BattleScribe 1.15.00 Released!

Important: This release changes the roster file format. You should update BattleScribe to 1.15.00 on all your computers and devices to avoid problems! It may take a little while to start up the first time as BattleScribe converts your files to the new format.

Release day is here again, this time on all platforms: Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.

Today's release brings a big overhaul of something that's needed work for a long time: The "view roster" output. This is probably the last bit of creaky old code that needed a serious update - and I must admit it's a big improvement!

The output now looks much nicer - whether as HTML, text, BBCode or Markdown - and there are several new options so you can customize the printout to your taste. Special mention goes to the new "minimal" output option - it reduces the length of the output by omitting selections that aren't relevant. This really cleans things up so that copying/pasting your list into forum posts and social networks works really nicely.

Here's some screenshots of the minimal text output on mobile and desktop:
