Magic Lantern update: Live View via HDMI!

The wizards from Magic Lantern have done a lot of 'magic' for us Canon 550D/T2i owners, but now a new release of ML has succeeded in realizing what to me was a great omission: being able to use all the nice features of Magic Lantern AND being able to focus via my Lilliput monitor at the same time. I have just downloaded and installed the latest ML update and HDMI-out works!
There is even an experimental peaking function which, at this point, is too 'rough' to be useful. But it shows that anything is possible as long as you put enough time and energy into developing the software. Kudos to everyone who has made this possible! (I will make a donation.)
