Release Notes for JMRI 3.3.4 release

Date: April 14, 2013

From: Bob Jacobsen

Subject: Test version 3.3.4 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:

Older warnings

This release and all future releases will not support the NCE serial interface running at 19,200 baud.

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.

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

Known problems with this release

In operations, using the new destination feature can sometimes cause the program to decide too early that all cars for a location have been processed.

NCE USB incorrectly blocks Ops Mode Loco programming. Fixed in 23229.
