Marked Birds Database – Version 2.13.0 available

I’m happy to announce the release of the Marked Birds Database version 2.13.0. It contains various improvements and some fixes.

For a full list, see the bottom of this article.

A link to the download file as well as instructions about installing, setting up and using the database can be found on the Marked Birds Database page.

Users who are using a previous version can import their data into the new version.

Summary

  1. Improved: Bird relations now track the age of a bird at the time of the relation, not its current age.
  2. Improved: ‘First of season’ is now also shown in ‘View all observations’ and Search Extra > Observations.
  3. Fixed: Various issues that were not working properly.
  4. Fixed: Minor changes to colours and text.

Improvements

The following changes have been made:

  • Bird relations: when creating a relation between 2 birds, the age at the time of the relation is now stored. Previously, the current age was shown for all years in which a relation existed.
  • Observations: The ‘View all observations’ and ‘Search Extra > Observations’ overview now also includes ‘1st of season’.
  • Observations: The ‘View all observations’ and ‘Search Extra > Observations’ overview now also includes ‘1st of season’.
  • Green can now be used as an inscription colour for Markers (mainly used in gull projects).

Fixes

The following features that were not working properly have been fixed:

  • When adding a bird with medium Markers, the code on a metal tibia ring is not shown vertically anymore.
  • When adding a bird with uncoded Markers and selecting ‘Add another bird’, the OK button in the confirmation message now correctly navigates back to the form instead of to Bird Overview.
  • When adding a bird with uncoded Markers and selecting ‘Capture -ringing’, the created observation now includes the correct age of the bird.
  • When exporting to Excel, no confirmation to create the report is now asked when less than 20 records exist.
  • The misspelled text ‘unkown’ in the text for generating an e-mail has been corrected.
