Centurion Version History 1.30

Build #0001 09/28/06

New release using Borland Developer Studio 2006. This required multiple changes to a variety of program areas to make it compatible with the new development studio. The result is a faster running program with less problems and quicker development time.

Other major changes include:

In addition, the following minor changes and bug fixes have been made:

  • Added ability to create New ASCII version of WIM data (when opening a binary file).
  • Fixed problem not resetting binary file read on the text file viewer.
  • Limited opening of created export files to a max of 20 at a time. Also fixed problem with invalid characters in Site ID causing export to fail.

  • Fixed problem with invalid characters in Site ID causing Save Ass… on a report to not work.
  • Fixed problem not starting from the correct report last type page when downloading Volume data (for example) after displaying binned data with the New Reports button.
  • Added new User Image to bottom of all reports. This image can be a company logo or any other graphic you wish to appear at the bottom of a report (similar to the Organization name).

  • Changed the format of the main menu and toolbars to a newer scheme.

Build #0002 10/05/06

This version contains the following feature changes:

  • Added specifying a COM p-ort to check for NMEA GPS data. If found, software will feed this automatically into the Info Line 1 & 2 values during counter setup. See Section 4.c for more information.

This is accessed by opening a binary download file (which displays the text equivalent), right clicking anywhere on the text, and selecting “Edit Original Site ID”.
