Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.22 of the Model Railroad System. This package includes a collection of libraries and programs designed to help the modeler with many of the more tedious aspects of his or her hobby. Included are libraries for communication with Chubb and Lenz XPressNet networks, a user-mode driver for the Rail Driver control console, a library to parse XTrkCAD layout files, as well as utilities for computing dropping resistors, camera view areas, creating railroad time tables, and a switch-list based freight car forwarder system. There are several updates in this release:
- Added in support for XTrkCad Block and Switchmotor meta
Updated the parser (both plain and Boost versions) and TrackGraph class to provide support for the (experimental) Block and Switchmotor meta objects available as a compile time option with XTrkCad. Support has also been added to the Dispatcher programs to use the Block and Switchmotor meta objects in creating dispatcher panels.
- Moved the support code for the TimeTable program into a namespace.
- Made some small changes to the MS-Windows socketpair code.
