Release Notes

Aztec Glass by Aztec Industry Solutions

Aztec Glass is the next generation software that supports the Glass and Glazing industry.

These release notes provide information on new features, changes and the technical aspects of the solution. The information in this document w ill appear in chronological order w ith new est information at the start of the document, as w ell as important notes.

Note: Aztec Glass uses semantic versioning details of which can be found at Semantic Versioning.

Important: in order for printing to work correctly, your local settings must be configured to point to the correct report folder. In the case of a single-user installation, this can be the folder where Aztec Glass is installed. If you are in a multi-user environment, however, this should be the network folder or share where the reports are held.

Additional Notes on Shapes

The way shapes work has changed ever so slightly from the Clarity Classic behaviours. A user can now enter as many different pricing markups as they desire, compared to the 10 entries in Clarity Classic. Now modern technology allows us to define as many tables as we see fit. So in order to help us not get confused when using all these wonderful new pricing tables, a new Markup Name field allows the user to add some context to the item. A good example here is to use a meaningful name when assigning the markup, e.g. “4mm Glass” applies to be used for pricing all 4mm glass types.
