    • Breakpoint from v810 firmware removed, firmware up-issued to v811.
    • Typo in preferences fixed.
    • Deactivate License feature re-enabled.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Preserve platform type when registry information is deleted.
    • Improve code allocation of temporary variables.
    • Add “unsigned” qualifier to eliminate compiler warning.
    • Add “default” clause to switch statement.
    • “sgn” opcode for ‘float’ parameter was incorrectly checking the ‘short’ result to see if it was a ‘float’ NAN (Not A Number). This check should only be performed when the function return is a float variable. This issue has been fixed
    • Generate error message if “motor and sensors setup” pragma declaration not found as first lines of program. Some users had these statements elsewhere and problems were occuring.
    • Status tool bar now displays the “port number” or “NXT name” of connected robot. Previously the field was “===========”
    • Vertical scroll was not being hidden when screen was expanded large enough to fit complete file. This problem has been fixed.

    • Added support for LEGO Color Sensor and LEGO I2C Temperature Sensor.
