    XLIGHTS/NUTCRACKER RELEASE NOTES:
    ---------------------------------
    2016.23 May 03, 2016
    -- enh (keithsw) Added new option "Tools, Generate Custom Model"
    -- enh (dkulp) Upgrade to newer OpenGL library. The OpenGL rendering has been updated from the “fixed pipeline” code (which was state of the art in 1998) to using modern OpenGL shaders (>2010). This allows us to better use the capabilities of modern video cards. However, to support older machines, we can drop down to OpenGL 2.1 shaders or even to the old 1.3 fixed pipeline. Modern machines should be faster, older machines should still work.
    (Sean's interpretation: We draw smoother and faster now)
    -- enh (dkulp) New option on the Tree model, "Spirals". This is how many times a strand is wrapped
    around the tree. 1.0=one full wrap, 2.5 = 2 1/2 wraps from bottom to top.
    -- bug (gil) Fix Copy Row/Paste Row when vertically scrolled. Fixes #553.
    -- bug (gil) Fix application losing focusing when closing a floating panel.
    -- enh (gil) Re-position view when playback starts or loops so that play marker is visible. Fixes #550.
    -- enh (gil) Paste modifications for how single effects paste in various situations. Fixes #549.
    -- bug (dkulp) Add rename button to groups dialog. Fixes #548
    -- bug (dkulp) Fix blur setting when clicking on effects. Fixes #547
    -- bug (dkulp) Reset status bar and refresh previews on file close. Fixes #552
    -- bug (dkulp) Only redirect the menu items that need redirecting
