Keylab Text ProfessionalKeynetix is pleased to announce that it has today released build 2.1.8.38 of KeyLAB that includes support for Excel 2016 and Windows 10.  The build also includes fixes made in release 2.1.8.34 for improved handling of Staged tests and AGS data production from staged tests.

Since Windows 10 was released on 29 July 2015 the Keynetix development team have been working hard reviewing the changes that the new operating system has made to the way KeyLAB needs to work.

The launch of Excel 2016 on the 22 September 2015 has made the job even harder as KeyLAB has needed to be tested in a new operating system and new Excel version at the same time, while making sure historical Excel Versions and Operating systems still work with the new changes.

“I am very pleased with the speed and response of our excellent development and testing teams” said Roger Chandler, Managing Director of Keynetix and Product Manager for KeyLAB.  “To have a new KeyLAB version released within 10 days of the release of Excel 2016 shows our commitment to the KeyLAB product and our customers.”

The new version is available free for all KeyLAB customers with a valid Maintenance Agreement via the downloads section of our website.

Keynetix have also released a feedback tool for the importing of datalogger data into KeyLAB.  The tool which is available for free from the Keynetix Knowledgebase allows users to convert data from GDS and VJ Tech data loggers into a KeyLAB XML file ready for importing directly into KeyLAB.

“The feedback from the majority of users of this new import tool has been positive.” said Roger Chandler. “We will continue to add routines to the tool to allow the importing of formats from other suppliers as and when customers request them.”

A video showing the tool in action and a downloadable version of the tool are available on the Knowledgebase.
