  20. Short Cut Bug Fix - The CR9000 pre-compiler was left out of the 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 releases. The result was an error message (pre-compiler not found) when trying to "Finish" a CR9000X program. The CR9000X program was being saved. It just wasn’t error checked.
  21. Short Cut Bug Fix - In 2.6.0 when attempting to add 4-wire 107 Temperature Probes to an AM16/32, only zero was available for repetitions thus a user could never accomplish this configuration. Not an issue in 2.5.4 and fixed in 2.6.1

  87. PakBus Graph Bug Fix - Fixed problem where the PB Graph went blank and did not refresh after second datalogger is deleted.
  88. LogTool Enhancement - Added ability to zip log files.
  89. LogTool Enhancement - Added ability to delete all log files.
  90. Server Enhancement - Implemented the LgrNet zip logs transaction that was added to version of the cora server interface.
  91. Server Bug Fix - Fixed an issue with creating data files larger than 2 gigabytes.
  92. Server Bug Fix - When program table defs changed, the backup file is created by a "rename" rather than a "copy".
  93. Server Bug Fix - In the RF95T base the low level poll setting values were not read from the server configuration file when the server was started. The result was that the low level poll interval was always reset to its default value.
  94. Server Bug Fix - The time-out for the BMP1 data advise operation was being set to a value that was far too long by orders of magnitude.
  95. Server Bug Fix - If a BMP1 station received a data collect response after collection was aborted, the server could crash.
  96. Server Bug Fix - Added code to evaluate the an RF95T base's network description on successful completion so that, if the network was changed while the description was being sent, a new operation will be posted.
  97. Server Bug Fix - Added code to the classic datalogger synchronization sequence so that, if the datalogger is on an RF95 link, two carriage returns will be transmitted back-to-back rather than just one followed by retries spaced by the link response time.
  98. Server Bug Fix - Added code to prevent the file control operation from getting table definitions from the logger when the program is stopped in order to send an operating system via BMP5.
  99. Server Bug Fix - Fixed a bug involving RF95 links with repeaters where, if a lot of the dataloggers in the RF network had requests pending at the same time and the server was unable to communicate with the RF base, only a portion of the pending requests would fail as a result of the failure on the base.
  100. Server Bug Fix - Added time for file send and file control transactions so that the datalogger has time to finish rebooting before PC400 tries to communicate.
  101. Server Bug Fix - Fixed a bug in the LgrNet List Comm Ports transaction where, on certain host computer configurations, the underlying call to EnumPorts() could fail and lead the server to attempt to allocate too much memory.
  102. Server Bug Fix - Added code that will prevent the cache manager thread from "bailing" its command queue while the LgrNet create backup file transaction is active.
  103. Server Bug Fix - When a data file reaches 2 gigabytes it appears that a seek fails and the new data is written to the start of the file.
  104. Server Bug Fix - TAPI connect results in blue screen w/some modems. (Note that problem is not completely fixed.)
  105. Server Bug Fix - Fixed an issue which created a "stuttering" effect that can occur on a link with a lot of latency where the responses from previous communication attempts get processed before the expected response is received.
  106. Server Bug Fix - Added code to removed an "orphaned" active brokers when the server is restored from an XML structure (the new server config file).
  107. Server Bug Fix - Fixed a bug associated with serial port support (likely TAPI as well) that could lead to a lock-up in the overlapped I/O version of execute() if ReadFile() returned ERROR_IO_PENDING. The old code attempted to get the overlapped result if the return code was not equal to ERROR_IO_PENDING. It should have been doing this if the last error equal to ERROR_IO_PENDING. With some drivers (FTDI), this would lead to the call to GetOverlappedResult() not returning which could eventually lead to a server lock up if the main thread was waiting for the serial port thread to end.
  108. Server Bug Fix - Fixed a bug on in the code that processes table definitions from BMP3 loggers (CR5000 and CR9000) where the program_running flag was not set appropriately when a table other than the status table was encountered. As a result, in a merge update, "old" tables were not deleted because the program_running flag was not set.
  109. Server Bug Fix - Fixed a bug in the code that processes table definitions from a BMP3 logger where the program information setting would not get set to indicate that there was no program running when table definitions were refreshed without the reset option. This could lead pc400 and pc200 to attempt to keep polling the datalogger.
  110. Server Bug Fix - Added code to recognize when a BMP5 datalogger program has been paused as opposed to being stopped (the datalogger will return a value of 3 rather than 1 or 2). When the logger is in this state and table definitions are refreshed, any old collect areas that are no longer present will now be erased.
  111. PC400 Install Enhancement - Default "Campbell Scientific" directory in the Windows Start Menu.
  112. PC400 Install Enhancement - Shortcut to the PC400 Manual in the Windows Start Menu "Campbell ScientificPC400PC400 Manual".
