The latest update of Altium Designer 17.0 is now available for download. You can install version 17.0.9 (build 563) from the Download section of the site or update in Altium Designer 17.0 (DXP > Extensions and Updates).
Our main goals for this update were to improve stability, resolve performance issues with loading PCB files, and fix the crashes that occur the most often. Consequently, bug fixes for other issues were postponed to the next update (17.0.10).
