Hi Roman,
Both the referred new features appeared in OCCT 6.4.0 and were documented in relevant Release Notes (and corresponding sources undoubtedly):
- Possibility to show gradient background: page 10
- The new approach to the visualization of 2D layer presentations with LayerItem class: page 9
So, be a little bit more careful in the future ...

Hi Forum supervisor,

What I meant by 'undocumented' is developer documentation - Visualization User's Guide.

Not meant to blame anyway, sorry if it felt that way.
