The latest version of my favourite Railway CAD program has been released.  SCARM is used extensively at the club for the design of the club layouts.

The new version is a bug fix for the version which was released at the begining of the month.

Read on for the release notes on the new version (0.9.36) and the previous version (0.9.35).

SCARM v. 0.9.36 Released

This is a bug-fix update of previous v. 0.9.35. Please patch the old version with this new release of SCARM. The already installed extensions are not affected by this error and does not require updating or reinstalling.

Warning

Tip
If “Check for Updates” feature in older releases reports that there is no newer version of SCARM, download the installer directly from the website. The old release info file may be cached on your PC and it may need some time to expire. If the website also shows older version, press F5 key to refresh it.

This update fixes a major bug that may prevent starting of SCARM on systems, that was not restarted after (re)installing of v. 0.9.35.

I am really sorry if this bug caused you troubles in your work with SCARM. I cannot guarantee that something like this will not happen again, but I can promise that my reaction to the potential issues will be as fast as possible. Always report about unusual error messages and suspected bugs here in the blog or by SCARM e-mail and I will check the problem after which will make the necessary fixes and changes in the program code.
