|CyberSoft releases free updates to the NutriBase series of nutrition managers. Each update fixes all the bugs reported by NutriBase users up to the release date of each update. These updates also include enhancements, database updates, and new software features. You are eligible to download all the updates for the version that you purchased. The following is a record of the NutriBase updates we've released this century.|
v.11.1, March 5, 2012
This version provides support for using web-based synchronization folders. Configuring NutriBase to work this way will synchronize all your NutriBase installations to use the latest data (food logs, recipes, meal plans, etc.) no matter which computer you made the latest changes to or where these computers are located.
v.11.0, January 3, 2013 - NUTRIBASE 11 IS RELEASED!
This version updates the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference to SR25.
We increased the maximum number of Recipe, Meal, Meal Plan, PFI, and Client Folders from 26 Folders to 100 Folders.
We now calculate the Potential Renal Acid Load (the PRAL Formula) for Food Logs to allow users to estimate and track the Acidic Load of their Food Logs. This information is presented in your Food Log Ratio Reports.
Food Log Copy – if you overwrite a Food Log day with the "Copy Selected Meals" option, NutriBase now overwrites only the selected meal rather than the entire day.
Scrolling through the Food Log calendar is improved and it no longer prompts to Save.
We enhanced the Shopping List's Gram/Pound/Ounce Converter when editing Shopping List items.
Added touch screen support for Windows 8. (Gesture support is coming in a free NB11 update.)
Metro-like buttons have been added. Additional Metro features are coming. New color formats load much faster than previous schemes.
You can now Quick Add items to recipes, meals and meal plans.
NutriBase 11 loads faster and performs more quickly than previous editions of NutriBase - up to tenfold improvement in some areas. This is particularly true when users have many recipes, PFI's, Meals, Meal Plans, etc., organized into many Folders.
v.10.2, August 30, 2012
Changed POG (Percent of Goal) report so that if the graphical bar is greater than the page width, the bar is not closed at the end. We also enhanced POG reports to work better in landscape mode.
Added more mouse wheel support for when NutriBase runs in a small window (like it sometimes does on the smaller “netbooks”).
The nutrient selection window for the Minerals Tab previously had three options - not selected, grayed, and selected. We changed this to not selected or selected to be consistent with the other tabs.
Improved speed when saving PFI, Recipes, Meals (most noticeable if you have a large number of items).
v.10.15, June 25, 2012
The Home window graph styles have been enhanced. (To access these colors and styles, RMC - Right Mouse click - over the Home window graph.)
Food name and Advanced Search: if your search string ends in BERRIES or BERRY NutriBase will changed either search string to "BERR." This assures you will locate stings containing both "BERRIES" or "BERRY".
The search results window's row heights are now based on the font size used to display the data.
v.10.1, May 27, 2012
NutriBase now supports Canadian Nutrition Facts Tables. These publication-quality labels can be produced in English, French, English/French, or French/English. The NFT's conform to Canadian rules and regulations for Canadian labels.
This edition features a major update to the Canadian Nutrient Files. NutriBase now uses the most current Canadian nutrient database.
We fixed some minor display issues having to do with MyField columns (nutrient columns users can add and track for nutrients not already tracked in their version of NutriBase).
v.10.0.3, April 09, 2012
We enhanced windows to help them open up to ten times faster.
v.10.0.2, February 17, 2012
This version will run in a virtual machine.
This version will correctly restore and display data formatted using various Regional Settings.
v.10.0.1, January 21, 2012
Added a Calories Progress Bar (Personal Plus and higher editions) to the NBFTE window to make it more convenient to see your overall progress.
Removed automatic sorting from Exercise Logs.
Added RMC option for MyPlate report in Food Log window.
v.10.0.0, January 16, 2012 - NUTRIBASE 10 IS RELEASED!
We updated the nutrient database to use the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 24.
We updated the Brand Name data to include 800+ new food items, including data for menu items from 19 additional restaurants.
NutriBase (Personal Plus and higher editions) introduces the “NBFTE” button - the “Next Best Food To Eat” button. Based on what you have eaten so far today and what your daily nutrient goals are, this button generates a list of foods for you to consider eating next. The first item in the list will be the most effective food for bringing you closer to all your daily nutrition goals. The second food item will be your second best option, etc.
NB10 (Professional and higher editions) supports a new type of report: the Nutrient Density Index (NDI) Report. The “NDI” is an estimate of the mean (“average”) value - per calorie - for the sum of the total amount of each of up to 25 nutrient factors.
We enhanced the Nutrition Facts Labels (Professional and higher) to give you the ability to select additional nutrients to include in your label. In addition to the basic label data, you can now add Polyunsaturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat, Potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Chloride, and Molybdenum.
With NB10, you can conduct your food searches across multiple databases, including: USDA, Canada, Brand, PFI, PUF, PUI, My Recipes, NB Recipes, and Meals. You mark the checkboxes displayed for the database(s) you want to include in your search.
NB10 (Professional and higher) features a streamlined Food Cost Database. This new feature allows you to more conveniently and quickly edit existing food costs, add new ones, and/or delete existing records. It makes it easier than ever to cost your recipes, meals, and meal plans.
With NB10, you have the ability to perform Global Rankings. This means you can rank foods based on the nutrient values for selected nutrients across any or all food categories, subcategories, and across multiple nutrient databases.
NB10 provides color-coded “Alerts” for Sodium, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol. When the amounts of these nutrient factors are low, medium, or high for the serving amount of any food item, we provide you a visible alert (dark green, light green, yellow, red). The background color behind the nutrient value is changed in your search results to let you know the status of this nutrient.
NB10 features a “Quick Add” option in your Food Log window. After you have added a food to a client’s Food Log, you have the ability to highlight any number of food items, RMC (Right Mouse Click), then select the option to add the “Items to Quick Add.” This function allows you to build a list of Quick Add items – complete with serving sizes and meal category. Thereafter, you can click the “Quick Add” button to add any of these listed food items to any food log for any day. This can be a real time saver.
In the Nutrient Density View, you can now specify your comparison level not only in calories (i.e., “100 calories”), but in grams as well (i.e., “100 grams”). Now you can compare the nutrition for a fixed number of grams of every food item in your search results. You get apples-to-apples comparisons based on calories or on gram weights.
We added new home window graphs, including diabetic graphs, steps-per-day (pedometer) graphs, and mood graphs.
Now, you can delete PUF or PUI items. This allows you to keep your food lists current and relevant to your needs.
NB10 features a quicker, smarter, and easier-to-use Food Category window. If a search has been completed, the “Apply” button automatically applies your newly selected food categories to the current search.
We added a new User Preference (with a default value of “on”) to automatically reshow Food Categories if a search turns up zero hits.
We added new combo-boxes at the top of the main NutriBase window. These combo-boxes hold, for example, recipes and recipe folders. These drop-down menus now include a compact Lookup Bar. Just click the first letter of the item you are looking for and jump there without scrolling – handy when you are dealing with long lists (like recipes).
We improved and enhanced the interactive calendars in the Home Window, Food Log, Food Log Copy, Exercise Windows, User to Meal Plan Copy Window, and the “Reports” Tab.
NB10 lets you display your own favorite quotes on the Home Window (in the lower left corner of the windows).
We’ve added new Office and Windows 7 color schemes to your NutriBase Options.
We replaced the My Pyramid Report with the newer My Plate Report.
We added a “Steps-Per-Day” button in the Food Log window for individuals who wear a pedometer to track the number of steps per day that they take. You can graph the number of steps per day against your daily body weight on your home window if desired.
We added an optional “Mood” button to allow clients to track mood over time. You can graph this against your client’s body weight on the home window if desired.
You can assign your Personal Food Items shopping list category from PFI window rather than having to go to the shopping list.
The recipes you create as a result of rescaling an existing recipe can now be rescaled if desired.
v.9.1.1, September 19, 2011
Professional and higher editions now offer you the optios to report footer to include date and time, date only, or no footer.
When adding multiple meal plan days to a shopping list (in a single pass), recipe ingredient calculations are now more accurately calculated.
The Recipe Refresh function can now handle refreshing recipes that include many multiple nested recipe.
The Enterprise Editions now have user-specific Food Categories rather than global (as is the case with the Professional and Consumer editions.)
Default CIM Image is JPG rather than BMP. When selecting an image, default is to the NutriBase images (I am assuming most people want one of these images or can navigate to their own folders if they are looking for a specific image).
v.9.1, June 9, 2011
We changed the DRI goals for Fluoride from mg to mcg.
We changed the exercise auto record function to work for dates prior to the current date.
We fixed a bug in the user food log spreadsheet report in which gram weights were not reflected correctly in certain situations.
v.9.0.9, May 19, 2011
Fixed the Recipe Report (Excel, CVS) which in certain situations, did not show all selected nutrients.
v.9.0.8, April 22, 2011
We updated goals for water intake - in fluid ounces - based on the DRI suggestions.
NB9 now calculates cholesterol goals based on the individual's Daily Calorie Allotment divided by ten up to a maximum of 300 mg. (This can be easily overrided if desired.)
Fixed the Comprehensive Report for Food Logs that were showing the same food log records for each day when selecting two dates via "cherry-picking" (holding the Ctrl Key down and clicking calendar dates).
v.9.0.7, April 5, 2011
Improved the Recipe Refresh function to quickly refresh recipes that include many multiple "nested" recipes (i.e., many recipes within recipes within recipes, etc.).
The default CIM image is now JPG rather than BMP. And when selecting a custom image, the default location is to the NutriBase images (rather than your Documents folder).
When adding many meal plan days to a shopping list at once, recipe ingredient calculations are now calculated in a more accurate manner.
NB9 Professional (and higher) Editions give you the ability to change your report footer's date and time, date only, or to include no footer whatsoever.
Enterprise Editions now have Food Categories specific to each user rather than being global.
v.9.0.6, February 1, 2011
We added a new type of report - a Food Log Spreadsheet Report with Goasl and Exercise, Single Day.
We fixed a bug in which Recipe Tabs could get "confused" under certain rare situations.
v.9.0.5, January 16, 2011
We added a new Food Log spreadsheet report that includes the user's nutrient goals.
We fixed the calculation of PCFA ratios in the database for a small number of newly updated Brand Name entries - installing this update will automatically update your data (recipes, meals, etc.).
This edition includes a fix to a bug in certain Meal spreadsheet reports - Professional and higher editions.
v.9.0.4, December 17, 2010
This version now tracks three additional nutrients. Vitamin K2 MK4 Menaquinone-4(mcg), Vitamin K1 Dihydrophylloquinone (mcg), and Fatty Acid 18:1-11t/18:1t n-7 (g)
Now, you can delete the data for a range of Food Log days (rather than deleting them one day at a time).
Client Reports - when a date range is selected for a food log type report, any days with missing food log data are ignored. This allows the software to calculate average daily intakes more accurately. This new feature applies to the Food Log, Comprehensive, Percent of Goals, and Calories In vs. Calories Out reports. For the Professional and higher editions, this ignoring of days does not occur for group reports.
v.9.0.3, November 9, 2010
We added a summary of rolling average values for several variables to the diabetic report.
v.9.0.2, October 31, 2010
We fixed a bug that now allows DRI reports based on one or two meals per day (1/3 or 2/3 DRI) to be calculated correctly.
v.9.0.1, October 18, 2010
We updated the USDA SR22 nutrient database with SR23. We added new food items and nutrient updates for the nutrients currently tracked.
We performed a minor update of restaurant listings.
NutriBase reports now give you the ability to create reports with Food Log, Personal Food Items, Recipes, and Meal Items capitalized as you desire. Your capitalization options include "as is", "all upper case", "all lower case", or "mixed case."
This update added a new PDF report format - "Meal Plan Report w/Meal Item Breakdown."
Added a new Meal Plan report format - "Meal Plan Nutrient Spreadsheet, Total Plan (Excel, CSV, RTF). (Professional and higher editions only).
Added a new Meal Plan report format - "Meal Plan Nutrient Spreadsheet, Single Day (Excel, CSV, RTF). (Professional and higher editions only).
Added a new Food Log report format - "Food Log Nutrient Spreadsheet, Single Day (Excel, CSV, RTF). (Professional and higher editions only).
This version features the ability to specify the DPI when you export your publication quality Nutrition Facts Label images (Professional and higher editions).
We found a bug in the View search. When the "Advanced Food Categories" were selected during a View search, all food items in a given food category were shown rather than just the selected subcategories. Fixed.
v.9.0, September 29, 2010 - NUTRIBASE 9 IS RELEASED.
This version features the latest USDA SR data and tracks 14 new nutrient factors. We updated the USDA database to the current release, and included the Errata published by the USDA on August 10. 2010. With this release, we began tracking these new nutrient factors: Vitamin E, Added (mg), Vitamin B-12, Added (mcg), Fatty Acid 22:1 t (g), Fatty Acid 18:2 t,t (g), Fatty Acid 20:3 n-3 (g), Fatty Acid 20:3 n-6 (g), Fatty Acid 20:4 n-6 (g), Fatty Acid 21:5 (g), Fatty Acid 22:4 (g), Choline (mg), Betaine (mg), Vitamin-D2 (mcg), Vitamin-D3 (mcg), and Vitamin-D-D2+D3 (mcg).
We updated the USDA Data and the Canadian Nutrient Files by removing superfluous household measures. Now, instead of seeing six or eight listings for a food item (expressed in multiple units: cups, tsp, grams, oz, portions, servings, 3" diameter, etc.), we list only the 100 gram listing plus one household measure that is easily converted to other measures. We kept more serving sizes in certain cases when it made sense to do so (example: 1 large banana – 8.5" long) This reduces the number of food items listed – the hits - by 50% to 80%. This, in turn, makes it faster and more convenient to locate specific food items.
With this release, you also have the ability to show or hide all 100 Gram Portion sizes. Since this is the most common portion size provided by the USDA (but arguably the least used portion size), you now have the ability to view these entries (over 7,000 of them) as desired.
NB9 features an additional 1,359 food items.( We added data for 3,008 Brand Name and retired 1,649 listings.)
NB9 features 1,025 Unique Brand Names – an increase of 169 brand names over NB8, which featured 857 unique Brand Names.
NB9 provides data for 60 restaurants – five more than were featured in NB8.
NB9 provides data for 4,475 restaurant menu items – an increase of 680 menu items over NB8, which provided data for 3,795 restaurant menu items. NB9 now classifies restaurant data into four distinct categories.
NB9 introduces a new software feature: when adding foods from the nutrient database to a Food Log, Recipe, etc., you now have the option to specify the amount you want to use in calories. This feature works great if you use a digital food scale. The serving size will be shown in grams. This feature makes it possible to create, say, 100 or 200 calorie servings of, say, high fiber cereals. Or to create mixes composed of various foods at various calorie levels. This makes it easy to create pre-measured snacks to take on the go.
NB9 provides two new types of searches: Food Name and Brand Name searches. When you conduct these two types of searches in NB9, you enter the food name or brand name. NutriBase will search across all food categories to locate hits for you. The Food Name search is the default search type for NB9.
The previous Food Item Search is renamed to "Advanced Search" option. NB9 searches for your specified food name and/or brand name (and other options) across all user-selected food categories.
NB9 allows you view four to eight times as much data in the same number of lines of your search results. This is achieved via two major changes: 1) NB9 allows your to show or hide all 100 Gram portion sizes in search results for Food Name, Brand Name, and Advanced searches. 100 Grams is the most common serving size in the USDA data, but it isn't often specified in recipes and food logs. And, 2) NB9 drastically reduces the number of servings sizes per food – instead of viewing multiple instances of a food item in teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, pints, and gallons, you view only the most important entries, then convert them to the units and amounts required.
NB9 features newly designed windows for selecting nutrients to display in search results. These new windows were redesigned to show nutrients in a more accurately categorized format. These windows are available in several locations, including search results, reports, and graphs.
In the NB9 Food Log window, NutriBase now includes two pie charts. These charts present you with your Goal PCF Ratio – your food intake goal for your percent calories intake of Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fat – and your Actual PCF Ratio for the foods you've recorded so far … this gives you the feedback needed to make adjustments to your food intake to end your day at or near your Goal PCF Ratio.
NB9 provides a newly designed tabbed Food Log Information section. The Food Log information section is located in the upper right corner of your Food Log windows… this new one provides three tabs that provide additional information not previously available: Food Log Details, Food Item Details and a Day Summary.
With NB9, we added two additional lines for you to use in your custom text Report Headers. This provides a total of five lines for you to include your business name, address, phone number, email address, etc.
NB9 features PFI advanced Search Criteria options (like the ones used in other database searches). Now, you can specify to search across Food Name, Brand Name, Description, Servings Size fields – or any combination of these. You can also specify AND or OR type searches.
NB9 improves the Client (or My Setups for personal editions) Report: Food Log Query Report.
NB9 now permits you to generate a word processor report (RTF) for your Shopping List. This allows you to edit your shopping list using your word processor if desired.
v.8.4.2, September 7, 2010
This version (Professional and higher editions) includes an adjustment that permits you to correctly print Nutrition Facts Labels directly from the label creation page (rather than creating a label image and then printing that).
v.8.4.1, September 1, 2010
Fixed a bug in the 24 hour profile method of tracking calories in which the setup suggested incorrect daily calories.
Fixed a issue wherein some goal amino acids were showing up with the incorrect heading in reports.
v.8.4.0, August 13, 2010
This version calculates metric BMI values with improved accuracy.
The metric shopping lists are no longer converted to pounds (from grams) as it is for English formatted shopping lists.
v.8.3.9, June 1, 2010
You can now generate Excel formatted reports for Recipe, Meal, and Personal Food Item (PFI) reports (Professional Editions and higher).
We changed the nutrient fields window so that different sections are easier to view.
We enhanced NutriBase to function better on lower resolution PC's (think "netbooks").
Fixed a bug involved with adding or deleting an exercise log column.
Added actual and target PCFA Pie Charts to the Percent of Goals (POG) reports.
Fixed a bug in Tracker Logs graphs that occurred when certain situations existed.
You can now sort the columns in Exercise setup.
Fixed a bug that occurred when editing a profile's nutrient goals - sometimes the editing process only accepted the first change.
You now have the ability to select the columns you want to include in your Client/User Exercise Calorie Expenditure report.
Fixed a typo: "S&ndwiches" to "Sandwiches" in food category listings.
In the Notes and Lists section, we added the ability for NutriBase to save your font and font size selections via the Right Mouse Click (RMC).
v.8.3.8, February 11, 2010
Added exercise workouts to Junior, Personal, and Personal Plus versions.
Added ability to time stamp exercises in workouts.
Added ability to sort exercises in workouts on different columns.
Added ability to edit time stamp column in workouts and daily exercises directly on screen (or via the RMC).
Added ability to view, via hotkey or RMC, PFI, Recipe or Meal item details when in Organizer.
Added ability to view, via hotkey or RMC, recipe ingredients or meal items of entry in Food Log.
Added ability to use mmol/l instead of ml/dl for glucose tracking (Metric v. English measures.
Added ability to create a user selected home page graph start date.
Added a message window to point out the food category filter when a food item search results in multiple categories displayed.
Took out the backup and restore of a user's backup options so it won't change when restoring from a computer on a different operating system.
Fixed a bug where, under certain circumstances, multiple food log files for the same day were created.
v.8.3.7, January 14, 2010
Added a note on the Client Intake Manager (Professional Editions and higher) and personal versions Export Data Page explaining that how to select multiple days. (Although we use the Windows standard method, some users have never done this before.)
We added an image and a colored background behind the Food Lookup (Searches) section of NutriBase... some new users didn't know where to go to conduct a search and this helps identify the search area.
Changed the recipe grams/oz serving size window to have all error messages shown on the window itself rather than a pop-up error window (it sometimes came up behind other windows and could cause confusion).
Modified the Enterprise Editions to import data and restore data backups without requiring repeated entry of the user's password.
v.8.3.6, December 30, 2009
The Client Intake Manager (Professional and higher editions) CD's now auto-run when inserted into a CD Drive.
We also added a sample label document and a sample cover letter that you can edit and include with your CIM CD for your clients.
v.8.3.5, December 18, 2009
This update adds the ability to sort and resequence food items in the Food Log Auto-Record function.
We added column headers in exported Excel files.
The NB7 to NB8 Converter now has all conversion options pre-selected (some users were not selecting any data types to convert).
The NutriBase Restore function reminds users to standby when it is still working. (This function can take a while and it wasn't letting you know that it was really, really, busy.)
v.8.3.4, December 4, 2009
Now, when you are in your Personal Food Items (PFI's), Recipes, and Meal Tabs, you can add a selected item (PFI, Recipe, or Meal) to your Food Log, Recipe, Meal, or Meal Plan by highlighting the item in your Organizer or your Folders Tab, then Right Mouse Clicking (RMC) or by using the new button we added for this purpose. For most users, this will be much easier and faster than looking up foods again via the Search Function.
If your Organizer has multiple tabs, you can now Right Mouse Click (RMC) in the "All PFI" Tab to turn a new "Filter All Tab" option on or off. If the filter is on, only those food items which have not been dragged to another Organizer Tab will be displayed.
We added a simplified food categories window (used when you conduct food searches). Current users will need to uncheck the "Advanced" checkbox to go to this simpler window; new users will automatically use this window. This window allows you to easily check or uncheck entire categories. We recommend using this simpler and faster option unless you need to be more specific with your food searches.
We added a Filter combo box (a drop-down menu) to the right of the Search Type selection when food search results are present in several food categories. "All" is the default selection but you can change to view just the results in a different subcategory. For instance, your search may return results in "Beverages," "Dairy and Egg Products," and "Desserts." You can choose to view "All" or select to view only those items in, say, "Beverages".
The Food Log now remembers which column you sorted on previously (by clicking on a Food Log header such as "Meal" or "Time") and uses this information to add new food items into the correct places (based on the selected sort column). When you enter a new food item into your Food Log, this item is automatically highlighted for your convenience.
Now, you double-click a Tracker Log data item to jump into Edit Mode (rather than jumping there with a single click). This allows you to use the keyboard "Ins" and "Del" keys to insert new blank lines or to delete an item. The log data entry section has immediate focus when data items exist so you can enter the Log and press "Ins" if you want to add a new entry. Since you can sort items in either ascending or descending by clicking the column header for the Date column, the "Ins" key adds a new line according to your current sort direction.
The Exports to Excel Format Function did not export the "Date" column. Fixed.
In certain situations, when an item on a tab was moved to a different folder, it remained displayed on that Tab. Fixed.
In the Comprehensive Meal Plan Reports, pages after the first page included a repeated Meal Plan title heder. Fixed.
We added an improved "Predicting Weight Loss" graph to the Home Page Graph. This option will only be available if you have entered your weight in the past two weeks. To keep the graph as accurate as possible, we highly recommend you enter your weight on a regular basis.... daily being the best situation for accurate forecasting.
Imported recipes (and other imported data types) were not always listed until they were opened and saved. Fixed.
v.8.3.3, September 23, 2009
This version adds recipe and meal ingredients to search results you view in the single screen view window.
We revamped the shopping list print function.
Meal Plan and Food Log calendar view reports did not always display correct date information - fixed.
We added the ability to show Food Log time stamps on the Food Log window via the Right Mouse Click (RMC).
We also added the ability to show these time stamps on your Food Log report.
Although the actual calculation for the Mifflin St. Jeor formula calculates correctly, it displayed "+161" rather than "-161." Fixed.
We added a transmission status bar to the integrated NutriBase Emailer along with the ability to abort the email if desired.
Fixed all bugs reported through September 23, 2009.
v.8.3.2, August 26, 2009
Bug fix: If you add the food items from a meal or snack in your Food Log to a Meal, the nutrient totals may not be saved correctly. This update fixes this problem.
v.8.3.1, August 17, 2009
This is the first version of NutriBase that displays the "Water (g)" nutrient field display in fluid ounces... a unit that more Americans are comfortable with.
Added the NutriBase Apple image to the Food Categories button; this button now indicates the number of Food Categories you've selected and (space permitting), it displays the major food category names as well. (The most common error users make when they conduct NutriBase food searches is that they forget that they selected a set of Food Categories for a previous search.)
NutriBase now remembers Food Item Search "Search Across" settings for you.
We added a new feature that allows you to select Food Log food items and add them to a new or existing Meal.
Henceforth, you can delete Exercise Log Templates (necessary if you create a template containing an error).
Now, you can delete an exercise in your Daily Exercise list by highlighting it and using your keyboard Delete key.
When using the "Food Log to Meal Plan copy" feature, the Food Log days were not always displayed - fixed.
If % Saturated Fat is changed in the final screen of a Profile, it was not always retroactively correctly - fixed.
When a PFI (Personal Food Item), Recipe, or Meal View function was performed after using the Nutrient Density View function in the same category, values still reflected the values used in the Nutrient Density View - fixed.
Fixed all bugs reported through August 17, 2009.
v.8.3.0, July 29, 2009
We changed the Setup Program we are using for installations. After you install this new version, you will be able to install, update, or upgrade using one downloadable file per version. No more uninstalling prior to updating.
We added the information from "nested recipes" (recipes within recipes) to the Comprehensive Recipe Report. For example, if your "Mom's Super Spaghetti" uses another recipe called "Mom's Spicy Sauce," the Comprehensive Recipe report now shows the information for both recipes. All nested recipes are now detailed.
Now, you can copy an entire Meal Plan to another Meal Plan in the "Meal Plan to Meal Plan Copy" function. (Previously had to be copied a day at a time.)
Fixed several dialogs in which the Cancel button prompts the user for additional information rather than dismissing the window.
Added the ability to turn off "Auto Search" in the Search Engine. If "Auto Search" is turned off, a search will only occur when the "Go!" button is clicked or when the Enter key is pressed when appropriate. If "Auto Search" is turned on, you will conduct a new search each time you select a different database to search across.
Modified the formats for the Recipe and Meal report layouts for improved presentation.
Previously, copying multiple items to a Meal Plan sometimes resulted in multiple duplicate entries. For instance, copying a recipe to a Meal Plan then copying meal items to the same Meal Plan would result in multiple duplicate food item entries. This no longer occurs.
Added a few minor enhancements to the NB8 User Interface (i.e., we changed the image on the Diabetic Tracking button located in the Food Log, we added NutriBase apple images to the currently selected Search Engine categories, etc.).
We fixed a bug in the Weight Training Log that caused data to not be displayed when data was entered to days previous to the present then recalled.
Under certain circumstances, recipe reports didn't always have the pie chart proportions displayed correctly - fixed.
Tracker logs and Tracker graphs did not print via the RMC (Right Mouse Click) - fixed.
Fixed all bugs reported through July 29, 2009.
v.8.2.3, July 3, 2009
We added a new report - the "Comprehensive Meal Plan Report." This report contains the same information as the "Meal Plan Report" but it is now followed by any recipes (with ingredients and instructions) and meals that exist in the plan days selected.
When you are on the Food Log page and you double click on a search results item, the single screen view now has an additional display. This display has either % Daily Value or % Goals displayed in a bar graph format. Use this feature to compare a number of similar food items and see how they stack up on %DV for, say, Calcium and B12. Or assess how a particular food item fits with your nutrient goals. We color coded with red for "keep going," yellow for 50%, yellowish green for 80%, and green (you are there!) for 100% and up.
In Professional and higher editions, you now have the option to insert a picture of your recipe instead of a Nutrition Facts Label in recipe reports. Pictures are important because they leave little room for errors in presentation - for taste, the actual recipe is sufficient... handy if you need to prepare consistent looking dishes across 23 cruise ships.
v.8.2.2, June 20, 2009
The recipe composition report now provides the option to display the gram weight for every ingredient (as well as its percentage contribution) for a single serving of the recipe.

We added "Previously Used Foods" (PUF) and "Previously Used Ingredients" (PUI) buttons that provide instant access to alphabetically sorted lists of the food items and ingredients you have previously used in your food logs, meals, meal plans and recipes. This can save you time by eliminating the need to reconduct searches for previously used foods and ingredients.
We automatically insert a "save as" name for any Nutrition Facts Labels you create. This saves you the time it takes to type in a name for all labels you generate. (For example, the Nutrition Facts Label for a recipe would automatically default to the recipe's name.... you can edit as desired.)
When saving a Nutrition Facts Label to an image format, we now save only the label image itself (rather the label centered in an entire page).
On the Home Page graph, we now allow you to control the "max points per page" via the RMC (Right Mouse Click). This allows you to control how much information is displayed per page of your Home Page Graph. (Users who track their weight once a day can set up their page differently than those who track their weight once a week.)

Also added a "Profile Start Date" button for "graph from" which automatically sets the "graph from" date to the user's start date.
You can now set a User Profile calorie override that still maintains your selected tracking method but will adjust for calories expended based on your body weight. (Calories needed won't be changed but calories expended will.)

Added prompt to recommend adding a gram weight when user saves a PFI without a gram weight value (makes recipe gram weight totals accurate and makes conversions to other units work better). Added warning to not change a gram weight, serving size or serving unit on an existing PFI (since this will be reflecting in all recipes, meal, meal plans, etc. that use that PFI)

We fixed a bug in the Quotes/Tips display on the Client Information Window. We also fixed a bug in the Quick Summary Report when the user has selected flexible goals. Our setup program now installs NutriBase with Vista users in mind.
v.7.11, March 16, 2007
The PFI Manager now allows 8 decimal places in all nutrient fields to accommodate larger serving sizes (often used in manufacturing formulas). When creating new Personal Food Items, the PFI window now allows you to click the Enter key to move to next field (easier than using the Tab key).

All hits are listed together, regardless of food category. This version now automatically closes the Single Screen Summary window immediately after the user adds the selected item to a recipe, meal, intake, etc. Also fixed a bug that occurred for some users when they were adding a recipe to an intake or another recipe from the Recipe Tab of the Search window.
v.7.05, January 10, 2007
This version fixes an installation bug that caused the NB7 Meal Plan application to fail to overwrite the NB6 Meal Plan if the user had updated to v.6.23 version just before upgrading (this is a rare occurrence). This version also prevents the renaming of your Flash Drive when you are making a backup of NutriBase Diet Software.
v.7.04, January 2, 2007
We fixed a minor bug that occurred when user's sort individual columns of data by clicking the column headers... now that NutriBase used color-coded backgrounds to indicate the source of the data, it became necessary to refresh the background colors after on-thy-fly column sorts. We also added a legend in all nutrient data displays to indicate source colors (since they vary with user's Windows color preferences).
v.7.03, December 22, 2006

v.7.02, December 11, 2006

When users generate an HTML initial assessment report (Professional and higher editions), NutriBase now displays the page in your browser. You can then click File | Save to save the file for actual use on your web site. For Professional and higher editions, we changed the way nutrient goals are calculated if 1/3 or 2/3 DRI were selected. Previously these calculations only affected actual DRI nutrient values; now calculations also affect calories, protein, carbs, fat and sat fat goals.
v.7.01, November 18, 2006
Tweaked the Fitness Manager to remember when user has acknowledge changes to fitness formulas (a minor but annoying bug).
v.7.0, October 18, 2006 - NUTRIBASE 7 IS RELEASED. This new version features the latest USDA Nutrient Database, the 2005 Canadian Nutrient Files, and thousands of updates to the brand name and restaurant food items.

If you are using the XP look, you will notice an improvement in the way NB7 looks.
Convert recipes into PFI's (Personal Food items). Users can now convert their recipes into PFI's. This permits all your frequently used foods and recipes to be organized together. It also allows you to transfer your recipes (as PFI's) to your Palm PDA.
Source Codes added (Clinical and higher editions). This version adds "Source Codes" to identify where the nutrient data for specific foods come from (SR = USDA SR Data, CN = Canadian Nutrient File, BN = NutriBase Brand Name foods).
Color-Code Backgrounds. To facilitate instant recognition of sources for data displayed in the spreadsheet view, the background color for USDA and CNF data is white. The background color for Brand Name foods is light gray. (NutriBase is the only high-end nutrition software package that can display the data for more than one food item at a time, so this feature is irrelevant to competing products.)
You can now include NutriBase ID Numbers in your reports (Professional and higher editions). NutriBase ID Numbers are unique identifiers for each food item in the database. The USDA items follow the precedents established by the Nutrient Data Laboratory's Nutrient DataBank numbers and the Canadian Nutrient File data follows the numbering system established by Health Canada.
NB7 now supports a new option for calculating calorie requirements by supporting the EER (Estimated Energy Requirements). You can set this method as your preferred method for calculating calorie requirements if you like. (You also have Harris Benedict, Mifflin St. Jeor, and direct entry from an indirect calorimeter to choose from.)
Client Notes are now selected and edited through a calendar interface... no more opening a note and reopening a note to edit a different day.
The Intake Window now provides left and right arrows for quickly changing the day you are recording your intake to.
NB7 now displays NutriBase Tips, Dieting Tips, and Quotes. You can select which option you prefer via your Prefs. You can also edit these features as desired. You can copy any displayed item to the Windows Clipboard by clicking the new Copy Button on the display window.

The PFI Window is now automatically closed after adding the PFI to an intake, recipe, or meal.
NB7 added a Copy to Windows Clipboard option to facilitate the use of this informative window in your documents and reports.
v.6.23, July 30, 2006
Added network restore capabilities for NutriBase Network Editions. Only the Master User has this ability.
v.6.22, June 23, 2006
Changed the way NutriBase behaves when you add a recipe to another recipe, to an intake or to a meal. Henceforth, when you add a specific amount, say, 4 oz or 200 grams of a recipe, it will always remain 4 oz (or 200 grams) regardless of any modifications you make to the original recipe. This allows recipes that contain nested recipes to remain stable, at least from a serving size perspective. Adding a non-specific serving size such as "1 serving" still changes subsequent recipes if you modify the original recipe. This feature was requested by food manufacturers who use NutriBase for their product formulations.
v.6.21, May 17, 2006
Added the ability to resize PFI nutrients window.
v.6.20, April 18, 2006
Fixed a bug that occurred when a Success Criteria sort was set up and selected and the Client Window was set in Prefs to not appear. NutriBase gave an error saying, "Unable to open client intake file". This is no longer an issue.

v.6.18, March 3, 2006
Added a "Client Information" report to the Fitness Manager report option.
v.6.17, February 23, 2006
Fixed a bug that caused a mismatch in information between the Client's Goal Summary and the Client Information Windows when using the Metric Measurement option instead of the English system.
v.6.16, February 16, 2006
Fixed a bug that prevented the Analyze Program from working with Meal Plans that contained no recipes (a very rare occurrence). The following changes affect Professional and higher editions only. We added 900+ Commercial Ingredients to the Professional and higher editions. The word processor style recipe reports now include pre and post yield weights. We modified the Processing Loss feature in recipes as follows: When users increase or decrease yield loss for a recipe, the serving size no longer changes. Instead, the number of servings from the recipe will increase or decrease as necessary.
v.6.16, February 8, 2006
These changes affect Professional and higher editions only. This version adds the ability to edit and add an allergen statement to your Nutrition Facts Labels. This version also supports the review and editing of the ingredient listing prior to creating your Nutrition Facts Label.
v.6.14, January 27, 2006

Added a flexible report option and enhanced an existing flexible report template format.

v.6.11, November 20, 2005
When you add an existing recipe to another recipe, you can now add it by specifying the number of servings, by gram weight, or by ounces. (Previously, you had to add the entire recipe to another recipe.)This version also fixes a bug that shut down the setup program when no costing data had yet been saved.
v.6.10, November 17, 2005
We fixed the goals graph under the Intake Manager to retrieve special abbreviated nutrients labels.
We enhanced the formatted reports to show the PCFA ratio when appropriate; the Percent of Goals report comments now expand if it requires more than one line.
Fixed Junior version showing wrong nutrients when displaying All Nutrients in the Intake Manager.
Bug fixes to the Analyze consumer versions.
v.6.09, September 1, 2005
This version of NutriBase features a newly updated 40-30-30 "Zone" Meal Plan.

v.6.03, June 18, 2005
If you are using NutriBase Junior, Personal, Personal Plus, Clinical, or any of the Network Editions, this version allows you to track up to 20 additional nutrients. We call them "additional nutrients" because they are nutrients that are not already tracked in NutriBase Diet Software.
The NutriBase word processor, in Professional and higher editions, will now remember your margin settings for top, bottom, left and right margins.
We modified the Backup and Restore feature to reduce the size of backups significantly.
Updated 40,000+ values for Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
Added a message that appears when you have over 500 PFI's and you've set up only one PFI Folder... this message suggests you better organize your PFI's by setting up and making use of your PFI Folders.
Fixed all know bugs reported as of June 18, 2005.

You can save labels as BMP, JPG, WMF or PDF formats. You can edit the nutrient values that will appear in your NFL prior to creating the label.
We fixed the duplication feature on the Intake Manager which erroneously indicated the meal or snack that the duplicated item was assigned to (duplicated items should not be assigned to any meal or snack).
When a user modifies a Client's Information, pregnancy calories - when applicable - now reflect what was originally set up rather than the initial default value.
We fixed a bug in the Analyze Program that prevented the PCF Ratio for a single day in a Meal Plan Formatted Report from appearing.
We fixed a bug in the Analyze Program that prevented the PCF Ratio for a single day in a Meal Plan Formatted Report from appearing.
NutriBase now checks for deleted Client Specific Foods (CSF's) that were used in previous editions of the NutriBase Intake Module. It turns out that one documented user was creating CSF's, adding them to their intakes, then deleting them. We modified NutriBase to recover the deleted data (to prevent corruption to the recorded food logs) then removed the ability for users to delete CSF's.
Under Client Notes, we added a glyph on the calendar days for Client Specific Days only for the days that notes existed for.
v.6.0, April 8, 2005 - NUTRIBASE 6 IS RELEASED. This new version features the latest USDA Nutrient Database (SR17), the latest Canadian Nutrient Files, and thousands of updates to the brand name and restaurant food items. NB6 tracks 37,000+ unique food items. This version gives you the ability to locate SR17 food items by their Nutrient DataBank numbers.
NB6 now tracks estimated net carbohydrates.
You can generate shopping lists directly from Meal Plans.
We added a pop-up abbreviation listing that you can access whenever nutrient data is displayed.
We organized our Nutrient Selection List into more logical groupings.
PCF pie charts have been upgraded to become PCFA pie charts.
We implemented a new memory manager which allows for better allocation of resources and improves the performance of the NutriBase search engine - the fastest PC-based search engine in existence.
The new Personal Plus Edition provides support for RDA's, the Canadian RNI's, and the US/Canadian DRI's. (This feature is not incorporated into the Junior or Personal Editions since these versions don't track vitamins or minerals - the heart and soul of the RDA, RNI, and DRI's.)
In the professional editions, we've added a completely rewritten version of the NutriBase Intake Module that is much easier for your clients to use, uses pictorial help, requires no manual, and is only 5.5 Mbytes in size, making it half of its original size so that your clients can download the program more conveniently from your web site.

Sometimes exercise calories from the previous method were not cleared out and were displayed in the Goal Summary window.

We added detailed error messages if Windows cannot run any NutriBase component. Fixed a minor bug in the recipe scale function.
v.5.14, July 23, 2004
This version adds a "Start of Week" box to the Meal Plan Single Day Detailed Report. If you have selected to show "Day Names" on the report, then the day name shown will key off of this day (so you don't have the same start date for every report).
v.5.13, June 23, 2004
This release contains three new "Mr. America" body building meal plans. These plans were designed in cooperation with Dave Barry (Mr. America 1990 and Mr. USA 1999). Each new meal plan contains three meals and three snacks per day for four weeks. Each of the three plans comes in eight calorie levels. Plans include a core plan, a high protein plan and a pre-competition plan.
v.5.12, June 9, 2004
This update adds the ability to override the automatic selection of the AEA (Average Energy Allowance)Tables for children under 18. This allows you to select the age-appropriate RDA, DRI or custom nutrient goal for children.
v.5.11, June 5, 2004
The NutriBase Information Tracker now supports an additional tracker option for diabetics. Users can customize the tracker items to suit their particular tracking needs.
v.5.1, May 24, 2004
This version of NutriBase supports the new optimized meal plan format. In fact, this new version comes with eight meal plans (at eight calorie levels). Previously, you imported each calorie level separately. This caused eight different copies of each recipe to appear in the Recipe Manager. This new version is optimized to import all eight calories levels at once and share the recipes across all calorie levels. This improved performance and eliminates the need to delete redundant recipes. We also released a free Meal Plan Manager update for NutriBase IV users so they can import these new, optimized meal plans too.
v.5.08, April 23, 2004
Added an exclusion search capability to Recipe Search. This allows users to locate all recipes containing a given food item(s) but exclude recipes that include a certain food. This is useful, for instance, if you need to locate all recipes that contain egg but do not contain peanuts (or other allergens).
v.5.07, April 21, 2004
Added the Process Loss feature to the NutriBase Recipe Manager so that users will be able to adjust for process loss during cooking.

v.5.05, April 17, 2004
Added the correct "goal restart dates" to the Client Manager and the Analyze Program for correct display on-screen and in custom reports.
v.5.04, April 15, 2004
Modified the Body Fat Percentage tracking graph to restart from newly modified start dates when the user modifies her body fat/weight goals.
v.5.03, April 13, 2004
Fixed a couple of display places to show a client's new modified log on start date instead of their "old" start date.
v.5.02, April 11, 2004
Recipe gram weights are now highlighted in a boldfaced navy blue font. Users were emailing support frequently to find out where this data was displayed on the Recipe Manager window.

This first update to NutriBase 5 provides the ability to toggle the weight (or body fat) chart from 3D to 2D.

The database has been updated and we added a number of exchange values.
The Palm application has been updated to prevent certain rare but possible situations from causing grief. Two minor bugs have been fixed.

v.4.72, July 30, 2003

This update adds an email option to NutriBase Backups... now, you can email your backups to yourself (for use on a different PC at home, perhaps) or to anyone else.
We've added new recipe setup macros that give you added flexibility to your custom recipe formats (Professional and higher editions).
We've added the ability to restrict your nutrient ranking functions to 100 gram servings sizes - the most common serving size in NutriBase.
You can now edit recipe ingredient names and comments (these show up in recipe and analysis reports).
We now take body fat values out to one decimal place.
We've added the Injury Factor (also referred to as the Stress Factor) to your calorie calculations.
We also offer free Meal Plans, each at eight different calorie levels. Fixed a bug in the under/over setup grid, in the Planner, and in the Client Group Analysis features. All bugs reported through June 5, 2003 have been fixed.

Added the ability for all NutriBase network versions to use a non-Windows folder for reading and writing INI (initialization) and USR (user information) files for improved network security. Fixed a bug in the column sort in the Nutrient Density View. Problem occurred on column sorts conducted after the first column sort.
Fixed a bug in Fitness Manager that gave an error message when deleting a workout. The Intake Manager gave incorrect data when the user changed days using the calendar within the Intake Manager i.e. clicking on the calendar button on the Intake Manager window rather than the main NutriBase toolbar.
Fixed a Meal Plan bug that affected meal plans exported when they contained NutriBase Meals in them.
All bugs reported through January 9, 2003 have been fixed.
v.4.65, November 20, 2002

v.4.64, October 28, 2002
This update adds the ability for you to save your Nutrition Facts Labels as either a BMP or JPG Format. (JPG is web-friendly; BMP is document-friendly.) This version also provides a new type of Meal Plan report that lists the foods eaten by meal or snack for one week at a time.
You can now cherry-pick or select a range of food items when you are exporting nutrient data.
The Intake Module now displays calorie and exchange information.
The Intake Module now never expires.
v.4.6, October 14, 2002
This version introduces the Nutrient Density View for database, PFI's, recipes and meals. The Nutrient Density View will show you the nutrients for any given number of calories. And this gives you an "apples-to-apples" comparison of the nutrient value for all the foods you are viewing. (Instead of comparing the nutrients in a strawberry with the nutrients in a watermelon, you can now compare 100 kcal of strawberry with 100 kcal of watermelon).
Ability to rank columns while in the Nutrient Density View. You can click the sort box in the upper right corner of every column header to rank all foods based on that column while you are viewing the nutrient information in the Nutrient Density View.
Under/Over report capability. Now NutriBase (Professional and higher editions) can auto-insert comments (that you create and/or edit) into your intake analysis report when a client is under or over any goal for any nutrient. These comments appear when you generate your analysis reports. Typically, "under" comments suggest good sources of the nutrient you are deficient in and "over" comments provide safe upper limit information.
24 Hour Exercise Tracking. Now you can track your 24-hour activity and exercise calories separately from your 24-hour food intake. This results in a direct comparison of calories burned with calories eaten, and this results in a calorie surplus or deficit.
Adding foods to Personal Food Item (PFI) List now prompts for serving size. This means that you can now save PFI's (new food items you've added to the database) in the serving size you use most often as opposed to the serving size you located information for.
Track Monitored Exercises. This feature lets you take the calories (and other information) provided by monitored exercise machines (like programmable treadmills or heart rate monitors) and enter in the results. Now, if your treadmill changes inclination and/or speed over the duration of the exercise, you can still enter a good estimate of calories burned.
Right-Mouse-click for spreadsheet view. This lets you select what you want to do with the selected food item... makes recording intakes, meals, recipes, etc. even faster.
Wider Gram Weight Entry Range. This version has a wider gram weight range (instead of 1- 999 grams, you can now enter gram weights of from 1-9999 grams).
Support for Indirect Calorimeters. If you use a portable indirect calorimeter or similar device for obtaining your resting metabolic rate, you can enter that into NutriBase now.
PFI, Recipe, and Meal Managers now have resizable notebooks. Now, you can make these windows taller to view more of your PFI's, Recipes, and Meals at once.
% Daily Value Button added for Recipes and Meals. Clicking this button shows you the %DV for your recipe or meal.
v.4.5, June 25, 2002
This major update introduces the NutriBase Intake Module (Clinical Editions and higher), which allows you to burn a CD to give to your clients. They take the software home, install it on their PC, and record their own food intakes. They can add their own personal foods to the 37,000+ food item database that the Intake Module already provides. A click of a button emails the results to you for analysis.
This new version also adds a pie chart to the Personal Food Item Manager and includes a BMI Button in the Client Log-on window, the Client Information Window, and the Information Tracker.
The nutrient database was updated with the addition of 500+ new food entries. Exchange values for 5,300+ foods were updated or added.
All bugs reported through June 25, 2002 have been fixed, including a bug that prevented the Food Pyramid image from appearing on the reports of some users.
v.4.04, March 4, 2002
This update adds two graphing options to the Graphical Analysis section of the Analyze Program: the ability to track any single nutrient against body weight and the ability to track any nutrient (or nutrients) over time.
For NB8 Pro and higher editions, this update allows you to record intakes to individuals without having to first log them on as clients. This saves time when you need to analyze intakes for large numbers of individuals and have no need to compare these intakes to nutrient goals (RDA's, DRI's, RNI's, etc.). These clients are identified by an ID Number. You may add an option name and/or comment if desired. Support for individual and group analyses of these types of clients plus the ability to save these analyses in spreadsheet format has also been added.
All bugs reported through March 4, 2002 have been fixed, including an annoying but harmless bug that popped up an out of bounds error message as users recorded ingredients for their recipes.
v.4.03, February 20, 2002
This update adds printing capability to the Gym Log and to the exercise performed listings.
User Preferences can be set to turn the display of food exchanges in displays and in reports on or off as desired.
Fixed a display problem that occurred under certain circumstances - involved scroll bars that wouldn't go away.
Added the Quick Summary report to the Client Information Window.
All bugs reported through February 20, 2002 have been fixed.
v.4.02, February 9, 2002

All bugs reported through February 9, 2002 have been fixed.
v.4.01, February 1, 2002
Corrects three minor bugs: the Tool Bar didn't always refresh when users made on-the-fly changes. Double-clicking exercises in the fitness manager should behave the same as dragging and dropping exercises into the exercise log... it didn't in 4.0, but it does now. The column headers and data in the intake manager were shifted by one column. All bugs reported through February 1, 2002 have been fixed.
v.4.0, January 26, 2002 - NUTRIBASE 4 IS RELEASED.
This new edition provides an updated nutrient database which features USDA SR14 nutrient data.

v.3.05, May 12, 2001
This final release of NB2001 fixed a bug that caused exercises that were performed on days without exercise goals to not be displayed properly.
The Client Information Window weight graph now handles Kg as well as pounds.
Fixed a typographical error that occurred when the user logged on in English measurements, then changed to metric at a later time.
v.3.04, April 16, 2001 This edition adds the Client Information Window to NutriBase. This window (which you can toggle "on" or "off" in your User Preferences), displays a color-coded calendar that shows you a "snapshot" of how your client (or you) are doing. It also provides a Progress Chart and a 3-D Weight Chart that indicates desired and actual body weight. This window also provides calorie allotment and exercise calorie information. You can generate the popular client-specific Calorie Expenditures Report with a single click from this screen. This report takes client information into consideration and indicates how many calories you (or your client) would burn in performing any of 90 exercises for 30 minutes).
This update also allows you to restore the original values for all fitness and calorie calculation formulas.
We added the ability to restore your column heights and widths to the original factory values with a single click.
You can now select happy/yuck face icons or thumbs up/down icons for client calendar feedback (happy faces and thumbs up icons indicate that the client met all her goals for that particular calendar day).
All bugs reported through April 16, 2001 have been fixed.
v.3.03, February 18, 2001 New View Buttons offer themselves to you in the Recipe, Meal, and PFI Managers. These buttons allow you to view these items in the NutriBase spreadsheet view.
Click the sort button in any column header to sort all your recipes, meals, or PFI's from high-to-low based on their values in that column. (Now, you can sort all your recipes from high-to-low based on their values for calories, protein, calcium, or any other nutrient.) Click the sort button again to reverse the sort and view all your recipes, meals, or PFI's sorted from low-to-high.
You now have a custom template-driven report capability (Clinical and higher). This means you can now publish a cookbook from NutriBase in word processor format... and it will be formatted exactly like you want.
You can now publish finished, customized web page reports for your recipe-a-day web site. NutriBase will produce your web site-ready pages for you.
Enabled drag and drop in the Intake Manager. You can also drag items from a Meal Plan into a Meal.
You can now batch print Assessment Reports, Calorie Expenditures Reports, and Client-Specific reports (Clinical and higher). This means you can select the clients you wish to generate reports for, tell NutriBase to automatically generate all the reports, then save them to a folder on your hard drive. It uses the client names as the file names for the saved reports. This option saves you time when you have to generate dozens (or hundreds or even thousands) of reports for your clients.
You can now export your Client Contact List into a format suitable for use with your email client. Import all or some of your client's information into Outlook to facilitate mass mailings to your clients.
v.3.02, October 22, 2000
Added new graphical analysis options in the Analyze Program.
Fixed a typo in the word "Molybdenum" in the NSL section.

v.3.01, October 06, 2000
The NutriBase Backup and Restore functions did not default back to floppy drive after a backup was performed to a floppy drive.
Bug Fix: retired food items were not being recognized properly. (CyberSoft "retired" over 4,000 food items that had become obsolete since the database update from NutriBase 2000... retired items still remain in the database so as not to corrupt any of your older recipes, meals, intakes, meal plans, etc. that were created in earlier editions of NutriBase. Retired items do not appear during NutriBase searches to prevent you from selecting obsolete entries in new recipes, intakes, etc.).
All reported bugs have been fixed.

This version now tracks data for Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Omega-6 Fatty Acids, Chromium, and Molybdenum.
NutriBase 2001 provides information for two new food categories: "Vitamin and Mineral Supplements" and "Sports and Diet Nutritionals."

The new restaurant sections feature 4,100+ menu items from 74 restaurants.
NutriBase 2001 will auto-select the appropriate RDA, DRI, or Canadian RNI for your clients (you select your preference in the User Preferences section).
This version also supports the comparison of intakes, recipes, and meals to 1/3 RDA, DRI, or RNI.

All seven executable programs that make up NutriBase 2000 now only function when called from the main program (some users on large networked installations were running the individual executables and getting undesired results).
