Version 98: Track Harder

98For Off Camber Data, this is the 98th time we release a new version, but it is only the second release with our partners from Track Attack. Predictably, we found a lot of things to fix with the new features, so we went to work and fixed as many of them as we could:

  • A lot of performance fixes. Especially on Windows, there is a problem with performance when synchronizing many sessions at once. To deal with this problem, we slowed down the speed of the upload, so that the program remains usable. That means that uploads take a long time, at least until we find a proper solution. If you have many hundreds or even thousands of sessions, we recommend you let it run for a few hours once, so that it will catch up.
    We know there are other performance problems in the program. We have some more fixes in the pipeline, but couldn’t get them ready in time for this release. Watch this space for future updates!
  • Tags now synchronize properly between different computers.
  • Synchronization can now be paused. If you are at the track and your internet connection is really slow or expensive, you can click in the bottom right and select “Pause syncing”, to turn off synchronization completely.
  • When you select a run, OCD now shows you the synchronization status of each run. That way, you can make sure that your runs are properly uploaded to the server.

We also made one change that has nothing to do with Track Attack: The ALFANO version can now parse the CSV format from the mobile app. This should help out all the people who use both the mobile app and OCD at the same time.

Finally, we are upgrading all users of the OCD Starter Edition for Unipro to the Advanced Edition, for free. If you are one of those users, you don’t have to do anything to get the new version. When you get the update, you will see lots of new features and modes. We hope you’ll like it!

As always, you can get the new version from the downloads page, or simply restart your old version of Off Camber Data. If you would like to contribute, feel free to comment on the blog, or send us an email at feedback@offcamberdata.com!
