What's new in the beta 8.1d

Default Glink configuration directories

The default User Directory (/U) has now been changed to be "My Documents\Glink". This directory will be created when a Glink configuration file is saved. If Glink is a Per user installation, then the Glink Config Directory (/CD) defaults to the 'All User' documents directory.

New MSI User interface
The MSI dialog boxes have been completely redone and enhanced. An extra dialog box allows initial Glink command line options to configured. This can for example be useful for specifying /U to point at a directory containing configuration files from an earlier installation.

TN3270/5250 automatic print session
An option has been provided for specification of a printer LU or device name for TN3270 and TN5250 connections.When this is specified an additional printer session will be started automatically alongside of the normal screen session.
