In this release we have made it possible to ask the user for input in macros and to map more physical buttons and external keyboard buttons (Ctrl, Alt and Shift) to Glink keys and functions. We have also added support for Unitech mobile computers via Data intents, and added an alternate arrow key mode to the 5250 emulation. There are also other minor corrections and improvements in this version.
The upgrade is free for customers who purchased earlier versions of the Glink for Android products with support.
