New in version 3.8.4 (January 13th, 2012)

  • New Device/Interface/Sensor Support:
  • Improved WDSS Bluetooth Support – newer Broadcom (Widcomm) Bluetooth radios support.
  • Supports new anemometer sensor
  • Supports new Melt Station
  • Supports new 30V sensor
  • New Features:
  • Data Markers enable annotations of data events during a time-based data collection. The Data Markers are associated with the actual data cell(s) taken at the user selected time during the collection. Such markers might for instance be associated with a change of phase during a melting session with the new Melt Station or any other sensor where you may wish to note an event during the collection. Hit the key during a data collection places a data marker and displays an associated helper box for further use. Double-clicking the associated helper box allows you to enter text associated with that mark.
  • Data Tagging enables annotations of specific cells or ranges of cells after a collection or for collections utilizing non-time-based modes. Similar to Data Markers, Data Tagging can associate additional information with specific data elements.
  • Note that Data Markers and Tags are distinct from text annotations in that the marker or tag is associated with a distinct cell in the data table and not just a location on a graph as is the case for text annotations. Use Data Markers as part of a time-based collection during the collection. Use Data Tagging after a collection. Data Tagging can be modified repeatedly as needed and re-associated with different data cells. Data Markers are restricted to the original data cell or cells with which they are first associated during a collection and may not be re-associated with other cells.
  • More video analysis options are available. Video frames may be skipped while adding points. The first point marked may set time zero. Center of mass studies can be done with video analysis.
  • Other Changes:
  • The Logger Pro Windows installer has been rewritten to better support international or second language installations, enable better Windows support of Broadcom based Bluetooth radios, enable better installer behavior when the same or newer version of QuickTime is already installed, rectify some driver issues that plague some XP installations, and provide MSI based “silent installation” for improved remote/network managed deployment usage.
  • Czech, Dutch, and Polish were added as supported languages.

New in version 3.8.3 (September 18th, 2010)

  • New Device/Interface/Sensor Support:
  • Latest VGPS devices (MTK) Support
  • Ocean Optics Spectrometers supported on Windows 7 and Vista 64-bit operating systems.
  • Drop Counter Automatic Configuration Feature Added
  • Other Changes:
  • For the first time both English and international versions of Logger Pro 3 are concurrently released. English users in most cases will not notice any difference. However, if an English user wishes to enable one or more available
  • alternate languages such as Spanish or French along with English it is relatively simple to do so by creating additional desktop shortcuts that specify a “/Lang” parameter to the Logger Pro 3 executable. For example, Spanish Logger Pro 3 on an English system may be enabled via a copy of the regular desktop shortcut and adding “ /Lang=es” to the Target line in the shortcut. – contact Vernier for more information.
  • Current international users will enjoy more timely and seamless support of their native language on their choice of Windows operating systems (International Logger Pro 3 is not supported on Mac OS X) International users wishing to also access the English version (or other installed languages) of Logger Pro 3 on their native systems may do so by creating an additional shortcut(s) as above (e.g. “/Lang=en” for English). Logger Pro 3.8.3 replaces all prior versions of Logger Pro International.
