Break 1.3 Beta 6 Available

Postby Siegfried » Mon Jun 09, 2008 7:45 am

Just to keep people in the loop, at the moment a major revision of Break is being worked on. The five-slot work tracking is being upgraded to about 200+ (it's using the LunaBase database so it's technically 4 Billion, but some limit might be set as otherwise the report calculations might take too long), the report window will be completely re-written and most alert windows will be replaced with bubble tips to reduce work interruptions. However, since it is such a major revision there won't be a half-finished beta release as it won't work at all until it's about 90% finished.

Expect a beta in under 2 weeks... :wink:

As expected, this was optimistic! But the first Beta is ready now and it can be downloaded from here. It took longer than planned as it needed to be at a workable stage for testing reasons. Thus functionally wise it is almost finished, with mostly tweaking left. Even so further work on Break will be held off until it has been used in normal situations for at least a week.

Progress on Break is going well and there is now a second Beta. It's still classed as un-finished, but we have been using it during this time without any major problems. (Any minor problems we found were fixed in this version. :wink: )

There is no completion date at this stage, but we do hope that it will be released this month.

Another day, another Break Beta and sit-rep! Progress is going well. An auto-target function was just added and it seems to work OK. There are a few more functions to add so hopefully in under a week there will be a final beta. I doubt that it will be released this month; but the first half of August seems likely.

A new beta has been uploaded. This one is feature complete and is only missing the read-me. Break 1.3 is scheduled to be released on the 6th of August.

Tweaks and more can be found in the new beta! (The biggest additions are an enhanced auto-backup and improvements to the upgrade routine.)
