test pressure in ASME VIII div 2

Autopipe Vessel release 42.02 does not correctly calculates the hydraulic test pressure when ASME VIII div 2 2019 edition is used. The software uses the pressure test calculation indicated in ASME VIII div 2 2017 edition which is not the same of 2019 edition.
Infact up to 2017 the test pressure was calculated as the higher between 1,43 MAWP an 1.25 MAWP x Sa/St but starting from 2019 edition the first formula has been deleted.
So the design pressure is overestimated and the equipment thickness is affected.

I tried to rise a service support but it was not possible because the related page does not work correctly: it is not possible to select the product involved.
