ILPilbox v1.4 is a performance update. The speed with the loop controller on the real HP-IL side remain stable, but the transfer speed with the controller on the Virtual HP-IL side (i.e. Emu71/Win) had been increased between 10%-50% to version 1.3. 10% were measured on a very fast multi core host system, whereas the 50% were measured on a slow host system with a P4/3.2GHz.

The update is available at http://hp.giesselink.com/hpil.htm.

I just dropped it into my setup with multiple ILPer instances running on local PC and everything is OK. I have not done any performance testing, but all has worked perfectly.

Thanks Christoph!
