BallroomDJ 3.0.3

BallroomDJ 3.0 is a major rewrite of the user interface and includes modeless validation and easier to use edit screens.
In addition, there are many bug fixes and a few new features.

As version 3.0 has a lot of changes, there is a greater chance of bugs in the program.
I also recommend upgrading to version 2.25.6 before installing version 3.0, as it will be easier to revert back to version 2.25.6 if necessary.

(a) As always, before installing a new version, make a backup.
Copy your entire BallroomDJ folder to another location.
On Mac OS X, copy your entire $HOME/Library/Application Support/BallroomDJ folder and
your $HOME/Desktop/ folder to another location.

(b) Upgrade to version 2.25.6.

(c) Make another backup.

(d) Upgrade to version 3.0.3.

  • User interfaces have been merged into a single tabbed window.
  • Most edit screens have an updated user interface.
  • Player: Added a 'Hide Marquee on Start' toggle selection in the view menu.
