IMPORTANT – please read first:
1) This is a minor update but it isn’t a patch – it is only a full installation (a patch will available in early January). If you intend to download and install this file but already have a previous version of Jigsaw installed, make sure you back up your Userdata folder and all the files in it first. This installation file will automatically first completely uninstall any previously installed Jigsaw version, including all it’s projects and charts!
2) This is a very large download, and temporarily we suggest you do not have any videos running in a browser (such as Internet Explorer or Chrome), or be doing a lot of internet browsing in webpages, while the download is in process. This is only a temporary measure – we will be remedying this issue in January 2017.
