New features​

  • "Show aggregation" toggle on Analysis page to show graph separators for the single runs of an aggregated record
  • "Frametime variance" (difference between consecutive frametime values) added to Analysis and Comparison page
  • New Hotspot sensors for Nvidia GPUs
  • "Inverse cut" option added to range slider to remove the selected range and save the remaining data

Enhancements​

  • Cutting a record with range slider now adds "(Cut) " at the start of the comment to better find the new file in the record list
  • added a decimal point to the app latency overlay entry

Bug fixes​

  • Range slider cutting didn't work for records without sensor data
  • Range slider cuttingt didn't always work correctly when cutting aggregated records
