Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.42 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:
Move use a common configuration logic for OpenLCB_ daemon nodes using an internal XML tree and implementing something like a CDI.
Add OpenLCB_CMRI daemon.
Add Pango/Cairo PDF printer for FCFSupport.
Improve printing in FCFSupport to better support letter paper, by using Bold instead of double width printing, since wide carriage printers are get few and far between.
Assorted minor bug fixes.
