LightBurn 0.9.24 released - Comms issues for MacOS / Ruida resolved, as few other small fixes

The last couple of releases have been clean up fixes for a number of issues with the 0.9.21 release.  The last significant issue is a communication problem between serial/USB devices and the new 'temporary connection' mode used for DSPs. This primarily affected Ruida and TopWisdom controllers, and was significantly worse on MacOS.

This release includes a number of improvements to that system. We've sent this to any user we know has been affected, and with only one or two exceptions, the issue has been resolved.

If you are using a Ruida controller connected with a USB cable and still have intermittent problems with connectivity, please contact us directly through support@lightburnsoftware.com so that we can gather some info about your setup.

If you do need to revert, the last version before the communication system changes is 0.9.20, and can be found in our release archive here.
