Nice! Laser 1.7 is out!

BTW, where did you get an updated Robocide source? Is it still being developed? Or is it the same as always?
The sources are on GitHub:

Re: Fairymax is using 25% of cpu

There were two different releases of 1.6, the original and a fix version. I sent a link containing both versions via private message, in case you have the older, non bugfixed version.
