Alignments

Changes in clothoid calculations.
Traditionally SBG have used an approximation for calculating coordinates on a Clothoid. The approximation has been known to have a limited range of validity. However, the approximation has been well established in road/rail construction engineering so until now there have been little reason for changing it. Recently, it have been demonstrated that there are applications where the range of validity is exceeded, resulting in incorrect results. Therefore the calculation routines have been changed. The change only affects clothoids with a curvature that are close to (or longer) than a quarter of a circle, or such ones that are far away from the segment of infinite radius.
As long as data is imported and used in applications where this change is present there is no problem. But if you send imported or edited data to other applications there might be a problem. Versions of Geo, GeoPad and GeoROG/UMC3D that are not adjusted for this will not calculate coordinates correctly. For this reason, always run a line check in the application where the line will be used, even if you don't intend to modify it.

The line check in Geo has been extended to show an information message if the line consists of clothoids that can cause these kinds of problems in older versions of Geo, GeoPad and GeoROG/UMC3D. .

Projects

A new project view consisting of three tabs:
1. Dynamic project tree. Automatically displays all files in the current project directory and its sub-directories. Geo monitors changes in these directories which makes it easy to see whether files are being added or removed. The files are ordered by file type which makes it easier to open them without having to use the "Open file" dialog. Double-clicking a file opens it, while right-clicking allows you to perform other operations such as creating new files, renaming them, send by e-mail, archive, etc.
2. Project Shortcuts. Allows you to manually add shortcuts to files you want to access easily, even files not part of the current project you're viewing. This can be useful if you have a set of files you use for multiple projects.
3. Project Settings. A single view where you can manage all project-specific settings. It makes it easier to get a quick overview and make changes to the current project's settings.
