● Search Performance: For the speedup implemented in the previous build (R5551) to take effect, it may be necessary to perform the "Optimize SQL Query Planning" function in the Maintenance options in the Manage Catalogs panel. This should only take a few minutes on large catalogs. (To obtain the maximum performance from the R5551 optimizations, a Re-index is required.)
● Added: Set GPS Coordinates can now interpret decimal GPS coordinates from the clipboard and enter them into the latitude and longitude fields for you.  The coordinates in the clipboard must be in the decimal format (ddd.ddddd, ddd.ddddd) and can be negative or positive.
● Added: SFTP Connections - Added an option to force Key-Based Authentication.
● Fixed: PhotoShelter - multi upload session errors.  The errors occur when a second upload session to a different address is initiated. The errors occur with the first upload session still in progress.

● No macOS-specific changes were made to the build.

● Fixed: Unable to move/copy folders from the Navigator and Explorer window to the Favorites panel.
● Fixed: Opening server folders via the Navigator/Favorites, Open Contact Sheet… on the File menu, now correctly open in a tabbed Contact Sheet window.
● Fixed: Drag and drop opening of a server share folder as a Contact Sheet fails with an error.
● Fixed: FTP fails to upload claiming upload cache directory structure cannot be built.
● Fixed: Catalogs stored on the root of a disk can now be opened again.
