    Dan hopefully fixed radeon graphic card displays
    Keith added new command "Tools, Package Problem Files". This will create a zip of your log file. You no longer need to search in the hidden folder appdata.

    Dan has given you the ability to pick which level of OpenGL you Want. The current software auto-detects and sets the appropriate level.

    Level 1 was released 1997,

    Level 2 released in 2004,

    Level 3 was released in 2010.




    All of these changes in the last few weeks have been to allow xLights to run at Level 3. If you have issues try reducing the level of your OpenGL libraries by using the "Settings,OpenGL".
