Ping Plotter 2.40 released.

Ping Plotter 2.40 released.

A new version of Ping Plotter has left beta testing and is now available to everyone. We'd like to thank all of our great beta testers for their comments, feedback, and suggestions.

Here is a really short list of some of the new things in this release. See the revision history for a more complete list.

Version 2.40 has these following new features and bug fixes (since 2.30.1):
  • Complete re-write of internal engines. Allows some capabilities in this version and lots of cool stuff in the future. Big performance and reliability benefits in the 2.40 release.
  • Major re-write of alert system. Can now notify when a condition starts, when it ends, or as it is happening. Added the ability to launch an EXE when a condition occurs, and can also change the tray icon or show a message in the tray.
  • Annotations can be tied to a point in the time graph to show notes. These get saved in all images.
  • Save files format was changed and now takes up only 5-15% of what it used to (much of this is due to new internal compression).
  • Can now "Copy as summary text" - shows packet loss % / min/max, etc instead of only showing all the raw data.
  • Can do some annotation of an IP address in the history window so you can recognize what an IP was for (ie: enter an address of "10.0.0.1 My_Router" will auto-resolve 10.0.0.1 to "My_Router" even if not in a hosts table).
  • Double-clicking on a hop number now shows/hides the time graph for that hop.
  • Lots more ... See the the revision history for more details, or go download it now.
The online documentation hasn't all been updated yet - we'll be working to get this done over the next few days. If you have questions or problems, please post them over at the support forums.
