      ·         The default org master that is shipped with Span was updated.

      ·         Addressed a bug in the margin calculation (would cause an application error) when calculating margin for a position that was a net of zero.

      ·         Some concurrency issues were addressed when calculating margin in multi-threaded mode.

      ·         Some minor performance enhancements were made.
