UCCNC version 1.2110 is ready for testing.
The download link: http://www.cncdrive.com/UCCNC/setup_1.2110.exe

Bug fixes and changes:

- M30 macro text file was not executed on M30 command, only the internal M30 function was executed, fixed.

- G94 reset on file load checkbox was missing from a few screensets, fixed.
- In G93 mode the G80 was concidered a line which requires a feedrate, fixed.
- The UC100 API native dll files were packed out from the UCCNC.exe file to give less suspicions for antivirus softwares to false trigger.
- Changes in the tangential knife handing was made to handle codes where the Z axis moves down from more than a single downwards linear movement. This caused an issue with the previous release.
- Override softlimits did not work for the AXBB-E in the previous release, fixed.
- Motion control API files for C# and C++ development was released (same as what drives the UCCNC software). This enables programmers to write their own machine control software applications. The C# wrapper and native C++ header and lib files are included. Using the motion control API does not require a license key, it can be used for free of charge with our motion controllers. It installs with the UCCNC into the UCCNC/API folder.
