Default PSUD 2.10 released

Hi,

A "Windows 10 friendly" PSUD 2.10 has been released today, the only significant change is the placement of the rectifiers.txt file. This has traditionally been installed in the Program Files area, however Windows 10 will raise a permissions error if you try and amend anything in those locations making edits impossible. Download link is Download

The file now sits in (typically!) C:\Users\my-login-name\AppData\Roaming\psud2\rectifiers.txt so it's possible to make edits as you wish.

Other changes incorporated were the changes in Beta builds 57-61 which were not on public release:
  • Fixed memory leak
  • New installer package, now asks if you want to overwrite rectifiers.txt
  • Options | Auto table width added
  • Tidied up HTML help screens
  • Chart toolbar removed, didn't work well with new system and you can carry out the operations with the mouse anywayHelp pages updated to include a menu
  • Edit rectifier properties now has link to "how to" for adding rectifiers
  • Formatting issues with dialog boxes now fixed
  • Chart handling much improved, mouse middle wheel etc.
  • Legend box broken out to a different area
  • Help file now contains latest changes (selectable from menu)
  • Fixed problem with I(T1) on FW rectifier (only showing half cycle)
Other news #1: Work continues on PSUD3 but it's a ground up rewrite as the technology in PSUD2 is broken as designed. As a result, it's taking more time than I would have liked. On a positive note, all simulations are working and giving very accurate results so it's the user interface that now needs to be sorted out. More work will get done during the Christmas break and hopefully this will take it to a Beta early in the new year.

Other news #2: I'm also looking at the long overdue task of separating the rectifiers.txt file out into individual .rect files in XML format to make sharing and editing easier. This would be used with an analysis add-on to make it easier to add your own rectifiers. There's a possibility this would come out as a PSUD 2.11 as well as being in the new PSUD3.

That's it for now, please put any questions/feedback as a reply to the post, thanks!

Regards,
Duncan

Thank you! Works fine in the first few pokes. Slightly cleaner looking (on Win7) than the last release. PSUD is very much appreciated.

Duncan:

At the risk of seeming ungrateful (I'm not!), is there any chance you might release a version of PSUD for the Mac? I migrated and the loss of PSUD is one of the biggest detriments to that move.

Respectfully,
Scott

That would be really nice, but he's probably got his hands full enough.
