1. Fix an issue with the FuelTank, TirePressure widgets, and the

Voice Attack "Add Splash" command.
       The wrong value was being sent to the SIM when the unit of
measure defined for the car
       was different from your "Metric" setting in iRacing.
       For example: If the car is the Ferrari 488 (which is liters) and
your Metric setting is not checked in iRacing.

    2. Added support for SIMTime to be multiplied by a factor.
       Currently, iRacing doesn't log the multiplier in the telemetry
that the session is using.
       Until they do, you can set the following variable in your
settings each time
       you get into a session that is using a multiplier.
       {value} should be the integer portion of what iRacing is
displaying.
       iRacing displays 1x, 2x, 4x, etc. but you should enter 1, 2, or
4.

--- Configuration Requirements ---
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. To get the server running, simply execute the SIMRacingAppsServer...exe
on the same computer that the Simulator is running on.
2. If you do not have Java 1.8 or better installed, it will redirect you to the Java download page.
NOTE: This page may install the 32-bit version of Java. The 64-bit version is faster.
See https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/Java-64-Bit-Installation on how to find it.
Also see http://wiki.SIMRacingApps.com/Java-Update-Configuration
for detailed instructions on how to configure Java's Automatic Updates so it doesn't interrupt your racing.
3. If a Firewall is running, you might get prompted to allow the server to run.
Depending on if your Ethernet connection was made private or public,
you may be asked to confirm that also. Please select allow.
If your Firewall doesn't prompt you, then you will have to add an exception to allow "java.exe"
for both in-bound and out-bound traffic on all ports.
See https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/How-to-fix-Firewall-issues for more information.
4. Enter the server address (found in the Title Bar of the server window) in your browser
from any device connected to the same local network.
Connecting from outside the local network is not supported and not recommended due to security concerns.
5. To use the Electron client with the Apps/Widgets overlaid on top of the SIM, you
must have the SIM running in Windowed mode. Please see the following Wiki info to configure the SIM.
https://github.com/SIMRacingApps/SIMRacingApps/wiki/How-to-setup-iRacing-in-Windowed-Mode
6. Please refer to the Quick Start Guide at http://quickstart.SIMRacingApps.com
for more details and options for running the server.
