Chronojump software: 1.5.2 (2015 Jul 25)
- All tests in the software (jump, runs, other tests) have an interface similar to encoder. Selection of tests and options is on the top and there are only two tabs: Capture and Analysis. Results tab (from previous versions) it’s found now inside of Capture (select it at center-right of the screen “Show table”).

- Safer autodetection of Chronopic.
- If no session, two big buttons are shown on the left (new session / open session).
- Person win is much easier to use now.
- Improved interface for tablets with bigger buttons and a person select window (This tables have to run on Windows, Linux or MacOSX).
- Safer load session, export, report (with less database calls). Some users had problems with too much Open/close database actions.
- Safer open of a CSV (spreadsheet) if it’s already opened by other software.
- Fixed not display of calculation of potency and stiffness on interval jumps after the jump.

- Linux: Fixed sound on Linux (using Gstreamer).
- Updated translations: Catalan (99%), Czech (99%), French (79%), Hungarian (56%), Italian(98%), Spanish (100%).
- See translation statistics.
Chronojump software: 1.5.1 (2015 May 29)
- Encoder is autodetected in all systems
- Normal Chronopic (jumps / runs) is autodetected on MacOSX and Linux (Windows will be solved on next version)
- Fixed crash at load session when checkboxes are clicked
- Encoder processes are much faster now (processes leave opened)
- After capture, treeview and bars are not erased. Don’t need to wait to be created the final set graph. This is much faster.
- New layout of encoder capture (video and serie on the right)
- Inertia extra weights selectable from main gui
- Adaptative displayed height on capture
- Encoder configuration window is better now

- Some graphs use inertia instead of mass if some repetitions are inertial
- On load set, current set row is selected
- On side compare speed, power, … 0 horizontal line is shown
- On paint eccentric show also min speed, min power
- Barplot eccentric shows diagonal -45 lines for eccentric
- Calculations (like mean power) are the same now on realtime capture and on other calculations because calculation methods have been unified
- Safer calcule repetitons on capture (shorter are discarded, this fixes some problems in small micromovements or cable distensions while doing the movement)
- Better way to auto-calculate the smoothings on eccentric using power instead of speed
- Eccentric speed is shown in absolute value

Chronojump software: 1.5.0 (2015 March 17)
Update 8 April: We published an update for MacOSX fixing a screen that gets hanged on start. Now the official 1.5.0 download for Mac has this update and other improvements that will be on version .1.
- Photos and video work now on MacOSX.
- First startup of the software (creation of database) now is much faster (6 times aprox.)
- In order to detect and fix bugs fast, a log is always saved and can be sended easily to us (just press a button if software crashed).On MacOSX it has been deactivated temporarily, but users can send it opening ‘preferences’ window, then clicking on ‘open logs folder’ and sending the files by email.
- Improved start on MacOSX. On some systems crashes sometimes.
- When one or more peresons are loaded, now the ‘modify person’ window does not appear. Then loading is faster.
- New capture method. Faster and works in all systems (old method didn’t work on XP and has some problems on MacOSX).
- On capture now realtime data on inertial machines is dispayed. Repetitions are shown as concentric or concentric-eccentric.But, after capture, repetitions will be shown as concentric or ecc-con. This happens because all the software parts are not prepared yet to manage the con-ecc repetitions.
- Results on realtime capture are now very similar to the results obtained at the end of capture.
- Inertial machines with too much friction can use now the inertial momentum calculation method because now it needs only half of the oscillations than before.
- During the capture. now the force can be shown but only numerical. Graphical realtime force capture will be done in next version.
- Video record and play is done in a bigger and centered area of main window.
- At the ‘analyze’ tab, ‘cross variables’ button, now there’s a different icon for eccentric-concentric phases, and also laterality. Laterality is shown also in other graphs.
- If there’s a problem on capture, software will not crash now. User has to be able to cancel the analyze process.
- Fixed bug exporting on encoder. It didn’t worked on some systems.
Jumps and runs:
- Added stiffness calculation on jumps.
- Fixed a problem on performing interval runs when only on track has been detected.
- Fixed bug with the ‘time’ label at the end of some jumps and runs.
- Better colors for differentiate ecc-con phases.
- Is USB cable is disconnected while capture with encoder, software detects it and alerts the user. This works fine on Linux and MacOSX, but the fix is still pending on Windows.
- On the ecc-con capture, first repetition is discarded if it’s concentric.
- While capturing now is not possible to press buttons like weight, laterality, … changing this button on capture produces problems in previous version.
- Fixed some bugs on loosing information on serie recalculation (video got lost). All the lost data has been recuperated.
- Fixed a problem on saving 1RM when it couldn’t be calculated.
- Fixed problem on 1RM calculation of different exercises at the same time. Now it’s not allowed to calculate 1RM of different exercies together.
- Fixed small problem on the person displacement on the axis rotary encoder at inertial machines.
- More precision on inertia momentum calculation because now two decimals are allowed in machine diameters.
Jumps and runs:
- On multijumps capture ‘height’ is shown and can be used as feedback (bells).
- If USB is disconnected at the middle of test, test can be aborted (on previous versions software started an infinite bucle).
- Deleted “maximum” jump, now “Free” jumps is used.
- Fixed power calculation on Drop Jump (extra weight was not used in the formula).
- Now multijumps show also power.
- Fixed Chronopic connection problem on multijumps or interval runs tabs.
- Improvements on jumps and runs cancel. Now software performs better after a cancelled test.
- Exporting reactive jumps show more data now.
- Fixed a random problem on Chronopic detection that makes Chronopic window close suddenly.
