Version 2.2 Beta 1
« on: July 24, 2006, 11:13:38 PM »
Given the amount of underlying code change in this next version, I thought it a good idea to get a little bit more of the "real-life" testing before making version 2.2 generally available.  And I figure those who browse and post on the Tournament Director forums have a higher than average interest in the software, so who better to test it?

If you're a brave soul and would like to test the software, read on:

- "Beta" software is not "alpha" software.  Alpha software is known to be incomplete.  Beta software is (supposed to be) complete.  This is what I will be posting in this section for download.  The "beta" version(s) of the Tournament Director 2.2 are complete, and I believe I have found all the existing bugs.  However, additional testers will likely hit scenarios I have inadvertently missed and will hopefully help to uncover any bugs I may have not yet found.

- If you run the software in a live tournament, be prepared for problems.

- Version 2.2 saved tournaments are NOT backwards compatible.  You will not be able to load your version 2.2 tournaments into the Tournament Director 2.0, 2.1, 2.1.1, 2.1.2, etc.

- You can have more than one version of the software installed, just select a different disk location and different Start Menu path for each one.  However, when you wish to uninstall one of them, you should use the Uninstall link in your Start Menu for the corresponding version.  There will only be one entry in the Add/Remove Programs dialog, and it will uninstall the most recently installed version.  Also, uninstalling will remove your license information, if you are a registered user of the software, so keep your registration information handy so you can re-enter it the next time you start the software.

- Please post any comments you have.  If you have problems, post them here or email them to support@thetournamentdirector.net.  Please post your comments if you experience no problems, too.  It's always good to get a perspective on how stable the software is.

- Thank you in advance for your participation.

How long do you have in mind to be in Beta?

Thanks

Only as long as it takes.  I'll end the beta and release it as 2.2 as soon as I feel it's gotten a good workout.  Typically when the ratio of reported bugs to the amount of use (I believe) it is getting gets low enough.

Do you have a list of the changes from the latest release version?

Cheers, Carl.

Sure.  You can also always find this in the "changes.txt" files that is installed with the software.


Version 2.2
======================================================================
New Features:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
- Cells, rows and columns now each have their own background image
  property
- Cells, rows and columns now each have their own set of HTML styles
  that can be applied
- All "lists" now have adjustable columns with column headers/titles
  that remain in view when the list is scrolled
- Column names remain visible on Player Rankings page when the list
  scrolls
- Columns on Players tab, Stats tab, and Player Rankings tab can be
  renamed
- Most player list dialogs now respond to hotkeys (for example,
  pressing R jumps to the first player name beginning with R)
- Added hotkey actions for jumping directly to any tab on the Settings
  page
- Added option to sort Player Rankings by chip count
  (sort by rank first, then chip count)
- Added "Backup preferences" to backup options
- Added preferences to remove paging from Players, Database, and Stats
  tabs
- Added add-on and rebuy counts to the Add-on Player and Rebuy Player
  dialogs
- Added each player's table and seat to Bust Player Out dialog
- Added <rebuytimeleft>, <addontimeleft> and <inlinerankings> tokens
- Added warnings to Problems dialog for under-allocated and
  over-allocated pot
- Added "orient" attribute to <chipleaders> token
- Added ability to accept partial player movement suggestions
- Added Income Sources dialog to Stats Player dialog that displays
  a breakdown of the player's money and points and how they were
  earned


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Bugs Fixed:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
- If "Automatically suggest table movements" preference was disabled,
  the Unbalanced Tables icon didn't always display
- Manually initiating a table balance from the Tournament Page,
  Seating Chart page, or the Player Rankings Page did nothing
- Hit count (and other) data could be inaccurate if players in the
  tournament performed a rebuy while still in the tournament
- An error sometimes occurred when importing players into the
  database or the tournament
- Tournament history text was truncated for the action of buying
  players into the tournament
- Selected league was not set when adding a new player to the
  database
- Some areas of the software incorrectly displayed values that had
  fractional parts of less than .1
- Fixed some minor display bugs in some dialogs
- An occur sometimes occurred when minimizing the window (when in
  full-screen mode)
- An error occurred when the hotkey corresponding to the Set Chip
  Counts dialog was pressed with no players having yet bought-in
- Fixed a minor "Merge Players" bug
- Players tab and Stats tab column choosers displayed "BuyinRakeN",
  "FixedRakeN", "RebuysRakeN", and "AddOnsRakeN" instead of using
  the rake name, and only displayed one rake if multiple rakes were
  defined
- Stats tab mistaked other files with names of length 4 for
  tournament files.
- The Balance Tables dialog and the Show Last Player Movement dialog
  did not scroll horizontally when the table was wider than the
  dialog (with very long player names)
- Stats did not consider adjustments to winnings, and therefore a
  player's winnings were incorrect on the Stats tab if (and only if)
  the player's winnings were adjusted in any of the tournaments
  for which they accumulated statistics.

Thanks for the info, Corey.  I figured there probably would be a .txt file embedded with the installation file, but that kind of created a catch-22 - I wanted to know what was changed prior to installing the beta version.

Cheers, Carl.
