It has been awhile since I’ve blogged or released new software but that is about to change. October 2019, I will be releasing DRC 4.0 which is a complete rewrite of my Digital Rockhound’s companion software as a new C# WPF application. I’ve replaced the database engine with sqlite.
I hope in 2020-21, I will have a release based on DRC 4.0.
This got me thinking this morning about the timelines of my previous releases.
Release history of Digital Rockhound’s companion:
- DRC 1.0 1996-2008: MS Access 97 + application
- DRC 2.0 2008-2012: VB6 rewrite, MS Access database, crystal reports
- DRC 3.0 2012-2019 : C# rewrite, winforms, MS Access database, eliminated crystal reports, SharpMap GIS
