I consider this to be a bug, but you may disagree:

In Excel Create tasks, there is now a new column called DataType. This column did not exist in 8.5.5.

The addition of this column is good, but the problem is that it is set to Text by default. So if you look a the image, the last 3 columns used to be written as numbers, but are not written as text. I have to go through all these tasks now, to change to number where appropriate. Users should at least be aware of this when they upgrade

Thank you for the feedback! We are sorry if this was not mentioned. Trying to automatically detect what data type user expect might be tricky and risky.
