What's New in v2.1.1
  • Recorded motion data can now be exported to .csv (comma separated values) or .txt files.
  • Full support for up to 16 sensors.
  • About dialog now displays version numbers of all installed USB drivers, as well as library and tracker firmware versions.
  • Sensor out-of-map condition displayed graphically by stippled sensor image in graphics view.
Bug Fixes

  • Device->Select Startup Configuration error corrected.
  • Device->Device Configuration Source Mounting Frame type-in errors corrected.
  • Device->Device Configuration Filters doesn't lose previous settings when filters disabled.

SDK v2.1.3
What's new in v2.1.3
  • Fully supports Patriot trackers as well as Liberty trackers with 4 to 16 sensors.
  • Added an internal running "HostFrameCount" that is reset each time continuous mode is started.  Value of the HostFrameCount can be queried or manually reset through PDIdev methods.
  • Error code "level" field has been added to ePIErrorCode values.  A level of zero (0) is the highest level, indicating a failure of some sort.  A level of one (1) indicates a non-fatal condition.
  • WM_PI_RAWDATA_WARNING Windows message added to report non-fatal runtime conditions, such as sensor out of mapped area.
Bug Fixes
  • PDIdev::WhoAmISensor() has been modified to take sensor number '0' (zero) as a parameter to retrieve the WhoAmI information from the source.
  • Error messages from "Set" commands are now received over RS-232 connection to trackers.
  • Floating-point comparison relaxed so that floating point tracker settings are not erroneously reported as errors.
  • CPDIdev::ConnectUSB() finds and establishes USB connection properly now.
