      Increased the level for quiet beeps in U.I. from 1 to 3
      The old level can be used by entering custom value "1" at BEEP if needed.

      Added code [2] [3] [1] [<] to turn OFF everything for faster battery charge.
      First please plug the charger cable, then enter this code.
      Press [p] to show/hide battery level on LEDs when charging.
      If is no power on charging cable, the code will be ignored.
      If code is executed, the LEDs will show charging then the cable needs to be unplugged and
      Mecha needs to be power-up again to be used normally.
      Pressing other buttons than [p] will have no effect.

          Removed the automatic update at start except when the unit is reset with [3] 3s at -=-=-=-=
          and hot-spot or Wi-Fi with name "M-XXXXXX" and password "12345678" exists.
          To update the firmware manually please use:
          [Update] button in top-right of this page or enter 32123< using Mecha's buttons.
          An update will be performed if possible and Mecha will restart.
          If Mecha isn't connected to Wi-Fi or there is no update available or the update server cannot be accessed nothing will happen, but at the very next start, Mecha will try once more to update.

          This will affect the next update, of course.
          Until then, I'll revisit and edit all the update instructions in this forum, if needed, to be according with this new change.

            B_E_01370 is published.

            Added shutter confirmation delay. If the exposure pause is at least 0.25 s, the pause will be extended if there is shutter open signal coming from camera.
            An additional cable from camera connected to AUX port of Mecha is required.

              B_E_01371 is published.

              Added shutter confirmation feedback on LEDs, the first and last LED will be ON ("0" in symbol table above)
              if the shutter confirmation was received from camera.
              Is need for the PC-sync cable to be connected from AUX port to sync port or adapter of camera.
              To test, please set the shutter time on camera to at least 1/10 or longer then press the shutter button of camera.
              If LEDs don't light up please check if there is a camera setting to set sync signal and change it to be long or to cover the entire exposure.

              Tip: To test only the cable, connect it to AUX port, then short the sync connector with a metallic screwdriver or a paper clip.

                If "After" delay, in W,B,E,A is a negative value, that delay will be after each exposure/shutter trigger in set.

                      But what prevents the Mecha from telling the user if there's an update available and to ask if that should be installed or not? If the device is online this should be done easy...

                        good suggestion. Better push the firmware history to user.
                        Dorin,
                        How about embedding a page from server?

                          U.I. the [Info] button will show/hide some labels under the buttons in U.I., while the page title will launch this "What's new" page.
                          On mouse equipped devices the info will hover over the buttons

                          Better wording and more U.I. labels will come in next days.

                            Toggle info button to show the labels.
                            Next task is to split the comma separated input pf advanced delays.
