Great work!  Thanks so much.

I notice that the old "overscan" problem exists, where a good 4-5 characters worth of space on the top/left/bottom/right are off the screen.  The old instructions were to make changes to boot.cmd and mkconfig a new boot.scr.  There's no boot.cmd any more.  Can you give us an idea how to deal with this in the new release?

Thanks,
Andy
