What's new in LED Panel

Version 0.8.5:
  • Finally got around to fixing display glitch with Load URL button on back of panel introduced with OS X 10.5.
  • Project has moved to a new site (zachstronaut.com); updated version checking and project links accordingly.
  • For led:scroll and led:marquee, I changed the word "speed" to "delay" as that is much more descriptive of what that parameter actually does. The documentation doesn't have to explain things backwards anymore either.
  • Has it really been nearly 3 years since I published this widget? Wow. I have some fun ideas for new features...

Very cool idea. I have started messing around with it and noticed one serious problem - it doesn't refresh after hitting "Load URL" if you have saved a new local file over your old one. I had an error in my page (it was trying to load the wrong filename for the next frame) and I eventually just clipped it to the first frame and attempted everything I could to load it. It kept immediately opening my page in FireFox before displaying anything and in the html FireFox was showing were the links to my next frame. Finally I had to close the widget, open a new one, and re-enter the location of my first frame with file:///somefolder/test/test.html and it worked like a charm. If you get wonky results, I suggest closing that instance of the widget and open a new one and try again. Keep up working on this though - definitely a neat idea.
