Upgrade: Quality Companion 2.2

Minitab have released an upgrade to their Six Sigma product, Quality Companion.

The upgrade is a modest collection of interface improvements, (new toolbar actions, auto-filling forms etc), new import export options (always good to see) and increased flexibility (better search and editing tools, use of images within documents etc).

There is nothing that you won't already be used to seeing in other products, but they are filling out the regular feature space at a rate that seems fair for the 9 months that have passed since Version 2 was released.

I did like "Automatically Convert 2.1 projects to version 2.2 projects". A self fulfilling feature that would appeal to people who like to have a car so that they can drive it to the gas station!

The full list is here.

Oddly it looks as if Minitab skipped a version as I never noticed, and can't find any information on Quality Companion 2.1. It must have existed though as there were maintenance releases to 2.1.1 and 2.1.2.
