  • Centrafuse 2.0 RC1

    Here is Centrafuse 2.0 RC1

    This release is being provided as a FREE update to Centrafuse 1.20+. Unless you have XLE, we recommend that you uninstall all previous version of Centrafuse and all previous plugin installs before installing 2.0 RC1. However, you may run the install over your existing installation to keep your maps, settings and current configuration intact.

    To upgrade your 1.20 license to a 2.0 license, visit your My Account page. If you do not see your license key on your My Account, please contact Support.

    From the My Account page, click the UPGRADE KEY link below to produce your new 2.0 license key. To install the Release Candidate for 2.0, download and install directly over your current 1.20 version. If you have the XLE version installed, the 2.0 installer will recognize this and leave your maps and settings intact.

    Centrafuse 2.0 RC1 contains many new features and bug fixes for issues found in CF 1.20+. It has also been converted to use the .NET 2.0 Framework. Please note that this version is a release candidate. It should be expected that there will be issues surfacing on various systems. With your help and feedback, we will continually be working through these issues and hope to be able to provide updates weekly or bi-weekly. Read the Release Notes for the complete list of new features.

    Release Notes

    Important Notes

    * This version is a release candidate, and contains many new features. It should be expected that there will be issues surfacing on various systems. With the help of users, we will be working to resolve these issues quickly and hope to be able to provide updates weekly or bi-weekly.

    * This version includes a Bluetooth Stack, and it will take over and become the default "driver" for your bluetooth device if you currently have one installed and working with another stack. Anyone using bluetooth for things such as mice, GPS receivers, etc, will need to re-set these devices up in the new stack's Windows GUI.

    * All 3rd-party plugins should reference the new cfplugin.dll and be recompiled under .NET 2.0

    * Settings are now defaulted to show the Basic Settings mode. Advanced Settings can be enabled in 2 ways.
    To enable Advanced Settings temporarily, hold down the "+" button in the Main Settings Screen for 8 seconds.
    To permanently enable Advanced Settings, similar to older version of CF, pass the -advsettings command line option when starting Centrafuse.

    * Each settings group that used to hold a Line-In value and had Buffer functionality will now hold a Record-Line-In value and a Playback-Line-In value, which will work with Buffer On, and Buffer Off, respectively.

    * Basic Event Logging has been added to better help us diagnose user issues. Event Logging can be enabled in General Settings (an advanced setting), or can be enabled by passing the -logevents command line option when starting Centrafuse.

    * The Bluetooth stack provided with RC1 is a trial version and currently has a 5 MB transfer limit. If after a few phone calls the Bluetooth stops working, you will need to restart your PC to re-initialize the Bluetooth driver. This is only a limitation of the BlueSoleil trial edition within this Release Candidate and will not have this limitation when officially released.

    * iPhone users - Pairing to Centrafuse must be initiated from the iPhone. There is an issue with the iPhone software that will not allow Centrafuse to initiate the pairing process.
