Update 3.9.90

Easy Royalties update 3.9.90 fixes a bug introduced in update 3.9.89 that caused the software to crash when printing multiple royalty statements

  • License copy: any associated purchases were not copying entirely correctly, and would show in the “Purchases” view as if for the original (copy-from) title. This has been fixed.
  • Problem with purchases when copying a submission quote. This has been fixed.
  • Author royalty statement – printing multiple statements will crash (result of changes made in 3.9.89) – this has been fixed.
  • (internal) fixed diagnostic messages on error from lvMgr.SetRecordSource

    Book Expo America 2011 Summary

    At Book Expo America 2011 we talked with IBS Bookmaster, Klopotek and Virtusales about their latest royalty related projects.

    IBS Bookmaster announced the release of their new rights and royalties module. More importantly, IBS Bookmaster told us that they will be releasing a standalone version of their rights and royalty software. If you purchase just the R&R module you can upgrade to their full ERP publishing solution at a later date.

    Klopotek discussed their rapid implementation of their rights and royalties module at Continuum UK and US. They also told us that they will be offering clients a MS SQL database option; currently they only offer an Oracle database option.

    Virtusales is on target for the official release of their new royalty module later this year, following its implementation at one of the big 5 publishers.
