Release Notes:


The introduction of the experimental feature for supporting large GUIs ( make my system quite unstable, since its implementation i cannot open more than one MUI application at the same time … for example if i try to open a video with MUI MPlayer (while Odyssey or any other MUI app is opened) the system will turn so slow that i will be forced to close atleast one of that application if i want to use the system normally … sometimes it gonna freeze the whole system aswell …

I think, maybe you should revert back that change or found any other method to implement what you liked to implement :-)

Well, the experimental feature will become active if and only if the window does not fit on the screen. Otherwise there is absolutely no difference to how things were handled before.

The old approach was to modify the GUI settings in such a way that the final GUI would become as small, narrow and tight as possible to make the too large window (hopefully) fit on the screen. Most of the time this was not as successful as stunzi might have expected. Additionally the modified settings applied to all other windows of the application, even if these did not exceed the screen dimensions when using the normal GUI settings.

Have you installed all classes/libraries from the nightly build archive or did you use the Installer script? The latter might skip classes during the update which have not been bumped.

Yes i've installed all libs manually, but i tried both approch (installer too) in order to be sure, and after various checking all things seems installed correctly ..

Still the problem in those recent nightly builds, all appears quite unstable as descripted above
No problem with MUI 5.0 2018-R1, problem seems started since the first nightly of R2
