Digital and Automated lighting pioneer High End Systems, a Barco company, is pleased to announce the release of version 3.2.0 software for the Wholehog operating system. This software provides many enhancements and improvements to the popular platform, which includes the Wholehog 3, Road Hog Full Boar, Road Hog and Hog iPC consoles as well as Hog 3PC software.
The eagerly awaited v3.2.0 software's main highlights include Network Tracking and Failover, Color Coding, Keystroke Macros and more. The new features - requested by programmers - have passed extensive industry testing for stability and reliability.
“We are pleased to release v3.2.0 with a multitude of new features,” stated Robbie Bruce, High End Systems Director of Software Development. “This version not only adds features, but also strengthens our core system and allows us to develop at a faster pace. We included many under-the-hood enhancements that will aid in future software development.”
Additional features included in v3.2.0 include USB saving for Wholehog 3 consoles, selective show merging, fixture schedule search, direct value entries and improved GUI throughout. With such a large number of enhancements, High End Systems again called on their loyal beta testers to ensure the software met the needs of the customers.
“Version 3.2.0 represents another huge leap forward in the software's lifecycle. There is almost too much to digest here all at once. I'm sure many users will share my appreciation for many of the enhancements,” said Ross Williams, renowned UK lighting programmer and designer. Williams has been an active beta tester through many versions of Wholehog software.
Version 3.2.0 also marks the first software version that is no longer compatible with the discontinued DP2000. Users are advised to take advantage of a trade in offer towards the purchase of a DP8000, which is available through July 31, 2011.
Version 3.2.0 software, release notes, and an updated manual are now available free of charge at www.flyingpig.com.
