  2. BITSACP now logs BranchCache status for every download started.

  3. BITSACP sets all timestamps in registry as UTC time based.

  4. Adds support for forcing the use of CCMTOKEN paths for ConfigMgr deployments is a Task Sequence BITSACPUSECCMTOKEN variable is set to True, TRUE or true. (Don't ask! ;-)

  5. BITSACP now uses the SMSTSDownloadRetryCount and SMSTSDownloadRetryDelay tasks sequence variables for retries and pause between retries before switching source location. Default is 5 attempts with a 15s delay between attempts.

  6. Adds support for BranchCache Hosted Cache mode via StifleR client.

  7. Improved logging, WinPE downlaods re not in the BITSACP_WinPE.log and for downloads in full OS the log file is BITSACP_OS.log for easier log parsing.
