Change log

Unlike much other software, once you purchase a PoreXpert licence, updates (although not upgrades) are supplied free of charge.
PoreXpert is in continual use for research and development, and we regularly receive feedback from users.
Where possible, such feedback is acted on, and changes are included in the next release.
Details of planned, current and previous updates are shown in the table below.

The latest update of the Help pages accessible from this website was on 9th February 2022.  The update includes answers to questions posed by attendees at a recent online training programme, and is now more up to date than that supplied with Build 703 detailed below.
