Build notes: 19.1 Pega Native Foundation

Build notes describe the changes that are included in each build that is created for Pega Native Foundation. Pega Native Foundation contains the operating system-specific injection technology for Pega Robot Studio and Pega Robot Runtime 19.1. By separating these technologies from the features that you use to develop solutions, the Robotic Automation development team can more quickly respond to operating system changes from Microsoft. For more information about Pega Native Foundation, contact your Support Representative by using the Pega Support portal.

Before you install one of these builds, familiarize yourself with the changes, new features, and resolved issues that are listed in the following table.

To download a build, see Download Pega RPA software. For information on installation and system requirements, see the installation instructions.

Summary of changes

The following table lists the changes that are included in the various Pega Native Foundation builds. The changes can include updates to the Native.ini file, which is the main configuration file for the Pega Native Foundation. The settings in the Native.ini file should only be changed under the direction of Pega Support.
