1.10.4 (Released 22-07-14)

  1. The Resource Updater now fails cleanly when a resource being updated is already in use. For example, A Help update is detected and requested but the user has the Help system open, therefore the Help file cannot be overwritten.

1.10.2 (Released 24-06-14)

  1. The change log within the application is basic text not allowing us to draw a users attention to critical updates.

  7. Update Source warnings.

This upgrade contains changes to the PAF Lite engine and requires that you update your PAF Lite Resources via the Resource Updater. To avoid issues this should be done immediately after applying this application upgrade.

No changes have been made to the Project Definition. 

1.9.10 (Released 22-05-14)

  1. Various features have been added to improve Project Automation:-

Returns Codes have been expanded allowing users to define a more considered decision of how to progress.
Application Updates can now be applied via command line.
Resource Updates can now be applied via command line.

1.9.9 (Released 15-05-14)

1.9.8 (Released 07-05-14)


  1. Version Control has been added to the Resource Updater to allow us to hide updates not applicable to the current version as certain resource updates are not compatible.
  2. Various improvements have been made to the Resource Updater:-

Disabling of buttons depending on various criteria.
Warning message when closing if updates in progress.
Temporary zip files now deleted when updates are rerun.

1.9.7 (Released 30-04-14)


  1. The TNT Segment Code control is now created and maintained via the sort engine. This change was implemented to bring both sort products into line and therefore eliminate the risk of a site with both products producing duplicate Segment Codes. A site can now point each product to the same central resource, if not possible the Segment Code allotment has also be divided between both products:-


Cygnus - 01 through HH
SwiftSort - I1 through ZH
This allows each product 323 unique Segment Codes which reduces the risk of duplication across products. Of course if a site has multiple installs of a single product then they should also centralise this resource.


1.9.6 (Released 28-04-14)


  1. Added the ability to add user defined data (Text and/or Fields) to a 2D Mailmark Barcode.




  1. Output Client, Job Description and Job ID to [Run Params] for GeMMA.
