What is New (Change Log) - Sierra Chart

What is the control bar, and what's new about it? I'm on 1267 and afraid to upgrade without fully understanding what was changed.

Can anyone explain or post a screenshot?

Briefly, there is no Status bar anymore. You can see chart values in CTV only. CTV can be horizontal or vertical and can have fixed position on any charts. New Toolbar may be added to detached chart windows.
Here is general info about that
New Control Bar to replace ToolBar and Status Bar - Support Board - Sierra Chart

The attached screenshot is showing chartbook and detached chart with new Toolbars on both.

OK thanks, I never used that anyway -- that part of the app is always minimized for me as I only use detached charts (if I've understood correctly).

The Status Bar that contained the OHLCVBA and the green/red connection indicator has been removed.
The green/red connection indicator is now included at the end the Tool Bar buttons.
The OHLCVBA is available in the Compact Tool Values Window, which is now configurable to stay with the chart, or can be dragged anywhere, and can be made vertical or horizontal. The pic shows the horizontal version parked at the top of the window. The background color is the same as the chart background color.

Then nothing to worry about. But I wouldn't upgrade my main system until they complete the development. I've installed new versions on my laptop just to see what's new.
