    Hey Guys,
    First of all, thank You for the updates! I have few requests/questions:
    1) Every time you release platform hot-fix, you do updated all test library objects by setting new date/time. Even if object does not contain any changes within. It causes some inconvenience while working with source control systems. Could you please the same version management rules for the test library objects, as you do for the application objects?
    2) Could you please elaborate more what’s behind “380983 NST health improvements.” and how important these fixes are?
    3) I have noticed that you are releasing updates for “navsip.dll” file (at least you updated it in CU11). Do we need to update it as well? I see no word about this file in your manual “How to install a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 cumulative update” (,en-us,3109325)

    Best Regards,

    I tried to request this hotfix several times now but did not get any e-mails (I tried different addresses and also checked junk etc.). Is there another way to get this update?
