Version 1.4.1 – released September 19, 2013

  • fixed two bugs related to loading *.via-files

Version 1.4.0 – released September 18, 2013

  • Improved GUI: queries are now always accessible
  • Layer Styles: save and load typical settings for your layers
  • Improved Queries: access many query features with a simple right-click
  • Agent Attributes: load arbitrary attributes for your agents and visualize them
  • Transit Trips: visualize non-car trips of agents (requires Transit plugin)
  • Transit Analysis: the Transit plugin provides many additional analyses
  • Histogram: setting up color scales has never been easier
  • many other small improvements

Version 1.3.0 – released January 21, 2013

  • automatically create layers when adding data files
  • Improved queries
  • more file formats for XY layer
  • improved network handling
  • new plugin: aggregation analysis
  • uses much less CPU-power, thus longer battery live on laptops
  • many other small improvements

Version 1.2.0 – released July 11, 2012

  • Support for facilities
  • Vastly enhanced functionality for XY plotter
  • Memory improvements, most notably for big networks
  • Improved many queries, e.g. Selected Link Analysis, Link and Node identification, and others
  • Faster movie and screenshot recording (part of MovieRecorder plugin)
  • Several GUI improvements, making the application much more user friendly

Version 1.1.1 – released March 06, 2012

  • Support for MATSim 0.4.0 (release Spring 2012). MATSim generates additional events, which could confuse some transit-related analyses included in via, leading to error messages.

Version 1.1.0 – released Januar 20, 2012

  • Memory improvements: loading large scenarios now uses conciderably less memory
  • Network visualization: The network can use several attributes (not only allowed transport modes) to color the links in a network, or to visualize links with different weights based on the attribute values.
  • New Layer: Link volume differences: allows to compare two scenarios and analyze the differences in link volumes between them.
  • Additional keyboard short cuts for more efficient working.
  • Many small improvements to the User Interface
  • Car Counts (plugin): Highly improved analysis features. Can now exclude single counting stations from the analysis.
  • Movie Creator (plugin): Emprove video encoding so video files should be viewable in more players.
