Beta 9.2 adds pre and post buffering support for motion events which is configurable from 0-10 seconds.  This will add a set amount of time to the beginning and end of the motion event, which is useful for high motion areas.  This release also fixes an upstart bug that has existed through out all of the beta which affected Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 releases.

We also now force ACTi cameras into RTP over UDP automatically when they are enabled or added.  Previously you had to manually change this in the ACTi camera settings, which isn’t Firefox friendly.  This release also removes duplicate IP checking, which affected beta testers using IP cameras from the same IP address.

Note:  It is important that you upgrade to this release before January 18th, as beta 9.1 will expire and no longer work on that date.
