An unforeseen character limitation in the Comment field of SCCM's package properties was surpassed, rendering the UIU-created packages uneditable unless the comment was shortened.
As of the UIU Plug-ins 2.0 (v184.108.40.206), upon creation of SCCM packages by the UIU Plug-ins 2.0, the comment included was reduced to a quantity less than that of the undocumented character limitation.

User cannot create a new UIU Repository using the “Update Repository” function.
Fixed a bug that was preventing the Repository Manager from being able to properly generate a UIU Repository from an empty (or incomplete) repository.
The UIU 5 Console was not properly inserting quotes for UNC Path names that included a space, causing UIUPrep to fail during deployment.
Fixed an issue that did not wrap deployment wizard UIUPrep commands in quotes, which could lead to deployment integrations not being able to invoke UIUPrep for users whom have UIU Repositories on UNC Paths that include a space in the path.
WinPE Boot+ provided all boot-critical drivers, regardless of OS and architecture which could create issues when booting.
The WinPE Boot+ feature now analyzes the provided .WIM image and only boot-critical drivers that meet the OS version and architecture are included. This should make the process of using WinPE Boot+ much faster, as well as much more reliable.
On deployed machines only, the Log folder & UIU data folder have been migrated from Program Files to ProgramData.
UIU log files on deployed machines are now located under the ProgramData\UIU directory. Additionally, resources needed by each application are extracted/placed in the ProgramData\UIU\bin directory (temporarily). Program Files is no longer used for any resources or logs.

Phase 1 of the cleanup and refresh of UIU-supplied Intel graphics drivers. We've removed drivers that would not be selected through the Windows enumeration process and added the latest Intel graphics drivers to accommodate newer hardware. As graphics drivers are typically large, this reduction in total UIU-supplied graphics drivers will decrease the UIU Driver Database by approximately 2Gb in Phase 1. Please contact Big Bang Support if you notice aberrations in graphics support on Intel hardware or if you require additional information on reducing the footprint of the UIU Repository.
