I've cleaned up the Release RSS Feed to contain just the relevant changes and versioning info. Should be pretty readable now, without all that history. One day I hope to allow filtering of the results in the feed for people that don't want to know about all the releases I make.

Intel GPU brokeness
Date: 15/5/2018
I had noticed recently that the colour depth on one of my monitors had dropped to 6bit. I was getting ugly colour banding on gradients. The other monitor (same hardware: Dell U2515H) was fine. Was it Windows 10? Or the GPU? After much Googling I discovered it was being experienced by others as well, all using Intel GPUs:

Intel HD630 New HDR driver problem on primary monitor

After finding that thread I came to a fix that works for me: Turn off DisplayPort v1.2 support in the monitor's setup menu. Full 8bit support is back. I don't need the daisy chaining functionality so that works for me. The machine in question has an Intel Iris 580 GPU. It's definitely a driver bug rather than a hardware bug. As earlier drivers seem to work ok on DP v1.2.

Forums Re-style
Date: 7/5/2018

I've just finished a fairly major re-style of the forums just now. I hope you like it! Functionally it's still fairly much the same but it's much more modern looking. I tool a little inspiration from the Whirlpool Forums which have a nice design. But kinda blended in my own thing.

I've also added new forums for the different apps that I recently launched. And removed some old cruft as well.

The old forums are still there but I'll removed them once the new version has been tested a little more.
