Release Notes - [v1.9.0] – 16/05/2012

We had feedback that a number of cPads were rebooting at strange times, and becoming stuck on a white reboot screen. Through our testing processes we were able to establish a network leak, and a few “random” processes were the culprits. Version 1.9.0 fixes these problems. We recommend all cPad’s in the market are running 1.9.0 or above.

New Features

  • Version number now displayed on the welcome screen
  • New Network driver switch


  • Memory leaks fixed within the network library. Libcnet version is now cnet v1.02
  • Fixed loopback interface management. The process “net.agent” no longer waits for the loopback interface, resulting in memory gain.
  • After a crash, the application will no longer restart completely. Only the main application is restarted.
  • Crash noticed when entering manually a card ID after having presented an invalid card. It is no longer possible to enter manually an ID while an information screen is still displayed
  • Fixed a Freeze in the application when searching an account by name. If the account is not found, the application seemed frozen.

Known Issues

  • Randomly, a message “no account found” is displayed when the item “more” in the account list is pressed

Release Notes [v 1.8.0]

New Features

  • Additional security features added.
  • Card reader name is now case insensitive.


  • Time server is now managed so devices can find time in UTC. (Previously clocks were set to french timezone) There is still no parameter to set location.
  • The firmware version is displayed in the main screen (bottom left) so you can easily see the status of the current version.
  • Search field for shared accounts are now properly cleared between the user sessions. Randomly the cPad was freezing after a print job release.
  • Screen saver timeout level one has been removed.

The screen saver timeout level 1 was removed because it was generating too much electromagnetic noise, the back light intensity was reduced by modulating the power signal, however it was not good and sometimes it would lead to problems.
