The seventh release of EasySeats is now out, and with it come an abundance of new features.
Of these, the most notable item is that there are no limits to the amount of seats now. With this change, the drop
down list now generally works in a LIFO context when removing seats. The goal is to eliminate the requirement to clear all seats to start over in case there is a use case of 3 or more seats.
For the most part, program functionality is similar to how it was before with the left <---> right paradigm. Pick a seat number, add devices from the left side to the right side, and when you are ready you can then assign them to the seat with your chosen configuration. The permissions pop-up is the point when your seat will actually be created.
A note for future reference: the next version will be able to automatically pull in data for additional seats, not just seat zero. This means that the capability to get systemd status out of a text file will be going away. I could technically make it work by just having one text file per seat, but that begins to defeat the purpose. It has been over a year since systemd 236 was released, which makes pulling the entries out of the terminal possible. Version 236 or newer should be in most linux distributions by now.
EasySeats is open source software developed to bring ease to users who choose to go multi-seat. It supports video cards for seat creation as well as external USB docks.
