This incremental release comprises of updates to the app templates included with ArcGIS  AppStudio 5.4 for both  AppStudio Desktop and AppStudio Player. This update is focused only on the app templates and does not include an update to AppStudio, the App Framework, or the Cloud Make service. 

If you have an existing app built using one of these templates you will be required to to create a new app using the updated template codebase and then copy the appropriate properties and files (text, images, etc) to the newly created app.
