2.17. Version 0.4.3

Release date: 2003-03-03

Thanks to the great help of Rüdiger Seidel a new version 0.4.3 could be published. The permanent work on my new home lasts longer than planned, so this offer came just to the right time.

Changes in detail:

2.18. Version 0.4.2

Release date: 2002-05-26

Some users send me reports about a non-working Maerklin digital turntable. So I created this new version with 2 bugs less in it:


Please open the layout file *.dat.gbs, where an element for a turntable is integrated. Then search for the turntable element (with the editor built-in search command you search for "drehscheibe"). Please change the number of "address_2" to 225 (if you use the standard Maerklin turntable) or 209 (if you use a [secondary] specially ordered turntable with another address range. Save file and open it normally under spdrs60.

What's happening else:

Work for a new version 0.5.0 is on the run, but slowly. The reason is simple: Building of our new home has just begun.

2.19. Version 0.4.1

Release date: 2002-02-21

I had a lot of feedbacks concerning instabilities of the 0.4.0 version. I could not understand how that came 'cause I could not discover such problems. Fortunately Jörg Stolzenberg was able to locate the bug. This one is fixed in the new version. Just download it.


Alle users who created layouts with the 0.4.0 version and run into problems while loading those layouts (segmentation faults) must enter the layouts ANEW! I only changed the code to prevent FUTURE problems. Due to too much work I was not able to provide code that old layout can be translated into correct versions. I hope you'll understand that.


Open your layout file with a normal editor. Then change the following entries for all elements containing LEDs in the track segment as follows:

change "hide LEDs" to 0 and "feedback port" to 0. Then it should work.

What's happening:

Work for a new version 0.5.0 have begun recently. First I'll develop the basic program functionality, afterwards the layout controling functions are inserted.

25.01.2002, What's up:

Due to forced planning of building our new home I'm unfortunately not able to answer any question without several days of delay. Work on a new version has not yet begun.

28.11.2001, DDL-Meeting in Ruedesheim:

The meeting was a full success. A number of client and server programmers have been in Ruedesheim to discuss the features and benefits of a SRCP controlling system. Everything worked: linux client with windows server and vice versa. Those who want to see some pictures follow this link.

There are some consequences to spdrs60:

This means: version 0.4.0 will not be continued in the future on the existing codebase. There will be a completly new developed code with help of an integrated development environment (IDE). The author will then switch to the new Qt-libraries 2.3.x. He will also use kdevelop so all the make- and configfiles will be available to all. From beginning on there will be a strong focus on internationalization.

With the provided version 0.4.0 you will be able to work a couple of months into future. Please be sure that you only use SRCP 0.7.x servers. The author is building a house from beginning of 2002, this means that there won't be a release of the new version until summer 2002. A book is also under writing to provide more information about a complete SRCP environment. This book will be for sale in autumn 2002.

25.11.2001, Big news:

A lot of changes have been done on these websides: use the links to "Contact" or "Download" to get hold of a questionnaire which will help the author to improve the program and/or to build in whishes from endusers. Those who have not filled out one yet please download, fill out and send back.

Those websides are from now on also available in German, a Norwegian version is in preparation.

Short report about the 1st DDL meeting this weekend in Ruedesheim concerning spdrs60 for Linux is in preparation and will be published within the next week.
