Firmware Updates:
    - None
Improvements / Changes:
    - Preserve letter cases at Channel-Buttons and DSP-Menu Mixer-Gain.
    - Move into official 1.0.0 release after 4 months of public 'beta' status.
Bug Fixes:
    - Fixed bug introduced in Beta-7. Unit could become DSP-Fail and could only resolve by restoring the system to default-settings. This problem could happen when Presets are imported one-by-one.
 
NOTE: DDRC24/2x4HD are in template/Offline support ONLY. i.e. you will not be able to connect/control any of these platforms yet. We plan to release support in the comming weeks once the software QC is finalized for these platforms. Thanks for your patience!

Firmware Updates:
    - None
Improvements / Changes:
    - Display 'Turn-off-amplifier' warning before changes to the whole Preset (such as Reset-Preset)
    - Change wording from 'Restore to default settings' to 'Initialize to default settings' when a new device is connected (there is no existing presets).
    - Display a prompt with link to open SHD/Volumio webpage if an update is available, by searching for SHD/Volumio from the local-network. It is performed together with Device Console and Firmware update-check.
    - Change default check-interval of program-update from 24-hour to 1-hour.
    - Preserve letter case in Preset name display.
    - Selected Preset now in color instead of black - likewise, the chosen Crossover/PEQ input mode, the chosen PEQ band.
Bug Fixes:
    - USB-Audio lost after one of the following completed: Reset-Preset(s), DSP-Programming (Upgrade or Refresh), Import-Preset, Settings-Changed Resolutions, Dirac-Upgrade(Model Conversion).
    - Crossover chart does not update according to channel-changes at context menu.
    - Master Volume does not respond to mouse-wheel if device is not already plugged when Device Console starts
    - Setting Gain / Delay to '0' might not take effect if the input box was cleared.
 
NOTE: DDRC24/2x4HD are in template/Offline support ONLY. i.e. you will not be able to connect/control any of these platforms yet. We plan to release support in the comming weeks once the software QC is finalized for these platforms. Thanks for your patience!
