FORident Software is pleased to announce the release of HemoSpat v1.9 for Mac OS X 10.9-10.10 [64-bit Intel], Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. This update is available to all registered users.
In June 2015 I had the opportunity to teach an Advanced HemoSpat course at the Canadian Police College (CPC). We used HemoSpat version 1.8 and focused on using the new stain selection technique. This allowed me to observe its use to come up with better methods and, along with feedback from the class, used that information to fine tune the process.
HemoSpat version 1.9 introduces these refinements to make the process clearer and more streamlined.
I wrote up an article about the new stain selection workflow which should give a better idea of how it works in practice.
This release also contains many bug fixes and optimizations. For download links and a more complete list of changes, please see the release notes.
As always we look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!
