Improvements and fixes
- If an attendee is added to a meeting occurrence, and the occurrence is closed without saving changes, the attendee will no longer be added to the meeting series because unsaved changes are discarded for both the occurrence and series.
- In OS X 10.10 and later versions, parentheses for negative numbers that use the parentheses format were not shown, and the number was not formatted as expected. This issue was addressed, and negative numbers now have the option for parentheses-enclosed negative values.
