    I noticed this – it was really unexpected. What’s strange, is you can still go to the URLs if you know them… the pages actually didn’t get stripped out, just the links to them. Strange.

    Thank you for information. I can find corresponding note in Release Notes for 4.0MR3 patch 4 only. Weird.
