Hi All:

  This version of Darwin is for Mach 1960 or better. It matches the video above.
Feel free to ask if any setting is confusing. (Debug mode) on the diagnostics
controls system message output .

Ohh, I should mentioon, this version will show as
version 1.19 on all three sections, the driver, the dll and the plugin.
All three must be replaced.

If you have never installed Mach4, then the Darwin support files will not be installed and you must add them.

Hi Guys:

   I wouldnt install the new Darwin till you see Mach4 is at least version 1958. I have verified it on that version,
and version 1958 had an api upgrade that will cause previous versions of Darwin to crash. So until 1958 ( likely 1960 now)
is released, Id wait on install. 

  In the meantime I will begin to update the "How to build the interface" section and release the arduino code that allows
Darwin to control the laser to the level shown in the video's. That forum is on the Gearotic Forums under "Arduino Laser".

Thx
Art

Also, I have edited  Art's very first post in this topic to include links to relevant videos, the latest plugin, and the Arduino Laser topic at Gearotics forum. I will try to keep those updated. This way anyone looking for the latest info./files can get them quickly.

That Art, he is responsible for a lot of fun.  :)
