1.10.68.3605 - Oct 2020
----------------------

Features added:
- Run Graph now displays an interpolated point for the start and the end of the run for a given channel. This helps to make it clear when viewing the graph what the start of run and end of run values were for that channel. 
- Measure Tool now interpolates the start and end of the range. Previously, the measure tool provided measurements from the first sample to the last sample within the range only. 
- End of Session condition now available in Custom Test plugin. This allows a test to be configured, for example, to start immediately and then stop at the end of the file. 
- New ‘Reset on start condition’ option within a Brake 'Trigger' test. This allows the test reset condition to be disabled, so the test will always start on the first trigger.  
- It is now possible to Copy Individual Result Cells, or multi-select cells by holding control, without including result column headers. 
- Session Colour now displayed within the File List ribbon drop-down menu on the Home tab. 
- Gauge Test channel selection organised by source of channel data – i.e. test column gauges, count down gauges, default gauges and test plugin specific gauges. 
- UNR79 Lane Keep - distance to lane computations now work when just one lane is loaded.
- New Release Notes section within the File Menu detailing information such as new plugins, new features and bug fixes in relation to the current Software version. Release notes can also be accessed next to the software version within the About Menu. 
- It is now possible to Expand and Collapse Conditions within Test Settings.
- Dashboard no longer rearranges gauges automatically. Instead, the user has the option to zoom the dashboard in and out depending on available space using the mouse wheel or zoom buttons on the ribbon.
- Other Dashboard improvements to include grid now being hidden and alignment increments being reduced, angular meter avoids wasted margins - and so renders much better when sized small, and new 'Dashboard Update Rate' available in options.
- Custom Test now allows a test to be started when a channel value >= a given value. Previously a test could only be started when a specified value was crossed.
- Lap Timing plugin (beta) - perform lap analysis for driving around a circuit. Also allows remote data connection for live analysis in conjunction with SimPack.
- Improved support for VBOX Touch data files
- R51 Pass By Noise wide open throttle result column between PP' line and BB' Line
- R51 Pass By Noise ability to set engine location
- Chart now defaults to show the whole session - even when more than one run is selected. To compare runs, click on the chart then choose the 'Run Compare' option in the ribbon.
- Clear All button to remove all open files/sessions.
- Brake Test 'Reset on Start Condition' advanced test configuration option added.
- Ability to 'playback' a vbo file. Previously this was only possible if the file had associated video.
- New 'Calculated Column' feature to allow calculations based on test results. Calculations can be based on other result columns or start/end/average/min/max/std.dev value of channel during run.
- VBOX Setup now installed automatically on new installs of VBOX Test Suite.
- VBOX Drivers are now installed on new installations without a separate install prompt.
- It is now possible to install VBOX Test Suite silently via a batch script.

Fixes:
- Crash when cutting 'Before Cursor'.
- Legend order now consistent between charts.
- Fixed issue preventing moving average and cycle TxPH calculation in TxPH plug-in when the file starts close to UTC midnight.
- Exception message when copying column with result ticked.
- KML export was including 0,0 positions from dropouts in averaging to give positions halfway between the two. Now dropouts are ignored.

- Brake Test 'Time since last run' fixed to exclude accidental test starts.
- Zoom when 'Centre on vehicle' is enabled on map. 
- Improved map handling when sats are 0 but position is present.

- Associated audio file continued playback issue resolved.

- Vbo export losing lat/long precision
- VB3iS vertical velocity fix
- Copy chart as image causes user added chart to disappear
- Channel names not shown on all charts for a screenshot.
- Map jumping as user attempts to pan (caused by small mouse drag at same time)
- Map scale numbers seem to jump around when zooming in and out
- Error after deleting gate
- Display all points on live chart - depends on Dashboard Rate being set in options.

Trigger Speed change

#10707: When calculating trigger speeds, VBOX Tools used the closest sample prior to the trigger being active.
VBTS interpolated between samples to get a more accurate time, however the interpolation was done wrong.
The trigger event time offset was being applied to the wrong sample.
This issue is now rectified in 1.7.13.2107
