Version 16.10.0 8. October 2016
This Version is currently EXPERIMENTAL
There has been many (smaller+larger) modification everywhere in the
application to implement the new time zone feature.
Testing was done to import tours with different file formats which
needed some adjustments but there can still be unsolved problems which
were not yet detected by these tests.
Already saved tours from previous versions should not be a problem
(because the tour start time is never modified) but newly imported tours
should be observed if the tour start time is displayed correctly.
I'm not shure if all time zone descriptions on this site and the app are
understandable or are more confusing.
* Time zone
With this version, a tour start time is now always associated with a
specific time zone, previously only the system time zone was used to
display the tour time.
This caused the problem that a local time in Boston at 8 a.m. was
displayed at 14:00 o'clock in middle Europe and not at 8:00.
A tour start time is now displayed always with the local time, no
math is needed any more to get it correctly.
More info about the usage of time zones is described in the
* Time Zone Tools
- Set/remove a time zone in a tour with the tour editor
- Set/remove a time zone for multiple tours in the tour book view
- Select default time zone in the preferences
These tools will NEVER change the tour start time, only the tour
* General preference page
- Splitted page layout into tabs
