Dear OA LodgeMaster Users, 

The OA LodgeMaster team is happy to announce the immediate release of Version 2.0.1! We've fixed the open bugs that users reported since the release of version 2.0 four weeks ago at NOAC.

Yours in Brotherhood, 

The OA LodgeMaster Team

What Is Fixed In This Version?

Two minor improvements were made in this revision:

- The rich text file option was removed from the report actions box and replaced with a quick and easy to access button to create a PDF file.
- Some changes were made to the vital statistics report to make reporting numbers easier - unknown levels are rolled into ordeal counts and unknown ages were added to adult counts. A note was added to the report explaining this change.

17 other bugs, all reported by users, were closed in this release. The detail of the bugs and their related module are below:

What's Next In The Development Of LodgeMaster?

The next major release will be focused on enhancements. We'll be working on adding member modification history functionality, the ceremonies manager, and other user-requested enhancements. We've also begun work on adding local networking sharing to the desktop client.

We're also working on finalizing the new OALM-Online interface, which will be released soon.
