What's New

This is a maintenance release of Pathfinder.

This version includes fixes for issues that could cause occupants to become stuck and PyroSim import support.

This version of Pathfinder uses version 1.6.0_45 of the Java VM.

Changes since Pathfinder 2014.1.0207:

  • Fixed a bug that prevented importing PyroSim and FDS files.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occupants to overcrowd isles/hallways when entering from adjoining rooms.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occupants to sometimes become stuck at one-way doors.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occupants to sometimes become stuck at corners.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed occupants to cross one-way doors in the wrong direction when the door has flow rate limits enabled.
  • Fixed a bug in the conflict resolution system that caused occupants behind a stuck occupant to pack in behind the stuck occupant.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occupants to sometimes float off the mesh when trying to traverse vertical geometry, such as one-step stairs or stairs that had been converted to rooms.
  • Fixed a bug that caused occupants to sometimes walk through vertical geometry rather than walk up/down and subsequently become stuck.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause two side-by-side occupants going the same direction to become stuck.
  • Improved performance in some models with many doors and rooms.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an erroneous warning to appear on doors indicating that the door was not connected to the correct number of rooms.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes made it difficult or impossible to draw a vertical stair between two rooms.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes made it difficult to connect two rooms with a door.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a door connecting two rooms to become an exit when a connecting room was altered.
  • Changed an occupant density label from "Assembly (Standing)" to "Waiting Spaces."
