Gareth has been hard at work for the last couple of weeks adding some new features to Spikemark and yesterday we posted it on the website for everyone to download. Spikemark 3.1 is a free upgrade for all users of Spikemark, and it is recommended for all users. As always, this upgrade will not effect your existing show files.
The most exciting new feature is 3.1 is built-in firmware upgrade functionality. When you connect to your Stagehands, Spikemark will check to see if the Stagehand is running the most current firmware. If it’s not, Spikemark will show a pop-up letting you know that the firmware is out of date and tells you how to initiate the auto-updater. The rest of the updating is handled automatically. We recommend that everyone keeps their firmware updated.
