Zone4 Version 5.6 - Some EI/Networking fixs
Release Date: Feb 7, 2007

A few bugs have been reported in the release of 5.5 and this upgrade fixes the following issues.

  • Zone4 has been in development of a new Electronic Timing Interface System that is being designed to replace the old EI system.  While this new system is being designed and built, it is being setup to run side by side with the old system to allow for earlier deployment and testing.     Unfortunately, when the Commit Setup command is executed, Zone4 would automatically pop up the Timer Setup screen, and in 5.5 is accidentally popped up the new unfinished EI instead of the old one.  The simple workaround is to just close the screen and click the main checklist button "8. Time Entry" which properly displays the old system for now.  This has been corrected in 5.6.
  • There was also an issue that has probably been present since the beginning of the year related to the new network communication system.  Starting in 5.0, Zone4 has introduced a more robust event logging and network communication system to allow for reduced network traffic and better reporting and tracking of what each computer on the network is doing with a file.  There were several minor issues found with the system that did not automatically advance the Checklist on networked computers and did not automatically update some of the race file settings.  This has been fixed.
  • Related to the above network issues, but something that has always been a limitation in Zone4, when you browsed to a network location and double clicked on a .rac file to open it in Zone4, Zone4 would open but it would not automatically load the file and instead just opened regularly. The only method of opening a network file was to use the File Open command in Zone4 and find the file that way.  This issue has been resolved in 5.6 so double clicking a networked file location will open it in Zone4.
