7.0 beta

Post by gameshowcrew »

Version 7 is currently still under development but we are very close to General Availablity. We invite you to install and run this new version but there is a chance you encounter a bug. Please let us know when you do.

You can download the beta version here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/r01xivljjsn8 ... MEYda?dl=0

Note: while we are in beta there will be (almost) daily updates. You will receive a notification in QuizXpress Studio when a new build is available.

If you own a commercial key, this key will be upgraded to 7 (and back to 6 when needed) automatically. Please keep in mind that quizzes saved in version 7 can no longer be used in version 6 so make backups.

The What's New document (PDF) with details about the new features can be found here:

Version 7.0

ENH: Regular and Trivia Bingo support (with V1.6 of the Smart Buzzer app)

ENH: You can now copy sound items between slides in Studio
ENH: Improved control over pictures (corner radius, border color, border width)

ENH: A video can now be set as the background for the slide (select the video, open the properties grid and set 'Is slide background' to true)

ENH: You can now adjust the countdown time of questions while the show is running (in desktop Director -> Questions tab -> Adjust timing)

For example when setting "doughnut;donut" as the correct answer, both 'doughnut' and 'donut' are considered correct.

ENH: You can now specify the transition per slide in Studio (advanced properties grid, 'Transition' property)
