Version 2021.4 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available! There are a ton of new features and updates in this version.

Some highlights are:
A new driving consistency analysis feature. Open multiple laps and the Z1 Analyzer will tell you how consistent you are under braking, throttle and your driving line. A great way to easily improve your driving.






Graphical updates to make the display crisper, especially under varying resolutions.

Multiple analysis screens can now be included in one layout.


Default layouts are now included.


The settings dialog, as well as several others, have been updated to the latest look and feel.


You can now easily zoom to a specific section of the track in the analysis screen by control-left-click/dragging the mouse to highlight the desired area.

Full list of release notes:
* There is a new Analysis screen - the Consistency Analysis. This screen analyzes three areas where consistency is important: Braking, Throttle, and Driving Line. When you have multiple laps loaded this analysis will let you know how consistent you are across those laps. And as we always say - consistency is key to being a better faster driver, and to making any setup changes.

BRAKING:
The braking section shows three metrics for each brake zone:
1) Average braking - this is the average brake application.
2) Maximum braking - this is the maximum brake application.
3) Braking Graph - this shows where you started to brake and where you ended braking.
Ideally all three of these would be the same for every lap. The consistency percentage for braking represents how similar these are across the laps.

THROTTLE:
The throttle section shows two metrics for when you exit each brake zone.
1) Time to 100% - this is the time it takes you to get back to a consistent 100% throttle.
2) Throttle Graph - this shows you the space between getting off the brakes through to when you where back to a consistent 100% throttle.

DRIVING LINE:
The driving line section looks at each corner with the lines driven through that corner overlayed on the track map. The consistency score is based on how similar the various lines are.
Anything over 90% is considered to be very good.
80-90 % is fairly good, but could use a bit of improvement.
If you have any corners under 80% those are the ones you should focus most of your time on.

* The Settings dialog has been updated to the latest design.

* You can now specify the font used in the Analyzer for the title bars, and axis numbers and descriptions. This option is available in the Display settings tab.

* You can specify the font sizes used to display the title bar text, axis text and sector text. This option is available in the Display settings tab.

* There is a new option at the top of the Display tab called 'Auto Scale'. Resizing the Analyzer's window with this option enabled will scale the display up and down to keep everything using the same amount of space within the window. (This is the same behavior as in previous versions of the Analyzer.) When turned off, resizing the window will not adjust the scale of the objects, leaving them exactly as they are. This allows you to create more space in the Analyzer's window for additional objects. The default behavior is to have this option turned off.

* Graphics clarity has been improved, especially when Windows scaling other than 100% is being used.

* There is now a Hertz Target option for live telemetry. This allows you to set the number of times per second the Analyzer will sample data when running live telemetry. By default this is off, allowing the Analyzer to sample as fast as possible. This is what was happening in previous versions of the Analyzer. To turn on a Hertz Target go to the Live Telemetry settings tab and scroll down to the 'Other' section where you will see the option to specify a Hertz Target rate.

* The Pro license option of having the border of a trace flash if that trace's value goes outside of specified values during live telemetry is now also avialble when you play back a recorded lap.

* The min/max/avg display in the trace title bars can now be turned on or off via 'Show Min/Max/Avg' setting in the Display tab of the settings dialog.

* There are now three options for what the min/max/avg area of the trace title bars can display. They are 1) min/max/avg; 2) cursor value & min/max/avg; 3) cursor value only. You can cycle through these by clicking in the arrows in the trace's title bar just to the left of the close icon. The settings is specific to each displayed trace.

* The Lap Overview Analysis Screen has been updated. The section that discusses your driving line has been improved to show the driving line for the referenced corner alongside the comment, making it easier to see what is happening in that turn.

* More than one analysis screen can now be opened at the same time. In previous versions you could only see one analysis screen at a time. The analysis screens now act like any other object (trace, scatter plot, etc), allowing you to better incorporate them into your layouts.

* Improvements to the Track Walk analysis screen to make it easier to use.

* You can now zoom in on the analysis track maps by dragging the mouse with the control button down. This lets you draw a square over part of the track map. When you release the mouse button the map will zoom to that square. You can customize this option in the Control settings tab. You can specify whether control drag, or a basic drag zooms in on the track map. The default is for the basic drag to move the track map and the control drag to zoom in on it. As always, double clicking on the track maps will restore the default zoom and location.

* Several default layouts are now provided. You can open these from the File->Open Layout menu. They can be used as is, or you can modify and save or delete them if desired. Basic layouts for lap analysis, traces, histograms and scatter plots are included, as well as layouts for data imported from the Porsche PCM and the AIM MyChron.
