For a complete list of changes and bug fixes since the initial release of RSLog, see the RSLog Updates History page.

May 10, 2023

  • A new version of log template header/footer designer is released:
    • Piezometer Readings: when linking a database label to borehole data, under the Groundwater group user can select Piezometer Readings. This will print a table with depth and elevation of all groundwater level measurements entered in Instrumentation tab of borehole data entry page.
    • User can now set vertical alignment of texts.
  • A new version of Cross-Section Designer is released:
    • Added Vertical Exaggeration to 3D mode to allow better visualization of larger sites,

    • Added a new feature to export all cross-section polygons to JSON format (from Export button on the top toolbar > click List of Polygons menu)
    • Pressing Esc button will no longer close the page; This prevents accidental closing of the Cross-Section Designer page,
    • Clicking on a field test graph now allows customizing the appearance of the graph. The following properties were added to graphs:
      • Data Column: user can select the column to plot. For example for a CPT test you can select to plot qc, fs, u2 etc.
      • Style: allows user to select whether the field test data is shown as a graph or as a table.
