    • Smooth, anti-aliased, full resolution targets
    • 'Nicer' set of shot plot colours
  • Better handling of differing scoring methodologies:
    • Supports disciplines that use half-point scoring, or any values outside of 1-10, 'V' and 'X'
    • A score can now consists of a major and minor component (each a floating point number) and a display (any character or string)
  • Improved and corrected statistical display:
    • New (correct) covering circle algorithm. Cover Circle displayed directly on the target.
    • Correct calculation of best/worst shooter/range/form (calculates mean of all records of each type). Version 2.0 merely picked the absolute best/worst

    • Statistic generation improvement improved dramatically as a result of new database system
    • Graphical statistics: window resizable to allow better display of statistics
    • Graphical statistics: calculated on the correct range for each record (Version 2.0 normalises onto a single range, producing anomalous results)
    • Shooter plot: improved performance (in line with new database system) and correct display of the Cover Circle (in line with new covering circle algorithm)
