I can understand the 1st and 3rd changes but the UART commands ......? I know the acronym and its used in communicating to serial devices. What would be an example of an application for the uart and its benefits? Would this be considered another port? ...Enquiring minds...Thanks once again for your hard work @ DJ:)

Sadly, that won't be possible for transparency. You will have to cut the image out of the master image if that is the case. The transparency cannot be set for buttons or images through to other images.

Hey DJ - awesome news ! Thanks ! Especially love the sound of the images as buttons as it means we can now use images of gel buttons etc that we design - it makes the interface way more sexy!

I was hoping it might include updates of some of the 3D parts too - is there any definite day that these are getting uploaded?

Ps I'm increasing my order to include a full Roli kit too - I figured its like adopting a cat - if you just have one kitten, it's not kind as it gets bored .... Whereas if you adopt two then they can play with each other lol ! So it's going to be a full Roli kit and a printed (hopefully lol) JD.

Can't wait !

Thanks again for the great improvements!

The 3D design files will be updated. They are on the schedule of things to do. There's a method to my madness:)
