Hi

either I am missing something or they may be a bug in version 6.0 that has
affected the duration when sending text to the slim device.
When I send text to a slim device the text inly briefly flashes on the
display. In fact the longer I make the duration the shorter it seems to get
????

I am sure this is only a small issue on the scale of things, but I make a
lot of use of the display capability of the slim device as I have 5 slim
device around the home.
Is there a bit of a bug or has the syntax change in V6. Worked fine in V 5.4

This is likely related to a known bug:

showBriefly is broken, so you only get from the time the text is shown until the
next automatic refresh. This used to be a fixed 1s refresh, but recent updates
have made this more an 'as needed'. sometimes the refresh cycle is very fast,
thus your display messages are lost.
