For those who are interested in Course Setting/Control Description Software:
Purple Pen 3.0 has just been released. This version of Purple Pen has several major new features, including:
Direct (vector based) support for OpenOrienteering Mapper maps. You can load, view, print, and export to OpenOrienteering Mapper maps in the same was as OCAD maps. Full vector fidelity is maintained.
Course Variations and Relays: You can now add forks or loops into courses, creating courses with variations. When you have a course with variations, Purple Pen can automatically assign variations to relay team members.
64-bit Support: Purple Pen automatically runs in 64-bit mode when possible, allowing large bitmaps to be used as base maps.
Much improved PDF support: When using a PDF file as the base map for course design, compatibility is much better, especially for PDFs produced by OCAD. Downloading and installing GPL GhostScript is no longer required.
Many other smaller features and bug fixes are also included. If you haven't checked out Purple Pen recently, you might want to give it a new look.
As always, Purple Pen is free (although donations are appreciated if you like and use the software!), and runs on Windows (XP through 10). Translation is included for 15+ languages.
