  • Updated the Saudi Arabia examination timetable file, by Silver.

New in version 5.15.0 (October 28th, 2011)

  • Added two new constraints:
  • Activities occupy max time slots from selection. This is useful in more cases, for instance to force some teachers to have activities in certain time slots. (For example, if in a 5 days week with 6 hours per day, teacher T has 20 hours of activities and needs to have activities in the first 3 hours of Monday: add a constraint with all the teacher's activities, all time slots minus these 3 (so 5*6-3=27 slots selected in the constraint), and specify the maximum number of selected time slots occupied by the selected activities to be 17.) Suggested by Zsolt Udvari, Christian Kemmer, Davide G. M. Salvetti, lalloso, Silver, and maybe other users.
  • Activities max simultaneous in selected time slots. User chooses a set of activities, a set of time slots, and specifies that in each time slot there should be an upper limit on the activities from the chosen set. Useful for example if you want each slot to have say at least 3 free teachers, for substitution or supervision.
  • Updated to Qt 4.7.4.
  • Removed dependence of Qt3Support classes. Many dialogs were changed. This is to improve FET and to prepare it for the future Qt 5.
  • The program is now storing the geometry of most dialogs (suggested by more users. Zsolt Udvari suggested to store also the Activity planning dialog settings).
  • The activity tags, students, teachers, subjects, rooms, buildings, activities, subactivities, all time constraints and all space constraints dialogs contain a draggable splitter, for better viewing (suggested by daviodan).
  • Taking care of when a file was modified. When it was not modified, the user can quit FET directly (suggested by Horatiu Halmajan and maybe other users).
  • Recently used files list (suggested by daviodan, Silver and maybe other users).
  • Activities rooms statistics - it shows the list of activities which will certainly or possibly be scheduled in an unspecified room (suggested by Volker Dirr, who also did a part of the coding, Corfiot, Fabio Piedimonte).
  • Removed the upper limit on the number of time and space constraints.
  • When modifying the days or hours, the affected constraints will be modified or removed, after confirmation from the user.
  • Language change is activated without restarting.
  • Many other interface improvements.
  • Added a new sample file, by Silver.
  • Improved the Morocco sample file and the Morocco instructions (by Liviu Lalescu and Chafik Graiguer).

New in version 5.14.5 (May 27th, 2011)

  • Updated to Qt 4.7.3.
  • The generate multiple timetable dialog now shows max placed activities for the current timetable and for each timetable with time limit exceeded (suggested by Yush Yuen).
  • Non-critical interface bug fix under Mac OS X: in the add and modify activity dialogs, the tab widget for the subactivities was too large, showing all the 35 possible components. Bug reported by Yush Yuen.
  • Minor interface bug fix under Mac OS X: the dialogs now show minimize/maximize buttons. Bug reported by Yush Yuen.
  • Minor improvement in the HTML exported timetables (multi-line comments look better), by Volker Dirr.
  • Added a Galician translation, by Juan Marcos Filgueira Gomis (based on the Spanish translation, as of April 2011, by Jose Cesar Fernandez Lopez).
  • Added a Spanish secondary school example file, by llantones.

New in version 5.14.4 (March 24th, 2011)

  • Updated the French translation, by Regis Bouguin (it is now complete).
  • Added a complete Serbian translation, by Ivan Starchevicy and Radan Putnik.
  • Minor improvements.
  • Added 3 new sample files, by waleed, M K Lohumi and Asti Widayanti.

New in version 5.14.3 (November 2nd, 2010)

  • Upgraded to Qt 4.7.0.
  • Improved the Greek translation, by Dimitris Kanatas.
  • Minor interface improvements.
  • Added two new sample files, by Massimo Mancini and Dimitris Kanatas.

New in version 5.14.2 (September 27th, 2010)

  • A rare possible problem is improved (not completely solved). This problem was reported by Marco Barsotti: for some fixed timetables the generation may report incorrectly an impossible timetable. This problem cannot be solved perfectly, only patched, and this will hopefully solve the problem in all practical situations.
  • An activity can now be split into 35 (it was previously only 10) - suggested by mohd on the forum.
  • Improved a bit the add/modify activity dialogs (inactive tabs for the components of a subactivity are disabled).
  • Updated the Slovak translation, by Ondrej Gregor.
  • Added a new sample file, by Marco Barsotti.

New in version 5.14.1 (August 13th, 2010)

  • Added a partial Hebrew translation, by Yotam Medini (only the main menu).

New in version 5.14.0 (July 19th, 2010)

  • Improved the random number generator, so that potential cycling problems are avoided (though probably nobody met such problems). The new random number generator has a much longer period and is better. The command line parameters for specifying the random seed are changed and you need to change your script if you use FET command line and if you want to specify the random seed. See the README file for the new command line parameters for specifying the random seed.
  • Improved memory consumption on constraints activity/activities/subactivities preferred starting times/preferred time slots.
  • Minor interface improvements.
  • Updates in the Arabic translation, by Hatim Alahmadi.

  • Very rare bug fix (crash in import if some fields in a line are missing, reported by murad).
  • Other minor bug fixes in import (if an imported line was incorrect, the report message didn't specify this line number, in some cases).
  • Updated the Indonesian translation, by Nirwan Yus.
  • Updated the Spanish translation, by Jose Cesar Fernandez Lopez.
  • Code cleanup

New in version 5.13.4 (June 14th, 2010)

  • Updated the Indonesian translation, by Nirwan Yus.
  • Very rare crash bugs fixed.
  • Code cleanup.

New in version 5.13.1 (April 1st, 2010)

  • Increased maximum number of teachers, subjects, rooms and buildings to 6000 (they were 3000 previously).
  • Corrected some HTML minor problems, by Volker Dirr.
  • Added a new sample file, by alfaromeo (from Morocco). This user also describes tricks to use official FET for Moroccan schools.

New in version 5.13.0 (March 22nd, 2010)

  • Updated to Qt 4.6.2.
  • For constraints students (set) min hours daily is now possible to allow empty days (in advanced usage) suggested by Horatiu Halmajan and Catalin Maican.
  • Added a simple activity planning form, by Volker Dirr (see Advanced menu).
  • Now it is allowed to have 3 constraints of type interval max days per week for each students subgroup or teacher (it was maximum 2 previously).
  • Added export of active activities, by Volker Dirr.
  • Added Brazilian Portuguese translation (partial, incomplete yet), by Werner Bruns and Frank Martin.
  • Added Danish translation (partial, only the main form and a few other forms), by David Lamhauge.
  • Improved a bit the memory consumption.
  • The tables contain now an -x(lowercase) if the teacher/students set/room is not available and -X(uppercase) for a break (suggested by George Miliotis). Also, you can configure separately if you want breaks displayed and/or not available displayed.
  • Removed some useless messages, improving speed for some rare cases under GNU/Linux operating system and similar.
  • Added a few new sample files (by Christoph Schilling, Horatiu Halmajan and aliponte).
  • Changed default language/locale to en_US (instead of en_GB, which is non-standard).

New in version 5.12.3 (February 5th, 2010)

  • Crash bug fix for a rare situation, in which you have constraints (sub)activities preferred starting times or time slots and they refer to no activity (reported by George Miliotis).

New in version 5.12.2 (January 30th, 2010)

  • Updated to Qt 4.6.1 .
  • Minor interface improvement: since a person reported he accidentally removed the basic constraints, it was added additional user confirmation for this, and more user information.
  • Corrected a possible compiling crash bug under MinGW (this is not a FET bug, it is a MinGW bug). It was made a hack to overpass this bug.
  • Improved export of timetable as CSV, by adding the id-s of the activities (suggested by m).

New in version 5.12.1 (January 11th, 2010)

  • Added Ukrainian translation (by Andriy Melnyk).
  • Bug fix: when modifying the number of students in a students set, the related activities will show the correct number of students, but the generation will consider the old number of students until the user saves and loads again the file.
  • Bug fix when adding/modifying a group's/subgroup's number of students, now all groups/subgroups with same name will have the same (new) number of students.
  • Improved speed of loading for large files and blocked user input while loading a larger file, because otherwise the user could obtain an incomplete file (minor bug reported by Volker Dirr).
  • Minor interface improvement: when exiting FET and choosing Save file, if you press Cancel, FET will not exit anymore - reported by Soyeb Aswat
  • Minor interface improvement: added a shortcut button to advanced functions in Time shortcuts section.
  • Minor leak fixed (when removing a group or subgroup).
  • Other minor bug fixes, when removing a group or a year.

New in version 5.12.0 (December 16th, 2009)

  • Added shortcut buttons on the main form (suggested by more users, especially: daviodan, Massimo Mancini, Paolo Cataldi). They can be deactivated from Settings Interface menu.
  • Increased max activities to 15,000, max days per 'week' to 35, and other limits, and improved memory management. Now you don't need to have much virtual memory and memory usage is lower. This better memory management may bring a small slowdown of the generation, although in rare cases the new version may be faster. Speed variation depends also on the platform. More details about the possible slowdown: I compared times by starting parallel generations with the same random seed, which produces the same timetables in identical steps. I noticed usually less than 10% increased generating time, but in rare cases for some unusual files a bit more, maximum 17%. From the official examples, the worst situation is for the file Hungary/Bethlen/2007-2008-difficult/Bethlen_2007_2008.fet, with about 17% slowdown from FET version 5.11.0 to FET 5.12.0. I apologise for this "downgrade" of speed, but it is necessary.
  • Updated to Qt 4.6.0
  • Improved add activity dialog, by Volker Dirr: if in activities dialog, you select a filter and then try to add an activity, the values in this filter will be selected in the add activity dialog (this was also suggested by daviodan).
  • Minor interface improvements.
  • Changed help management (added links to online help).
  • Corrected/updated translations.
  • Code cleanup.

New in version 5.11.0 (November 5th, 2009)

  • Updated to Qt 4.5.2
  • Converted all dialogs to Qt 4 Designer files suggested by George Miliotis. Compilation time is now shorter and intermediary and executable files are smaller.
  • Added constraint teacher(s) min days per week (suggested by several users).
  • Added constraint teacher(s) or students (set) for an activity tag maximum hours daily (suggested by several users). It is not perfect and must be enabled from settings menu.
  • Added constraint students (set) max gaps per day. It is not perfect and must be enabled from settings menu.
  • Very rare crash bug fix (reported by Marco Barsotti).
  • Constraint room not available times permits now multiple constraints for the same room (so, you can use multiple constraints with different weights and preferences for the same room).
  • In add/modify activity and modify subactivity dialogs, the students are displayed in a tree-like structure (suggested by George Miliotis).
  • In all constraints dialogs, added a nice filter (suggested by daviodan).
  • Changed name of constraint: MinNDaysBetweenActivities becomes MinDaysBetweenActivities.
  • Added a count for activities list and constraints list.
  • The constraints with tables now contain an X (nicer look), also centered nicely, and they have colors (which can be enabled in settings)

  • Improved the names of constraints: "2" activities grouped, ordered and consecutive are now "two" activities grouped, ordered and consecutive.
  • Code cleanup.
  • Added a new Italian sample file, by Marco.

New in version 5.10.2 (July 21st, 2009)

  • Speed improvement if user has constraints activities same starting time, 2 activities consecutive and 2 activities ordered and activities not overlapping (idea and partial code by Volker Dirr). In some cases, the speed improvement is very high. This has to do with the initial ordering of the activities.
  • Other minor speed improvements (idea and partial code by Volker Dirr).
  • Added a Persian manual by Hamed SadeghiNeshat.

New in version 5.10.1 (July 12th, 2009)

New in version 5.10.0 (July 1st, 2009)

  • Leaking bugs fixed (closed Qt widgets were not removed).
  • Bug fix in generation algorithm. This bug is not seen in practice, but the code in generate.cpp was incorrect in a minor portion. Specifically, it corrected tests done when the user has constraints of type students early max beginnings at second hour, without max gaps per week for students, with max or min hours daily for students.
  • Added constraint teachers max days per week (suggested by Marco Barsotti).
  • Made the results directory customizable (user can choose it) suggested by Massimo Mancini. Important: under Windows, the default location is not the usual one, but $HOMEfet-results (C:Documents and Settingsusernamefet-results or C:Usersusernamefet-results)
  • Fixed a bug: if user deactivated some activities, in some cases he could not generate a timetable (if using preferred times for (sub)activities).
  • Added a filter in add and modify dialogs constraints activities not overlapping (suggested by Yush Yuen).
  • Added a new feature in the timetable generate dialog, which allows you to see the time when the highest number of activities was placed (suggested by Yush Yuen).
  • Added a Catalan translation of the manual, by Joan de Gracia.
  • Changed the name of the html timetable files.
  • Corrected many translations' layout (by Liviu Lalescu).

  • Minor bug fix by Volker Dirr - highlighting the same teacher or student set, for html level >= 5, did not work correctly for advanced statistics export.
  • Improved compilation time and memory consumption by modifying the data reading and parsing routines (additional checking/tests needed here).
  • Minor memory leak fix (normally, not noticeable).
  • Minor interface bug fix (description of constraint teacher max gaps per day displayed incorrectly information about the gaps, writing "per week" instead of "per day").
  • Modified the order of search for translation files (firstly in current directory, then in current directory/translations, then, under Unix-like, in /usr/share/fet/translations).

New in version 5.9.3 (April 10th, 2009)

  • Improved a bit the memory consumption.
  • To avoid Windows problems with very large filenames, the sample file names were shortened.
  • Minor html timetables corrections (cosmetic).
  • Updates in Spanish, Arabic, Romanian and Italian translations.
  • Minor improvements.

New in version 5.8.1 (January 27th, 2009)

  • Minor improvements (code cleanup) - modified a bit the xml files to contain for boolean variables only true/false values instead of yes/no (following xml format recommendations).
  • Minor improvement: the constraint activity preferred starting time must have now the day and the hour both specified, so there is a clearer distinction between preferred starting time and preferred starting times.
  • Minor improvement - when reading some kind of invalid data, instead of crashing, now FET reports the error (like for instance duplicate teachers, or subjects, or wrong tags).
  • Minor improvements in the Italian, Arabic and Spanish translations.
  • Added a sample file from Azu Boba.
  • The index.html links now open in the same window (suggested by daviodan).

New in version 5.8.0 (January 15th, 2009)

  • Added the possibility to view locked activities in the timetables and toggle lock/unlock activities in the timetable (suggested by Azu Boba, implemented by Liviu Lalescu and Volker Dirr).
  • Added the possibility to lock/unlock the activities of a certain day (suggested by Azu Boba, implemented by Liviu Lalescu and Volker Dirr).
  • Added the possibility to lock/unlock the activities which end students day (suggested by Volker Dirr, implemented by Liviu Lalescu).
  • The constraints activity preferred starting time and activity preferred room have now an attribute, which can mean that some constraints are added permanently by the human operator and cannot be unlocked from the view timetable form (suggested by Azu Boba, done by Liviu Lalescu and Volker Dirr).
  • Minor bug fixes (very rare crashes).
  • Minor improvements - when viewing the timetable, the detailed activity view is updated correctly (suggested by Jose Cesar Fernandez Lopez).
  • Other minor interface improvements.
  • Minor improvement: the directories under Windows contain now the correct back-slash, instead of forward slash.

New in version 5.7.6 (December 8th, 2008)

  • Minor interface improvements (Command line version now has the parameter "htmllevel", the old one was "timetablehtmllevel", which still works. Added description in the README file of the default values. Other interface improvements).

New in version 5.7.5 (December 1st, 2008)

  • Added constraint 2 activities grouped, which is the non-oriented version of constraint 2 activities consecutive (the activities can be placed in any order, but one near the other) (suggested by sherman)
  • Added an additional test to ensure that constraints same starting time are not impossible
  • Very minor bug fixes (when working with redundant constraints same starting time/day/hour). This bug is most probably unnoticed.
  • Added an additional sample file by Zsolt Udvari (Bethlen, Hungary).

New in version 5.7.4 (November 24th, 2008)
