This release updates Burp to include a security fix in the BlazeDS library that Burp uses for parsing AMF messages, and disables AMF support by default.

Burp's cookie jar has been updated to support the cookie path attribute.

The functions to save and restore state now include options for handling the unique identifier that Burp uses to track interactions with Burp Collaborator.
