Change Release Notes

OnRaiseSpeaking event in EZ_B.SpeechSynth This new update provides an enhanced feature for robot skill creators. It allows the current speaking text to be passed onto the 'onraisespeaking' event in the EZ_B.SpeechSynth. This means that the text that is currently being spoken by the robot can be used as a trigger for specific events, providing more flexibility and control for developers in programming the robot's interactions.

Fix for servos that have a higher speed range setting This update addresses an issue with servo speed settings. Originally, the speed setting for servos was designed to operate within a range of 0 to 20. However, this range has been removed due to various servo controllers and servos with different settings. Now, the speed setting is managed by the robot skill or the servo driver, allowing for a better accommodation of different servos and controllers.

Servo parameters (acceleration, velocity, speed) are saved This enhancement ensures that the servo parameters - acceleration, velocity, and speed - are saved when they are configured from a robot skill using the graphical advanced menu. This means that once you have configured these parameters to your preference for a particular robot skill, these settings will be retained, saving you the effort of reconfiguring them each time.

Remote UI This update brings performance enhancements for the configuration and remote User Interface (UI) server. These improvements will provide a smoother, faster experience when configuring your robot skills and interacting with the remote UI server, making for a more efficient and user-friendly experience.
