The failure to copy this file was the cause of the failure to create the 'prismguest' and 'prismrs' users. By implementing a Windows call to temporarily suspend File System Redirection, the Erlang cookie was able to be copied

PrimsProxy is not converted to use the new Logger for 1.14.7 release. Native TTK was converted only because one or more tools, such as Reconfig Host Computer will remain in the native TTK for 1.14.7 as their is no web client yet for this tool. RabbitMQ and DB services logging remains as before as this is controlled by those products not by Retail Pro.

19015 Tax breakout in Prism Z-Out records incorrect percentage when different tax rates are used for one tax area. Now taxes are grouped not by tax area but by tax rate (same as in V9). So now X-Out and Z-Out will show tax breakout correctly.
Z-Out report designs should work with previously generated Z-Outs - it still be printable, but already generated Z-Outs still won't show correct tax break - there is no such info in Z-Out xml
20362 Z-Out Items Sold/Returned/Voided shows line items not quantities Items sold and returned are now shown by qty of item on Z-Out. Items voided are shown by line
