Feb 10, 2016 - Gonna be a helluva ride

You may have already caught inklings of us reengineering a stronger, faster, PingPlotter. We're calling the project Xerek, but you might know it better as PingPlotter iOS or Mac Preview. If you've experienced the awesome of those tools, surprise! You've already touched Xerek's primordial ooze. There's a lot more on the way too. Here a few things we're working on for the first Windows Xerek release.

  • Handling samples and auto-saving in a way that basically let's you trace forever
  • Effortless experiences for alert management and summary screens
  • A Windows service that works the way you (and we) always thought it should
  • And of course, so much more!

It's gonna be a helluva ride. We can't wait to unleash PingPlotter 5 on the world. In the meantime, check out the latest Mac Preview. Date sensitivity and a couple other bugs are fixed. Overall, we're pretty happy with how PingPlotter OS X is working. We've heard positive feedback and are using it regularly around the office. The only reason we're calling it a preview is because it's not as feature rich as its Windows predecessor, but that's all going to change soon.
