directly into WRB files.  The MIKE11 ASCII files (*.res11_txt) are created
automatically as needed.
– [SOBEK]  Sobek version information is now saved in the user’s application data
INI file.
– [MIKE11]  Fixed a bug in the creation of WRB that causes the water level of the
left point of the first cross-section to be overwritten by water levels of
cross-sections of deleted branches.
– [HECRAS]  Fixed a bug where if there is a ‘*’ in the station value of a cross-section
of a SDF file, the cross-section would not be read correctly.
– [WR1D]  Need to hold down the Alt key to cycle through points that are close
to each other.

v2.60
– [Imglayer]  Changed to give the warning message about ECW or MrSID DLL’s not
found only once.
– [Imglayer]  ECW and MrSID DLL files can now be located in a common folder
instead of the local directory of the application.

initialised correctly if the Open Existing project option was selected and
then the user selected Cancel in the open file dialog.  This resulted in a
range check error when adding a layer afterwards.

or restore tool is selected.

of extra TIN triangles if the network contains extra TIN triangles belonging
to deleted cross-sections.

now no longer expects the river name if there is only a single river.

v2.51
– [HECRAS]  Now supports the importing of HEC-RAS ASCII GIS export (*.sdf)
files.

to find a new node using the coordinates.

of trying to find a triangle at the mouse cursor.

disabled.

one could be selected.
– [WR1D]  Added tool buttons for deleting and restoring objects.
– [WR1D]  Removed the enter and delete keys for deleting and restoring objects.
– [WR1D]  When exporting network to GIS, if the projection of layer is not set,
a dialog box will prompt the user to select the projection to use.  This avoid
the non-earth projection problem when the GIS files are imported in MapInfo.
– [WR1D]  Now write out the real extent for the exported GIS network.
– [WR1D]  Sped up the reading of the MIKE11 time-step by not processing
unnecessary data.
– [WR1D]  Now only draws the outline of the cross-section TIN instead of all
the triangles to save the re-TINning and redrawing time.  It was a problem
for large networks which were taking several seconds each time to re-TIN
and to redraw.
– [HECRAS]  Fixed the problem where the ‘*’ in the river station values of some
result files was crashing the conversion process.

v2.50

– [wR1D]  Fixed bug for factor coords where the new coordinates were not
written to the wr1d file.
– [wR1D]  Fixed the bug where when the extent of a cross-section is resetted in
memory, the first and the last cross-section points were used instead of the
left and right extent points.
– [wR1D]  Fixed bug when processing MIKE11 files, the output WRB files were
written in the same directory as the input ASCII file instead of the specified
output directory.
– [wR1D]  When processing a single MIKE11 results file, the file name of the
input MIKE11 ASCII file is suggested as the file name of the output WRB file.
– [wR1D]  Now the wR1D layer takes into account the left and right cross-section
points as well as the branch points when determining the layer extent.
– Added the mouse wheel adjusting zoom factor feature.  Zoom factor is displayed
on the status bar.
– [wR1D]  Fixed the problem with the extra TIN triangles not removed correctly
when the branch of a TIN triangle point is inactive.
– Coordinates are now displayed even where the project is not saved.
– Coordinates are displayed for mouse position when zooming and panning tools
are active.
