SpliceGUI Release 1.1.0 - Release Notes 3/23/2011

New / Updated Features

  1. SpliceGUI now supports trays. Trays will be handled through a tray window that is accessible in the lower right portion of the software. There you can add/delete/rename trays. You can also move splices that aren’t part of a try into a tray. Read the update to the user manual for more information on how to use trays in the SpliceGUI!
  2. SpliceGUI now supports additional splice types. In the previous iteration of the software all splice types were fusion, no splice or mechanical. This version allows you to use any splice type you want and you can modify the color and icon that will appear in each fiber that is spliced with that particular splice type. Read the update to the user manual for more information on how to use splice types in the SpliceGUI!
  3. Updated the Splice Spreadsheet to include tray information. 
  4. Added some prompts for when users delete splices or remove splice tray information from splices. This should help minimize making inadvertent splicing modifications.
  5. The splice point list is now queried against the database each time it is selected. This means that new splice points added to the network since the SpliceGUI loaded will appear in the list.
  6. The patch includes an updated help file as well as a pdf listing all the available keyboard/mouse shortcuts. This pdf can be found in the SpliceGUI install directory or you can launch it from the bottom of the options menu.

Known Issues

  1. Occasionally when trying to do a single splice you will actually do a full buffer splice. This is because the fiber and the buffer are separate but closely related objects. When this happens the fiber has been dropped past the other object and onto the buffer section,
  2. If you are connected to an Oracle network and lose connection you will receive an error message. We will address this in the future by providing a reconnect prompt.
