  • The permission "Edit/view site model attributes" has been renamed to "Edit/view site model custom attributes" for clarity.

  • Incomplete bundle downloads are now shown as failed downloads by the web browser.


  • This release contains security improvements.

  • Panoramas exported as an .e57 file with Crop & Download have valid coordinates.

  • If the panorama budget is exceeded, an error message suggests clearing space or an upgraded subscription.

  • Secondary view is no longer expanded when a mouse button is held down.

  • Improved stability of crop & download with large point clouds.

  • Fixed POI external content links and embedded frames for guest users.

  • All measurements receive random colors when you select Apply random from the color picker.

  • Adjusted the E57 panorama extraction to better support panoramas with lower resolutions.

API Breaking

The following information is only applicable if you have API connections with NavVis IVION. There are changes to our NavVis Frontend and REST APIs. The main changes are the new endpoints:

  • Create Draft: Used to start working on a site that is hidden from the end user.

  • Publish Draft: Used to implement changes once they are ready and replace the original site.

  • Discard Draft: Used to discard changes applied to the draft version that are no longer required.

  • Poll for Job status: Displays information on Created, Published or Discarded operations.
