20%, now it's 50% and sometimes more.
    I didn't do any changes except the update.

    I noticed (on all versions) a bit of a blurb or blast of audio when hitting the mic button out of each camera. It was as if the sound was what was left in the cam's buffer, not a BI issue seemingly. I wish the "talk" feature was more supported within BI. You can't bind a key to talk. Only placing mouse cursor over and clicking, or hitting mic in the BI Mobile app work. No third party JSON, etc, interface to this function. I have a microphone and I want a button to do the talking (thru an arduino com port, etc). That's really out of reach.

    YES. My update options are greyed out and it will NOT update.
