Version 37: Behind the scenes

37Once again, a new version is upon us. Most of the changes in this one are hidden changes, changes that prepare us for features we’ll release later in the year, but there are a few good things that will help you right now:

  • We fixed the “zoom to lap” button in the track map. There was an annoying issue where sometimes it would zoom out a lot, or zoom in too much. This doesn’t happen anymore.
  • Importing is now faster. Your results depend on your computer of course, but in one measurement I went from 20 seconds to 6 seconds.
  • The slip graph would sometimes not show the split lines. This is now fixed.
  • Some people had problem installing OCD on older Macs. I think we got to the bottom of this, and it should work now on all Macs that run Mac OS X 10.6 and up.
  • When holding the mouse pointer over the session header on the left side, in Lap Selection, a tooltip appears showing you the name of the session. You can use this to identify the right session quickly when you have many of them open at the same time.
  • Units are now shown with square brackets around them. We know that’s the tiniest of changes, but this is the correct way to display units.
  • Finally, we improved the security of the automatic update system.

By the way, we try to time our releases so that most of the time they happen early in the week. Today is a perfect example of that. The reason we do this is so that our updates don’t interrupt your race weekends. If you have feedback on this schedule, please let us know!

As always, you can get the new version from the downloads page, or simply restart your old version of Off Camber Data. For feedback, feel free to just comment on the blog, or send us an email at!
