Unfortunately, since releasing HeeksCNC 1 on March 14th 2014, we have found a few bugs ( with help from customers ).

These are
18th March - Fixed a problem with simulating ball nosed and corner radiused milling cutter.
24th March - Fixed G98 problem and removed O line for LinuxCNC
25th March - Removed "Add Tags" from the "Tags" object, because it was causing a crash sometimes.
25th March - Fixed a problem where untitled files post process to the filename given
7th April - A fix to profile operation. Finish Step Down parameter was being ignore in post processing
24th April - A fix to dxf import of closed polyline entities
24th April - Automatic roll on point was not working for some shapes, and roll on was on the wrong side
24th April - When the profile or pocket operation is selected there is no indication of which sketch is selected
18th June - fixed After detach, unattached operations fail
18th June - fixed a viewing bug
3rd July - fixed a problem where DXF files weren't importing the POLYLINE objects
16th September - fixed a problem where output in inches was having problems with the arc centers, where output in mm was ok
17th September - version of 16th September had a script error with the solid simulation
6th October - fixed a problem where anti-clockwise spline sketches ( from SVG import ) were not being machined
6th October - optimised the toolpath for profile operations on open sketches, so that for depths after the first depth, the tool rapids right down to the previous depth
16th October - added Spanish translation
16th October - fixed "3D rotate not undoable"
16th October - I now ignore "z finish depth" for finishing pass of profile operation
1st April 2015 - I fixed a bug where you could select items other than points for the drilling operation, and invalid point id items in the drilling operation caused a crash.
1st April 2015 - Changed software name to HeeksCNC 1.1
19th August 2015 - Added an option to import uninstanced blocks from dxf files. Default is now off.
19th August 2015 - File->Import now remembers the folder, separately to File->Open
19th August 2015 - I fixed "Circle pocket operation takes place twice"
25th August 2015 - Fixed a bug where clicking on an operation which links to an Area object was crashing
25th Augst 2015 - Fixed a problem introduced 19th August 2015, where VS2005 redistributable files were not in the installation, causing HeeksCNC to not work on many PCs
25th April 2018 - I cancelled and changed all the help links to point to my actual website, renamed to v1.3

These have all been fixed and the latest versions ( to buy and trial version ) are working correctly.
