iRacing.com - Release Notes for 2011 Season 4

Grant Reeve has posted release notes for new 2011 Season 4.

Race Panel Changes
- Added a visual MPR indicator that is displayed between the car and the sessions box. This provides a quick and easy indication if you are racing up, down or equal to your license level.
- Added a track confirmation dialog to the race panel. It is displayed when you click on a registration link in the race panel and the track associated with the session is different from what is currently displayed in the race panel. This should help to avoid issues that happen when we approach race week cutovers where people register for sessions on different tracks than they expected.

Driver Stats
- The driver stats page now includes the checkbox Active Drivers, which will restrict the result set to currently active members.

Release notes are too long to show them all on the front page so click on "Read more" button below.
