What’s new in v9.5 to v9.5.3?
There was no significant feature additions in the last v9.5 releases. These were more transition releases in preparation for v10 to be launched in october. QAP v10 includes major changes in the QAP engine and includes significant improvements to the Customize (aka “Settings”) and Options windows.
Only the startup process had to be adapted for the v10 transition. v10 settings files are be backward compatible with v9 settings files.
For users who install QAP with the “Easy Setup” installation program
If whenever, after having upgraded to v10 (or a future release), you encounter an issue preventing you to use QAP normally, the release v9.5.3 will make it easier to revert to the previous stable version. You can download v9.5.3 here.

Folders Popup users
Folders Popup is the QAP ancestor. Its latest version is dated September 2016. Up to Quick Access Popup version v188.8.131.52, the Easy Setup installer included an option to convert settings from the “ancestor” of QAP Folders Popup in order to import them in QAP. In v9.5+, this option has been removed but you can install v184.108.40.206 as in interim release. Users installing QAP in portable mode can still import FP settings using ImportFPsettings.
