A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes:

+ New Features: A new program titled "Contour Animation" has been added to the Utilities | Map menu.This program creates contour map animations based on data that changes over time (e.g. groundwater potentiometric surface elevations). These animations may be saved as animated GIF, AVI, Google Earth Timespans, individual images, or PicShow slide shows.
+ New Feature: The Data Dictionary has been moved inside of the database for SQL Server projects. This new feature allows the RockWorks database to be located within the Microsoft Azure cloud! (Advanced level only)
+ New Features: Options have been added to the following programs that allow the changes to be made to the current borehole, all enabled boreholes, and all boreholes: P-Data | Analyze | Resample, Logarithmic, Gamma-to-Grade, GT (Grade x Thickness) Compositing, Add Random, Resample; I-Data | Analyze | GT (Grade x Thickness) Compositing; Colors | Analyze | Comments to Color, Raster Imagery to Color
+ Improvements to the AGS (Version 3.1) Importer for files which are not fully compliant to the standard.
+ Improvements to the Section, Profile, Projected Section, and Fence Selection Maps - less flicker when Snap is requested.
+ Improvements to the interface for selecting the ion columns for Durov, Ion Balance, Piper Diagram, Stiff Diagram, Stiff Map, and Total Dissolved Solids programs
+ Huge improvements to the Pie Chart Map, Bar Chart Map, Spider Map, Starburst Map programs - easier setup of data columns, increased number of components, auto-offset for readability, improved labeling, redesigned Symbol Key, more diagram options, more flexible scaling options
+ Improvements to Stiff Map program - auto-offset
+ Improvement to the Utilities | Import | External Database (previously "ADO"), the program uses a FireDAC (quasi-universal database interface) connection dialog to connect to a database. FireDAC uses ODBC and not ADO/OLEDB drivers.
+ Improvement: The initial browse for a project folder allows the creation of a new folder. This occurs when launching RW17 without an installed Samples folder if the Preferences | General Program Settings | On Startup | Prompt For Folder option has been enabled.
+ Bug Fix: The Striplogs | Fill-In Missing Stratigraphy utility no longer sporadically rounds the depths to integers.
+ Bug Fix: The I-Data Length Composite Weighting (LCS) no longer sporadically rounds the depths to integers.
+ Bug Fix: Picking a polygon fill from the Lithology or Stratigraphy types within RockPlot2D no longer requires an Advanced License.
+ Bug Fix: Enabling the Volumetrics within Stratigraphic Modeling no longer causes an Access Violation during the model processing.
+ Bug Fix: Cutouts are now properly pasted to surfaces within RockPlot3D.
+ Bug Fix: The Clear button in the Profile Selection dialog now clears the previous profile from the display.
+ Bug Fix: Database errors that occur when changing between projects that use different database engines no longer occur.
+ Bug Fix: The Help Browser within the main Preferences dialog is no longer disabled if the Help-From-Folder option is disabled.
