         CMF VIN change is now supported in [F4: OBD]->[VIN Change].

         Disabled hotkeys for editing tune files when no tune file is open and/or when no *.cam file is present for the open tune file.

         Additional USB message management to mitigate the $0101 error that may occur on some USB configurations.

         Tune files from A40 controllers that identify as "A46" can now be opened the V8 software.

         Selecting the "Next Scan/Tune Window" (hotkey Alt+F2 and Alt+F3) would cause the next window to be restored to its un-maximized size if it had been previously maximized.

Known Issues:

         When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with "_M" or "_DMA"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However, the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.

Workaround: EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.
