Release Notes for JMRI 3.3.2 release

Date: February 2, 2013

From: Bob Jacobsen

Subject: Test version 3.3.2 of JMRI/DecoderPro is available for download.

Notes:

This is a test release. Please post a note if you encounter any new or old bugs! And please back up your JMRI files before installing this, in case you want to go back to an earlier version.

This is the next in a series of test versions. We expect this series to end in a JMRI 3.4 production release at mid-year.

Some of the changes involved are quite extensive. They may require a certain amount of experience before they are working well. Therefore, this test version should be considered experimental.

JMRI is now only available under the GNU General Public License. For more information, please see our copyright and licensing page.

New warnings for this version:

The decoder definition files have been extensively reworked for this release to reduce their size and allow them to be translated to other languages. Please keep an eye out for any inadvertent changes to the definitions that might have been introduced.

Older warnings

This release, and all other releases in this cycle, require Java 1.6.

Known problems with this release

None at the time of this release.

Changes since test release 3.3.1:

Fixed speedometer opening three little blank windows.

Walt Thompson fixed a bunch of links in the help pages.

Walt Thompson improved the help file linking.

More graphics in the help pages will not display in a desktop web browser when clicked.

Updated Standalone LocoNet help page information for LocoBuffer-USB and LocoBuffer-II use of LocoNet RailSync wires.

Fixed a problem that could result in roster entries sharing a backing file if you export an entry and then re-import it into the same JMRI instance. If you have done this, in the past, the fix is to "Recreate Roster Index" from the debug menu.

Dan Boudreau made the following changes to operations:

Steve Todd added an option to the Communications Monitor windows to allow users to filter out unwanted message types.

Egbert Broerse provided definitions for the Rio Grande signals as of 1965.

Paul Bender made some internal improvements to the XPressNet programmers.

Michael Mosher update the BLI and NCE decoder definitions
