Here's the full NEWS file entry for this release:
Changes in 1.2.37 (2018-11-18):

+ Fix export of splays. Patch from Thomas Holder.
+ Fix KML export to avoid invalid geometry when a tube intersects itself.
Patch from Robert Jones.

current releases of Tunnel. Reported by Becka Lawson, Wookey and
* Fix some German translations. Patch from Thomas Holder.
* (MacOS X version): Fix aven-create-app to not delete converted icons.
Typo spotted by Robert Jones.

optional, as that information may not have been recorded, and to align with
therion's team command.
