Change Release Notes

Calling all testers:)

This is a pretty significant beta update with changes that will hopefully be transparent to you. These changes are targeting our goal of providing cross-platform and the ability to compile application EXE's with user interfaces from your robot project. The update in this release has a number of back-end infrastructure changes that hopefully you shouldn't notice. And if you do, they'll be very noticeable because your robot won't move hahha:)

- open ezb window is not case sensitive for file extension (preparation for cross-platform)

- screen renderer updates. Performance and scrolling

- movement panels handle their own movement code through an event from the movement controller (needs testing extensive for each movemnet panel)

- ezbmanager holds the Movement Panel for public reference

- custom Movement Panel supports left and right speed option

- mobile interface in fullscreen mode smoother transition between pages. The last virtual window

- CloseControl() EZ-Script is supported in mobile interface fullscreen mode. The last virtual window

- moved sphero and mip from ez-b communication kernel to control

- AutoPosition Movement Panel moved from communication kernel into control

- display existing Movement Panel title if trying to add a second

- moved the Movement Panel registration to the FormMain
