Release Notes


New Features:

  • Added new “Surrounds/Context Model Generation” feature, via project resources page, which generates a surrounds model from Open Street Maps (OSM) data and makes it available for the user to download as an STL file.

  • Fixed a bug where username check on login was case-sensitive

UI Improvements:

  • Project details (metadata) can now be edited after creation

  • Fixed a bug where the CFD parameters would change from Full back to Wind-Only after changing a season’s value
  • Updated the project screen to support returning more than 17 matching projects when using the project search feature

New Features:

  • Users are now required to accept the EULA before using the software
  • Added ability to delete a saved camera
  • Project search functionality now searches all project fields instead of just ‘name’

  • Removed default Extra Season on CFD parameters form

This release has a number of minor fixes and enhancements.

New Features:

  • Added support for “Subtitle” to color legends. This means we can have two sets of text in the legends when set up correctly in the manifest (ie Name of the chat as the title, and seasons and other qualifiers as sub title)
