Timing & Scoring version 2.7
A new version of Timing & Scoring is available. We recommend to update your Timing & Scoring software to version 2.7 to make sure you don’t run into any issues on race day.

The biggest change is that we now have a version for Timing Only and the full Timing & Scoring functionality.

What’s new in this version?

Changes in version 2.7 compared to Timing & Scoring 2.6.3:

  • The HandReader is now supported in Timing & Scoring
  • Two different installers will be available to be installed on your computer: one to install Timing Only functionalities and another for full Timing & Scoring functionalities.
  • GUI doesn’t freeze when the TCP/IP exporter has a huge number of passings in the queue and the server is not sending confirmation messages.
  • The TCP/IP exporter now accepts $ as the end of a message character (as indicated in the TPC/IP protocol).
  • A bug is solved where, in some cases, the internal database from previous Timing & Scoring versions isn’t recovered.
    • Internal Timing & Scoring database has been changed and it is not compatible with previous versions. That means:
      You can’t open an ‘.event’ file created in Timing & Scoring 2.7.0 with any of the previous versions.
    • If you open an ‘.event’ file created in a previous version using Timing & Scoring 2.7.0, the system will convert the internal database to the newest version and a pop up message will be shown on the screen. In this case, you should decide if you want to maintain a copy of the old file (to be able to open with previous versions of Timing & Scoring) or overwrite the original file with the new version (in that case you won’t be able to open that file with an old Timing & Scoring version).

The complete release notes can be found in the Partner Portal and are included in the download package along with the installer and an updated manual.
