This release brings significant stability improvements, several bug fixes and one new conversion.
|capability||Nm --> ft-lb and in-lb||44 Nm||Thanks to Dave for suggesting this.|
|bug fix||10 cm = 0'3-30/32||10 cm||Thanks to chc for reporting a problem with fractional representation of Imperial values.|
|capability||regression testing||test page||This is something I've been planning to do for a long time, and never got around to doing it. The page linked to in the previous column is automatically recognized as a regression test page by the code, and it basically tests itself against that set of predefined situations. That should help me avoid a lot of bugs in the future.|
|capability||smarter unit matching||n/a||The algorithm which picks out measurements to be tested from the context or the page has been improved; this should avoid all sorts of potential problems in more awkward situations.|
|minor improvement||not converting HTML comments||n/a||Previous versions of the code were parsing through HTML comments as well; that behaviour has been suppressed for a marginal improvement in processing speed.|
|improvement||fixed contextual conversion for miles per gallon||10 mpg||Converting the value in this example in contextual mode (in the popup menu) used to result in an ugly line with some "undefined" values. That has been fixed.|
|minor bug fix||infrequent format fixed||disabling "Converter 0.6.2" stops FF from freezing||That's part of robaal's report of the problem which has been fixed in version 0.6.3. Converting that example in versions previous to 0.7.0 used to result in "062 inches" being converted. The new engine recognizes that's not a number, and doesn't convert it.|
