v1.6.0 Released

Ends+ v1.6 are is available

Version 1.6 brings in a requested feature, as well as the ability to publish information via a web page.

Live Scores
Live scores allow you to track the ends for a game, and publish the game progress as a web page so that anyone can see it. A useful feature to allow someone to follow a game when they can’t be at the Green.

More HTML Pages
Along with publishing a web page for a live game you can now also publish web pages for Competitions and Leagues. All you have to do is create a competition or league as you normally would and then use the Publish option to make them available to everyone to see, making it easy for everyone to stay up to date.

Ends+ Account
To use the above features and publish to the internet you will need to create an Ends+ account. The pages themselves can be view by anyone.
