Software Information
This EZ-Builder update introduces a fantastic new feature to extend single scripts for event triggers. Until now when an event was triggered, it would execute only a single script command. Now you can add multiple scripts to a single command. Keep in mind, these are still "Event Triggers" and not complete scripts. This is how event trigger programming works in software - while a trigger is executing, it blocks all other commands until it has completed. This means you should not perform time intensive commands (i.e. loops and waits, etc).

- All Event Triggers now support multiple EZ-Script lines
- SendSerial() command no longer disconnects EZ-B if more than 9 characters are sent

Hello @DJ, Did you get a chance to check out the servo release issue I had mentioned a couple of releases back, wherein when using Server/Client any servo release command on the Client (Remote) resulted on the Server (EZ-B) side's matching servo going to 100?

I ask because now I see that in this version a Client side release command always sends its matching Server side's servo to the opposite extreme 1 instead of the 100 of all prior tests (assuming the invert is not on at the Server end... in fact the invert switch setting on the Client does not carry over to the Server anyhow).

Either way, a release all command tends to cause all sorts of havoc on the robot:)

Doesn't matter which PC is the server or client. All other servo and PWM controls seem to work fine.

Thank you.
@DJ - I was just wondering if you had a chance to figure out what was going on with the SendSerial issue with using strings? I have made a temp workaround for the time being by using another pic chip that talks directly to the EMIC2 board and the LCD but would prefer not having to add another pic.
