I'm continuing along the path of ReleaseSpec, since, IMHO, it will be easier. If I'm wrong, Kim, or if any of this is just not feasible, please let us know! (I guess I'm looking for some encouragement or discouragement here from the Boss!) :-)

I agree that this would be very helpful, but I wanted this to be as simple as possible, so we have some hope of Kim being able to do it soon. I think having a multiple drive option in the future might be something we could add after we have the basic function working. But that's up to Kim. Right now I'd just like to get a basic ReleaseSpec function defined which we all can agree would be useful and would work well.

I have some further thoughts on this, which I'm posting separately, Re: ReleaseSpec and LogSpec.

Please see my new posting, "ZTree Mouse Issues".

XTree Board:

I agree!

And I agree again. (Gee, this is easy!) :-)

But please see my new posting, "XTree Forum Suggestions"
