Beta versions of the new 6.0 firmware and 4.3 BrightAuthor are now available on the Software Downloads page.
Firmware Version 6.0.9 (Beta)
Firmware 6.0 includes the new Chromium HTML web-rendering engine. All presentations with HTML animations and transforms, including gesture-based content, should show remarkable improvements with this build. This update also includes full support for the WebGL language.
This beta version of the new HTML rendering engine currently has a number of limitations. Note the following:
- HTML <video> elements that have HWZ disabled do not render properly.
- Enhanced Synchronization and alpha blending for HTML <video> elements is currently broken.
- The application cache and manifest are currently broken.
- Proxy settings are currently ignored.
Firmware 6.0 features a large set of non-HTML improvements and fixes as well. For a comprehensive list, see the release notes located next to the Download Now button (they are also included in the .zip file).
