Rentec Labs Feature New features labeled as "Rentec Labs" are just leaving the "lab" (aka our software developers' workshop). A feature included in Rentec Labs has already gone through rigorous internal testing; however, since it is a big new feature it may have had limited testing outside of our offices. Once the feature has been in use externally for some time with no issues, it will leave Rentec Labs. More information on Rentec Labs can be found here: What is Rentec Labs?
