Re: 2.3 is finally here :)

Varvar’s line change gave me back my OLED_128_64. (in pre2.3 & 2.3 I could have i2c GPS OR OLED, just not both at the same time)
Thank You

My hardware setup works great with MW2.2.
I2C freezes when i2C_GPS is activated using pre_2.3. When commented, everything else works, even with i2C GPS still hooked up.
Back to 2.2 and all is well again.
