queXF 1.18.1 released

queXF 1.18.1 has been released today

A major new feature is the processing forms as greyscale/grayscale for better management of dithering. This means queXF will process forms scanned as greyscale/grayscale (256 shades) just as well (in some cases better) than forms scanned as monochrome (1 bit). You may need to alter the IMAGE_THRESHOLD configuration item to determine the monochrome conversion cutoff.

Bug fixes relating to banding (default output width of a text field, and box detection) and verification (UTF-8 encoding) have been resolved.

queXF 1.18.0 Released

queXF 1.18.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

Multiple bug fixes and better handling of scanned pages of varying sizes. This release makes the "Page setup" feature optional instead of required. In most cases - this is ideal as using automatic edge detection works better on differing page sizes.

Read on for details of how to upgrade (small database change required).

queXF 1.15.0 Released

queXF 1.15.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

Single choice fields with more than 1 box are now automatically confirmed for the verifier where strictly one box is correctly detected. This should greatly improve productivity of verifiers where there are many single choice fields to verify. Duplicate forms that have not been verified can now be easily deleted using the duplicate form function.

queXF 1.14.0 Released

queXF 1.14.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

This release adds a new feature where page edge detection has been greatly improved. queXF can determine if a page corner has been detected incorrectly and repair it. This should greatly improve page alignment where scans are not ideal. Please report any successes or failures using the Launchpad bugs or answers system.

To upgrade (from queXF 1.13.x)

queXF 1.13.6 Released

queXF 1.13.6 has been released today on Sourceforge

This release fixes a bug where the temporary directory contains spaces. It also adds an "Accept page" feature which verifiers can click to accept all boxes on the page (instead of going through each one). Translations have also been updated. Thank you as always to those who have translated queXF on Launchpad.

queXF 1.13.5 Released

queXF 1.13.5 has been released today on Sourceforge

This release is a mixed bag of bug fixes and minor feature enhancements. New features include a display of remaining forms to verify on the verification page, and better barcode handling where the scan is dithered based on a patch from John Milner (thank you). Bug fixes include using POST instead of GET on verification submits which speeds submission considerably, and fixing CSV output of mutiple choice questions. See the changelog for full details.
