So, if you have not already updated your preferred package manager, you should do it now to get the Substrate Safe Mode fix. There is, however, no information if the fix is available for the Windows users or not.

Moreover, the update also added support for Linux systems and introduced a CLI, called webra1n, which is an experimental web-based UI.
