These release notes are also available as a printable PDF document or as a self-running e-book (click links to download).

Notes on "patch" versions 1.3.1 through 1.3.4:

A few small bugs have been found by our customers since 1.3 was released. Rather than wait for the next major release, we release new "patch" versions to correct the problems as soon as they are found. This ensures that the software you use is as bug-free as humanly possible.

Version 1.3.1 contains a patch to correct an error when loading the database the first time (from a previous version), if the database contains bad references. If you used v1.3 and your database loaded successfully, then this patch does not affect you.

Version 1.3.2 contains a patch to correct an error when printing multiple receipts with the "Always Preview" option enabled, in Windows Me, 98, and 95. If you use Windows NT, 2000 or XP, then this patch does not affect you. If you use Windows Me, 98 or 95 then you should update to this version.

Version 1.3.3 contains a patch to correct an error which can result in the message "Customer record is already open in another dialog..." to be displayed when it shouldn't be displayed. This happens only when using the "New Reservation" function from the "Customer Details" dialog, which causes that customer record to remain locked and thus not allow its customer details to be opened again until the program is restarted. (Simply closing and re-opening the program corrects the problem, but this patch will eliminate that inconvenience.)

Version 1.3.4 contains two bug fixes:

Version 1.3.5 contains a Win9x printing bug fix for grid-type reports, and may also fix a problem with lock-ups after printing many receipts on Win9x.

Version 1.3 contains some major new features, a number of small enhancements, and a few bug-fixes. We recommend upgrading to the latest version to take advantage of the enhancements and eliminate the bugs. These release notes have been divided into 3 sections, listing the changes since version 1.2.

Note: While there should be no problems with the new version, be aware that you cannot go back to using your database with a previous version of Campground Master once you start using this version, due to upgrades that are automatically made to the database. Be sure you make a backup of the database before installing the new version, in case you have any trouble.

Also Note : When you install the new version, the "demo" database (demo.prk) will be overwritten with a new version of the sample database. If you have been working with the sample database and want to save the changes you’ve made, then you need to load it and then use File | Save As to save it to a different name before installing the new version of the software.

Changes To Be Aware Of:

There are a lot of changes in this version that will affect what you see in normal operations. Please read these carefully before installing the new version. Some of the changes can be disabled if you prefer the original methods, but we feel that they are worthwhile for improving the ease of operation and preventing errors.
