This is an initial release to get feedback. Note carefully that many things may change. One that must be highlighted is how preferences are handled. I have not yet written the custom handler I plan, so I am using the default JVM preferences system. On Windows, this uses the registry and MAY WELL FAIL unless you have the correct registry keys set up. This is an issue with the JVM itself. As this will be resolved at a later stage and because it is not that simple a fix, I am not going to supply details. If you are happy to find out what is needed using your favourite search engine, then please feel free to go ahead.
I am particularly looking for feedback from non-Windows users. I have a Windows machine and a Linux machine, so really it is just Mac users I need to hear from.
This version of the program includes a feature to check online for new versions. Whilst noting the comment above, I do recommend turning on this preference.
The last few versions have been "wired up" - the user interface controls actually affect the data loaded. For the most part, this appears to be working safely but the program is likely to be more crash-prone than it had been.
With this release, you should be able to edit all the Pad parameters, including the Global pad dynamics (although I remain uncertain as to whether this have the right names on the user interface). As none of the kit functionality is in place, no checking is done yet to disable editing of values that are meant to be in "Kit override" mode. Kit-level concerns are coming soon!
