Changes

Version 2.24.0 is a relatively small but  important update on 2.23.4

Changes since the previous release (2.23.4) includes the following:-

  • Support for Percentage penalty to be added based on DNF score (as well as the previous method based on number of boats in the series)  This was changed in RRS 2017-2020.
    If you are using SCP and or ZFP in your results you should change the scoring codes to use the  new DNF based calculations if you are scoring to RRS2017-2020.  In most calculations it doesn’t make any difference but there are some where it makes 1 point difference due to the rounding.
  • Support for PRP (Post Race Penalty – Arbitration) as used by Techno293 Fleet
    “The race score for a board that takes a Post-Race Penalty shall be the score she would have
    received without that penalty made worse by 30% of the score for DNF, rounded to the nearest
    whole number (0.5 rounded upwards), but not more than half of the difference between the
    board’s score before applying the penalty and the score for DNF.”
  • Updated the plug-in interface to World Sailing for reporting results directly to World Sailing (ISAF)
  • Corrected Black flag  rule to reference 30.4 instead of 30.3

 

Sailwave site now uses https

The Sailwave site now uses the https secure protocol for its communication.  You will now see the locked padlock in the address bar when using the Sailwave site.  SSL certificates are courtesy of LetsEncrypt.  Some of the major browsers are expected to give warnings on any site that allows input from next month and also non ssl sites will be ranked lower.  This upgrade should avoid these issues for users.

Changes

Version 2.23.4 has been available to users for sometime now who follow the Sailwave User Group and has proven to be stable and with many new features since added since 2.19.8
Changes since the previous release (2.19.8) includes the following:-

  • Enhanced highlighting of the top 3 competitors – This now even works for high-point scoring. Use the effect HighlightWins3v3, or you can still use HighlightWins3 if you are using flights where ranking can be not appropriate.
  • New Installer which adds shortcuts to the Sailwave data – If you don’t wish to the have Sailwave data link on the Desktop simply delete it.
  • Ability to publish results as points with the trailing ‘0’s suppress so results become 1 2 3 instead of 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 – Choose which you prefer
