SOOTHSAYER 1.1b released


Today we published a new release for our SOOTHSAYER self-hosted server focused on data management and stability.

It brings the VM up to date with the public service in terms of new features (Route analyis, Multipoint analysis, Mesh by visible, 3D fresnel) and fixes multiple user/data management issues identified through recent testing.
