Hill Lists 6.8 now available

October 14, 2020

Updated the underlying Database of British and Irish Hills (DoBIH) to version 17. Minor changes to the Marilyns, HuMPS, Simms, Dodds, Nuttalls, Deweys, County Tops, Synges and Hewitts. Note the Munro Top Beinn a’ Chroin West Top has been deleted, following confirmation by the SMC.

Also in version 17 the Dodds have been extended to Ireland, bringing them into alignment with the Marilyns, Humps and Simms. The list replaces the Myrddyn Deweys.

When searching for hills, I now match on ascent notes too. This lets you search for all hills climbed with a person, assuming they are mentioned in the log. Clearly if they are called Ben, you might get a few more matches than expected, perhaps use @Ben or #Ben in the logs!

When adding multiple hills on the same day, I now retain the order they were logged. This has always been the case with hills logged on the day, just not earlier days.

Bug fixes.
