*** Release 4062 - 15 July 2021 ***

This version will not work on Windows XP.

Unfortunately, release 4049 contained an error to do with converting existing events. Results which previously had been non-finishers (disqualified in some way) were no longer showing as such. As part of the database structure update all existing events should have been flagged as needing recalculation, but this wasn’t done. This new release does this, but the downside is that any event that has been added or recalculated in the meantime will be flagged for recalculation even though it doesn’t need it. We unfortunately don’t have any clever way of distinguishing events that do and don’t need it. If you access any event in your database(s) it will immediately tell you that it needs a recalculation. Alternatively, you can recalculate the entire database in one go by selecting the “Action” from the top of the Event List screen, but this may take a long time depending on how many events you have. If you have an ongoing series you will need to recalculate all the events in the series for it to work correctly. We hope you accept our apologies for this error.

  • FIX: Multi-run conversion patch 202 was failing if multi-run was setup incorrectly with linear stage start control(s).

 

*** Release 4049 - 7 July 2021 ***

This version will not work on Windows XP.

This is a major release with a large number of database patches

The release introduces the concept of Stage based courses (mainly for MTB Enduro and Downhill races). Multi-Run courses are automatically converted to Stage based courses when you view an existing event. Events that previously used Sub-Stage reporting should now use Stage based courses.

Having one method to define stage based courses will make the setup easier and remove the confusion about when you need to flag legs as excluded or not and where the stage name is added.

Sub-Stage Reporting has been renamed Activity Reporting and should continue to be used for Adventrue Races and for results such as King/Queen of the Mountains.

To avoid confusion with the word Stage we have renamed Multi-Stage Events to Combined Events with a Combined Event being made up of a number of Events rather than Stages.

The User Guide Help has had a major update to reflect the changes and is a very comprehensive document.  It also has multiple examples for setting up courses for MTB Enduro stage based events.

Existing Customers Updating:

This version includes a database update. Once you have updated your database you need to Recalculate the Results for all events (Event List » Actions » Recalculate Results (not Punch Times) on All Events). This will take a while if you have a database with a lot of events in it.
