The current bleeding edge release has a few new items.

1. Kill services on exit, checkbox added under “services”. This feature when enabled will uload all running services when xLobby is restarted or closed and restart them again when xLobby is relaunched. This new feature is useful for users in correcting any communication issues between xLobby and all xLobby services in the event a service becomes unstable or unresponsive. This new intuitive feature provides a simple way for users to resolve a service related issue for xLobby controlled hardware and minimizes service calls to customers until the real bug\software-hardware problem is tracked down, fixed or resolved.

2. Command “xlobby->services kill” added, clients will pass command to server. Create an event within a xLobby server or client to perform a Services restart.

3. The xLobby splash screen has a new startup progress text on a single line.

4. “O” button added next to the event path in the event editor to show the location of  the event and group location.

5. Show entire path in event editor, will show “skin” if a skin event.

6. New Variable connection Lan Speed: LAN Speed: %xlobby>connectionLANSpeed%

7. New Variable connection Internet: Internet: %xlobby>connectionInternet%
