TUI 1.8.6 is available from the usual location
<http://www.apo.nmsu.edu/35m_operations/TUI-images/>
(Mac and unix versions now, Windows to follow).

Changes include:
 Slew window: reinstated the Stop button. It sends "axis stop", which  
will stop the telescope quickly but gently, thanks to the graceful  
handling of stop commands by Fritz' axis controllers.
 Slew window: hide the Calibrate panel, since it is not well set up  
for automated operation.
 Status window: display Calib and Guide offsets. Reordered two panels  
to improve readability.
 Nudger now nudges "on sky" for all offset types. Formerly  
Calibration and Guide offsets were simply added to the axis position.
 Added a new sound cue "Exposure Failed" sound, which is played if an  
exposure sequence fails. (Warning: Agile presently outputs "aborted",  
not "failed" when an exposure fails. A fix is in the works, but until  
it appears, Agile will NOT play this new sound cue.)

Plus a few bug fixes. See the Version History for details:
