The SONAR X1a patch is now available for download. In the interest of getting more fixes and enhancements out faster, weve decided to break up the forthcoming X1 updates. The first update, X1a, addresses a large number of smaller issues (and a few big ones) that were in large part discovered after SONAR went to manufacturing. We wanted you to have these fixes as soon as possible. The next update, X1b, will address some larger issues (many based on your feedback) that will take a bit more time to complete. Well provide more information as it is available, but rest assured, our goal is to provide as many enhancements to X1 as expediently as possible.
