Revisions and Additions

Builder Handset Wizard
Now you can create a new working handset in just a couple of minutes! Really! Pick a handset, select a theme, choose activities and devices, which device(s) control the input switching and volume, and the new Builder Handset Wizard does the rest! When you're finished, you'll still be able to tweak and customize just like you always could. It only takes a few minutes to try, so what are you waiting for?

Onkyo-Integra Module Multizone Support
The Onkyo-Integra Module now supports multiple zones on 2012 Onkyo-Integra receivers and processors with multizone streaming capability. Now, somebody can be watching football in the den, and listen to Pandora or Spotify in the living room!

Modified Templates
We've done some work on the templates to support the New Handset Wizard, and we've added a few more templates to support a couple more popular Android devices. There are still more to come, but we wanted to support a few of the more popular devices as soon as possible.

Gateway Configurator
iRule is now smarter about how gateways are added and configured. Now, when you sync a handset, iRule will check to see which devices aren't configured, and if you want, search the network to find the appropriate devices and even configure the gateway for you. If it's a serial device connected to a Global Caché GC-100 or iTach, iRule will even configure the serial port! We can't automatically discover everything, but this makes setting up a new handset much easier for new users and experienced professionals alike.

Multifile Upload
Yes, it's true! You can now give your mouse a rest and upload an entire folder full of images to your account all at once.

Global Delays
You can now set a global value for all new delays, or you can change all the delays to a specific value in a Handset, Panel, or Page.

Improved Project Load Speed
Significant improvements have been made to the speed at which projects are loaded into the Builder.

Improved Sync Times
Dynamic syncing is now improved for repetitive editing and syncing where minor changes are applied.

Image Properties Display
Improved image properties pane to display image X-Y dimensions and labeled image file size in bytes.

Sync iPhone Handset on iPad
It's back! Better, really. When we unified iPhone and iPad apps to eliminate confusion, one side-effect was losing the ability run the iPhone version on an iPad and sync an iPhone handset. With iRule 3, that capability is back. It still isn't the best experience, and we don't generally recommend the practice, but it can come in handy in a pinch.

Gateway Backup/Restore Confirmation
A dialog will request confirmation before overwriting the Gateway settings on the server or in the app before a Gateway Backup or Restore.

Other Changes and Fixes

- Moved the Sync tab under More instead of Devices.
- Corrected numerical feedback parsing of more than 1-byte data size.
- Fixed an issue with commands not sending if phone brightness was set to zero.
- Fixed copy/paste image so newly pasted images are placed on top of an existing label.
