Lucid v3.6 Updated

Lucid v3.6

 

A new Lucid v3.6 update is now available. It adds extra features and corrects several minor bugs. Changes include:

JavaScript (browser) player – new features added

The following features that were included in the Java applet player (that is no longer supported) have recently been added to the replacement JavaScript player.

  • Shortcuts – this function, like the “Best” function, provides a quicker route to an identification. When Shortcuts is activated, the Player searches for features that, if answered, will provide an immediate shortcut to an identification.
  • Why discarded? – indicates those features responsible for a selected entity being discarded.
  • Expanding and collapsing features – This feature has been tweaked to be more in line with the previous Java player.
  • Ranked mode – Tip: Ranked mode (sorting entities on a percentage match) has been supported from the initial release of the JavaScript player, however the default export option is the discarded/remaining mode. You can set the Player to use the ranked (with percentage matched), by setting this in key’s options, via the Lucid Builders export dialog.

Lucid Builder v3.6

  • Saving – changes to the save process have been made to help prevent data loss if an unexpected error occurs. For example, disconnection of a network or USB drive. Or powerloss during the save process or a software bug.
  • Bug fixes & other changes – numerous minor bug fixes and enhancements have been completed. More detailed messages and improved dialogs for critical errors, if the unexpected occurs.

Lucid JavaScript Player Update

The first edition of the JavaScript Lucid Player has now been completed and is undergoing final testing. This will be the replacement for the existing Java Applet Player. The new JavaScript Player allows users instant playing of keys with no plug-ins required!

We’ve also been working hard to optimise the Players performance. It is currently loading and playing keys 30-50% faster than the Java Applet edition.

More information on this will be coming in the next few weeks.
