xLights 2017.20 Keith and Gil have added a whole bunch of new features to make AC programming easier. Because this needs testing I am marking this as an ALPHA release. Everything else is normal in this release. If you dont mind finding issues with AC programming (and maybe have crashes) please test. If you want stable, wait for the next release. I have been using this release for all of Lilia's sequences, looks very good.
