New Hotfix 4.0.2 Released

The new hotfix package was released and it is available for download. You can find the hotfix packages for appropriate .Net version in the Bugtracker (the orange box on the right). Instructions are included.
Please note: the hotfixes do not go through detailed testing and you should only use them if you need to fix some particular issue. All hotfixes are cumulative from the last Kentico CMS version. If you upgrade to a newer version (e.g. to 4.1, 5.0, etc.), the upgrade will also fix the bugs, so it's not necessary to use the hotfixes.

Bugs fixed in hotfix 4.0.2:
· Tree view - Word wrap option wasn’t applied
· Tree view - Expand sub-tree wasn’t applied if root node was hidden.
