GEMS 1.10.2

GEMS 1.10.2 is ready.  Password is "rawhvj5igxw42".  New in this release is central count performance improvements, support for rich voter group text, and support for AccuVote-TS 3.5.1.  If none of these features thrill you, you might opt to stick with 1.9.6 or 1.7.5, which have a few more miles on them.
The central count work is actually a cumulation of work started in January.  In preliminary testing in King County, the time required to fetch the oval positions for a new card has dropped from a worst case of more than a minute (the wait lock error) to less than half a second.  We wish Mike and Sophia good luck in the CC test this week.
