Version 12.1.3 - 21 Oct 2019
- New: Multi-value strings are supported in the Filter dialog by using the | (vertical bar) character as a separator. For example, entering 'google.com|fonts/' in the URL field would match against any URL that contained 'google.com' or 'fonts/'
- New: Added experimental support for Microsoft Edge (Chromium) by installing the HttpWatch extension from the Chrome web store. A full implementation will be added when Edge (Chromium) is officially released. See help file for details.

- Improved: Added a workaround for the HAR output from Chrome. It could add a 'SameSite' value to the cookie object even though it is not defined in the HAR spec.

- Fixed: Sometimes requests recorded in Chrome were not correctly displayed as being from the cache.
- Fixed: The Content tab did not display content for requests with a 304 response in Chrome.

Version 12.0.11 - 26 Jul 2019
- Fixed: Requests recorded in Chrome were sometimes not correctly displayed in ascending time order.
- Changed: Modified the installer to avoid a false positive detection from a small number of anti-virus products.

- Fixed: The Receive timing value was incorrectly reported in the Chrome extension and tended to be higher than the true value.
Version 12.0.8 - 28 Jun 2019

- New: POST Data has a selectable Text view that allows the underlying request body to be viewed, e.g. multi-part form data, JSON request, etc
