At [www.box.net] you will find a button to let you download a test package named reprap-host-0.8.1rc1.zip

This is very close to what I expect to release as reprap-host-0.8.1 tomorrow.

The corresponding source package is available via [www.box.net]

Testers very much welcome!

cool, worked okay for me. i'll test it tomorrow on my machine.

also, i dug into the code a bit, and tackled a smaller problem. its hard to tell the lower shell apart from the extrusion, so i made it green. it seems to work, and here is my diff:

its a very minor change, so i'll probably check it in tomorrow. unless you'd like to be for the 0.8.2 release. let me know.

Sounds good to me. If you can add 3 lines to the preferences and set the ShellColour from them (default to your green if they don't exist), that would be more in keeping with the way the rest of the colo(u)rs in the host Preview window work. Although the Preferences screen *is* getting a bit crowded!

Go ahead and check it in anyway, with or without preferences.
