Viewset Changes

This release doesn't include any viewset changes, but you should always perform a comparison of your viewset to the default viewset to ensure that you have any desired updates from prior releases.

In the very least, you should always review the Cart, Checkout, CSS, JavaScript, and local resource file updates when there are any. These are areas that can directly affect how well your store is performing.
