JMRI Controller v0.4.5 has just been published and will be updated on your devices in a few hours.
This version fixes (I hope!) the crash that Peter and Colin reported, plus some other small bugs.

Hi Tom
I'm using android 4.4.2 on a Note 3. The app closes as soon as it connects to Wi Throttle.
I've tried both the release and developer versions of JMRI but I get the same problem.

I have been having start up crashes with the latest version of JMRI Controller. I recently updated JMRI to 3.8 to get Engine Driver working properly. Withrottle on my iPhone also works.
I am using a Google Nexus 7 with Android 4.4.4 and it says it is up to date.
Once Jmri Controller connects to the Jmri through the ip and port, it just says "Unfortunately JMRI Controller has stopped working. It then goes back to ready to connect again.
Any ideas what the issue is?

v0.4.2 has just been released. This fixes the crash on startup that was affecting pre-KitKat devices.

JMRI Controller has been updated to version 0.4.
This update adds a couple of new settings (auto connect and keep screen on).

It also fixes a bug on Samsung phones where it was not possible to type an IP address properly in the manual connection screen (thanks Joe for reporting that).

This update should be pushed to your devices within a few hours.

A quick tip to those using the app: To get the loco image and function list to display properly, you need to have the JMRI Web Server running. To do this, in Panel Pro, go to Tools, then click "Start JMRI Web Server".
Then reconnect to the layout and the loco images and function labels should appear.

JMRI Controller has just been updated to v0.4.1. This version fixes a crash on tablets when going to the settings screen, plus adds a couple of small features.
It is now possible to show all loco functions, not just labelled ones. Change this in the settings.
