 +[[Release Notes|<<​ List of all previous releases]]
 +====== Release 2.5 - Key Features ======
 +===== Internet Explorer Support =====
  
 +It's been tested with IE8 and IE9.  Both offer the same experience you've become accustomed to in Firefox, Chrome and Safari. ​ Because of IE8's limited support for styling, some minor visual effects (basically, eye candy) like rounded borders and shadows are missing. ​ So although IE8 version will look a teensy bit "​blockier",​ it will behave identically and fundamentally look the same as in all the other supported browser.
 +
 +IE7 simply lacks the technical capability to run this application,​ and can't be supported.
 +
 +===== Program Changes =====
 +
 +The World Scout Environment Award and Climate Change Badge have been released. ​ To support this international initiative, Scouts Canada has also revised (slightly) a number of existing badges to reflect the increased focus on climate change. ​ The changes to existing badges do not add or remove requirements,​ they just tweak the wording (e.g., by adding "and explain how this reduces carbon emissions"​). ​ I also added notes to the World Conservation Awards explaining the phase-out strategy.
 +
 +Added the World Scout Environment Award and the Climate Change Badge to the Pack Edition (in the "​Natural World" category). ​ This also required updating the Recycling Badge, the Home Repair Badge, the Cyclist Badge, and the Family Helper Badge to conform to the latest changes.
 +
 +Added the World Scout Environment Award and Climate Change Badge to the Troop Edition. ​ This also required updating the Recycling Badge, the Home Repair Badge, and the Chief Scout'​s Award.
 +
 +===== Completion Reports =====
 +
 +Improved ordering of choices of badges/​awards for '​Completion'​ report, so the reports you are most likely to want to see are at the top of the list.
 +
 +Reports now included bookmarked and ready-to-test statuses for the youth, so you can see what you've flagged for the youth, or what they think they ready to test on.
 +
 +Added Voyageur-Level and Pathfinder-Level Activity Badges Combo reports to the Troop Edition. ​ This lets you see how the whole troop is progressing with respect to the four activity badges, and definitely helps with program planning.
 +
 +Added support for printing of reports.
 +
 +===== Miscellaneous User Interface Tweaks =====
 +
 +Web users can click next/prev links to cycle through badges. ​ iPhone/iPod users already had the ability to swipe, so this brings a complementary capability to the desktop user.
 +
 +You can now create a login account at the same time you create a youth record (used to have to be done as two separate steps)
 +
 +Improved appearance/​colour scheme for both Pack and Troop.
 +
 +===== Bug Fixes =====
 +  * Youth weren'​t organized into patrols on initial log
 +  * Hang during loading on re-installs
 +  * Continually repeating "​intermittent connectivity"​ message when offline
 +  * hanging youth from sidebar doesn'​t refresh badge-details checkmarks
 +  * Marking requirements as complete wasn't automatically refreshing revisted '​Completion'​ report
 +  * Minor sizing issue when first started on an iPad
 +  * You could login even if there were no youth associated with a login
 +  * "sync in progress..."​ message sometimes didn't dismiss for 30 seconds
