  • New built-in "Voigt" and "dblexp_peak" curve fitting functions
  • ODR curve fitting is now thread safe and has built-in parallelization
  • Igor Filter Design Laboratory (IFDL), which was previously a separate paid product, is now built-in
  • Greatly improved the speed of creating and looking up waves by name when there are many similarly-named waves in a data folder
  • Drawing speed of graph traces on High-DPI displays under some specific circumstances is dramatically improved
  • Improved speed of displaying notebooks, help windows, and procedure windows
