  • Updated the quantity display name from 'Heat Flux' to 'Net Heat Flux'.
  • Fixed a bug parsing HEAT_OF_COMBUSTION for REAC records.
  • Fixed a bug where parsing some &REAC records would be dropped without warning.
  • Added a warning when parsing RAMP_T for unsupported SURF records.
  • Fixed a bug where parsing the DNS variable from FDS versions prior to 6.7.0 failed.

Changes to Results:

  • Added the ability to draw linear dimensions.
  • Added the ability to draw custom labels.
  • Added the ability to show/hide floors.
  • Added support for the HTC Vive, Vive Pro, and many other OpenVR/SteamVR headsets when in VR mode.
  • Added the ability to color occupants by profile or behavior for new simulations when occupants are not viewed as people.
  • Added the ability to dynamically color occupants by their speed, time to exit, or view direction.
  • Added the ability to rename items using the context menu.
  • Added the ability to show floors containing the current selection.
  • Fixed a bug where views and tours made in the Results would not save/restore correctly in non-English versions if the results are closed and reopened.
  • Fixed a bug in some international versions where FDS results might fail to load if a SMOKEVIEW_ID is specified for a particle.
  • Fixed a bug where the last part of an occupant's path might not draw correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where importing _session.json file could cause a crash.
  • Fixed a bug where the color bar might not update properly for particle quantities.
  • Fixed a bug where objects might pop in and out of view when floors are laid out horizontally.
