EHM Editor v0.3.2 Released

Version 0.3.2 of the Editor for Eastside Hockey Manager 1 has now been released. Aside from fixing bugs and making tweaks, the focus of this release has been the various feature requests made over recent months. The main feature requests included are separate screens for draft histories/picks (via the Competitions tab) and player rights (via the People tab) as well as improved player/staff filtering. Not only can we now filter by player rights, draft history/eligibility, league playing for and league contracted, we can also filter by whether a player has previously played for a team or in a league (this is determined by the player’s career history as well as the Previous Club field). For example, you could filter all players who played in the NCAA or a particular club in the NCAA which might be helpful for finding particular alumni.

In addition to the various feature requests, the Editor also includes a schedule generator for schedule templates and a schedule dates generator. Both of these are works in progress and will be improved over coming Editor releases. The algorithm for the schedule templates generator is very basic and I already have some ideas on how this could be improved. The schedule dates generator does not yet include playoff/tournament-specific items (such as round names, round codes and draw dates), but it will generate regular season/group dates adequately.
