- New Look Livestock Screen
Some new fields have been added to the Livestock
screen, making it overcrowded. As a result the Notes and Health fields have
been placed on seperate Tabs.
New Identifier Fields. We have been asked by various clients to add
additional ID fields for each animal (I.E. Champion Numbers, Tattoo
Numbers, Ear Tags, Kennel Number, etc). Two additional identifier fields
have been added, the description of each field can be added from the
New Weight Field. A weight field has been added. This can be any unit you use (IE
pounds, kilograms, grams, etc) according to the setting in options.
- Deduplification on Entry
When adding a new animal, the system will automatically check
to see if an animal with the same name/identification exists and warn
accordingly. You can select in the options screen whether you want to
deduplify by name, id or both.
- Screens Now Sizeable
The main screen can now be sized to fit your screen resolution,
all other screens will scale accordingly. iBreed now looks far better at
high screen resolutions.
- New Image/Photo Library
Photos of your animals can now stored and printed. NOTE, iBreed
just holds a link to the image and, optionally copies it to a master
library folder. This folder does not get backed up with the iBreed
database, it is your responsibility to backup the images.
- Multiple Diary Updating
The diary can now be updated for multiple animals at the same
time. This is useful when updating medical treatment and reminders that
apply to more than one animal.
- Automatic Identification
iBreed always used to assign a name to unnamed animals by
giving them a prefix of "A" (Automatic) and a unique number. The prefix
can now be specified to make it more applicable to your stud/breeding
name, this can be more than one character.
- Automatic Backup
Backups can now be made to devices other than floppy disks (as
long as they can be written to by Windows "Copy" command).
- Automatic Genotype Allocation (Mid Version 1.5)
When creating a new animal, iBreed will automatically allocate
a genotype to it be matching the colour and then examining the parents.
You no longer need to go into the genotype screen to do this. This was
actually introduced midway in version 1.5 - so you might already have it!
The exact method of running the upgrade depends on
the browser and browser version you are using. For the most common
browsers you can just select Open and iBreed will do the
rest. If you are only given the option to Save, you
must save the file ibreedupgrade.exe to a temporary folder on your computer (this must not be the directory where iBreed is
installed) and then from the Run command or Windows Explorer run ibreedupgrade.exe.
