Hi, having issues with some minor localization. For example, modifying the 
radar mosaic list file radarsInUse.txt results in no change on the CAVE 
clients. Prior it could be modified and it would recreate the menus.

has the location been changed? I found 3 of these and modified them all, no joy.

Is level2 supported in this release?

Thanks for the great work! 

Ray
