I just installed this and tried for myself, and it appears to be
working fine.  The only problem I noticed is that the extension which
allows us to modify the menubar and toolbar from a Python script is
broken again, so you don't see the buttons for toggling the Phenix
connection and hydrogen appearance.  But the update during refinement
is working as expected - what was your experience with it?
