Tank, I just installed this latest Beta version and it installed over my previous version (V7.2.9). The updated version retained all my Slots and configuration settings as far as I can tell. That Browser-interface appears to be pretty slick from what I've seen so far. After I performed the upgrade, I did notice a couple of things that I had to do:
- The Browser interface (new icon on your desktop) that you can start after installation looks for the V7 Client to be running and doesn't do anything until that V7 Client is up. So, I had to start the desktop Client interface and then go back to the Browser to tell it to do a refresh. Then you can see what the features of the Web interface look like.
- Before messing with the Browser interface, I had attempted to first just run the new Client from my desktop and all looked OK on-screen. But I could not get a new WU to start Folding from within the Client interface by selecting a Slot, right clicking and selecting Fold. It would not do anything or respond to my selections. However, going back over to the Browser interface, I noticed that the slider-bar was set all the way over to the left "Off" position. So, I slid it all the way to the right to the "Full" position. Going back over to the standard Client interface, I noticed that it had started all of my Slots and everybody had received a WU to Fold. The right click controls (in the desktop Client interface) are also working now for each given Slot (Pause, Finish, etc).
It will take a bit of time to discover what the new Browser interface is all about, but I kinda like it so far. I haven't figured out what the selection window does that says "I support [selection] research". Maybe it's just for grins or maybe does something...I don't know.
