Bundle Support during Release Phasing
Bundle support during phasing of 2018.1 is consistent with the support provided during previous releases.

Enhanced Language Support Available in Advanced Templates

Using the New Fonts

The standard templates in 2018.1 now use Noto fonts. If you use custom templates, you can either update the template source code to use the new fonts, or you can create a new custom template based on a standard template.

There are two types of conditions for the Sublist Action Group: the group's condition, and the conditions for each action in the group.
