Changes:

- Happy New Year

- Audio Buffer Enhancement for quicker audio play and response

- Camera video performance decreased lag time by a 50 milliseconds in every second will increase framerate

- Biggest performance boost yet. The last few performance increases have been a result of experimenting with Microsoft's TPL to handle the many many threadable controls and background functions in EZ-Builder and EZ-B.DLL. While the TPL has provided performance improvements, I have recognized significant overhead in Microsoft's Task Factory which handles thread pooling and resource allocation. Since EZ-Robot is responsible and aware of our resources, i decided to write my own TPL task factory equivalent and replace Microsoft's library. This has provided the biggest performance increase that EZ-Builder has ever seen for EZ-Script, Audio, Video Tracking and general UI responsiveness. I call it the EZTaskScheduler, which is technically a factory, scheduler and thread handler all in one. I'm quite pleased with the result, and i'm certain you will be too.

- Added new EZ-Script examples in the examples folder that installs with ez-builder. One that is relevant to this release is the Procedural 4 (Threading) example.

If your asking then it must just be crazy super fast! I'm so slammed, I can't even test drive it, but I'm waiting to hear from those that have!

My InMoov is not running very well on this release. Scripts are skipping lines and the Talk servo is creating this error;

Talk servo Error: System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Text.StringBuilder' to type 'System.IConvertible'.
at System.Convert.ToInt32(Object value)
at EZ_Builder.Common.NumberToWords(String inText)
at EZ_Builder.UCForms.FormTalkServo.l9hl9MbhBp(Object )

I have uninstalled this release and re-installed the previous one and everything works OK. After re-installing this release, I have the some problems.

Is anyone else experiencing any problems?

I'll take a look at the talk servo - that control is a nitemare!:)

As for scripts skipping lines - that's quite improbable. Can you explain further on that subject? It's pretty much impossible for that to happen, specifically since the complied hasn't been touched in many many months.

DJ, the lines that are being skipped are Sayezb and Sayezbwait lines. Probably related to the Talk Servo?

Yeah that would make sense - the talk servo would do that. I'll take a look on my next flight in a few minutes
