Dear FieldTrippers,

I would like to bring to you attention that we have reorganzed and
improved FieldTrip's programs for acquisition and real-time signal

The most important change for users is the new directory structure.
For each platform, we now have a directory containing all the
executables for that platform*:
- realtime/bin/win32 for Windows,
- realtime/bin/glnxa64 for Linux (64 bit),
- realtime/bin/maci64 for OS-X (64 bit).

To get started with real-time processing, you can take a look at the
examples (http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/development/realtime#example_scripts)
and the background information
(http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/development/realtime) on the FieldTrip

Besides restructuring the file layout, we have fixed a number of bugs,
most notable being:
- bug #1525 duplicated samples with low-latency settings [1],
- bug #933 freezing buffer server due to deadlock in threading [2],
- bug #1246 incorrect reading of configuration scripts [3],
- bug #1020 memory problem in event handling [4].

We strongly recommend to download a fresh release of FieldTrip
(http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/download), and use the files from this
new version.

Best regards,

Boris Reuderink
