Session time-out
If your session during the browsing of a results list is idle for 20 minutes, a message will appear on your screen and you will be taken back to the first page of that result list. You can then continue working with your result list. You now no longer have to restart your browser.

The wild card rules are now identical for searching in both the worldwide database and the EP database.
The ? wild card mode has been corrected to allow 0 or 1 characters.

RSS local handling
The RSS feed function has been enhanced so that it can also handle the French and German languages on the French and German interfaces.
