November 2015: CPTT T.1.49.25 with improved file I/O operations

In the early years of telecontrol protocols the emphasis of testing lied in the interoperability between different system and device suppliers. The focus has changed in the meantime towards reliability and integrity during 24/7-operation: Today, the interest is to find even the tiniest anomalies in the protocol communication.

For COMPROTware:Testtool this means that Message Log files (MLG files) are getting bigger and bigger, operations with giant data sets (files with several 100MB size) need to be performed more and more efficiently. Reason enough to improve all file operations considerably.

Juli 2004: CPTT X.01.41.i mit Span. und Dt. Oberfläche

Espanol

Esta versión del estado actual de desarrollo constituye para nosotros un gran paso hacia la internacionalización de CPTT. Ahora nuestra interfaz gráfica "habla" además de inglés, español y Alemán.

A pesar de que la funcionalidad básica para la internacionalización de CPTT fue desarrollada hace algunos años, la capacidad de agregar y mantener otros idiomas no era lo suficientemente eficiente. Gracias a un rediseño hemos superado este obstáculo y podemos ahora ofrecer a nuestros usuarios hispano-hablantes una nueva interfaz gráfica en español.

Deutsch

Dieser Entwicklungsschnappschuss stellt für uns einen großen Schritt zur weiteren Internationalisierung von CPTT dar: Die Bedienoberfläche "spricht" nun zusätzlich zu Englisch auch spanisch und Deutsch.

Die Basisfunktionalität für die Internationalisierung von CPTT ist schon seit Jahren realisiert, das Hinzufügen und Pflegen weiterer Sprachen war jedoch bisher nicht ausreichend effizient genug möglich. Durch ein Redesign ist diese Hürde jetzt genommen und damit können wir unseren deutschen Anwendern nun auch eine deutsche Bedienoberfläche anbieten.
