VERSION 2.28.3 BETA

A new version of Sailwave which introduces some new features

  • Changes have been made to make sub-windows open normally within the area of the main program – this is most useful when you are running with multiple monitors as previously all sub-windows would open on the primary screen although they could be dragged to other screens.  With this version, it should work well even if the Sailwave application is on both screens.
  • Additional information is added to the Help – Log file so as to display the rating file names that the ratings are being loaded from.  It then also displays the total ratings that it has after each one so you can determine how many are being loaded from each file if you wish.

Please report any issues and I will try to fix them

You can download Version 2.28.3  from the link below.  Note this is an exe only.

Please do a full install of 2.28.2 if you don’t have it already and replace the Sailwave.exe with this file renaming it to Sailwave.exe
You may if you wish to rename the original Sailwave.exe to say sailwave2-28-2.exe so you can revert to it if you wish (see below)

Last Page update 07-04-2020 Jon

This is a minor update to 2.28.1 but the installer has been updated to include the Updated PY ratings and an example template for use with the RYA virtual racing.

  • This version is 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.
  • Fixed templates for Autoscaling of Burgee images when using Publish Results V2

This update is supplied as a full install containing the Sailwave.exe version 2.28.2.    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_2.exe file and selecting run as administrator.

If you want to run the World Sailing (ISAF) interface with Wine or on a Mac please see instructions on the Sailwave User Group.

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.

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.
