8.1.0 :)

I’ve started work on what will be one of the biggest changes to the way Xinorbis operates in its history.

At the moment, there is a big difference between the Folder History data and displays, and the “live” data and displays. It’s been that way for a very long time, and it’s worked well. These decisions have shaped Xinorbis in so many ways; I look at things now I wonder why they’re like that, they could be much better. They’ve forced design choices that could have been better.

However, I think it’s quite a bit more complicated than it needs to be. The next version (which will likely be 8.1.0 and released sometime in July) will remove the clunkyness of the interface, and remove the unnecessary differences between the two main features.

There will be a choice of data source: Folder History or Live (though this could be imported data too). Each display will then operate on the current source. It will still mean that both sets of data can be loaded at once, and there will be no loss of charts/tables/reports/etc. It will mean a tidier interface, and Folder History will get access to everything that the live data does.

As usual, if you have any specific requests or suggestions then send me an email.
