Quote from: Liviu Lalescu on February 16, 2024, 05:45:04 PMOh, then I think you need to use constraints subactivities preferred starting times.


I can't imagine i missed this constraint all that time.Was going a loooooong way.Have given it a trial and its working perfect.Thanks

I am glad it works, and sorry that you did it hard until now. It is also much faster and better in the generation.

Quote from: Liviu Lalescu on February 16, 2024, 04:46:04 PMOK, I added this in the TODO. I think you refer to the constraints of type students (set) min gaps between ordered pair of activity tags?


I use this to separate two maths,kiswahili and English happening on the same day.I also use it to ensure science singles and doubles aren't appearing on the same day

I did not add this in the TODO anymore, because you were referring to activities occupy min time slots from selection constraints which are difficult/tedious to add.

So, these min gaps between tags constraints are OK, I assume, no need for a TODO item for them? Please note that if you have a constraint min days between activities say on (A1,A2,A3,A4,A5), FET will put maximum 2 on the same day, never 3. And if you want, you can raise the weight of the min days constraints to 100%, and only one activity will be on a single day.

FET News and Announcements / FET-6.17.0 released
Last post by Liviu Lalescu - February 16, 2024, 08:10:24 PM
On Friday, 16 February 2024, FET-6.17.0 was released. From the ChangeLog:

  - Updated to Qt 6.6.2.
  - Crash bug fixed when spreading the activities evenly over the week (this bug was introduced in FET version 6.12.0, released on 13 November 2023). Reported by GUEFFAZ REDA.
  - Minor improvement: if the spreading of the activities evenly over the week does not affect the data, there will not be registered a new history state.
  - Other minor bug fixes and improvements.
  - Added a new type of constraint: teacher(s) / students (set) max building changes per (real) day in hourly interval (suggested by Vũ Ngọc Thành). Unfortunately, for some files using constraints referring to the building changes the timetable generation speed might decrease with about 2% - 4%. For a file with many constraints referring to building changes we even noticed a 12% speed of the generation decrease, but this is hopefully very rare.
  - Added a new type of constraint: teacher(s) / students (set) max hours daily in an hourly interval (suggested by Cyrus Ireri, and in the past by many other users). This constraint type can be used, apart from its primary purpose, to set a dynamic break for the teachers / students.

I wish to thank especially GUEFFAZ REDA for the bug report (Facebook screenshot :) ), Vũ Ngọc Thành and possibly other users in the past who suggested the constraints of type max building changes per (real) day in an hourly interval, to Cyrus Ireri and the other users who suggested the constraint of type max hours daily in an hourly interval, to the ever so patient translators Benahmed (Arabic), Vangelis (Greek), Pascal (French), and Alexandre (Brazilian Portuguese), and to Darren for his commitment to compile the macOS version!

I hope you will enjoy this release as much as I enjoyed coding it!

Please don't forget that FET is completely free software, depending on benevolent donations, so it would be great if you could support it.
