A potentially serious issue came to my attention regarding version 2.2.3 of HearThis. I decided to remove that verison from the download server until I can fix the problem. If you have already upgraded to version 2.2.3 and your Scripture data does not use any of these markers:
\r, \iot, \io1, \io2, \io3
then this issue does not affect you and you can continue to use HearThis 2.2.3 with no problems whatsoever. Of those markers, only \r is used in Scripture. the others are used only in introductory material, so if you are only using those markers and you are not recording the introductory material, this problem will not affect you either.
If you are using one of those markers and are using HearThis 2.2.3 to record chapters or introductions that do contain one or more of those markers, you will probably notice what appears to be missing or corrupted data. In fact, none of the clip files was altered, but they may no longer correspond to the block of text they are associated with. Until version 2.2.4 is released with a fix to this problem, you have two choices:
- Revert to version 2.2.2. This is probably the safest approach. Note that to do this you will have to manually uninstall HearThis 2.2.3 first (using Add or Remove programs).
- Continue to use 2.2.3 but carefully avoid recording anything in a chapter or introduction that uses one of those markers, unless you are recording the whole thing.
When 2.2.4 is released, it will include an automated data migration to re-align any clip files affected by the change that wa sintroduced in 2.2.3. However, the data migration will not do anything in any chapters or introductions where you have either recorded or manually skipped any blocks using version 2.2.3. This is because it would be impossible to know what - if anything - needs to be cleaned up. Although I hope this will not end up adversely affecting any of our users, I thought it would be best to try to make everyone aware of this. If version 2.2.4 tells you that the data migration was unable to clean up one or more chapters and you need help to try to resolve problems, please reach out to me using this forum, and I will make it a top priority to help you.
