Embroidery Reader 2.1.0 Released

I’ve released Embroidery Reader 2.1.0, which adds a new feature to help report unhandled exceptions. It also includes fixes for the following issues:

  • Displaying gibberish for some designs
  • Crashes when trying to open certain files
  • Some settings get saved when cancel button is clicked on preferences dialog
  • Possibly other crashes related to opening files (generally improved robustness of file reading code)

Visit the Embroidery Reader page to download the new version.

Embroidery Reader 2.0.2 Released

I’ve release Embroidery Reader 2.0.2 to fix a few things:

  • Fix a repeating crash if the program is closed while minimized
  • Fix a potential crash when window is resized before a design is loaded
  • Fix the path used to look for translations (Fixes %MENU_FILE%, %MENU_EDIT%, %MENU_VIEW% and %MENU_HELP% text appearing in menu)
  • Add some usage instructions to embroideryInfo utility output when run with no input specified

See the Embroidery Reader page to download the new version.

Embroidery Reader 2.0 Released

Version 2.0 of Embroidery Reader is now available. It adds a few features and fixes some bugs as well.
Changes from version 1.5.1:

  • Translation support – Italian, Chinese Traditional and Chinese Simplified translations have been submitted by users. (Thank you Andrea and Keetian!)
  • Transparency grid option to help stitches stand out against the background, similar to some image editors
  • A new MSI-based installer, which should have better support for all versions of Windows, including 64 bit
  • Updated to .Net 4.0, which should allow Embroidery Reader to run on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10
  • Fixed some bugs
  • Added some other bugs (probably)

Please note: version 1.5.1 and earlier must be uninstalled before version 2.0 can be installed. I tried to find an automatic way to do this, but it became too time consuming. Please accept this link to a Microsoft help article about uninstalling programs instead. 🙂
