2 or 4 wide scale enlarge on alarm

I think it would be nice to have more options on the Montage selections. most of my cameras are in pairs one looking left and one looking right so either a 2 wide scaled or 4-wide scaled would be nice options to have. It helps me keep straight in my mind which direction things are pointed. Usually I...

Performance with 1.26.x

I wanted to hear some opinions on the improvements in speed and server load with 1.26.x over 1.25.x

Just wondering if it is worth the effort to upgrade a system that is functioning ok now.

Thanks,

Stephen
