Most notably, the "choose-your-own-abbreviations" feature now includes all common names and alternate names from groups and subspecies. This is very helpful for extended taxonomies that assign common names to subspecies - this is very common practice for reptiles and butterflies, for example - but also makes it faster to enter some existing bird forms (e.g., "Cayenne Tern", which a subspecies of Sandwich/Cabot's Tern).
Other changes and fixes include:
- The fix in 13.2 for export-as-spreadsheet with subspecies was only halfway there; it should now be working for IOC users too.
- Some users importing from Birdbase would have locations with empty names; that's now fixed.
- Users who imported content from sources with emoticons could have entirely broken sightings files! They'll now be saved and read without issue.
- Bulk deletes would sometimes produce an error message (though the bulk delete was correctly performed).
- Courtesy of Steve Clark, the Australian state of Victoria now has a semi-official checklist.
(If you're wondering, 13.2.2 was never released.)
