Is there a list of new features/fixes that occurred since the last release? I looked around the Brewtarget web site and couldn't find one. Thanks!

This is what I see.

New in this release

Brewtarget v2.0 has been long in the making, mostly because we have done a massive reworking of the internals.
SQLite DB

We have replaced the old XML files with a brand new SQLite database. We have spent a long time making this as transparent as possible. If we have done our jobs well, the only thing most users should notice is brewtarget seems to load faster and is a bit faster in other places.

We will be using this change to implement inventory, multi-level undo, automatic versioning of recipes, etc. We also hope to allow you to decide which database engine you want to use -- SQLite and mysql at least, postgresql likely.

Units and Scales

This has been a very requested feature that has taken us a long time to implement correctly. You can now override the default unit (e.g., US Customary) per field, and you can control the scale (so your hops are always displayed in grams, no matter how many kilos you are adding).

Tree Views

The trees continue to evolve. They are now split into their own separate tabs and can be sorted on the fields displayed. The next release will let you select which fields are displayed and hopefully allow you to define folders.

Default Equipment

You can select one piece of equipment as the default and any new recipe will have that automatically defined as the equipment. You can do this by opening the equipment profile and selecting the "Set as default" option in the upper left.

Hop Utilization

You can configure your hop utilization from the equipment screen. This may cause your recipes to show 0 IBU. If you are seeing this, set your hop utilization to 100 on your equipment.

Default Boiling Point

I can't seem to change the boiling point of water to a lower temperature.

This is part of the mess I made of the equipment editor. It will be fixed soon.

I wouldn't call anything about this program a "mess".
I say good job, no matter what.

I definitely enjoy this software, do you guys have an idea when a bugfix release will come out for 2.0 to fix the saving of equipment?

Most of the fixes have been commited and rolled into HEAD. I'm not sure what the exact schedule is for releasing the bugfixes, but it should be soon.

Just getting started, and got Brewtarget. In the hops window, additions display as
0.0 IBU, and so main window shows 0.0 IBU.
I also had trouble w/ 64 bit mac dl. 32 works fine.
