New Match! version 3.16 (Build 283)

December 14, 2023

The new Match! version 3.16 Build 283 is a maintenance release in which all currently known bugs have been fixed.

Here is the full list of improvements in the new version:

  • An issue has been resolved that might cause an error message like "You are not entitled to use this more recent version of Match!" after (re-)installation, even though the installed version is still within the range of your update permission time.
  • [Windows] On Windows systems it was not possible to use the mouse wheel, e.g. to correct the zero point error or for zooming.
  • A bug affecting the import/indexing of old PDF-2 databases (prior to 2005) has been fixed.
  • [macOS] Due to a bug, Match! could not be installed on macOS versions earlier than 10.15 "Catalina", even though the (correct) minimum macOS version 10.13 "High Sierra" is mentioned in the system requirements.
  • Some minor bugs have also been fixed.
  • New release of the COD reference database

Match! version 3 users should check their update permission time (e.g. in "Help / About Match!") and then download and install the new version from here.
