 nokuBT Release Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

See readme_first.bat in the installation zip file for new install and updating instructions.



********************************************************************************
---------- Version 1.05.00 -----------------------------------------------------
********************************************************************************
Download released July 16, 2019


--- Changes and Enhancements ---

- nokuBT environment may now be viewed or printed

- nokuBT install routine streamlined for maximum automation during build process.

- Entity ID settings files are now built automatically from user input during "new"
install procedures. Manual file edits of Entity ID fields were previously mandatory.

--- SendEmail Extension ---

- "Test Email" routine now calls validate_nokuconfig.bat. nokuBT WS no longer needs
to be restarted after making changes to nokuBT settings in the file noku_config.bat
prior to a new email test.

During email testing, live changes to nokuBT settings are now validated and applied
immediately at the start of a new email test. The purpose is to improve debug
efficiency for new email configurations. Otherwise, apart from email testing, nokuBT
WS and nokuBT OS must still be restarted after nokuBT settings are changed.

New install and manual updating of settings files is required:

v. 1.05.00 nokuWS_EntityIDconfig.bat is NOT backward-compatible with v. 1.04.00.

********************************************************************************
January 5, 2018


--- Changes and Enhancements ---

- nokuBT File Validation routine developed, tested and now included in nokuBT.
nokuBT File Validation is the first of two routines planned for nokBT that will

backup drives. Suspicious file changes, subject to implemented criteria, cause
nokuBT to block the startup of the disk synch application and flag the block for
user intervention.

A good backup is the one that you need, that you have, and that restores successfully without errors.
