Posted by Jean Femia on Aug 26, 2014 3:43:00 AM

groov22_trend_432x268groov 2.2 is now released! It's a free update and it includes new and improved features you'll want to have, like these.

Improvements to trends

  • Track more data with up to 4 pens
  • Track data longer—up to 7 days
  • See data on 2 axes
  • Choose longer scan rates if you need them

New dark backgrounds up to black

When you change background colors, gadgets automatically change color as needed to remain visible.

New gadget: Momentary Button

This new gadget works just like a normally open/normally closed pushbutton: it sends one value when pushed and another value when released. Handy for tasks such as jogging a drive feed or panning an IP camera.

New Stash area

Want to show a gadget on PCs and tablets, but hide it on smartphones? Just drag it to the Stash in the Handheld view. It won't appear on the small screen but will still be there on bigger screens.

Need to save a gadget you're working on but not ready to roll out? Stash it! It'll be saved but not visible to your users.

These are just a few of the changes in groov 2.2. There are lots more. See what else is included here in the Readme file.
