Known Issue - The following LNDB issue affects View Pro and RTMC Pro when using an LNDB database: If LNDB has been running with a SQL Server 2005 database, the timestamps in the tables will be of type DateTime. If you then upgrade to SQL Server 2008 the DateTime data type for the timestamps is carried over to the 2008 database. However, LNDB expects the timestamps to be of type DateTime2 which has a higher precision than DateTime. This type mismatch causes queries to fail. In order to fix this issue, you will need to use the SQL Server management tools to change the data type for the timestamp columns to DateTime2.
Toolbar Enhancement - Added "Give Feedback on LoggerNet" menu item.

CRBasic Editor Enhancement - The search function now works as follows: If text is highlighted, the user can simply enter F3 or click the Find Next button and the text will be searched for without resorting to the find dialog. The last item searched for will be remembered even if the highlight has been removed. If the highlighted text is changed, the new text will sought after.
CRBasic Editor Enhancement - Bookmarks are now persistent from one CRBasic session to another. Bookmarks are saved when the file is saved.
CRBasic Editor Enhancement - Added functionality where the CRBasic Editor watches the hard drive copies of the files currently open in the Editor. If the date changes on one of the files (i.e., someone copies a new file over the existing one), a message is displayed in the Editor notifying the user that the underlying file has been changed and giving the user the option to reload from the underlying file
CRBasic Editor Enhancement - Added functionality to provide the capability to open a read only screen of a program that is already open in the Editor. This gives the user with very large programs the ability to examine multiple areas of the program at the same time if desired.
CRBasic Editor Enhancement - You can now continue an instruction onto multiple lines by placing the line continuation indicator (a single space followed by an underscore “_”) at the end of the each line that is to be continued.

CRBasic Editor Bug Fix - Fixed a bug so that entering a bookmark does not clear the Undo list.
CRBasic Editor Bug Fix - Fixed a bug so that, for an instruction like If IfTime(245,300,Sec) Then PortSet(7,1), the PortSet instruction is not wiped out when you insert new values in the IfTime instruction.
CRBasic Editor Bug Fix - Fixed a bug where if a statement with parameters is within an "inline" IF statement, the right-click(alt-click) did not bring up the parameter prompt screen.
CRBasic Editor Bug Fix - The CRBasic Editor is now restored from minimized when you click on it from the LoggerNet Toolbar.
RTMC Enhancement - A ValueSynch function has been added to allow you to synchronize the data when displaying data from two different stations.

View Pro Enhancement - You can now view LoggerNet database tables in View Pro.
View Pro Enhancement - Added a new option "View
Lock TimeStamp Column" which will lock the timestamp column on the left of the data in the grid for all files that have a timestamp. This setting is global for all open tables, and persistent due to being stored in the inifiles.
View Pro Enhancement - reated a new common axis for the line graph to show up on the right. Assignment of series to the right Y-axis is made using the popup menu accessed by right clicking a selection in the selection panel and clicking "assign to right axis". Single click selection of a series in independent axis mode has been re-instituted. Clicking on a selection will show its y-axis on the side to which it is assigned. Grid lines only appear by default for the left axes.
View Pro Enhancement - Created a new model for the selection. Selections which are created before a graph has been opened are associated with a universal selection set, denoted in the selected graph combobox by the title "None". This selection set will allow the creation of column, block, and row selections for use in graphs or copy and paste operations. When a new graph is created the selections allowed in that graph type will be moved to the graph and removed from the "None" selection set.
View Pro Enhancement - Improved performance when working with array-based data files.
View Pro Enhancement - You can now deselect columns that were created in a group of multiple columns by clicking their header.

Split Enhancement - Added the ability to use time ranges in the copy condition.
Split Enhancement - Added new "Time Sync to First Record" option to the Other dialog.
CardConvert Enhancement - Added a command line option to CardConvert.
CardConvert Enhancement - Changed the Source and Destination Filename displays to show long filenames with the '..' in the middle instead of the end. This make it easier to see the actual filename.
CardConvert Enhancement - Changed append file check such that file headers that match with warnings append without asking user. Files with severe warning or errors do not append. Log messages are shown in both cases but the user is not asked.
TroubleShooter Enhancement - When the user left clicks a troubleshooter item, a popup menu is now shown to take the user to Setup Screen or Status Monitor to fix the problem, show help regarding the problem and in some cases fix the problem directly.
Network Planner Enhancement - Support has been added for Campbell Scientific's wireless sensors and wireless sensor base.
Network Planner Enhancement - Added support for the send one way data activity for the CR200 series dataloggers.

Network Planner Enhancement - The user can now enter "custom" scale factors in the tool bar combo box.
Network Planner Enhancement - The mouse wheel now scrolls the device palette.
Network Planner Enhancement - Added properties to the phone modem to specify whether the modem is a "custom" type and for the user to specify the reset and init string for that modem.
Network Planner Enhancement - A new layer has been added to the drawing canvas that can control whether activity links are drawn between stations. The visibility of this layer is controlled by a new "View" menu item. This layer becomes automatically visible when the activity tool is selected from the toolbar.
Network Planner Enhancement - Added a new sub-menu, "Layers", under the view menu that will allow the user to control whether the background bitmap, station links, and activity links are displayed.
Network Planner Enhancement - Added support for the SC115 device type.
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a bug where Loggernet configuration failed to work when a USB serial port was involved (such as used with the RF430).
Network Planner Bug Fix - Added code to ensure that the baud rate is set appropriately when a USB serial port is used with LoggerNet
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a bug in the generation of settings for the PakBus/TCP server LoggerNet device where, if more than one adjacent PakBus address was marked to have its link maintained, the setting string would come out malformed (it was missing a closing brace).
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a problem where if two loggers were created that were connected via a phone-rf401 link, the Network Planner would erroneously generate a network map that included a PakBus port beneath the remote phone modem for each of the attached loggers
Network Planner Bug Fix - hanged the behaviour of the centering operation so that the zoom factor is calculated so that all of the model stations will appear on the drawing canvas.
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a bug with generating settings for CR10X-PB, CR23X-PB, or CR510-PB loggers where, if neighbour lists were formatted, the trailing zero needed to terminate them was omitted. This could result in subsequent settings not being accepted by the datalogger.
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a bug where, when the CS I/O ME baud rate setting was generated for an RF401 when that device was attached to a CR10X-PB, the generated baud rate was set to 19200 baud rather than 9600 baud.
Network Planner Bug Fix - Fixed a bug for the NL100 where the wrong baud rate value was generated for the RS485 port when the optimal baud rate should have been 38400 baud

Security Manager Enhancement - Passwords are now case sensitive.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added a new item, "Off-Line Mode" in the file menu that will be enabled for many device types. When the user selects this menu item, the program will enter a session in an off-line mode. The values displayed will be derived summary files stored in the library and referenced in the individual device descriptions.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Support has been added for Campbell Scientific's wireless sensors and wireless sensor base.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added support for the CS450 device type.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added stub support files for the CS120
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Redesigned the settings editor panel used to edit the settings.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added code to set the time stamp for spectral or time series data for the AVW2xx when read from the sensor to match the computer time when the measurement began.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added a button to the AVW2xx diagnosis panel (both on-line and off-line mode) that will allow the user to export the data being displayed in a tab separated file that is suitable for import into MS excel or open office calc.
Device Configuration Utility Enhancement - Added a button on the "Net Services" table of the CR1000/CR3000/CR8xx deployment panel that, when clicked, will bring up a dialog that will allow the user to edit the .csipasswd file on the connected datalogger. If there is no file present, it will create it.
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Fixed a problem with loading an OS to an SDM SIO1.
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Fixed a bug for float and double component types where the max and min values were enforced when they were not specified in the description. This enforcement was not a problem for most types because the default max and min values were set to the full range of a given type. However, for floating point values, the min value was being set to the smallest possible positive value for that type rather than being set to the most negative possible value for that type. The result of this bug was that, when the user attempted to set negative values, these would be rejected.
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Changed the way that locales are managed so that they no longer depend upon the selected language.
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Fixed a bug where the application event dispatcher was being deleted before the one shot timer for the application. This could cause an access violation when the timer attempted to dispatch events when there was no dispatcher.
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Simplified the regular expression used to check the neighbor lists for the various ports on the NL100. The regular expression used previously would fail the check for when used with "1 5 10-20".
Device Configuration Utility Bug Fix - Fixed a bug with string setting components where, if the component value was set directly, the changed flag for that component was not set. This showed up with the CR1000 deployment panel as a failure to set the PakBus/TCP Password setting.
CoraScript Enhancement - Added a new command, make-xml-network-map, with an associated help section. This command can be used to generate an XML structure that describes the current loggernet network map. This structure will include custom phone modems, server settings, devices, device settings, collect areas, and collect area settings.
CoraScript Enhancement - Added an optional parameter, --server-time, to the clock-set command that can be used to specify the time to which the datalogger clock should be set
Data Filer Enhancement - Added the no header format option to the custom collection.
Server Enhancement - Changed the logon transaction so that the password is no longer sent to the server. This fixes an issue where the password was being sent in clear text.
Server Enhancement - Added code to tolerate some warnings that can result from trying to determine whether data can be appended to an existing file. If warnings are generated, these will be logged in the transaction log.
Server Enhancement - Added code that will allow a failure to initialize the TAPI layer to be tolerated. If the tapi layer can not be initialized, all transactions and operations associated with it will now either fail (in the case of dialing) or will return empty lists of tapi lines and/or country codes. This addresses issues that we have encountered with customers being unable to run LoggerNet when the TAPI service is disabled.
Server Enhancement - Added support for a new LgrNet setting, minConfigRewriteInterval, that controls the minimum interval at which the server will automatically attempt to overwrite its configuration file. The default value for this setting has been set to 15 minutes which is larger by a factor of three from the old interval that was used. These changes address complaints from customers with large networks who had observed that the server would appear to "lock up" for up to thirty seconds while the operation was taking place
Server Enhancement - Added code to support the new LgrNet Logon Ex transaction. This transaction should be much more secure than the old logon transaction because the password is not transmitted but rather a digest derived from the password and a server generated random number will be sent. This new transaction uses the same features as the CRAM MD5 authentication protocol used with email servers.
Server Enhancement - Added code to ensure that the sysinifiles directory is backed up when a snapshot is created under the windows version. This will ensure that the taskmaster.ini file as well as other ini files will get backed up and, subsequently, restored.
Server Enhancement - Implemented an optional parameter for the device clock set command that allows the client to specify the time to which the device clock should be set.
Server Enhancement - Added support for the CRS450 device type. This device is a CS450 pressure transducer with datalogger capabilities.
Server Enhancement - Modified the code that records logon attempts in the transaction log so that the IP address of the client is printed along with the application name and user name.
Server Enhancement - Added support for the three new LgrNet settings: applicationDir, workingDir, and dirSeparator.
Server Bug fix - Changed the code that checks the input buffer for a full duplex echo operation so that, if bytes are received but none of these matches the first byte of the echo pattern, these bytes will be read from the buffer, thrown away but the watch dog timer for the operation will not be reset. This has the potential to address a "stuttering" effect that can occur on a link with a lot of latency where the responses from previous communication attempts get processed before the expected response is received.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug associated with serial port support (likely TAPI as well) that could lead to a lock-up.
Server Bug fix - Added code to ignore the hangup delay setting on the PakBus port when it is connected through a phone link. This is needed because, once the "off-line" message is sent to the connected logger, the logger is free to shut down the link from its side. It does little good for us to try to maintain that link under these circumstances and has actually caused a crashing/lockup problem.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug with the XPB (used with CR10X-PB, CR23X-PB, and CR510-PB loggers) implementation of the program file send transaction where the logger transaction timeout was not cleared after receiving a response to a previous send command. If there was a delay in sending the next command, the transaction could time out.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug where, if communications for an RF-TD base became disabled while a send network description operation was active, that operation would not get removed from the base. The result of this bug was that no new network description could be sent thereafter to the RFbase until the loggernet server was shut down.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug with the BMP1 send network description operation where, if the operation is interrupted because of max time on-line expiration, the operation reference kept by the RF base device object was not cleared. This prevented any future attempts to send the network description for that device.
Server Bug fix - Changed the server build script for Linux so that the 64 bit file offsets will be used by the run time library rather than the default of 32 bit file offsets.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a potential bug that could occur if a check for duplicate records was posted but then abandoned by its client (the particular case being addressed was data collection), That check would not get removed from the queue of other checks and, as a result, all new records processing would get stuck for this collect area.
Server Bug fix - Added a state to the BMP1 data polling operation to recognize when we are waiting for a check on the newest record. Also added code in the BMP1 message handler that will prevent us from processing an incoming message when we are not in a state where we are looking for that message.
Server Bug fix - Added virtual methods to the base PakBus node class that can be called when messages are sent to start or end a PakBus session. These methods have been overloaded in class Bmp5::Datalogger to ensure that the clock schedule is honored. This addresses a problem that has been observed with various Fat Spaniel customers that can result in their station times being reported as off.
Server Bug fix - Added a new timeout for BMP1 transactions. The timer for this condition starts when a message is posted for a BMP1 transaction to send. It will get cleared when the router is ready to send that message and it will get reset when any other transaction has a chance to send a message. The purpose of this timer is to guard against the rather rare cases where the RF-TD base can get stuck in a mode where it does not ever raise its RxRdy bit.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a problem in the base class that implements the PakBus serial packet protocol where, if communications became disabled, all links were immediately abandoned with no attempt to send "off-line" serial packet messages. On most link types, this was relatively harmless. However, on RF95 type links, this could lead to problems because the datalogger would not drop the CS I/O ME line so the subsequent attempt to "undial" the link was doomed to fail.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug where the hangup delay setting was not honoured for the PakBus/TCP server device type.
Server Bug fix - Added an optimization to the code that generates the parts of the configuration XML structure associated with device and collect area settings. The SettingCollection class as well as the Setting class will now cache the XML structure when the settings are read or are generated for the first time. From that time forward, the only parts of the structure that have to be changed are the parts associated with settings that have changed. This has the potential to address a problem where it was taking upwards of 2 minutes to generate the XML structure.
Server Bug fix - Added a optimization with the statistics collections used by devices. Previously, the statistics table name was generated each time that it was needed from the device name and the statistics type name. This could represent a significant CPU load each time that statistics needed to be updated.
Server Bug fix - Added code to the operation in the cache thread that checks for the uniqueness of "new" records received from BMP1 and PakBus dataloggers that will catch any exception thrown during that operation and ensure that the "client" collect area gets the notification that the check is complete. Also added code in this event to post a failure message in the comms logs since otherwise, the error could slip by unnoticed. This may have been the cause of some lockups.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug where, if a session was closed on which a clock set transaction was waiting (not yet active), that transaction would not get deleted. The result of this was that, when the clock set was complete, the server would attempt to report the outcome for a transaction and session that was no longer valid. This could lead to a crash
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug associated with restoring device and collect area settings where, if a setting was not stored in the configuration file when the network map was restored, the cached_xml reference for that setting would not be set when the setting needed to be written. The result of this bug was that, under some conditions, attempts to save the network map would fail.
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug in the CoraServer destructor that would throw an exception resulting in a Linux segment violation when the server was not startable (this was due to a file write permissions error in one test case but can also be due to exceeding file system quotas).
Server Bug fix - Fixed a bug where automated clock check/sets were not working for NTCIP-ESS type devices.
Server Bug fix - Added code in the link failure event handler for the root level device class (serial ports, TCP serial ports, etc.) to avoid calling on_link_failure() or changing the line state if an open is pending. This code was already setting a one second timer following which it would report an open failure (this delay was to avoid resource exhaustion that could occur under some race conditions). If another request was made while the delay was pending, that second open attempt could get prematurely clobbered when the timed failure event was handled.
