The main changes of this version are the following:

  • The graphical interface has been redesigned, using a better lightweight framework.
  • The console window has been integrated within a widget in the GUI itself.
  • Now it is much easier for developers to edit and create new implementation checkers, because they are now written with XML files, instead of hardcoded in the source.
  • logging system has been created for easier error reporting.
  • The DPF Manager now provides an API for external developers to be able to communicate with it, performing checks and receiving the reports.
