Version 2.0.0 Released
Several Important Changes
All users in an affiliate need to upgrade at the same time. Version 2.0.0 can read version 1.0.x files, but the older versions cannot read Version 2.0.0 files.
This version makes files and a a folder in the directory that it resides the first time it is run. Avoid putting on your desktop unless you don't mind clutter.
Important New Features
Start ZipEval by double-clicking on assignment or results files. After initial setup (running the first time and following the directions), ZipEval can be started by double-clicking on an assignment file or a results file. This setup is automatic for Linux and MacOs. Regrettably, it requires some manual steps in Windows. ZipEval can still be started by double-clicking on the file you downloaded. It also appears as an application in MacOs and Linux.
