This manual documents the fixes that will be available in QTPI v1.57. This will fix some rather embarassing show stopper features in QTPI v1.56. It is provided without (much) documentation "as-is". This new release is available here to download or from various mailboxes.

Mono screen bug

Catastrophic screen corruption resulting in a completely unusable program would result if the program was Config 'ed for mono. This was a result of programmer stupidity while adding the resize icon. So maybe I do need ProWesS ?

Status Bar overflow

The status bar would overflow when long ComDev strings (for example, Superhermes device names) were used.

Don't think even ProWesS would have saved me from this one.

XPR Transfer failures

On systems where CSM was not installed, XPR file transfers would fail, usually locking up the machine. This was not a deliberate attempt to force you to use CSM

baud rates on QXL

QTPI v1.56 allegedly supported split baud rates to 57600 baud on QXL. Other than the beta tester for this feature, no-one else seems to be able to make it work. It is removed from v1.57.
