Subject: 1.96.3 30 party feature
firmware 1.96.3 will increase the longstanding 10-party limit to 30.
1.96.3 prerelease 2 will go out for testing shortly. It will display
"96.3p2" at boot.
To use the
30-party feature, you will also need GEMS 1.18.8 and the accompanying
195us.abo. Previous GEMS remain compatible as long as you don't have
more than 10 parties.
The memory card
format needed to change slightly to accommodate the new parties. This
will cause a "format memory card" message for testers with memory cards
downloaded using 1.96.1-2 or previous 1.96.3 prereleases the first time they
are used. Re-download and you should be good to go.
