NullReferenceExceptionin the Burst compiler when multi-dimensional arrays were used. The compiler now produces a correct error message telling users that multi-dimensional arrays are not supported by Burst.

Editor: ASTC texture compression should be platform and hardware invariant now (i.e. produce exactly the same results between AMD and Intel CPUs for example, which was not always the case before). (1307140)

Graphics: Fixed ACES filter artefact due to half floating point error on some mobile platforms.
Graphics: Fixed mip streaming for static batched meshes and use of CombineMesh API. (1329555)
HDRP: Fixed an issue where runtime debug window UI would leak game objects.

UI Toolkit: Fixed disabled state not showing properly after hierarchical changes were applied. (1321042)
Universal Windows Platform: Fixed word suggestion not appearing in the Windows On Screen Keyboard when editing an InputField or TextMeshPro control. (1332468)
