What is new in the Helium Polish 5.2 beta?

Previous version Helium Polish 5 (build 5.1.15) contains some critical errors, find their description below. We have fixed the errors urgently and offer to download and use new version Helium Polish 5.2 beta (build 5.2.2.1).

We apologize for inconvenience.

Please pay attention that this is a beta version of program. It is published to fix errors. Now we are working on new version of Helium Polish.


Helium Polish 5.2 beta (build 5.2.2.1) is an update of Helium Polish 5 (build 5.1.15).
Helium Polish 5.2.2.1 beta is released in October 22, 2010. It is available for download in October 29, 2010.

Fixed bugs

Missing data in step cuts

Fourth values of Crown height, Pavilion height and Girdle thickness were missed for some step cuts. This bug is fixed.

Wrong Width value for Pear type cuttings

There was wrong calculation of Width value for Pears, and wrong calculation of values Girdle ratio, Total height % and others correspondent parameters in percents. This bug is fixed.

Changes in new version

Changed names of some new pictures and parameters for girdle asymmetry

Please use new names and bookmarks:

New names:

Actual Length axis asymmetry
Actual Width axis asymmetry
Length axis symmetry correction
Width axis symmetry correction
Both axes symmetry correction

Instead of old names:

Girdle length-wise asymmetry
Girdle width-wise asymmetry
Length-wise girdle asymmetry removal
Width-wise girdle asymmetry removal
All round girdle asymmetry removal

Please see new names on the screenshot below:

Additional notices for previous release

Changes in girdle asymmetry axis for pear

There was two picture with different symmetry axes for Pears in the previous versions before Helium Polish 5 (build 5.1.15).

1) Girdle asymmetry - picture with actual girdle asymmetry axis
2) Recommendation for girdle asymmetry removing - picture with our recommendation for symmetry correction. It has new calculated symmetry axis.

We decided do not use axis from picture Girdle asymmetry any more, because we supposed that was not correct. Now we use only one axis from picture Recommendation for girdle asymmetry removing. See picture below.

Notice we changed names of pictures:

1) Girdle length-wise asymmetry picture corresponds to old picture Girdle asymmetry
2) Length-wise girdle asymmetry removal picture corresponds to old picture Recommendation for girdle asymmetry removing

Also please notice that now some Pears look straighter and more symmetric.
