Maestro - "Max Power" setting is limiting power but display falsely shows PWR above "Max Power" set

I was testing the "Max Power" feature, adjustable under the Transmit menu.  I verified that can be violated in Transmit mode in version 2.3.7.41 and the newest version 2.2.9.  "Max power"  now only limits you TUNE level.  Well, the PWR knob will display up to 100watts but the actual "Max Power" still applies.  Max Power is still limited as set in the Transmit menu.

In older versions turning the PWR knob up; the display would stop on the "Max Power" number. 

And I like that better.

So I am calling it a bug and I hope the Flex Team will restore the way Max Power was displayed in earlier versions.

    Yes, this is a bug. The power will still be limited so there is no danger of putting out too much power. 

    This should be fixed in the next release.

    Maybe it means 100 percent of max power limit instead of 100 watts.
