Signal command time
Optional wait time in ms between commands as work around for some command stations and decoders not capable to process 2 or more commands within a very short period of time.
The turntable can be scaled from 2 to 5 grid boxes in diameter.The picture shows the a Turntable in size 2 on a Mobil client.
Support added for older Lenz command stations with firmware version 2.x.
The only thing new about scripting is the fact that it is now documented; Rocrail scripting has been available from the early beginnings of the project.
This optional ID is for trains running always the same schedule and save setting it by hand.
Force setting one route at a time, regarding the synchronizing timeout, to reduce power consumption and switch decoder overload with multiple outputs.

Fixes and improvements by Lothar. A demonstration of this service will be on 14-05-2011 in Speyer.
Turntable MGV145 Support
The new MGV145 stepmotor controller has 6 bits for selecting the track number. The newly added bit is optional to ensure compatibility with existing controllers.
New Firmware for MGV101
Thanks to the commitment of Fred and son we have now a 100% functional firmware based on UDP-Multicasting. Peter and I have done also some heavy testing and are very pleased with it.
The last used IID and module number is saved in the rocview.ini to recycle in the current and next sessions until it is changed.
Local IP for LNUDP
This option was already implemented for a few weeks or so, but the Windows implementation did not work. After many tries and errors I found today in Internet a tip which I would never had guessed.
Apparently the linked Windows socket library, wsock32.lib, does not support this option and must be replaced with the ws2_32.lib… Now it works. Please report if any side effect is detected.
→ 06-05-2011: It is tested and reported as OK. Tnx to Fred.
The last used servo setup IID is saved in the rocview.ini to recycle in the current and next sessions until it is changed.
The last used servo setup addresses and ports are saved in the rocview.ini to recycle in the current and next sessions until it is changed.

Extra functions in Loco throttle
The loco throttle dialog is extended with a "FG" button to switch between F1-F12 and F13-F24.
