Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071222
Release Notes

More modifications. Some for stability.

after reviewing many crash logs, it appeared as though Connect and Disconnect events were the leading causes in crashes, mostly connects.

Connects were crashing when LED/Rumble stuff was updating. At first, I thought this was because the updates were getting sent to a stale (disconnected) Wiimote object. However, this wasn't quite the case. Instead, it was usually crashing because the wiimote connection, while established, was not ready for LED/Rumble updates, so we were sending them too soon (often as soon as we connected). I added a 45-frame timer that delays LED/Rumble updates, and this seems to have resolved some connect-time crashes (as well as the occasional perpetual blinking lights issue that I rarely observed).

I modified a few more pieces of the framework to handle notifications a bit more swiftly, and that looks like it has corrected the previously noted "_nsnote" crash mentioned in the previous beta. Sometimes it will crash when QC exits though, in "_cleanup" -- Still looking into this one.

The Pitch and Roll outputs also output full 360° values now, so you can emulate the WiiMenu rotating cursor. They're not properly ranged though (-270 - +90 or something), I'll try to get to that in the next beta.
