Roughly eight months has passed from the release of Robin Hood Solver v2.0 – which now happily runs on dozens of computers worldwide.
While we did not have a major release since then, this does not mean that our development team has been idle. Robin Hood Solver has received ten smaller updates since the release of v2.0, released every two to four weeks. As of today, the current version of Robin Hood Solver is v2.0.11 – you can see that easily for yourself if you download a demo version.
What have we changed? A lot of small things (and several large ones). Most changes were prompted by the comments and requests from our users – so, if you test drive Robin Hood Solver and have a suggestion to make, don’t hesitate to send us a message or post a request to our support site.
Here is the list of most important changes in releases up to and including v2.0.11:
- Welcome screen enables you to quickly return to existing projects and to access tutorial and manual
- Robin Hood Solver now uses SI units instead of proprietary units
- all new Functions dock makes scripting with Lua easier
- color palettes are now saved with the project (in initial release, this feature was not implemented – users needed to manually reapply palettes after reopening the project)
- color contours differentiate color areas on objects and make potential/field visualizations even more impressive and even more easier to interpret at a single glance
- improvements to palette handling: users now control the palette using single property (‘color correction’)
- many improvements to dataset handling: better export options, possibility to hide visual datasets from the scene etc.
- it is now possible to automatically create objects out of imported rough (corrugated) surfaces
- all new text-box for editing properties in scientific notation now accepts any kind of input and interprets it correctly (enter 4,445776E-02 or 0,4445776; Robin Hood Solver will get it)
- snapping of objects is now turned off by default: to turn it on, hold the Ctrl key while dragging the object
In addition to that, our developers have spent a lot of effort in finding and correcting small bugs and implementing subtle appearance changes which greatly improve experience of using Robin Hood Solver. Check it out for yourself – get a demo now!
