Lightburn just pushed an update for 184.108.40.206, the prior version was 220.127.116.11. I’ve updated Tarkin’s machine to 18.104.22.168.
Otherwise, you will get a nag notice at every opening that you should consider updating. All your files saved under 22.214.171.124 will open of course, but I’m not sure we can guarantee forward-compatibility. i.e. a Lightburn project saved on Asmbly’s 126.96.36.199 machine may not open on an outdated 188.8.131.52 install at home, but I have no proof of such a problem, I didn’t check.
LB 184.108.40.206 has some new features. I do see they added a field to dithered rastering (I believe that’s one I requested!). That may mean that your saved project’s Layer settings might be out of date and you might need to review whether the default it throws for old projects is the best option I will be adjusting the Materials Database entries soon for the optimal values for the new field but that is not updated yet.
Possible install hitches:
Even if you close all Lightburn instances prior to updating (required), the updater may still report that there are instances running and hang up trying to kill them. LB does sometimes create zombie processes you cannot kill and I can’t even find on Task Manager, just reboot and it will be fine.
At the end of installer, it may say your license key is invalid/expired and prompt you to enter it anew with the key field blank. If you don’t have the key handy, try exiting and restarting LB, that actually worked without reentering the key (which I didn’t have on hand). If that doesn’t work and you don’t have the key string stored anywhere, you need to recover your key there’s an online tool for that.
I have seen LB installer report a problem deleting/changing existing files. I worked around by deleting the old install entirely.
