ShortPoint SPFx v6.6 has been released

We are thrilled to announce that we are releasing ShortPoint SPFx 6.6 for Office 365 & SharePoint 2019, if you have ShortPoint version or higher, you can upgrade by going straight to the ShortPoint Dashboard on your site collection, and click Upgrade and Re-install (as simple as that!), otherwise if you have a lower version than you have to Download and upgrade.
