I have a label on a field that displays a numerical value that is stored to two decimal places e.g. 21.11 (km in this case). In previous versions including the value in the label formula would simply display 21.11 for this example, or for 2.5 would simply display 2.5, or for 2 would simply display 2.

In 2.99 compared to 2.18 I now have the situation that 21.11 is being displayed on the label as 21.1099999999999999
Obviously I much prefer 21.11 as it is actually stored. I can see no reason why the label should be displayed any other way than the value actually stored in the field.
