VERSION 2.28.1

A new version of Sailwave which introduces some new features

  • This is the first version non-beta to be digitally signed with a certificate.  Hopefully, it will reduce the number of false positives that are generated by anti-virus software.  You will at least be guaranteed that no one has tampered with the install file.
  • This version is the first one non-beta published on the Sailwave site to be built with a new version of the compiler and this enables touch control to scroll the data around.  So if you have a touch-enabled device give it a go.
  • RORC high point scoring is in Beta in this version.  The RORC factors are not implemented for RORC series as yet.
  • This Version also has Iceboat support in Beta.
  • The import from CSV has been reworked and expanded – see documentation on the Sailwave web site
  • The install also contains updated versions of SWCList, ISAF (World Sailing) interface and the SWHelper for NHC scoring which now supports internal calculations when you are using PY numbers.
  • You will also notice some cosmetic and font changes.
  • There are improvements in the RYA PY returns and some bug fixes.
  • New Rating files are included as are the additional information for the PY returns.
  • Correction of DNE description.

This update is supplied as a full install containing the Sailwave.exe version 2.28.1.    You need to download from the link below and run the installer.  If you have any issues installing please try running the installer as administrator by right-clicking the sw2_28_1.exe file and selecting run as administrator.

Huw has tested the installer under Linux without any problems but points out if you are using Wine you should be using at least version 3.0.  If you want to run the World Sailing (ISAF) interface with Wine or on a Mac please ask for help or see instructions on the Sailwave User Group.

Some features all users will notice are:-

  • A new feature is a Search/Filter box to the ribbon so that it is possible to selectively display competitors and easily find competitors should you wish to edit them.   As you type in the Search/ Filter box only competitors that match what has been typed are displayed.  This is updated live rather like a Google search.  Clear the box to ensure all competitors are displayed.
    Any full or partial match in Fleet, Flight, Class, Division, Boat, HelmName, CrewName, SailNo, AltSailNo, Club will cause the competitor to be displayed

 

 

 

  • The Tools – Set competitor field and Tools – Seed competitor field now use the name you supplied for renaming the columns.  Previously if you renamed a column you had to remember and use the default field name.  This is now all handled by the Sailwave software for you.

Flights

Sailwave supports flights as an advanced feature, but to make it simpler for the normal user where flights are not used, they are not shown unless you enable them by ticking the box, in the Setup – User Interface – Appendix LE addendum C

Flights are stored for each competitor and each race.
There is also a Flights field which belongs to the competitor which is their current flight.

Flight allocation can be easily viewed by using

View Flight assignments

Flight allocation is normally done using the Tools – Flight assignments

Flight assignment tool

Tooltips are available to assist you.

You can also use the Tools – Set competitor field to set flights

Tools setting flights

From version 2.25.5 onwards it is also possible to import flights from a csv file.  This uses the File – Import results from csv file…

Typically you would have a csv something like this:-

sample flight allocation csv

You don’t have to use Sailno you can use anything that uniquely identifies the competitor which may be multiple columns
