We’re pleased to announce the release of the 2.3.0 Otii application along with the 1.1.0 Otii Arc firmware. It’s a fairly small application release that improves on existing features, fixes a few bugs and improves performance. The firmware is the largest release since the very first one. Let’s start with some desktop changes.
Making it easier to align recording is one of the most sought-after improvements from our customers. After a whole lot of refactoring in the selection code, it’s now possible by right-clicking a recording and then choosing to offset it, either right or left, by the duration of the selection. At some point this should be improved further, so several recordings can be offset at the same time in this manner.
While refactoring the selection code to enable the alignment, a number of usability and performance improvements were also made.
Statistics are no longer shown for hidden recordings. Why spend time computing something that probably isn’t of interest either way?
When making a selection over 1 second in duration, statistics will not be calculated until the mouse stops moving. A smooth selection can thus be made over a huge data set. If the standard delay of 500 ms without mouse movements before the calculation begins doesn’t suit you, it can be customized in the preferences.
A few other minor tweaks were also made, for example when offsetting a recording only that recording is re-calculated instead of all of them. This is not the end of improvements in this area. For the GUI to remain responsive, statistics calculations should happen in a separate thread. But right now, focus must shift to other tasks.
In addition to these two larger changes, some smaller ones are worth mentioning:

The firmware has seen many changes, some of them are already mentioned above, as it’s a joint effort between the application and the firmware. There are however a few changes in the firmware unrelated to the application.
