Scott,

Can you or someone be more specific on what was done for this release? I have a version sent to me by Doug - 1.9 I think it is ...

What "board dependent issues" does this fix?

I can't say for sure, but my interpretation of "board dependent issues" is that the firmware wasn't making timing on every serial number board.

Ah! I took that as meaning 7000 vs 8000 ... i.e. each having their own 'issues' ...

Could be that, too!
