Version 1.0.30 Update

Version 1.0.30 Update

Postby jeff » Wed Aug 06, 2008 3:27 pm

A new update is available in My BeerTools.

After downloading the latest file from My BeerTools. The best way to install updates for the PC version is simply to run the installer. It will replace the old application, leaving preferences and databases untouched.

Same principle for the Mac. Just replace your entire BeerTools Pro folder (likely in your Applications folder) with the new one.

            recipes.
[New] [All] Added option to specify heating in the mash vessel
            or heating in a separate vessel for picnic cooler
            mash setups when using the strike temperature
            calculator in the calculators window.

v1.0.27 2007-05-25

[Fix] [All] Database update sequence updated to reflect changes
            in the database software fixing a problem that
            caused integer fields to be ignored during an
            update.
[Chg] [All] Time to heat fields are disabled when a heat source
            is selected in the Mash In, Direct Heat and
            Decoction editors.
[Chg] [All] If the .btp extension is omitted by the user, it is
            it is automatically appended to the file name when
            saving files.

v1.0.26 2007-05-02

[Fix] [Win] Corrected font size for values displayed under the
            guideline column in the style panel.
[Fix] [All] Restored the "type" designation for lager and mixed
            styles in the database.
[Fix] [All] Corrected Cl- ion calculation for additions of
            CaCl2 and CaCl2*2H2O mineral salts in the water
            chemistry panel.

v1.0.25 2007-04-16

[Fix] [All] Fixed elevation text overrun problem in the print-
            outs.
[Fix] [All] Added more space in the water chemistry window to
            improve text display at some screen resolutions.
[New] [All] Added invert sugar and Belgian candi syrup to the
            database.

v1.0.24 2007-04-14

[Chg] [All] Space between the volume settings fields has been
            increased to make room for the larger size of these
            fields. The size of the fields has been increased to
            prevent text clipping on some systems.
[Chg] [All] Yeast cost data can be specified as mass, volume or
            each.
[New] [All] Ambient air, and source water temperatures can be
            configured by the user. This improves the
            consistency of calculations performed in the
            schedule.
[New] [All] Elevation can be configured by the user adjusting
            the boiling point used by the schedule calculations.
[Chg] [All] Size and position of the schedule graph has been
            adjusted to allow room for the new ambient air,
            source water and elevations fields.
[New] [All] Thermal expansion is factored into all schedule
            calculations. This results in the schedule list data
            displaying the actual measured volume at the
            current temperature of the liquid. For example, a
            direct heat step may report a greater volume after
            the heat is applied than the volume reported by the
            previous step.
[Fix] [All] Vessel deadspace is now handled correctly in the
            schedule calculations. Previously, deadspace was
            subtracted from the volume immediately when it
            should only be subtracted when the contents are
            transferred to a new vessel.
[Fix] [All] Text encoding is correctly assigned when reading
            session notes from saved session files. This problem
            affected special characters outside the normal

            "Original Grav (lb/gal):" in the grain, extract and
            adjunct editors.

            turning red) now warn when the boiling point as
            determined by elevation has been exceeded.
[New] [All] Labels for "Kettle Volume" and "Final Volume" now
            display the temperature at which these volumes are
            measured.
[New] [All] If an expired license key is entered in the
            registration window, a link is presented with the
            option to go online to request a new one.
[New] [All] Runoff volume lock in the separation editor adjusts
            the runoff volume to account for the volume added by
            extracts and other sugars added to the kettle after
            the mash.
[Fix] [All] Quoted-printable encoding is applied to text such as
            ingredient descriptions, style comments and other
            fields when saving files. This neatly wraps junk
            characters so they don't cause invalid XML errors
            when read back in.

v1.0.23 2007-04-02

[Fix] [All] Fixed application crash which occurred under some
            circumstances when clicking the column headings in
            the main session window.

            entries from being overwritten during database
            update routines.
[Fix] [All] Water chemistry window refreshes the ingredient list
            when undoing a delete operation.
[Imp] [Win] Font sizes in the interface have been adjusted to
            correct problems experienced with varying screen
            resolutions.
[New] [Win] Installer adds the .btp file extension to the
            Windows registry in order to automatically open
            BeerTools Pro when double-clicking on a .btp file.
[Chg] [All] Changing the display tab in the session window does
            not mark the recipe as modified, which prevents the
            save changes dialog from appearing if the only
            change made is the tab selection.
[New] [All] Master database updated to include 19 new grains, 8
            new extracts, 3 new hops and 3 special ingredients.

v1.0.22 2007-03-17

[New] [All] Added final/target temperature information to
            Mash In, Infusion, Decoction, Direct Heat, Rest and
            Transfer steps displayed in Export Text results.
[Fix] [All] Fixed erroneous results produced when adding a
            Transfer step to the schedule.
[Fix] [All] Corrected misspelled "Transferred" input field
            label on the Transfer editor.
[Chg] [Win] Session files only offer .btp as a file extension
            option instead of both .btp and .xml when saving
            session files.

            hyphens automatically as the user types the key.
[New] [All] Added final/target temperature information to
            Mash In, Infusion, Decoction, Direct Heat, Rest and
            Transfer steps displayed on print-outs.
[Fix] [All] Menus added to ingredient and style browsers, and
            browsers can be closed with the File->Close menu
            command like session windows.
[Fix] [All] Notes are saved as 'quoted-printable' to reduce the
            possibility of junk characters entered in the notes
            field causing invalid XML file errors when opening

[Fix] [Win] Fixed NilObjectException error that occurred when
            selecting the separator in the algorithm menu in the

            specific window size situations causing new windows
            to open above the top menu bar.

            yeast to hops in the ingredient browser. This fix
            also corrected a problem sorting hops when using
            the column headings.
[Chg] [All] Preserve standard menus when the 'Calculators'
            window is the active window. Previously, all menus

            schedule when using vessels with dead-space
            settings. Most noticeably seen in the 'Separation'

Are you referring to the installer or the application executable file?

.EFW file extension

Postby Legman » Thu Aug 07, 2008 6:34 am

The file that I downloaded. BTP_setup.1.2D0D17
I tried to open the file, but nothing happened. Nothing opened or started up.[/quote]

Got it! Finally.
The problem was that the file kept downloading with the file extension .EFW
I couldn't do anything with that. So after digging around on the net, I finally found a solution and got it to work.

Anyone having this same problem read link below.

Hmm, good to know. I'm glad that you figured out that it is the firewall software's fault because that one would have had me really puzzled. :?
