    xLights release 4.2.21[/size]In this release Gil added a new data model, Circles,Gil and I modified our effects so that they would not create artifacts on larger matrices.Dan changed how E1.31 data is sent.Before we had a flag that would detect if any data changed on any universe, if it did we sent all universes. Last summer we added an optimization, just send data for universe that has changed.This caused a problem. No one noticed it last summer because people did not have their hardware connected. Some controllers need to see data , even if that data is zeroes. The reason of not sending data was just to reduce network traffic. It had the side effect of causing some controllers problems.To put this on a timeline2014: Xlights 3 would resend all universes if any universe changed2015: Summer, Optimization to only send the universe that changed.2015: This release, go back to the previous method that xlights 3 had.Latest releases are found at http://nutcracker123.com/nutcracker/releases/Issue Tracker is found here: https://github.com/smeighan/xLights/issuesXLIGHTS/NUTCRACKER RELEASE NOTES:--------------------------------4.2.21 Nov 13, 2015-- enh(gil) Add Circle model class.-- enh(gil) Smaller step angle for Fan, Galaxy, and Shockwave to support larger models.-- enh(sean) Smaller step angle for Pinwheel, this allows the edges to show correctly on larger displays-- bug(dan) Fix chases in single strand.
