What's New from v16 to v17

I recently updated from version 16 to version 17.1.  I skipped the update to the first v17 release, hoping to avoid some bugs.  So far so good.  There is a nice video showing what's new in version 17.1 but I think these are only the changes from v17 to 17.1.  I am trying to find out what changed from version 16 to 17.  I know one big change is that more than one workstation can have access to a chart and transactions at the same time.  This is a big change, but is not mentioned in the 17.1 video.

I have called Softdent tech support and they have referred me to Customer Service.  Customer service tells me to call tech support.  They have sent me the v17.1 change log but nobody seems to be able to find the v17 change log.  I know when I got my v17 disk (not 17.1), there was a video included that I looked at but I no longer have this disk.  Can anybody tell me where to find the version 17 change log?  Thanks.
