Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.27 of the Model Railroad System. This package includes a collection of libraries and programs designed to help the modeler with many of the more tedius 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:
Fixed an error in the CMR/I code generated by Dispatcher. (Missing argument error).
Added a Wrap As menu item to Dispatcher. This allows the Dispatcher to create StarPack versions of the CTC Panel programs it generates. These StarPack versions are self-contained, standalone native executable programs that can be run on the target system without having to install any additional code.
Fixed a build error relating to the API documentation for the Tcl package libraries.
Updated the section 1 man pages and created a master man page for section 1.
