Mid October 2018

Each update includes style fixes to previously released apps and pages. Examples of 'style fixes' typically include updates so that elements of the page are not cut off, misaligned, or missing. We continue to update the visual styling in places where we missed it in previous releases. These updates apply to Cloud and On-premises Connections, unless otherwise noted.
