    • JUN/07/2014, release 3: License Manager added, to allow new features as OBDII

    SportDyno V3.7

    • JUN/06/2014, release 21: Enhanced filtering added on roller channel to avoid the problems caused by bad geartooth, such as chain sprockets, etc. Anyway we strongly recommend to use a geartooth from a starter motor, due to the flat teeth
    • APR/26/2014, release 20: Default behaviour for saving new files in the latest open file's folder can be now disabled to save files on the folder selected by the user with the 'change directory' option
    • APR/26/2014, release 20: "Group Colors" button has been added to the Tool Bar, so all channels of the same type use the same colour.In this way the visualization of several tests at same time is more clear.
    • APR/26/2014, release 20: This release fixes an error about small 'yellow leaks' when moving the 'yellow label'
    • APR/26/2014, release 20: This release fixes an error with the options 'stop when higher / lower'

    • SEP/09/2013, release 15: This release fixes a bug on the creation of the distribution package
    • SEP/02/2013, release 14: This release fixes a runtime error on v3.7.13
    • JUN/12/2013, release 13: Start/Stop Mode: 'Reversed Test' Stop Mode added (a test which starts at high rpm and is being braked until certainminimum value). It also works for SP4 RAMP mode. This version had a runtime error when restoring SP4 data, it has been removed from server.
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: Start/Stop Mode: "Stop when lower" stop mode now also works for RAMP mode test (previously it only worked for inertial tests).
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: Start/Stop Mode: Roller rpm has been added for engine dynamometer.
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: Added an option for ratio calculation: recalculate ratio value at the end. Most tests have a slighty different ratio value after the test than during the warm-up phase due to slipage caused by torque. Now this is the default option, but previous way is still available at advanced options.
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: "Post-record" feature added. The program already stored the previous data to the starting of the test in order to improve the filters initialisation, now it also stores a few samples after the test is finished in order to have enough data for the filters and make all channels lines have the same lenght. Previously torque and power lines were a bit shorter at the end of the test.
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: In a previous version the filter settings were removed from the Configuration Window, since we consider all test must be done under the same filtering conditions. Now the "graph" filter has been added again, but in Advanded Configuration tab, and the filter range has been limited to "2 - 9", and it has been translated to frequency, inorder to better understunding the effect of the filtering on the tests.
    • MAY/23/2013, release 12: this release fixes an internal updating bug

    • NOV/12/2012, release 5: Compatibility options added to Configuration Window.
    • NOV/12/2012, release 5: some bugs fixed. [this release has been removed]
