    xLights 2016.9. Big Release!

    Lots of stuff in this release!

    Keith Added blur capability in the layer blending window. Try any effect and slide the blur slider (over in layers window). Try on text, wave and see.

    Be aware blur does add extra time to saves, especially if you add it to a whole house model. My 21 second save of "Mary Did You Know" went to 45 seconds. Just FYI

    Gil added ability for single effect to be moved up , down,left ,right. on grid. Highlight an effect and use arrow keys to move it around.

    Dan, Gil, Keith made lots of bug fixes also.

    Thanks Team!
