    • Full 32 bit and 64 bit support
    • Now compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7

    • Audio and video files now have improved functionality and more compatibility with DirectRT
    • Now allows up to 20 video files to be played simultaneously as stimuli
    • Updated support for microphones now allows for the amplitude of any incoming sound to be analyzed and tested for loudness to more
    • accurately execute RTs and record files
    • Functionality added in for the continuous tracking of mouse, keyboard, and joystick data in 10 ms intervals
    • Can now track multiple keys presses during a single stimulus
    • Stimuli can now move in a vector between multiple specified points

    • Updated interfaces add-in new functionality to the software while maintaining the same look and feel of our previous versions
    • Select to now launch the software in a new mode that enables the main window to fill up the entire region of your monitor

    • Utilize new special keys (as found in MediaLab) to move through your experiment during the design stage
    New Features (Possibly!) Ready This Spring
    • Run experiments online using our new online experiment hosting service
    • Take snapshots or record videos using a webcam during the process of an experiment
    • Will be possible to embed HTML items and other web objects as stimuli
    • Advanced experiments allow for excel functions to be accessed and used directly within an experiment.
