      In the simple way of scripting,
      added the possibility to specify a slice of, say, 45 degrees, instead of a full 360 panorama
      in the case of high resolution mosaics
      e.g.
      SL,30x30,20x30,10x30,0x30,-10x30,-20x30,-30x30
      will shoot a full 360 cylindrical mosaic,
      while
      SL,30x30,20x30,10x30,0x30,-10x30,-20x30,-30x30,(45)
      will shoot only a slice of 45 deg. from it, indicated by adding (45) to script.
      This can be useful for preview or for a partial panorama instead of full 360.
      This feature will be enhanced further in the future.

        Addressed an issue regarding e.g. (90) partial panorama
        not being aligned properly in the case of asymmetrical panorama,
        i.e. with different number of shoots per row.

          Addressed an issue regarding Wake signal [W:] to wake-up the camera, the signal being sent even if was set to 0 sec
          Please use 0.25 sec or more (2 sec) if you want MECHA to wake-up camera (from possible power-save mode) when you want to save battery of the camera, and use W:0 sec only if you don't want the wake-up signal to be sent at all and camera is not on power saving mode which can occur during a MECHA session.

            Introducing support for Nodal Ninja IR remote SKU F9988
            For now these buttons are supported:
            [1] [2] [3] [<] [>] [power] [>||] [shoot]
            For MECHA DAC also [up] and [down]
            In /config there is a [x] Use Nodal Ninja IR Remote.
            As is just introduced, hence not much tested, there is a safety in /config
            Safety Interval [deg.]: [10]
            which reduces the continuous interval up-down in case of MECHA DAC for press and hold on IR remote.
            It requires another press and hold to enter in another interval.
            Once is fully tested and become familiar with up-down movements you can increase the value.
            Please proceed with extreme caution especially if the lens or camera can hit the panoramic head at extreme tilt
            better have small interval than a too large one, common is to use up to 90 or 180.
            Use only long coiled cable to assure free of accident movements up-down.
            IR remote support wil be enhanced in upcoming FW updates allowing assigning of the buttons to specific tasks/presets.

                For IR custom applications when [x] Use Nodal Ninja Remote is not selected,
                instead of ir.xml file, custom_ir.xml is required from now on.
                When [x] Use Nodal Ninja Remote is selected, no ir.xml nor custom_ir.xml is required.
                For MECHA DAC, added LED flash when button up or down of Nodal Ninja IR Remote is pressed.

                  Added codes to set the preferred rotator without need to use UI and /config
                  23131< will set E1 as preferred rotator
                  23132< will set E2 as preferred rotator
                  23121< will set P1 as preferred rotator
                  The code should match with the actual rotator connected.
                  This is useful for first tests, out of the box and new MECHAs which are going to be used with a certain rotator type,
                  or on field, if is need to swap a E1 rotator for a more powerful E2 or P1.
                  The presets will auto adapt to the preferred rotator automatically.

                  Added 231231231< code which is for factory reset.
                  It requires, however, a factory file to exist in MECHA, this can be provided via update or available for download.
                  Details about the ways of delivery will be published later.
                  The new units will be shipped with the factory file included.
                  The code need to be entered twice
                  231231231< then after LEDs stop lighting as ',',
                  231231231< again then the power LED will flash and needs to be pressed short.
                  If !!! are display on LEDs then the factory file is not found and nothing is done.
                  1. Mecha it possible.

                    Addressed an issue regarding DAC presets based on repeat which ignored, say, ^90 custom interval for the list of angles, e.g. 2^90:90, had as result two shots at 180 instead of two at 90 apart.
                    Addressed an issue regarding W: when negative value is used and didn't forced a pause before the movement sequence as it should, if camera was wake-up recently, thus not allowing time for photographer to get out from view, which was the intended use of the negative W:

                      MECHA DAC, when status on automatic pairing is display on LEDs, like - =, on MECHA-V the red LED will remain ON if the MECHA-H FW version is different from MECHA-V FW
                      If this is the case, although the pairing may work, please update MECHA again when both are ON from MECHA-H UI or only MECHA-V, if updating both doesn't end in having - = LEDs without red LED ON.
                      To update only MECHA-V, if needed, power ON only MECHA-V then at -=-=-=-= press short [1] then connect to its SSID then access UI and perform update as usual.

                          Added another way for update which will be used at request when support is offered by email or by dealers.
                          It will help in providing MECHAs with the latest update more easily.
                          This way will be included in user guide as well to assure most updated FW before the first use of MECHA.

                            In the simple form of scripting, added the possibility to specify the degrees apart from positions in a row
                            e.g. SL,0x6,90x1,-90x2
                            will take at the end two nadirs at 180 apart (computed from 360/2)
                            SL,0x6,90x1,-90x2^90
                            will take at the end two nadirs at 90 apart (as indicated by ^90)
                            so in a row, after the number of position, e.g. x6, if is nothing after, the positions will be spread by 360/6 degrees one from the next
                            if ^45 is added, like x6^45, those 6 positions will be taken at every 45 degrees apart.
                            This is useful, say, for multiple Zeniths at desired interval one from another.

                              Enhanced the simple form of scripting, added the possibility to specify
                              N,NN,Z or ZZ anywhere in the script after starting position like
                              SP,0x6,Zx1,Nx2
                              Furthermore, new conventions are also supported now,
                              e.g.
                              Nx3, (3 Nadirs automatically spread at 120 deg. apart)
                              NN^120, (2 Nadirs at 120 deg. apart)
                              Nx3^60, (3 Nadirs at 60 deg. apart)
                              and the same for Zenith, using the Z and ZZ conventions.
                              1. Mecha it possible.
                              2. Mecha it easy.
