Build 3.1.116_1707_0515_3108       6th July 2017

Fixes and improvements:
 General:
- Data Entry - Blank Text strings are shown as '[ ]', but for data entry they are now truly blank, avoiding the possibility of entering '[ ]' as a batch number (for example)
- GDW - On Windows 10 computers, Full Screen mode shifted the GDWs to the left
- GDW - Using Edit->Replace on a screen does not mark it as needing to be saved
- GDW - Some screen swaps cause delays with full-repaints
- Languages - German language resource problems fixed
- Logging - Normally items are scanned at twice the Log Rate. For fast log rates, this becomes intrusive, so for log rates 10sec and faster, the scan rate is the same as the log rate
- Import - Importing Projects without GDWs could cause incorrect import of Strategy Events
 Trend Charts:
- A corrupted Chart Note file can cause a crash shortly after SpecView starts as the Trend Chart Backfill encounters the corruption. It now skips over the corruption and resumes reading chart notes
- Chart notes entered on a Remote would not appear on a Local after the local had been in Edit mode Online
- Crash when adding pens to a Trend Chart where the pen was an Enum and had incorrectly specified enum values
- Pen pointer trails leaking resources sometimes
- Trend Chart cursors can now be placed during Runtime using right-click
 Passwords
- In Edit Mode ONLINE, selecting a button to be available at a given password level would de-select all other items. Offline was OK
 Batches
- Batch tags would be removed from Batch Historical Replay screens at the end of batch replay
- Printing batches after they end now correctly prints the situation before batch end. See also new Button Attribute 'Print Batch Last Values'
 Historical Replay
- Historical replay can now be set to auto-close to prevent users from leaving it running
- Historical Replay could sometimes crash if there was severe corruption in a log file due to hard-disk sector faults. It now skips correctly over the corrupted data and continues
 Strategy Controller
- Events not triggering at startup reliably if lots of startup event actions are still being processed
 Remotes
- Certain Log Report filename settings could crash the Local when a Remote did a Log File Convert
 Modbus
- New OVERLOAD driver command to combat the 19117 errors when very heavily overloaded
- Corrected 19501 errors when downloading to Recipe items
 Honeywell HC900
- HC900 Import incorrectly mapped the SPS #1 block with some incorrect addresses.
 

Build 3.1.108_1604_0814_3108       10th April 2017

Fixes and improvements:
 General:
- Soft licenses - new purchases of SpecView will not require a hardware (USB) dongle, instead soft-licences have been implemented. Existing USB dongles will continue to work.
- Object Menu - the setting of 'Show Objects' should be remembered from one run to the next
 Trend Charts:
- Trend Chart setup dialog box would crash if the same pen was on the chart twice
 Passwords:
- Data Entry Boxes could be closed automatically uder certain circumstances related to password levels.
- Spurious 'Password Level 8' message appeared
 Quicklist:
- Save does not work after the first time
 Import:
- DateTime Variables are seemingly not found after Import to appear in the Log Report date/time lists
 Batches:
- Batch Chooser Window is incorrectly sized on some systems
- Batch Replay does not work on the Remotes - Menu grayed
 Recipe:
- Recipe crash when loading a recipe for variables that have been deleted from the project
 Modbus:
- Post Write Delay (PWD) causes lockup with Scaling Of Numbers (SON) on Serial comms
 Honeywell HC900:
- The import of HCDesigner files was not applying the Bool Senses as defined in the file (such as 'Off' means 'Stopped')
 Drivers:
- Yokogawa - driver for the early uR1000 and uR1800 driver fixed
- Improvements to drivers for: Dynisco, Eurotherm Modbus, Eurotherm Mini-8, Procon, Watlow F4T, West Plus, Yokogawa Modbus, RKC Instruments and Autometers
