0.4.8 is mostly bug fixes. Here's what's in it.
* A red thermometer display is shown if the Raspberry Pi gets too warm. In addition, the Raspberry Pi temperature is now displayed in the "Indicators" tab on the "Control Page.
* Version 0.4.6 introduced a problem that caused the Raspberry Pi to be excessively loaded. This was fixed in 0.4.8
* If the user reset the configuration multiple times consecutively, it would cause problems. This was fixed in 0.4.8.
* A problem was fixed that was associated with offsets after an M2 or M30 at the end of the program.
* A warning was generated after a G53 command. This was fixed.
* Offsets were not respected during canned cycle moves. This was fixed.
* The USB camera is disabled if the Raspberry Pi temperature reaches 80C.
* The CPU clock speed is scaled back if the Raspberry Pi gets too warm.
* The serial port driver on the Raspberry Pi was replaced to eliminate dropped data between the Raspberry Pi and the main board. Improvements were also made in the serial port communications on the main board.
* The g-code planner did not always terminate correctly. This was fixed.
* The logs were not rotating correctly. This was fixed.

Additionally, 0.4.9 is now out. It only has one change. The 6A limit on motor drive-current is now enforced.

Hope this helps,
Doug
