There was a bug in v1.12.0 which means the new Open Recent window was shown even when there were no recent files to load. This could be a bit confusing, especially at start-up. This is now fixed. Apologies for any inconvenience.
There is now also a toolbar button for Open Recent.
As the bug fixed is minor, and mostly affects new users you might choose to skip this release.
You can find out more and download the new release from the release page:
