Product revision: 146188
- Fixed fingerprint segmentation handling on NServer.
- Fixed issues on Android when stoping and starting app quickly.
- Fixed a number of minor bugs and issues.
- Improved performance of video capturing on Windows 10 and Windows Market applications.
- Improved NBiometricClient and MegaMatcher Accelerator communication when using old version of server.

February 25, 2016
Product revision: 145319
- Fixed VerifyOffline operation to correctly handle more than 2 NSubjects.
- Added additional operations support into NServer (template creation, quality assessment, etc.).
- Added new Android camera API for providing better performance in certain situations, as well as to eliminate some known issues with Android camera support.
