We are happy to announce the first public beta version of the upcoming Wing Helper 1.3.0! Our Alpha Team already did a great job in making sure that this version is working correctly. In this beta test phase, we are looking forward to finding - with your help - and fixing the last remaining bugs and issues.
Version 1.3.0 Beta 1 can read the files created with previous official versions. Due to a change in the file format, the older versions of Wing Helper will not be able to read files saved with 1.3.0 Beta 1 (or newer)! For that reason, we strongly suggest that you always store away your existing designs before working on them with a newer version. By doing so, you keep the option to step back to the previous Wing Helper version if you wish to or if a need arises.
1.3.0 introduces a great variety of exciting new features, most notably the support for non-trapezoid wing forms. In order to enable this, we had to re-work many program internals, changing quite a few of existing methods and algorithms. For that reason, please make sure to double-check your existing designs after moving to Wing Helper 1.3.0 Beta 1 (or newer) - it could be, that some settings will need a bit of fine-tuning.
This version can be freely downloaded and installed. If you already have a valid Wing Helper license, you will be able to work with 1.3.0 Beta 1 as if it were an official final release. If you don't own a Wing Helper license yet, you will see the same restrictions with respect to DXF and PDF export as with any officially released version.
In parallel to the beta test phase, we will be working on preparing the documentation for the 1.3.0 functionality. To see how to use the new functionality, please refer to this video tutorial.
This beta version is valid until 2017/01/30. At latest at that date, it will be replaced by either a new beta version, or by the official version 1.3.0, depending on the findings.

We wish you a Happy New Year and much fun with the Wing Helper!
