Laser Precision
Lasers could appear to shoot through narrow surfaces.
Plot Colour
Plot discolourations were present on macOS, making parts of a plot appear slightly pink.

Some types of surfaces could import without normal information, causing surfaces not to reflect any light.
Version 23.0.17, released the 19th May 2017
Fill Lighting
Having fill lighting enabled could lead to crashes when attaching or detaching objects from motion fixtures.
