What’s Actually in 4.0…

Here’s the official list of major new features in RCLogbook 4.0 include:

  • Add barcode scanner to scan models and batteries for events and cycles.
  • Add support for “storage” state in batteries.
  • Added “no timer” setting to skip the timer when logging at the field.
  • Now warn user when they try to start an event with a discharged battery.
  • Now record internal resistances to tenths of milliohms.
  • Now display event counts and last event date on event location callouts.
  • The usual cast of bug fixes and stability improvements.

The barcode functionality requires an iOS device with a rear-facing camera capable of 720P video capture – this pretty much means an iPhone 4, 4S, or 5 or a 4th generation or later iPod touch.

There have been a lot of changes under the hood to move to modern iOS 4.x APIs and other clean-up. Those changes turned out to be a lot more work than anticipated.
