Version 3.0.7

Updated Frostfall detection for Frostfall 3.0.
It was possible to approach the Helgen area and enter the cave in the back side of the keep without triggering the Alduin flyover under very specific conditions. This would then result in some quest stages being skipped, which then caused the trigger detection to shut down. Once the trigger detection shut down, Tullius and Ulfric would not be enabled, which then blocked access to the Civil War. I if playing a Thalmor start, the Thalmor Embassy would not reset properly for Diplomatic Immunity either, which could then seriously break the main quest.

Version 3.0.6

Bandit start bounty location properties were never filled which resulted in no bounty ever being applied to the player for the hold the start location was in.
Starting in the Winking Skeever in Solitude did not properly trigger Roggvir's execution scene upon exiting the inn.
Starting with a Hearthfire house would cause certain upgrades to become unavailable or trigger dialogue claiming the player had no funds to purchase them. An unused script variable in the Hearthfire DLC was to blame for this.
Skeletons and Draugr were hostile toward vampires in their start locations and has been corrected.

Version 3.0.5

Bandit starts can now choose from as many valid bandit camps as there are in the game within Tamriel and Solstheim, with the following exceptions: Mistwatch, Nilheim, Trevas Watch, Ustengrav, Bloodskaal Barrow, Haknir's Shoal, and Hrodulf's House. Locations added by mods will be potential choices as well as long as they are properly configured.
Vampire starts can now choose from as many valid vampire lairs as there are in the game within Tamriel and Solstheim, with the following exceptions: Potema's Catacombs, and Redwater Den. Locations added by mods will be potential choices as well as long as they are properly configured.
Left for Dead starts can now choose any location in Tamriel or Solstheim at random as long as the destination marker is tagged with the MQ101HelgenArcher5 location reference type, and the destination marker is in a valid location record. Other mods will thus be able to set up locations for this without the need for any patches.
Sven and Hilde will no longer be outside their house eternally waiting for the Dragonborn to go to Helgen so their scene will run. They should arrive there as needed when the time comes now.

Version 3.0.4

WhiterunStablesScene3 fix from USKP 2.1.3 carried over.
The failsafe trigger box should not be active if the mod was installed into an existing save that is already past chargen.
The objectives for A Second Chance are not completed properly if the vanilla start is used.
Added bShowTutorials=0 to the ini file fragment to turn off the remaining tutorial prompts that were not activated by scripts.
Navmesh blockers should now get properly cleared when starting in a Hearthfire home. Bethesda's testing script was not disabling the one in the main hall.
Two unknown facegen mesh files have been removed from the archive.

Version 3.0.3

Forgot to generate the needed linked NPC refs for the plantable herb mounds.

Update: Jun 20, 2015 @ 12:44pm

Version 3.0.2

Dialogue condition checks for Shady Sam in Kynesgrove and Dragon Bridge had somehow been changed to check for Grelod instead, which obviously should not happen.
Journal entries and dialogue responses when looking for Sam were indicating the wrong days for when he'd be in Kynesgrove or Dragon Bridge.
Added some plantable herb mounds to Shoal's Rest Farm.
All starts in Solstheim will now set the boat up so that you can talk to the captain to ride back to Skyrim.

Version 3.0.1

The scene trigger and castle gate outside Castle Volkihar were overlooked when setting up the Volkihar start. (Bug #18872)
The sack and bed for the Raven Rock Dunmer start were not owned by the player.
Serana's AI override was not properly conditioned to keep her from leaving Dimhollow Crypt if neither of the DLC1 starts were chosen.

Version 3.0.0

NOTE: All Skyrim DLCs are now REQUIRED! Please make sure you meet these requirements before downloading this update!

Irileth's dialogue to tell her Alvor or Gerdur had sent you wasn't available on the vanilla start option. (Bug #18363)
Maramal and Talen-Jei will no longer be standing in the center of the Bee & Barb waiting for dragons to be enabled before their scene starts.
Inn Patron starts now include Markarth, Riften, Solitude, Whiterun, and Windhelm.
The Helgen lockouts have been removed for Helgen Reborn and Morskom Estate. Apparently at some point updates to those mods, or to LAL itself, have rendered them unnecessary. (Bug #18591)
Property owner starts never sent notification to the Hearthfire adoption system that the player owned a house. So if a new vanilla house had not been purchased yet in a second city, the game would not know there was already one available for adoption purposes. (Bug #18681)
As of version 3.0.0, this mod now requires all 3 official DLCs to run.
Mod specific checks will only log Papyrus data until after leaving the prison cell. These checks are only needed for starting the game so don't need to be looked at for every load.
Property start options were added for Hearthfire. You can now choose on of the 3 houses to start in.
Three new Left For Dead start positions have been placed on Solstheim. These won't be easy. It's Solstheim after all!
Raven Rock was added to the list of destinations to arrive by ship. Choosing this will treat you to the boat ride animation you'd see coming from Windhelm.
It is now possible to join Harkon's Court as a vampire lord.
Old Hroldan Inn has been added to the inn start list.
The Redguard start location has been moved north into the hills near Soljund's Sinkhole to avoid future compatibility issues with Shezrie's Old Hroldan Town mod.

Version 2.5.5

Missed a variable check on the bed script for Helgen mods. (Bug #18239)

Update: Nov 22, 2014 @ 3:01pm

Version 2.5.4

Added a small stable for the player's horse at Shoal's Rest Farm if they own one. The horse should stable itself when fast traveling to the farm unless you're riding it.
The vanilla start option will be blocked if Morskom Estate is installed due to problems with their intro video on the cart ride. (Bug #18132)
A failsafe trigger has been added to the prison cell to return the player there if another mod somehow pulls you out before you're able to complete a proper startup. (Bug #18133)
Matlara, Ingrid, and Vilod will now be explicitly disabled by LAL during the Helgen cleanup process because they can sometimes be found in the ruins and should not be there. (Bug #17118)
