Deepwoods Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.1.9
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 key changes in
this release:

* Fixed a nasty bug in the Time Table C++ support code.

It was a problem with the print option hash table, which
prevented any sort of customization of the printed time tables.

* Fixed a minor bug in the Time Table Tcl code.

A minor problem with error handling when sub-processes die
with problems.

In addition to the source code archive, there is also available for download
a Linux binary archive and MS-Windows binary archive. Both sets of
binaries were built under CentOS 4.5. The Linux binaries are
distribution neutral, due to the use of StarPack technology.
