Version 1.5.1

Released 1 Dec 2022


From this version, only Windows 8 and above is supported.

Major: Added a 'Pay at table' toggle to the Spice UI

'Pay at table' mode can now be enabled or disabled from the Spice UI. To do so, go to Settings > Pay at table > click the new Pay at table toggle.

Enabling/disabling this mode no longer requires manually editing the spi.json settings file — clicking the toggle automatically changes the file.
