Topic: Recorder 6 - Dictionary Upgrades 0000004L to 0000004Q

Upgrades 0000004L to 0000004Q  are now available from http://www.recorder6.info/page47.html  Please read this page carefully and in particular note the requirements for running the updates which are in a new format and which will not work with the old dictionary update software. The main advantage of the new approach is that it will be possible to run them from within Recorder 6 (after version 6.29).  Note that you will require a licence key to access these updates see https://forums.nbn.org.uk/viewtopic.php?id=7472

The updates bring the R6 dictionary into line the NHM UK Species Inventory as at 09/10/2019.

The new method of updating the dictionaries is a great improvement, although I was expecting the first update 4L-4P to do all the updates in one go, but it is necessary to run it for each dictionary update

Being able  to  run multiple updates is something we can do if it is worth it.  A normal update will consist of just one file, so if you are up to date there will be no need to process multiple files. This time we have multiple files . Updates and 0000004L to 0000004O are there as part of the move to the new approach. Updates 0000004P and 0000004Q are separate updates which have come out together because 0000004P was delayed pending the licence fee announcement.
