As part of Serendipity Software's ongoing effort to update and improve our software, we are pleased to announce the release of the Serendipity Blackmagic version 7.1.02.

Version 7.1.02 is available as a stand alone installer or as a patch release for existing 7.1.01 users.

The version 7.1.02 release includes all version 7.1.01 patch updates along with further enhancements and bug fixes:

ENHANCEMENTS

- Default Press option added to Jobticket when using the SoftProof application. Available with the Soft Proofing Add-on Package. Any jobs using this option will open in SoftProof using the assigned Press, overriding the SoftProof default press setting if a new option in SoftProof Settings, View Options - Honour Embedded Press - is enabled.
- Support added for EIZO monitors CG279X, CG2730, CG2420, CG319X, CS2730, CS2420 when using the hardware calibration option in the Displays application.

An on-screen message prompts the user to take appropriate corrective action.

- Honour Embedded Screening option has been added to Jobticket > Postscript/PDF Options. When enabled, screen LPI and angles are extracted from Adobe separated postscript files (only) and used, overriding Media configured halftone output screening LPI and angles.
- Supercell is now enabled by default when switching Media Output Screening from FM to Halftone (AM) screening.
- Client GUI updated to Qt version 5.9.7
- Support added for the Canon imagePROGRAF TM-200 / TM-205 / TM-300 / TM-305, TM-5200 / TM-5205 / TM-5300 / TM-5305 printers.
