This screen lists variables and displays its name, type and current value. If you click on a variable you can delete it or change the value.

You can create a new variable if you click on the button at the bottom. After that give the variable a name and select an expression, the expression will be evaluated and the variable gets the result value.

If you use the Set variable action or the Variable value expression then you can select variable name from a list if you click on the edit button next to the text field:

Wi-Fi selector toggle

The new Wi-Fi selector toggle is useful if you have multiple Wi-Fi networks to connect to. This toggle helps you to toggle Wi-Fi on with one click and if you click on it again it will display a list of available configured networks with RSSI percent and also displays the currently connected network. You can connect to an other network if you click on it or you can Turn Wi-Fi off.

Keep statusbar widget on top

The Accessibility service of Elixir is removed for JellyBean devices because there is a much better solution to keep statusbar widgets on top. There is a new Priority property for statusbar widgets to tell the system how important the notification of the widget is. After that it is the responsibility of the system to order notifications right.
